....and a good job it looks like, as well, from an occasional peek here and there.

Safe travels.

 Ignore the torque converter ???



You must have meant to scorn someone else, there.  I didn't suggest ignoring much of anything.




Different strokes.  
Plenty of work room,  My gasket applications don't leak. I don't make special trips to get stuff like that if it's a planned job; i get it while out doing other things in a consolidated trip for self or business.
We like saving the labor cost for 45-90 minutes of work.  I'd rather do plenty of stuff besides change turbo-encabulator oil, too, though having $150-$200* more to spend towards doing them is a material amount to some of us. It's why I do my own boat work as well.... because I can, if nothing else.
If the teacher has decided she's doing it at home, then, good advice can only help her. 
* That's after buying supplies.  My dealer wants around $275 to do this job.

A bunch of stuff...

Nice write up.


Thanks.  I write technical instructions for state employees from time to time;  It must be done in crayon so that it will be understood by all employees....

Yes, well, we don't want to wear our Sunday-go-to-meetin' clothes while doing this kind of work, for pretty much that eventuality :lol: :lol: :lol:

I should have added a step before the test-drive: Go take a shower [alone] and put on some oil-free clothing. It may be possible to do this job and get no more than a tablespoon of ATF on the driveway, self, or the help, though it's also possible for a person to balance an extension ladder straight up while standing at the top. Theoretically.
