Universal Trans Pan Drain Plug Question
I have to change the valve body in my 03 4.0l Ranger 4X4 5R55E transmission. From what I've read, draining the pan can be quite messy. I'm thinking of drilling a hole in the pan before removal to make draining less messy. Since I'll be cleaning out the pan, changing the valve body, and the trans fluid, is this possible without doing damage to the tranny? Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice.
