Had the 2000 on the lift and saw a fill plug on the side of the trans and also what looks like like a drain plug how do you fill it from that location? also whats the best fluid to use ie: smoother shifts, cooler temps thanks Dr C5~

I use Mobil 1 trans fluid in my 6-speed. It is just fine and I wanted the superior heat protection. Shifts seem a little smoother but then again after I did that I added a C6 shifter.

Draining is easier than filling for sure! You can get the bottle hose that screws on the end of the bottles, that makes it easier. I did not have one and winged it, carefully and slowly.

Most parts stores sell a small plastic pump that screws directly to the bottle with a short piece of hose attached. The popular synthetics will work well - Mobil 1, Royal Purple, Amsoil etc.

I use a "turkey baster" looks kinda like a grease gun with a hose attached, you suck the oil out of the can and push on the plunger to fill it; don't know what the proper name is for it but any major tool store or auto store ought to have one.
