Yes. Get a long skinny funnel. Did you drain the converter as well as the trans?

Yep thats with the converter drain, put in about 2/3's of the fluid then start the engine and add the rest to the full mark, run it around the block and recheck the level with it running in park. It really adds life to your tranny if you put on a good tranny cooler, bypass the one in the radiator.


oh crap. def didnt drain the torque converter. luckily i only put 1 gallon of transmission fluid because i wasnt sure

my 95 Ford Bronco xlt 5.8l jumps at first when you first take off and when you are accelerating into the rpm's, after that it's fine. I've changed the spark plugs and wires and that helped out tremendously. I was just wondering if by doing a fluid and filter change on the tranny would make a difference too.
