The entire sytem circulates the SAME fluid. Use only Mercon V fluid in this transmission.

Changing your tranny fluid isn't too hard. It's not that hard or mysterious. It's just kind of messy. You have to make sure to drain the torque convertor as well as the tranny pan when you do it.
The transmission takes 12 quarts of fluid. Mercon V is the stuff to use, don't use any other type of fluid. If you have a tranny cooler you'll need a quart or two more of fluid depending on the cooler size.
When refilling it you need a nice long funnel to out into the trans dipstick tube. Start by filling 4 or 5 quarts into the car. Check for leaks, then start the car. Then slowly add 4 or 5 more. After that cycle the transmission thru the gears slowly (don't drive it yet). Then check the fluid level. Add more if it needs it. Take it for an easy drive thru your neighborhood(no racing) to cycle the fluid thru the tranny. Then Check the fluid again, add more if needed.

Lol, i didn't mean changing the fluid was hard, he's changing transmissions. Original thread led me to believe he was rebuilding transmission. We cleared that up thru pm's. :)
