Adding the fluid back can be challenging the 1st time, but after that you will learn easier ways. The pan/filter, seals, & fluid will be around 300.00 for the parts. A shop will probably charge between 550.00 to 800.00.

Thanks HerbP. Is there a way to measure how much transmission fluid there currently is in the vehicle ? Can it be checked with ISTA? Thank you
