it should tell you on your dipstick what kind it calls for, make sure you change the gasket and filter while your changing the fluid.

he won't need to change any gaskets or filters for a 5 speed flush and fill...if it's as easy as my GT was then just drain it from the drain plug...pop off the shifter and fill from the top after you've put the drain plug back in

yeah if its a 5 speed, but he didnt specify what type of trans it was. So better safe to throw that out there for an automatic trans

Since he was asking weight i can only assume 5 speed since an auto is just a fluid type. But yes if its an auto id spend the $15 on a filter and gasket kit
