For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

1996 honda accord lx 4cly auto how do you drain transmission fluid from this car


Get a service manual from Autozone or a similar store. They usually run about $25. If you pull it out to check it, you might as well change it out. Most tranny filters are internal to a metal outer piece and there's no way to "check" them. Be sure to use fresh transmission fluid and make sure it's the right TYPE. The store can help you out with this as well.

Need to find where transmisson fluid pan is 2002 mazda 626 trying to change trans fluid & filter


  • If this is a manual then the filter on this transmission is inside the transmission and is not serviceable unless you want to pull the entire transmission and open it. You will have two plugs on the transmission. One right above the other. Pull the top plug FIRST and then the bottom plug and wait for the transmission to drain. After it drains plug the bottom hole and fill the transmission until fluid just barely seeps out the top. Then plug the top hole and this is a transmission flush on this type of transmission.

  • If this is an automatic transmission then the filter is under the transmission pan itself. Drop the pan then the filter. Clean off old gasket and install new gasket. Place new filter in and replace the pan and snug the pan bolts up. Not to tight just snug them good. Then fill the transmission with a couple quarts of fluid and turn the car on, put your foot on the brake and run the car through all gears to fill the pockets. Check fluid level and adjust accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or comments you can leave them right here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

So..I'm a female nerd!! How and can I change the transmission fluid myself? It is a 96 chevy blazer 4 wheel drive


It's not too hard at all. You'll need a decent size drain pan. You'll want to remove all but a couple of the transmission pan bolts on the bottom of the transmission. Let the fluid drain out as you loosen the last couple bolts. Once most of the fluid has drained out, remove the last couple bolts and let the pan done and pour out the remaining fluid, discard the old pan gasket. I would also replace the transmission filter, the new filter should have a new pan gasket with it. Remove the old filter, install the new filter, use some gasket cement to glue down the new gasket to the pan and reinstall and fill with new fluid. I would also check your transfer case fluid level, the transfer case is behind the transmission.

Need to change the transmission filter


get your self the right tools, the filter, transmission fluid, gasket, gasket silicon, a good wide drain pan, clean rags, some cleaner to clean out the pan like brake parts cleaner. first find the transmission pan. once located undo the bolts around the pans flange or use the drain plug to drain all the fluid. if it doesnt have a drain plug then you have to take off the pan to drain it, messy! once the pan is off you should be able to see the filter and swap it out. clean out the pan, pan magnent, put your new gasket on and use some silicon, bolt it back on. fill the trans back with new fluid. this is straight forward approach. and dont mix the oil pan with the trans pan. the oil pan is under the motor( if that helps) let me know if you need any help or you dont understand something, thanks

Transmission service


Because you say that it looks like a sealed unit, I am guessing that you have a manual tranny. I have never bothered to replace the fluid in any manual transmission I have ever had, but I have never had 200,000 miles on one either. Anyway, to get the old fluid out, remove the plug near the bottom of the tranny. It has a head that has an internal square recess. Use a socket wrench (with no socket) to get it out. To replace the fluid - find this plug and remove it before you begin - you have to squirt it into a fill hole about halfway up the transmission. When oil starts to come back out of the hole, then you know it is full. You will have to check with your auto parts store to find out what kind it takes and how much. A manual transmission has no filter.
If your tranny is an automatic, I would recommend having it flushed, because even if you remove the pan, there is still a couple of quarts still in the tranny. When they flush them, they get all of the fluid changed.
