How do you change the fluid and filter in a 2002? What transmission is in this car? Does it even have a filter? Do they still put a plug in the torque converter? Is there any problem switching over to synthetic?
Thanks,

The filter in those transmissions is pretty far in to the case, it's not something that you would change with a normal service, just do a drain and refill with about 4 quarts of fluid. You could do the drain and refill twice if the car is high mileage and the service has not been done for a while. If it's a high miler, it might be best to stick with convential fluid.
