Well.. *POSSIBLE* progress with the Focus. Maybe, just maybe, i can suck the old fluid up (soem of it, most of it, as much as it will get when its hot, etc) through the trans fill tube. IF i decid to go this route to shy away from the "Trans return line," what is the best fluid extractor? Also, im going to lok for the PCV Valve. Its either "Face the engine as you open the hood. Under the exhaust manifold to the right is the PCV valve. The rubber elbow on the line often fails and leaks" as mechtech said, or its here.. There MIGHT be hope for this car. it runs well, except for this stupid trans. Now. About those fluid extractors. Name them!
