    I am going to service my transmission
    (It’s long over due)
    thinking about adding a drain plug, while looking online I see that a new pan is only about $40 with a plug already built in.
    Anyone else go this route??
    I have never done the filters, fluid has been flushed at least once.

    No but next time I do my 07 4.7, I will order one of those...otherwise its a gawd awful messy job. Same with the wife's jeep wrangler. My daughter's mazda 3 has the tranny drain...man that is so nice.

    Yeah, wish I'd thought about that when I did mine. I'm thinking I'll do it again in about 15K just to clear out most of the old fluid, so maybe I'll do it then. Though most here say to go with the Mag-Hytec aluminum pan. I saw what looked to be an OEM steel pan with a plug in it, but several reviews said it leaked. Or maybe that was the kit to put a plug in a stock pan?
