I worked at a quick lube in college. We did our trans services via the cooler line no machine. We did very few of them. People do not take care of there transmissions fluid wise it's very frustrating when used car shopping.

Texas is warm enough to give 0w40 and 5w40 a run. M1 HM is pretty thick for a 5w30. Castrol 0w30 is too.
