Did see the drain plug for the trans.
Don't have a factory manual yet.
Any help would be much appreciated!

Just to let you know though, this will only get about 2/3 of the fluid out, the only way to get it all out is with expensive equipment...
If it's really, really, really nasty, you might want to have a shop do a complete fluid change.

I had mine power flushed to make sure all the fluid was changed, (60 bucks!!) and the filter is just a mesh
screen - EZ to cleam.

Any one out there have a Factory manual for an 88 GL they want to part with for a few Euro's?

You might consider leaving your A/T alone if it has gone this long without changing screen/fluid. I beleive this is a 3/36 maintenance interval item, and there is little to be gained 11 years after the last scheduled service.
I have heard lots of bad things about doing a trans fluid replacement this late in the game. Some kind of quirk that is common with sealed hydraulic systems. I too had some suspicious transmission problems after doing a "total fluid replacement" on my 86 4wd A/T wagon. May have just been a coincidence, but I dunno...
If topping off your fluid doesn't cure the slippage, I doubt that a fluid repalcement and new screen will help much either. Definitely get some more opinions if you decide to go this route.
Good luck, John
