      Tranny flush...run shifter through the gears during flush?

      I remember reading someone here suggesting you should take the car out of park and run it through the R/N/etc. to make sure you flush the fluid all the way out. Is this good/accepted advice? I'm about to do this for the first time. A little bit nervous, honestly

      doesn't sound smart to run through gears when fluid has been emptied out, but that is just me. I, in no way, have any technical knowledge about... well anything.

      yes, the point is, no oil, friction on the gears and also no pressure on the solenoids.

      The right procedure is to run the shifter through (30s at each position, motor running) after each fill. Flush-fill-shift-repeat until 8 to 12 quarts flushed. Each flush pumps out about 3 quarts, give or take.
