I want to replace all the old transmission fluid in our '04 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but I understand that pulling the transmission pan would only drain half the fluid (even though I could replace the filter when I pull the pan). A mechanic would be able to force all the old fluid out, flush the transmission, then put fresh fluid back in.
<br/> I really enjoy maintaining our cars, and would like to do this myself. Is there a way for me (a decent shade tree kinda mechanic and Navy engineman from the Reagan administration) to flush my own transmission? It looks like it would cost me ~ $125 to get this done at a shop, but that's big money right now, and I love doing my own work.
