AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID REPLACEMENT

1988 Ford Ranger

I have a 1988 ford ranger (6cyl, 2wd) and would like to drain and replace all the transimission fluid. The guy at the auto parts store told me I could drop the pan, start the car, put it in drive, and let the pump pump all the fluid out. I tried this but it doesn't seem to work that way. Any Ideas?

You will never get all the fluid out. Where is the auto parts place so I don't go there, trying to fry your transmission?

On most automatics you drop the pan, change the filter, put on a new gasket put back together, fill to the correct level when hot & in park using the right type of fluid and you should be ready to go : D
