If you posted pics of you actually showing people where the drain and fill bolts are and maybe some tips on how to do the drain and refill this thread would be sticky material.


Good thread none the less. :smiley:

Fair enough. Haha. I watched someone do it, so no pics to go along with this.

The fill hole is in the front of the engine and to fill it, you pretty much need to make a beer bong with a tube long enough to reach the hole from the top of the engine. Pour in about 3 quarts of fluid, till it reaches the bottom of the fill hole.

I can't tell for sure, is the fill plug on the bottom of the transmission?

Sent from AutoGuide.com App

The fill plug is more towards the side of the transmission, it faces the front of the car. The rest of the bolts around it are not 24mm so just get your 24mm socket and find a bolt that fits it based on the picture and you'll be ok. I actually removed the bolt just above it and that wasn't it, not sure what it was for honestly but that wasn't it.

Combine the thread if needed!
