I plan on doing this when i install my new shifter. It is easiest to fill it right where the shifter attaches.

I think I am going to use Mobil 1 Synthetic ATF.

I forgot where I read it but i saw that synthetic makes it a little harder to shift when it's cold. Idk if it's true or not. Just sharing some info.

I use Mobile1 synthetic ATF in mine. It's pretty good once it warmed up. I've heard Texaco Havoline Mercon V is best for the TR3650's prior to 2005. I tried Royal Purple Synchromax and that made the tranny block gears often. Apparently the RP is bad for the TR3650 synchros. I'll have to agree with based on my experience. I know Wikipedia is wrong sometimes but pretty much everything I've heard about this tranny is right here...
