    Hi i just got down swaping my transmission. which was a bitch to do! i have'nt got a chance to drive it and test it i just started it and run for about a min. well my dipstick was a PITA on my old tranny on going in and its even more a PITA to go in on my new one is this a common problem or should i just try to buy a new dipstick? i pretty much have to have a pliers there just to froce it down in the tranny. I never had such a booger of a time with any dipsticks.
