So, as far as AMS fluids go... AMS by application brings up http://ww2.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...?code=MTGQT-EA
But some are using http://ww2.amsoil.com/shop/by-produc...n-fluid-5w-30/
So which to use for a DD with the occasional "spirited" interstate fun time?

i think the bit about overfilling is WRONG
a little extra fluid in the trans is a good thing

Just did the transmission, transfer case, and the rear diff fluid change. Man was it a pain. I changed the fluids on my S2k in the past and was nowhere near this painful. Literally took me 2 days to do the Evo, but a lot of it was because the bolts were put on by gorillas and each bolt required me to use multiple tools and maneuvers to break loose. Plus I just realized there are 2 compartments to the rear diff, and I only got the fluid (Diaqueen LSD gear oil) for the front compartment. So now I have to go back to the dealership to get the Diamond ATF SPIII for the rear compartment. So that'll take me another couple of hours to finish it since I'll have to jack the car back up and again loosen some crazy tight bolts.
If only I can find some place I trust to do it right with the correct fluids, I would probably pay someone to do it next time.

So long story short, I ended up changing my trans fluid last night, I was pretty rushed with the whole process since I had to meet up with people later. When I drained the old fluid into cans to be recycled I realized that the washer for the drain plug never was put on. The train plus was torqued to spec but i'm a little worried that its not on. I do realize that I would need to re-do the whole process just to get the washer back on so how important is it to have it on if its torqued?
Thanks in advance.
