tranny service

Now that I have the motor rebuilt on my Durango I want to do a tranny service. Especially considering the obvious lack of service. I've heard nightmares of people having problems after doing a service because of the pan gasket not seating correctly or something. Just wondering if anyone has any input or precautions. Obviously it takes ATF+4 but I was wondering if theres anything I can do to prevent any issues. I certainly don't need MORE issues...lol

Pray with the miles sometimes issues arrise from messing with pan/filter internally. It's a simple process thou drop pan clean surface install parts reverse.

CAUTION: One thing to keep in mind, after you remove the flat filter, and pry out the filters old seal, be sure to install the new seal in the trans. FIRST, then install the new filter. DO NOT put the seal on the filter before installing it.

pan and filter does not change all the fluid you only change about 6 quarts I recommend getting a complete fluid flush. If done correct it back flushes the filter and all the fluid will be changed. DONT USE JIFFY LUBE/I had mine done at Dobbs if I remember it was 120.00 bucks. MY opinion.
