Re: [DML] Transmission Fluid and Changing Procedure

Paul, I'm assumming you have an automatic transmission...

Definately use what the manual recommends.  It still applies - as long
as you don't have an engine/transmission swap.

The drain plugs are indeed like the oil plugs and I think Mr. Hervey
sells the "user friendly" replacement kind.

You will refill the transmission fluid through the transmission
dipstick tube and should use a funnel with a strainer.

There's also your transmission filter, gaskets and final drive to
consider.  The workshop manual covers that.

If you have access to a lift, it's way easier to accomplish and a lot
less messier.
