No, there is a drain plug on the bottom of the drain pan, but you will have to take the pan down to replace the filter. Go here for step by step instructions.

Need to change transmission fluid, PLEASE assist. is there a drain plug or does it need to be sucked out with high power equipment?


While some vehicles are equipped with a transmission drain plug, most are not. The ones that are not equipped require you to drop the transmission pan to drain the oil, which is a good idea anyway because there is a filter inside the pan which should be changed when you change the fluid. Look under your car and locate the transmission pan. If it has a plug it will usually be located on the back side of the pan. If it does not have a plug, the easiest way to drain the pan is to remove the screws from all but one side of the pan. When you have screws left in only one side, steadily loosen the remaining screws a few turns at a time allowing to pan to tilt slowly downward releasing the fluid steadily and avoiding a big mess. While you have the pan off, be sure to replace that transmission fluid filter and pan gasket. They usually come in a set. Hope this helps you out. Have a good day!

I plan on changing my transmission fluid & wanted to find a diagram showing where the tranmission oil filler bolt is located.


Hi:
Most vehicles do not have a transmission drain plug. You must remove the bottom pan from your transmission to drain the fluid and change the filter. Remember to replace the pan gasket when you do this, if a new gasket doesn't come with your new filter.

Nope. There is a drain plug on the transmission case. It is a simple drain and fill. Odyssey transmissions do not have a filter.

Xterra Transmission Filter


You first need to insure that you have a pan under the transmission and then start. Have you got an extra gasket because you will need a new one. Now remove the drain plug and let that completely drain. After that then unscrew all the bolts. remove the old gasket and put the new one on the pan that is not attached to the vehicle. Now put the pan back up and rescrew. after you have done the ensure that you cleaned the drain plug. plug it back up and refill.
