- Not trying to save the bolt...already had a new one in hand to go in. I'm trying to save a big mess in my garage . It would also be nice to save the pan itself in case anyone should ever need it (probably me )

Yep...Pull the plug and about 4 qts of ATF will drain out. Put the plug back in, pour in 4 qts of new ATF, and call it good. Total cost is under $20 for the 4qts of ATF and a new crushable gasket and I'm good for another year which is 7-8K miles for me. Beats the 20qts I used last year doing a complete flush of the AT
