Transmission Fluid Change Procedure

Might someone have a transmission fluid change procedure they could point me to? I think I have seen one before but did not print it or bookmark it.

Thanks in advance.....

What I do is remove the return line at the front of the truck right at the cooler, and will pump 1 gallon out, then replace it. I do this until I've changed 3 gallons, I do this every 15,000 miles and then at 30,000 miles I will change out 5 gallons which will completely change all the fluid. Then when I hit 60,000 miles drop the pain and flush the tranny.

Drain pan. Drain converter. Refill. Done. True, it doesn't get *all* of the fluid out, but you'll get most (14 quarts or so I think, don't remember exactly).

Yes somewhere around there they stopped offering service plugs on the converter. I drained the pain, refilled it, disconnected the cooler return line and pumped out a gallon, added a fresh gallon..etc etc until I went through 20 quarts. Seems to get the job done, I do it around every 30k (almost annual)
