    I've read that there are ways to change the transmission fluid by using the onboard computer. The trick with the lever between going back and forth between D and N, 6x. Having tried it but, I see the transmission requires 12 qts. Iv seen guys only changing 3-4qts. This isn't a true oil change. All that oil is still in the gears. How do you do a true oil change? Does it need to be flushed?
