Re: Fluid Change or No
It's extremely easy to change transmission fluid- it's exactly like changing the oil, if you could imagine dropping the oil pan instead.
Unbolt the transmission pan bolts, let it drain. In some cases, you may need to unbolt a motor mount and lift the engine for the transmission to clear the crossmember. Drop the pan, change the filter, put the pan back on with the new gasket that came with the kit, and pour fresh fluid.
