So I just did my first auto trans fluid/filter change (my first on this vehicle, I'm very sure it was done at least once in the 300000 kms prior to me). Quite an experience, mine had no drain plug, so I just finished cleaning up the spilled fluid... While I was changing the filter unit, noticed a rough looking edge. Wondering if this is normal... there was no abnormal metal chunks or shavings in the fluid, the magnet had a minimal amount of very fine metal powder on it. I ran all the discarded fluid through a filter funnel.
