John 90290,

In addition to my previous post on changing the ATF, you need:


1. 27 mm socket. This is needed to turn the crankshaft until torque converter drain plug is visible through the access hole.

CAUTION: TURN ENGINE ONLY IN ITS NORMAL DIRECTION OF ROTATION (CLOCKWISE FACING THE ENGINE). TURNING AN ENGINE BACKWARDS CAN DAMAGE TIMING COMPONENTS.

You also need to remove the engine compartment lower sound encapsulation cover. This is bec. the crankshaft is accessed easier from below.

2. CAUTION: DO NOT DRAIN ATF IF ENGINE AND/OR TRANSMISSION IS HOT. HOT ATF CAN SCALD.

--PERFORM ATF CHANGE WITH ENGINE STOPPED AND SELECTOR LEVER IN P.

3. You will also need two drain buckets. One for the torque converter drain plug and another for the ATF pan drain plug.

4. You will also need a 5 mm Hex socket to remove the torque converter plug and ATF pan drain plug. I tried the short arm hex key set but I didn't have enough torque. So I was forced to buy the 5mm socket.

These are all I remember.

Good luck.
