Hoist the car into the air, remove the bolts that hold up the pan letting one corner lower first to drain the tranny. Once you get the pan off the filter will be right there. This is a very messy job with no neat way to do it. The new filter will come usualy come with a new gasket.

Transmission filter


It should only have a filter inside the pan. If it does have an external, it would be in one of the cooler lines going to the radiator.

Wheres the transmission fluid plug located


I'm assuming this is an automatic transmission for which there will be no drain plug. If you're wishing to drain and refill the trans. you need to remove the trans oil pan and replace the filter and gasket(kit is about $20-30) and then get a funnel and refill through the trans dipstick tube. Start with 2 quarts, run and shift through all the gears and then check your lavel and fill as necesary by half quarts at a time.

Hi i have a 1996 probe trans went bad so i put a trans from a 1996 contour the bell houseing was different so i chained it i but it in and the trans wont shift right if i put it in dive it takes off in 3...


Your shifting module(netural park switch) on the trans has to line up with the mark or slot. Key on car off block wheels, put car in first and see where the module shifts and do the same for all the gears to see if they are lining up. All so check the shifting cable make sure its at the right length.
