Removed my airbox to find the fill bolt on my transmission and made sure I could get it off before draining. It came off no issue but it has a spring behind it. Is this normal??? [Linked Image]

Yes I eventually realized it was the wrong plug. Put the spring back in and tightened down the bolt and found the correct fill plug. Job is done as of an hour ago. 1.5qts out, almost 2 back in. Used Redline MTL
