Default 2005 Mustang V6-Automatic Transmission fluid change

I am getting ready to change my Transmission fluid and the manual says 11.9 qts. How much fluid will I actually need if I am draining the transmission and changing the filter?

You have the special tool required to fill the transmission? How do you plan to drain the converter?
Best to take it to the dealer or a trans shop and have them do it with a flush and fill machine.

I'd like to know the same thing, even though I'd be giving the car to a shop.

i`m a major diy guy, but i took mine in for the flush, and its not cheap. but its the best way to do it. the filter screen doesnt really need to be changed. if there are no signs of leaks, there no reason to drop the pan.

you can drop the pan, and replace a good bit of the fluid with a hand pump and special fittings, but checking the level and getting it right is complicated and messy.

when I did mine I think it took 5 quarts with the filter change. I did not do the convertor. It was clean enough that I just did the filter. You are right it is messy. The problem with taking it and have it flushed is that they don't change the filter. I like changing the filter this way I feel better.Just My opinion

the dealer by me said around 100k, it could use a filter,but because its just a screen to catch chunks of gears, was not so critical, like a oil filter is. and they can do a complete service job, filter, gasket and flush. ( for more money of course)

ya, ford imagineers musta stayed up late and worked hard to figure out a way to make it almost imposable for us diy guys to service the trans. would have been so easy to put a drain bolt and a dip stick in the thing.

i saw a write up by a guy on a different forum where he installed a drain plug, and drilled and installed a elbow in the pan, used braided flex hose to bring it up in the engine bay, and used a pc of speedo cable and made his own dipstick. great for draining and filling. if i can find that writeup, i`ll post it here. :smoke:
