THIS CAR HAS THE FILTER ON THE TOP OF THE TRANSMISSION. IT LOOKS JUST LIKE AN OIL FILTER. YOU NEED A 6 POINT WRENCH OF THE SIZE 15/16ths. REMOVE THE DRAIN PLUG, 8-10 QUARTS COME OUT DEPENDING IF YOU RUN THE TRANSMISSION THROUGH THE GEARS OR NOT, WITH THE CAR OFF. THEN REMOVE THE FILTER. IT NEVER HAD MORE THAN A LITTLE TRANSMISSION FLUID IN IT WHEN I TOOK IT OFF. EXPERTS SAY CHANGE WHNE HOT. I SAY EITHER WAY HOT OR COOLED DOWN. NOT COLD. THAT WAY YOU CAN REMOVE MOST THE CONTAMINANTS AND NOT GET A BIG MESS OVER THE TOP OF YOUR TRANSMISSION..

In almost every vehicle found on the road in this country today the transmission filter is located inside the transmission. Changing the filter is usually done at the same time as changing the fluid, since in most cases the only way to do either is by removing the fluid pan which is bolted to the bottom of the transmission. This is obviously a messy and time consuming job, which is why most shops will charge an hour and a half labor for it, as opposed to just a half hours labor for a simple oil change. Occasionally there are vehicles which use a spin-on type filter, much like an oil filter, which can be found near the side or bottom of the transmission. In these cases, the fluid is usually drained from a fill plug just like the one found on the vehicle's oil pan. Note: most cars do not have this option. Usually after the filter is replaced (it is found just above the pan) the gasket is replaced, using a small amount of RTV gasket compound along with it, and the pan is installed. It is not uncommon to find a silver dollar sized magnet located in the bottom of the pan. Don't be alarmed, this is put there by the factory to pick up any excess metal shavings or iron particles, and should be cleaned and replaced in the pan. Once everything is installed, the fluid is then usually added (amount varies based on the vehicle) through the dipstick tube using a small narrow funnel
