Is it that big of a deal? I put my front on ramps, but its on a slightly downward sloping hill, so the car is close to level anyway. I don't think I would worry about it though.

Ohhhh I see. My driveway is very level, so when the front is on ramps, the car is very unlevel. I see where that would work out for ya.

I used this method as well. Filled her up, and left out the plug. When I put the car back down on all 4s it spilled some fluid out. There is enough room to reach through the wheel well area to re-install the plug.

I'm wanting to fill my trans with Valvoline semi-synthetic ATF. Anyone have a reason not too?

It's had ATF in it, propably from the start.

Thanks.

I suggest you do some reading in this forum, it has been discussed once or twice.

Thanks.

What better thread on this forum for it to appear.

No one mentions this brand or semi-syn, although it is a nationally known brand.
