How to change the transmission oil, and how many quarts to use, knowing that the SUV has what is called a sealed transmission.
Basically, these transmissions are filled using what's called a "double fill" technique. There are two drain plugs, one which actually drains the pan, and another that has an overflow collar inside that sets the level. You basically pump transmission fluid in with the engine off and the overflow plug out, until the fluid starts to flow out of the plug. Then start the engine and let it idle, pump in more fluid again until it starts to overflow again, and then replace the drain plug. This is supposed to be done with the ATF at approx. 40deg C, or basically just warm to the touch. You will likely need around 4 qts of fluid.
