So, I took off the trans pan (I believe), which gave me access to the transmission filter. This was after I ran the engine to get most of the coolant out of the tranny by way of the cooling line.
I'm not sure exactly how much fluid I collected, but it was way more than the 3.5L the manual said. Might have been the 17Q that Chuckster referenced, but it seemed less than 4 gallons... Maybe not.
Anyway, I've got a new tranny filter, new gasket, new rigid cooling line and 4 quarts of new tranny fluid, since I only expected to drain about 3.5L. When filling the rest of the fluid, does it go into the same fill spot (tranny dip stick), or is there a secret spot for the remainder?
