    The rear pumpkin has two bolts. One in the bottom (drain) and one about half \way up (fill). Remove the bottom to empty and fill it through the top hole. The best way to fill it is to simply fill it untill fluid comes out of the top hole.

    I am not certain what the change interval is for the tranny. This info should be in your manual.

    There is always cheaper fluid but remember that you get what you pay for. The stealership price is mainly labor charges. That is why it is so much.
