Has any of my fellow cadillackians done there own Transmission fluid/filter exchange?

If so how much fluid do you have to put in the pan before re-closing it?

Thanx in advance

the transmission is a "fill untill" there is a fitting on theside you remove, then fill.. untill it overfills. I belive it is around 8 quarts.. I belive you have to run the car.. its kinda a pain.. you have to have the special type seringe to fill the tranny. there was a recent post on here about it.. look through the posts..

I just used a siphon pump / hand held pump with the passenger side of the car jacked up a little where I could hold my hand to the hose going into pan bolt opening. I then refilled it with fluid until it started to come out slowly.

i replaced mine after I bought the car with 121K and I didnt have any issues. But it was clear it had been serviced before.
