I would say change it and the filter. Just that way you will know for sure what is in it if you ever have to add agan. And you dont know how long its been sence the filter has been changed.

Bunky You should use the ATF and a Simplicity filter. Not all filters are created equal. Just because a number crosses doesn't mean it is made to original equipment specs and might not have correct valveing in it.

The simplicity filter number is 1650954 for the external filter mount. We have a nother brand of filter laying arround that lookes like it would fit but I would just use the simplicity.

NOT ALL FILTERS ARE CREATED EQUAL Some filters have bypass valves some do not. The ones that do the bypass valves are set at different pressures. Some filters have anti siphon valves some do not. Some filters have both. A lot of cheap filters have neither. Cheap filters might have the right filter paper in it but very little of it. Just because a filter has the right size threads and the right size 0 ring gasket does not mean it is the right filter with the correct bypass valve or anti siphon valve or has the correct micron size and amount of filter paper for the application.
