    Remove drain plug after removing fill plug. Let oil drain, then fill. Fo a search there is a thread.

    I don't think there is a real how-to on here. It's pretty simple.

    You need a 34mm socket, 2 qts of Redline MT-90, and a hand pump for the oil. Drive the truck long enough to warm the oil.

    1. remove the fill plug on the passenger side.
    2. remove the drain plug on the bottom
    3. drain the oil
    4. clean both plugs. The drain plug has a magnet that must be cleaned
    5. replace the drain plug
    6. use the pump to add the oil. Go slow near the end so the oil levels.
    7. when oil starts to dribble out the hole, put the fill plug in and clean the cases of all oil.

    tips:
    1. do not overtighten the plugs! Hold the socket wrench near the head when you snug them down
    2. Use the socket to remove the plugs, not an adjustable wrench or other tool
    3. after a short drive check the plugs for leaks
