Filter is not in the pan- my wife has an '03 Tribute with the 3.0, and trust me, it's not under the pan. From everything I have read, it's inside the tranny someplace and not accessible without tearing the thing out and down.

And, yes there is a drain plug on the side/bottom of the tranny case- you can use a 3/8" ratchet w/o a socket on it to loosen/tighten.

    BTW- the pan faces the front, it's located under the battery.

Filter is not replaceable without tranmission rebuild. If Transmission needs to be serviced just change fluid or flush

The filter is bolted to the bottom of the transmission. after you took the pan off you should have been able to see it.

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
