I am planning on changing my trans fluid and pan. I have a 2007.5 6.7L with the 68RFE trans. My questions are, is there a thread on "How to" do this and is there a drain plug or hose to drain the remaining fluid once the pan is removed? Thanks for any info.:S:

Oil is only about 8,000 miles old. Had a mechanic flush it in Sept. and put the factory pan back on. I've had a small drip ever since and decided if the pan was going to come off, i would go ahead and put the MagHytec pan on with Amsoil Universal ATF. Just didn't know if I could drain this at home with basic tools and limited know-how.

But how do you get the remaining fluid out once the pan has been dropped? Its my understanding that the pan fluids is only about 1/3 of the total that is in the transmission system.

I noticed an article in Diesel World this month with a guy using Amsoil Universal in his 68rfe trans. I then emailed Amsoil today and got their reply that the Universal is suitable for the 68rfe. It is also posted on their website now as well.

You are exactly right or I would have done it in Sept.
