Changed t case fluid today so

Out of all the fluid changes I do for my 03, the t case is always the one that gives me grief. The way I change fluid on t case is by using a pump and actually measuring(yes I'm anal about this0 .58 qt and pouring it into one of those pyrex measuring glasses. So I did exactly that and as I was pumping the fluid in there was maybe 6 oz. left and all of a sudden fluid starts coming out of the fill hole. I'm like,"Full already?" Anyway I just tried to force what was left in the measuring glass and still had fluid dripping out. Ended up with a small puddle of fluid on the ground. I had the car raised on 4 jackstands on level ground too. I was wondering if anyone ever encounter this.

Yes, I've never been able to get .58 in either and I've done the change about a half dozen times.

Due to the viscosity, you're never going to get it all out as quite a bit clings to the internals.

I wouldn't lose sleep over it

Yup. I've done it twice, but beer bong style with a funnel and .5 inch hose. I just pour it in till it leaks out the fill hole into the drain pan. Never had a problem.

A cylinder style hand pump works awesome for this job as well as the rear diff. Creates little mess.
