    Re: transmission fluid refill....

    I dont know if the caddy trannys are any different than others i've filled up..but normally i just drain the fluid, drain the torque converter, put a nice rubber gasket on the pan, retorque the bolts, then refill with a flexy small ended funnell with tranny fluid

    Should be a plastic handle somewhere on the drivers side of the engine/transaxle , similar to the engine oil dip stick, that has "transmission" on it.
