WARNING: * Your car must be on a lift or up on jack stands to do this – you should not do this fluid change with only one end of the car up in the air as you will have problems completely draining the old fluid and not over/under filling with new...

Note: * Go to a marine supply and buy a gear oil pump they sell for use with outboard engines. This install takes 20 – 30 minutes of actual work and a bit of time to allow the old fluid to drain.
