How do I change the transmission oil? Where do I drain the oil from? Is their a filter to change?

If you are asking about the automatic ... the drain plug is on the passenger side and can be reached without lifting the car. It seems like they put some sort of "loctite" type product on the threads as the plug was difficult to remove. You can't change all of the oil ... about 3 quarts can be replaced ... see the owner's manual for exact amount. You could do the drain & refill a couple of times if you want to do a more thorough oil replacement. You might start by not putting all of the oil back in and check the level as you don't want to overfill. One of the *long* neck funnels is useful for adding the new oil thru the dipstick opening. There is no filter that you can replace. Honda only recommends their autotrans fluid however I used the Redline synthetic ATF that meets their specifications.

I need to replace the transmission filter on a 93 g20 sportvan. Where is is located? What tools will I need?

The transmission filter is located inside the large pan on the bottom of the transmission. There will be many small 10mm bolts to remove approx 15 of them.Just loosen them because when the seal is broke on the pan gasket the fluid will start to come out that is how it is drained. Once removed you will see it sitting there. Remove it install the new one with the o ring and replace the pan gasket. The gasket usually always comes with the filter. Re-install pan and tighten bolts in a criss cross pattern equally

Does my 2003 mitsubishi galant have a transmission filter if so where is it located

All automatic transmissions have a filter, which is located inside the transmission pan. To replace filter, you will need to remove the transmission pan. Before replacing pan be sure to remove any old gasket that may still be present on pan and the mount on transmission. Refill with proper type and amount of fluid...DO NOT OVERFILL

Cannot locate transmission filter or instructions to replace

ok, here's the deal. there are 2 types of transmissions one with an external oil filter( kinda looks like the oil filter for the engine) and then there is the other type of transmission that was produced later on the 4 cylinder engines that doesnt have a removable filter. it does have a screen that is not servicable, it can only be replaced during the rebuild of the transmission. this design is supposed to be "back flushed" to remove all debris. Most good transmission shops have this type of system that pressureizes the system and does this.

If your gonna do this on your own, what you will need to do is buy 4-5 quarts of transmission fluid, drain the oil from the pan on the front of the engine, reinstall it, add the fluid, drive for 30 min, and then repeat the process.
