Okay thank you for that, your transmission has a drain plug as well as a fill plug for changing the fluid. I have enclosed the drain and fill procedure in the link below. Have a look and post back if you have more question and or need more help and we can work from there. The transmission calls for 8.5 quarts of DEXRON VI.
