I am going to order this.  Looks like a good deal for cast aluminum.

You HAVE to check the fluid hot with the trans in neutral. It helps a lot if you put the car in neutral right after you start it, so that the pump will fill the converter back up. It only takes 20-30 seconds. Many TF's have this situation after sitting for awhile.
 
I fully agree.  Start the car, put it in neutral, fasten your seat belts and put on your sunglasses.  By that time you car should shift just fine.  There have been many articles written as to why this is the case; I've just learned to live with it.
 
I agree with Bob too, that a low transmission will give similar results, but this is so common with old Mopars that I douut you would have a leak - unless you see fluid every time you back up.

The reason why transmission pans do not have drain plugs is to force the person doing the job to take the pan off.  That way there is no excuse for not changing the filter - a very easy job once the pan is off!  It would be very tempting to open the plug, drain, close, and re-fill.
 
I don't recommend them at all.    in my opinion.

I like a drain plug to help with the fluid change.  I still take the pan off and replace the filter, just without the huge mess.
 
Thanks for the heads up about it losing prime.  I wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong with my tranny.  I have no problems putting it in neutral for a little while.  I like to warm the car up anyway before driving.

Well that was then...this is now, and most of use would never consider draining the fluid without changing the filter as well.  I like it because it helps keep the mess to a minimum.

I agree with Vick.  How many of use real enthusiasts would NOT change the filter?  I'm lazy, but if I'm dropping the fluid, I'm dropping the fan.
 
For that matter, what would stop someone from just draining the engine oil and not the filter???

The guy who owned that engine wouldn't have changed the oil regardless of drain plug or no.

From the looks of it, he could have taken the blug out and nothing would come out!

Do you think that doesn't happen?
 
Are we all under the assumption that the only people working on our cars as we as the owners?  I don't make that assumption at all.  It is only recently that I started doing my own oil changes again, and most people I know take their cars to transmission shops to get their auto-transmissions serviced.  Perhaps those of you responding to my comment do all of your own service work.  I think that's great, but I also think you are in a minorioty of car owners.  Therefore I do not trust people enough to give them a way to make a short-cut.
 
No transmission drain plug for me, thank you!
