      Frankie b11,
      I like to do the fluid change after driving car a bit so the oil is warm and drains quicker. My car was on a lift, so it wasn't too bad a job. I guess it took maybe 10-15 minutes to get a good drain. I used a hand held pump (looks like a grease gun) to pump the new oil in the hole on the pass side top hole. I filled it to like 1/4" from bottom of the hole.
      Some guys have reported they ran a plastic tube down through the shifter hole and into the fill hole with a funnel. They just poured it in that way. I chose to pump it in from underneath. I'm sure you can do this job in under an hour.

      HI, just read your post from 2008 about changing your sparkplugs. I can't find any update on it. Whatever happened and how much $ did they charge you to change them and take out the broken one. I have an extended Bumpet to bumper warranty if that would help me at all. My stang has 42250 now and want to change them before they really encrust themselves. I'm new to this and hopefully will figure out how to view responses...lol Thanks

      I might have spent an hour or so, but I had my car on a lift. No, there is no pan like with an automatic, just a drain plug. I would remove the top (fill) plug first, them the lower (drain) plug. I would do it with the tranny warm, the oil will drain faster, and more sediment will drain out with the oil. Replace drain plug. Now, I used a suction gun I bought at a parts store. It looks a bit like a grease gun. I would pull the piston all the way back, un-screw the top, hold the gun tube vertical and pour it full of oil. Replace the top (with a piece of plastic tube attached. Put the free end of the plastic tube into the top fill hole and slowly push the piston upward pushing the oil into the tranny. I have always been told to fill the tranny to about 1/4" BELOW the bottom of the fill hole. Re-install plug and you're golden.

      I am going to do the manual transmission fluid change.

      How long did it take you to change the fluid? I am going to do mine soon, is it draining from a plug or pan. I have a stick too and I have seen folks say there is no pan but a drain plug.

      Thanks
