    I assume you don't want to use the fluid you drained because you drained it into a dirty oil catch-pan. Call your nearest friendly auto parts store, explain the situation and ask how much for one of their guys to run a few quarts of fluid over to your place. Probably just be a $20 tip to the driver....well worth it!

    Drive it, tell the dealership to check out the tranny for shift problems while they check the airbag light. Keep your lips sealed about taking the wrong plug out. Wipe the tranny clean of any fluid you may have spread around it.
    You know that factory sometimes does not get them filled all the way;)
