You can also jack it up, take out the plugs (with a drain pan in place) and lower the car until drain is complete. Jack back up, replace drain plug, lower and and begin filling. No lift or stands required.

Just curious but why does the auto have to be on during drain/fill? (I have an auto)

Because unless the trans fulid is at operating temperature it will give you an inaccurate reading. The trans should read full when hot not cold. otherwise you will overfill it.

When changing an auto transmissions fluid, fill it up after you drain it. Then start the car and let it warm up. Once its warm top it off then run the trans though each of the gears a few times. Check it again and top if off. Then take it for a drive, checking and topping off after.

looks pretty easy to do by yourself. I was quoted $200.they also didn't know but they thought this vehicle might take 16 quarts.
