Ewww, that's pretty knarly. I don't remember my fluid looking that dark the first time I flushed. Glad the job went well, Big.
That's why it should be done every 3 years regardless of mileage.

I did mine at 40K and yes I was the pedal pumper. I swear one of my leg is shorter than the other now. I should have counted, but the initial right rear (longest tubing) of my fluid change seemed like it took 20 gajillion pumps! :razz:
It's easier and faster if you use a kit with a vacuum pump to suck the fluid out at each wheel. (approx $25 at Harbor Freight, $30 through EBay)
