Another stupid do it yourselfer trying to change oil on my 2013 subaru XV. I drained the cvt fluid.

Hello, I have attached a file showing how/wher to refill, The thing is, you will need a hand fluid pump to do so, You can get them at parts stores, It has a hose on the end to pump in the fluid, Must use correct fluid. I would prefer to see you use the Subaru fluid as this is same as in the trans and will intermix, Valvoline makes a CVT fluid, I think Mobile as well can be used as well but my .02 is correct Subaru fluid to be safe

here is the link
