Default How to Change Your Tranny Oil With No Clean-Up

I had to do the deed of draining my trans fluid. I know from reading all the posts of what tools you need, jacking up the car, fluid spills, etc. I bought a Mityvac fluid extractor last year for changing the oil. It worked up to a point until it started leaking. Found out that synthetic oil breaks down the seals. So I ended up fixing it, not knowing if it would work. I brought out all the stuff I needed to do the job, ramps, wrench, rags, cardboard, etc. Setup the extractor and hot-damn it worked. Pulled out 4.5 quarts, with no leaks. No more hot-ass oil on the hands and arm and all over the driveway. I only bought 4 qts. I knew if I needed more the stealership is only 3 mi away. Strange thing is when I checked the level hot and cold everything was good. I'm wondering if I even need that 1/2 qt. No, it was overfilled from before, I checked. Link from Amazon
