Nice! Thanks to covid I had enough pho take out lids so I took a pic when I did this last weekendFirst drain very black, but smelt/felt OK... second like dark chocolate with a hint of red if you looked at it long enough, kind of like that Ember Black metallic color... third was still dark brown, but I’d run out of time and energy at that point so I fired up Vida, reset the counter and warmed it up for the level... finally the color of the pint or so I got out when setting the level started to look like transmission fluid:
Just shy of 80k miles on my XC, I have some records and can say no signs of previous changes.
A was the original drain
E was the final leveling
