Its the only one on the trans that faces directly down. Look toward the back near the driveshaft, and you'll be confident when you see it. It will probably be tight, as the factory uses loktite on it. If it still flips you out snap a pic and upload it and we'll verify you have the right one

Hm ok.

Good. I have a T45 so I figured they were the same.

fluid amount

Agent Orange is correct.
3.2 quarts is the recommended amount to reduce the nibble felt when shifting into 3rd gear (it doesn't help) but a trick that has been posted all over the web a few years back was to use 3 quarts of fluid and .2 quarts of Lucas synthetic trans fluid.

When it comes to fluid, I personally have used
1)Red Line ATF D4,
2)B&M trick shift,
3)Royal Purple Synchromax and finally
4)GM Synchromesh.

And yes you read that right, GM Synchromesh. Now for me, the 2 best used were the GM followed by the Royal Purple.

I don't have anything bad to say about the others just that it didn't cure my nibble feel when shifting from 2nd to 3rd

Your best bet would be to call Tremec at 1-800-401-9866 to get their opinion. i can tell you now that they will tell you to use Mercon III and their website will say Mobil1 ATF.
the only problem is that most synthetics are to slippery for use in todays manual transmissions.

Good Luck.

The small socket in the center's not a fill hole. Just fill into that case and it will drain down. That hole in the center is what connects to the shifter and controls the trans.

No. If you look at your shifter it has a pivot ball that fits in there. It'll just move whatever fluid filled it up when you reinstall the shifter

Awesome Im done!!!! I've never even changed the oil of a vehicle before and thanks to you guys here at ME I just successfully changed my tranny fluid!!! So back to original point of this thread...the change did fix my very very notchy/Grindy 1-2 gear change and 2-3 that is common for the t3650, but the weird vibration/rubbing noise in 5th gear is still there...idk what it could be, it drives perfectly fine the noise just gets to me, I'm hoping its something simple like the rubber boot or something is rubbing along the shifter in 5th gear or something......also I couldn't find penzoil syncromesh so I went with about 3.2 quarts of Mobil 1 synthetic ATF, I'm reading some people swear by it and its what tremec recommends, but than I've read people say do not use Mobil 1 atf synthetic. Am I alright with it?

Very glad to hear you completed your first shot at working on your car. As for the fluid, if you called Tremec right now, they'd recommend that exact stuff. You'll be fine

Must say its a great feeling and satisfaction of working on my own vehicle, much more to come, oil change the next few days, than a coolant flush possibly if needed. I wanna tackle the basic maintenance before anything, eventually I'd love to really know my way around my engine and tackle repairs without the costly labor rates around here

The feeling only gets better the more you do! And it's one of the best feelings! Glad to hear you're getting closer and more familiar with your car.

There is only one issue with working on your car; the more comfortable you get working on it, the harder it is to stop buying parts!

Good Job

Now that you have been bitten by the DIY bug, be careful. It will consume you. Trust Me. I am in the final stage of my 5.4 swap (and my wife is pissed). But wow is it fun.
