Joel, Thanks for all your help in the past. I trust everything is well with you. I have a question for you regarding my transmission drain plug. I've changed the transmission oil, and to my surprise I found that the oil seemed very very dirty - blacker than black :) Now, I read somewhere in another post a response from you to another question, in which you suggested that tranny oil would never get as black as engine oil. Did I read this correctly or is my memory failing me? I've attached a photo of the drain plug which shows some metal shavings, and also some very black sludge around the magnet of the drain plug. Is this normal and, if not, what could this mean, ie. should I be concerned? Thanks as usual - take care.Regards,-- Enrico
