V6 Auto Tranny Fluid Change

OK, I've gone through hundreds of posts and cannot find an answer. Being somewhat lazy, I decided to ask for guidance with a new post.

I have a 2015 LT2 RS with automatic transmission. I would like to change the transmission fluid. I see where the drain plug is, no problem. However, I am baffled as to how to refill the unit with new fluid. That is, where the heck do you put it in? I assume that, with no dip-stick, you take a plug out of the side and fill until it starts to run out the hole.

Where to you pour the new stuff in???

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks, but I'm not THAT into it. I just plan on doing the drain/fill/drive/drain/fill thing to get most of it changed.

2015 you shouldnt have that many miles on it. Look at your manual and see when it is time to service it. Also if you have a warranty your gonna void it doing it yourself. Just go to a transmission shop and have it done. Most likely they will tell you its not time to change it. Also they make it more Difficult for the car owner to work on it. If you noticed. There is no dipstick to check the fluid. That done for a reason. No leaks no problem. Thats how they want it. Keep the owner from doing the work.

I only have 4,000 miles on it, but I want to switch to synthetic fluid. The dealer won't do it because it's Valvoline, not GM fluid.
