Iíve bought a spare filter/strainer but yet to install. Figured Iíd do one flush then drive for a year, drop pan to clean and install filter then refill with new oil. My oil isnít looking too bad and I donít do any long range towing.

By my observations dropping oil from drain in pan plus pulling cooler hose to power flush oil out there is approx 6 litres removed. If the pan and filter removed another 1 litre is removed leaving about 2.5 still in box. Hard to get out unless torque converter physically removed. As long as the oil isnít left well beyond the service intervals I think this approach is fine. As one Ozzy 4wd driver indicated he replaces about 4 litres of trans fluid every other oil change to keep fluid quality in check.

Any chance of a picture of the new filter/strainer? The discussion about what it actually consists of (filter or strainer) in the Jatco box has been going on for several years without a real outcome. I for one would love to know, and a picture could help resolve it.

If I remember correctly on my last auto service they fitted a Toyota {Landcruiser ?} filter ,somethings wrong if Toyota parts are cheaper.
