nicolas-eric why a drain plug? itīs useless. you have to change the filter every time you change the fluid. for that you MUST open the oil pan.

64panhead if you have a drill you can get a kit to put a drain plug in it or you can do what i did and drill a hole in the pan and weld a 1/2-20 nut to it and get a matching thread replacement engine oil drain plug. i love my auto. ask if you have any other questions

nicolas-eric iīll send you another PM in about half an hour...

dj_chizzle thanks man. super informative. i'll be looking to pick up one of those repair manuals for sure if i'm gonna be working on it more.

nicolas-eric it has no drain plug. you have toremove the oil pan to drain the tranny.
iīll send you a PM with a write-up.

Auto transmission question

i have an '04 with an automatic and am looking into doing some of my own basic maintenance such as changing the transmission fluid. what i was curious about was what kind of transmission do i have? i've seen AX-15 & NV3550 thrown around but don't know which applies to mine.
