If i read this correctly your saying you changed the transmission fluid and now it will only engage reverse. The friction plates inside the transmission are no good anymore. You need to have the transmission overhauled.
The filter for automatic transmisions is in the trans. You take the trans oil pan off while draining the fluid to change. Then once the pan is off you will see the filter, it should be replaced at the same time as changing the fluid.
The filter doesn't take any oil, but when they figure the quantity, they figure either filter change or rebuild, the filter change uses about 5 quarts and the rebuild is 12 quarts. I don't have the exact amounts in front of me, but if you need them,I can look them up. Also, I am not familiar with the Holden dual cab, But most automatics are about the same. Hope this helps.
Manual transmision gears actually bathe in oil and distrubute the lubrication around the gearbox simply by the gears being connected to each other. In these boxes, the oil is not pumped as it is in automatic transmissions.
Some automatics build up oil pressure to shift gears while others use computer control. Manual trannies do build up pressure slightly because the of the meshing gears and the forcing and displacing of oil between the teeth, but nothing like an automatic.
The fluid in auto transmissions is pumped through the filter like it is in the engine. Since manual transmissions don't have a pressurized oil system, you will need add a suitable pump which will take oil from the lowest point in the tranny case and run it through a filter head (available at any hydraulic supply house) and from the filter output, back into the tranny.
You could position the filter in the engine compartment if you like. It sounds like a lot of work with little benifit. You will still need to drill into the tranny to access the oil and back in to replenish it.
I would recommend placing a magnetic plug on the drain (if there is drain) to catch the worn metal parts. If your really eager, just change the tranny oil more often and clean the metal off the magnetic drain plug.
