  1. Our 2001 LS430 is at 233K miles and I figured it might be time to change the tranny fluid. Not wanting to do a flush and fill at the local AAMCO, I decided to drain, drop the pan, replace the filter, and refill followed by a couple more drains and refills. Problem is, the owner’s manual indicates a 1.9 qt capacity for a drain and refill and when I initially drained it, I got 3.5 quarts out of it. If it helps, I did let it drain for over an hour.
