i noticed a screen on the oil plug. does oil flow thru the center and out the sides or visa versa?


then changing the tranny lube why not jb weld a small magnet to the plug to catch any shavings. i have had several motorcycles where the factory embedded a magnet into the tip of the plug

The oil pickup opening is just past the end of the drain plug so the oil will flow through the screen and into the hole on the side of the screen

As for the trans fluid, If the drain plug is steel like the motor oil one, stick it on the outside and magnetize the whole drain plug.

Great idea! Wish I had thought of it myself. Not just Smarts, but Motorcycles, Lincolns, whatever.
