    the pan has to be dropped to gain acess to the filter. you replace the filter and pan gasket and add around 6 qts of fluid.
    the better thing to do is have it flushed with a filter. then you get the fluid out of the converter as well. it runs around 119.

    the simple nswer is yes but a flush is better
