    i just did mine a month ago. pretty straight forward, the drain is located at the tail shaft housing( passenger side). Remove this plug to drain out the old fluid( becareful it comes out pretty fast). The fill plug is on the drivers side of the tranny right in the middle. It takes 4 quarts of fluid to fill back up (according to the owners manual).

    What fluid do you guys use. I think I will use Amsoil ATF.

    Amsoil ATF is a good choice. Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF and Royal Purple ATF are good choices also. I wouldn't go with anything but synthetic, you want the maximum protection against wear and fluid breakdown for your transmission.

    It says "Use Only Dexron III ATF" imprinted right on the side of the transmission casing. If gear oil/synchromesh was an option, they would have put that on there.

    Just use Dexron ATF, thats what the trans is designed for. Why use the wrong fluid?? Doesn't make sense.

    I've used Redline D4 for about 4 years now. Get some thread sealer with teflon from the auto parts store for the drain and fill plugs.
