As I’ve mentioned, I am not mechanically inclined. In the past, I have a) hated working on my truck and b) just done a “good enough” job.
But, that was back when I did all my work exclusivly in my parents driveway. Now that it lives at my new place, I’ve discovered I LOVE working on it! Having your own space, own tools, shade and beer/cold brew coffee on hand really makes things way better.
Not to mention, the floor in my garage is mopped bi-weekly and it is cool to lay on and smooth. Not a dirty, scratchy driveway.
So today, I replaced the transmission gasket, filter and did an oil change. First time doing a transmission pan gasket and first oil change at my place.
Got it up on my rhino ramps:
Spilled ATF all over:
Degreased, power-washed and sanded the transmission pan:
Gave it some enamel paint (3 coats):
Reinstalled with no leaks!
