    All gears forward! Don't forget the manual drive lever post!

Dropped the transmission pan and the filter, dropped the valve body and found I had a blown gasket. Replaced...

    Why are there four o-rings?

    I'm going to do a pan drop and filter change for my 5R55E. The new filter kit contains four o-rings. But there are only two places on the filter to hold o-rings (see figure). Where should the extra two o-rings go? Just don't want to get confused when it's a mess under the truck. Thanks!
