    1-1-5. CHANGING LUBRICANT. Proceed as follows:
    a. Wipe drain and fill plugs (1 and 2) and surrounding
    areas clean
    b. Place suitable container under transmission
    c. Remove drain plug (1).
    d. Remove fill plug (2).
    e. Allow all lubricant to drain.
    f. Install drain plug (1) and torque to 20 lb. ft. (27 N.m).
    g. Add lubricant through fill plug opening until lubricant
    just begins to drip back out of opening.
    Couldn't be more simple, that's the service manual's instructions

    Looks good to me. How often should this be done?

    ~every 30K if you use synthetics. that's being safe. where it takes 1/2 hour to do, it's worth it. you will have to get some sort of pump though as the fill plug is pretty high in the tunnel. I bought one at Kmart for $8, had the wife pump it while I held the hose in it. Took exactly 4 qts.

    Reason i asked is I had the oil changed and the mechanic said something about dropping the tranny and changing it. I was like yeah whatever. I didnt think there could possibly much to it.

    And before i get flamed for not changing my own oil my oil pan was allready full from the last one i did and havent gotten around to taking it to auto zone. I meant to get under the car and look for drain plugs just hadent done it.

    I'd never let anyone else change my oil. Anyways, when you change the tranny fluid get some thread sealer with teflon and put some around the plugs to ensure no leaking.

    I would use either Amsoil or Royal Purple synthetic ATF (Dextron III). They are both excellent products that will make your shifts smoother.

    I'd use Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF in the T56.

    I just recently changed mine, and I've noticed that it shifts smoother.

    I'm sure RP and Amsoil are just as good, but Mobil 1 is just much more reasonably priced.

    You get what you pay for! Mobil 1 is ok but not nearly as good as either RP of Amsoil. I have run RP ATF in my SS for 95K with absolutely no noticeable wear on the tranny internals. Proofs in the pudding!
