I am planning on doing my own trannnie fluid and filter change.
I believe that the trannie pan has a a drain plug. How much fluid
will drain out by removing this plug. Need to know so I can go to the
dealer and buy replacement fluid first. My 2000 Sonata V6 has an
external trannie fluid filter. The filter appears to be buried under
some hoses and wiring. Is it necesaary to remove any hoses to get the
filter off. I went to Web Tech and it appears to say that only the
air filter assembly needs to be moved out of the way to get to the
Appreciate any comments from someone who has changed one out.
I usually pull the dipstick out and unplug the range switch on top of the
transmission (near the filter). I use a three-fingered filter wrench and
an extension to get the old one loose. After that, I can squeeze it out,
but it's tight.
