A common trick is to use a mixture of ATF and acetone. But there's a 
catch - if you mix ATF with acetone, they will separate out in minutes, 
and the acetone will sit on top and evaporate completely within a few 
hours. That of course is the idea - the acetone thins the oil and allows 
it to creep into places it wouldn't otherwise reach, then evaporates, 
leaving the oil in place. But you have to mix it fresh, or keep it in a 
sealed container and stir it before use.
