jack up the car and remove the lower 3/8 drive drainplug(on the ps side) to drain the fluid .on the same side is the 3/8 drive fillplug ,use a fluid pump to put the fluid back in the trans and in a pinch if you dont have a pump put your car on 4 jack stands and make sure its level.remove the fill plug and the shifter.fill the trans through the shifter until it comes through the fill plug.then reinstall the fill plug and shifter.T-5s take 2 quarts or so of ATF.I highly recommend Synchromax by royal purple for fluid.

You can also fill it using a quart sized squeeze bottle and a piece of 3/8" hose.

If your T-5 is whining between shifts, it is too late to ddo a fluid change. It will be dead very soon.

I know this from last weekends experience...whining started on Friday night, by Saturday the synchros between 2nd and 3rd and 3rd to 4th were chrunching.

C4 here I come.
