I made a Homemade Transmission fluid recovery machine it's a bissell spot/upholstery cleaner made to suck liquid essentially so I took some aquarium tubing fitted it to the suction hose
So you feed the hose down the dipstick tube (vehicle off)turn on the machine and sit and watch the tank fill up it holds 4 quarts
So it was a free way for me to change trans fluid without dropping pan all the time (I over maintain my ex's) and I'm just
O.C.D and nuts.

Creative solution. I just add drain plugs or use an inexpensive transfer pump.

I like to suck the fluid out before a pan drop/swap it creates less room for mess I got a pan ordered with a plug but I got 3 ex's and a Toyota so lots of maintenance at my place
