No need to disconnect a line. Put a large shallow pan under the trans pan and pull the bolts. If you loosen one corner of the pan, you can keep most of the fluid coming out that corner. Take of the pan, remove the old filter, pop in a new one, reattach the pan (make sure the gasket is in good shape), and fill it up. A pan drop should remove about 7.5 quarts of fluid.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
Thanks, how much fluid stays in the system? My wife complained it was shifting funny today, so I checked the fluid. It was relatively clear (not nasty black), but was a dark color, and not really red at all. So I was hoping to get as much out as i can.
it does not smell burnt, and honestly, I don't think there is a ton of miles on it. If I were to guess, I would say about 40k or so. I know I changed it a while ago, but my wife puts about 100 miles a day on the car. So it could be more than I figured.
