    Really wish the forum had a consensus on fluids. I do like your list though. Mine is pretty similar:
    1. Mobil 1 0W-20 Advanced Fuel Economy/Extended Performance and Mobil 1 M1C-251A even though they're like $15 a pop.
    2. OEM ATF WS. (Good reasoning. Since a complete flush is so difficult, it doesn't make sense to mix in an aftermarket fluid.)
    3. Mobil Delvac 1 Gear Oil 75W-90. This stuff is cheap from Summit Racing.
    4. Ravenol J1C1003 SAE 75W Manual Transmission Fluid - MTF-3 Full Synthetic. (Did this one at 15k. Currently at 40k and have had zero issues with engage/disengage in all temperatures.)

    No one can agree, too many varying opinions here

    Last spring I did the auto tranny drain and fill. Replaced around 3 quarts of the ATF. Tried to do it again and found that the 24 mm socket would slip off the fill plug. The hex head of the plug isn't very tall and I think my socket doesn't have much bite due to the bevel. Is there a special socket or wrench that folks use? Or should I grind down the end of the socket to remove the bevel?
    Thanks, Tim
