    Changing the fluid for the first time and have some questions. I plan on just sucking it out with a turkey baseter.

    What type of fluid? Just Dexron III ATF right?

    Is there a filter I need to change? If so where is it?

    Will I need to bleed the system afterwards? If so what is the procedure?

    if its red fluid it would be ATF.. there could be a filter on the back side of the pump.. You could crack the lines to drain all the fluid. and the same method to get any air out of the lines..I have a solid method just a really detailed way of doing it .. I just don't have time to type it out this minute.. hope this helps..

    I know this is an incredibly old thread but rather than start a new thread I think this in an appropriate location for my question.

    I found a cracked hose this morning and will be replacing it. Once I've swapped out the line do I need to do anything else other than top off the fluid level? I would think I would have to bleed the system in some way. How would I go about doing that? Is there a bleed screw somewhere? I'm replacing the lift hose. Thanks in advance

    It should self bleed - just work the plow up and down a bit.
