Trans flush ?'s

From what I have read it seems that unless your TC has a drain plug on it, its a better idea to go someplace and have them do a flush. Is there any way to know if the TC will have a drain plug, by year or VIN. Just double checking the 4R100 is supposed ot have DextronIII/Mercon only? (or comparable synthetic)
Also what kind of fluid should I put in the rears? capacity? Is there a gasket or anything I would need to replace when I take them apart?
Thanks

There is a procedure to change the fluid in the TQ converter with out a drain plug. You can do a search or some one will be along to answer, I am not sure where I read it. Also you can use mercron v in the 1998 and newer trans up to I think 07 or 08

I have a writeup in my webshots. I don't know how far away you are but if you're not comfortable doing it yourself you can bring her down and we'll get her squared away.

TransmissionService pictures from trucks photos on webshots

This is a writeup that my camera Effed u on... so if you want to come by, so we can do a video writeup that'd be great.

You'll need a few basic tools, the pan has a reuseable gasket, the NEW mercon V is supposed to be 4r100 compatible however I don't want to trust that so when I did my fluid change I found some good ole mercon/dextron III.

You can find out if the TQ Drain plug is present by removing the inspection plate and then reaching up and all around hte TC. You'll see a pic of one in my webshots.

Any other questions let me know.
