    I'm sorry, that does not tell me what transaxle you have.

    On your door tag, can you tell me what letter/number it has under "TRANS"? This is on the drivers door or drivers door jam with your VIN number, etc.

    OK, you have a 6 Speed Automatic Aisin transaxle.

    On this unit, the only available servicing is to drain the accessable fluid through the drain plug. Then, refill it through the fill plug - about 4 quarts worth. Add small amounts of fluid through the fill plug after starting and running the vehicle to get it to the full level.

    You will not ever be able to change "all" the fluid at once in this unit. Only 4 quarts worth.
