    ATF change @ 15k miles

    Decided to drain and fill........glad I did! Every time I checked the level per the owners manual it showed it was over filled. I tow a seadoo and small trailer so for peace of mind I did it 15k. I didn't take any pics of the fluid but it was darker. Here is the drain plug......

    Never argue with an idiot, they bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    I changed my transmission oil at 2000 miles. It had the same sludge on the magnetic bolt. When I rechecked the oil an plug at 7000 miles, there was no sludge on it. I think you are a smart man.
