    Super simple DIY. This guy isn't the most exciting mechanic to watch but he get's the job done. I didn't use any of the products he used/showed. Drained old fluid into an oil pan, filled with a hand pump till it ran out the fill hole. I had the car jacked up, after the fluid came out the top hole, I lowered it so level and let any excess fluid drain into pan then jacked it back up to reinstall fill hole bolt.

    Capicity says 2 qts but it took just over 2 qts till it started to flow out of the hole, so I got 3 qts-
