Any particular type of transmission fluid you use? I'm pretty far from a dealership, so I'll probably need to order it?

I use the Mityvac extractor for my engine oil changes and transmission changes. Beats the hell out of messing with the oil pan drain hose and works great for the transmission.

Probably a sticker on their. My guess is 15w40 diesel oil, same as engine. As close as your nearest Wal-Hell, or truck stop.

Actually, recommended maintenance schedule now days says "300 hour or Annual", not just MCOCD.

Also, you should also check/clean the filter (more like a screen than a filter) and it's o-rings. First suction out, then finish draining via plug - see picture.

Hey'!! - don't be taking away a reason for me to head out to the man cave... I don't want to be board - and get stuck making the decision to drive the wife to Macy's or the mall so I can sit there and stare while she looks at everything in the store....just sayin'.... : D
