Hey Eric==Pull the trans pan and filter then replace the filter and pan and about 4 quarts of fluid. GoodluckJoe

In the owners manual, it states that you do not need to change the automatic transaxle fluid. But you should check it. Unfortunally, you'll need to raise the car, and then drain it to see if you have the correct amount, and if it needs to be changed. There is no dipstick, and this is the only way to check the fluids levels.

the first answer is is the best but if you pull the pan its actually 6.9 quarts to refill
