. They do mess up and so has Lexus at times. We as manufaturers not from the marketing point of view but from the engineering point ensure these are to be used across our network worldwide. And honestly, I don't feel any change after installation, but I heard that vibration because of bad transmission mount can occur after about 100k miles.

It was sealed on their from the factory, I didnt want to damage it and cause a leak so I will just wait till I have the 90k service done and have the dealers swap out the filter. It didn't look bad, the rubber wasn't broken and I didn't have any bad vibration. I forgot to add also note during the test level the decibel level is calculated on the engine running and using various composition of the fluids. Now would be a good time to check it and replace it if it's cracked. Then finished removing the filter.
I finally just ran the car down to fumes then let the fuel drain out of the line until it stopped pouring out. Of course don't damage the transmission while prying.

A transmission is specifically made for a specific set of properties from the fluid.
