Well I did the filter fluid this weekend using the kit from the website listed above. I put about 5 quarts back in.

1. I drained it first.
2. Pulled the filter off.
3. Installed new filter.
4. Filled with new oil until it came out of the fill hole.
5. Started car.
6. Shifted gears.
7. Let run for about 8 minutes.
8. Turned off added about another 1/2 to 1 quart (about 4.5 to 5 total) until it came out of fill hole again.
9. Put plug back in.
10. Done.

I am just nervous that I didn't fill it enough, but couldn't really get more fluid in if its coming out the fill hole after running the engine and shifting through the gears. I do have one quart left over out of the 6.
