driver side ( I got the V-6 4.0 liters ) and goes out over front
driver tire. Then I hook up a funnel attach to the open Hood.
I will pour the new transmission fluid MERCON V which is if I
remember correctly 2.65 liters and wait for the gravity to do the job.
I will do it as soon as i t gets warmer outside north of montreal
quebec canada. I should give you feedback in a couple of weeks...

Find a gear oil bottle top/cap (then one that look like a ketchup bottle top), Put it on your bottle of ATF (ive found most fit), shove it in to make a tight seal into the hose, you can squeeze the bottle to get the ATF into your tranny plug, just run the hose out from under the truck enough to make the bottle higher than tranny, try to keep low spots at high as possible, and Squeeze away!




Your goin to need more cheapy clear hose than in this picture.

huh so you can fill it by taking the shifter off? that would definitely be way more simple and straight forward
