Although the fluid is listed as "fill for life I figure it wouldn't hurt to change it since I was at 125k miles. Here are the repair manual instructions: The transmission fluid: I believe the official fluid capacity is 1.7 quarts, but I used both.
This is how much room you have: This is my little setup: The extensions give me a long enough handle to break the bolt loose. Again, once you break the bolt loose, you can removed it the rest of the way by hand.
I recently changed my transmission fluid and figured it wouldn't hurt to share how I went about it. It's pretty simple as I assume many on this forum have already done it, but hopefully this might help someone.

I carefully poured in a little bit of transmission fluid at a time and let it fully empty into the transmission before adding some more to the funnel. Even a screw-up like me did not spill anything here, so if you take your time, you.
I bought the fluid from Crate Engine Depot along with some FE5 rear shocks. It's pretty expensive, but I figured since I'll probably do this only once or twice in this car's life, it's no big deal.
