Il got really excited about installing my fumoto valve during my first oil change at 1400 miles and started taking the transmission filter off. I quickly realized it didn't look like oil (also I was thinking why they put the filter sideways) anyway screwed that filter back in and calmed down found the oil filter drained my oil and installed the valve with no problems.

Ok my question is on the transmission filter it says oil filter on the side
holding my oil filter up next to the trans filter they look like the same filter
Are they??
Thanks

I'll learn from my mistakes

They are not the same at all. The AT filter is a special order # and about 22 dollars. The AT filter is designed for a working pressure of ~3X engine oil pressure.
