    On a flush, I could never figure how they get the fluid past all of the check balls and valves, and through the pump. In the pump there are the vaines and It must be turning to get the fluid through. And if you have ever taken a torque converter apart its hard to believe that the fluid could be removed without it spinning.
    My opinion is drop the pan and change the filter. Which they would install a drain plug in the bottom of the pan. Shure would make the job a lot cleaner.

    The torque converter is spins as long as the engine is running. That is how they flush, using the pump inside the transmission, while at idle.
