if you remove the pan do not let the pan hang by one or two bolts or the pan edge may bend. I found this out while changing the flluid in a Volvo I had once. I allowed the pan to hang a bit and when I put the new pan gasket and refilled it, the new gasket leaked. Later I found out the pan was bent a bit. Just be careful whatever you do. Lastly, the transmission will last much, much longer with proper fluid replacement.
Go Mountaineers! Or at least go canoeing
