Thanks for clarifying that! I'll do that later after putting the new fluid in.

Hi again guys. Got exactly 3 litres of new ATF in today after checking the level both cold and hot and checking the dipstick with the engine running. I can feel the improvement in driveability already and I realise I've only changed about 40% of the fluid. I'm planning to do around 1000 miles before repeating the process. Thanks for your help!
