A steady hand, a good aim and a funnel will be needed. You pour it down the dipstick tube

So thats how its done? On the driver side, the engine oil dipstick? That sounds crazy. And how much fluid does it take? Thanks

No there is another dip stick that's farther back in the engine bay.......I would suggest you take it somewhere though

It would be a good idea to buy some sort of shop manual. I use the Haynes manuals that can be purchased at Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, and many other places.

No, you pour it down the dipstick tube that you use to check the transmission fluid. If you pour it down the oil dipstick tube, it will go into the oilpan, you want it in the trans, do it down the trans dipstick tube.

I hope you don't put the engine oil in through the dipstick tube either, that would take for ever!
