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?

Do you
have the same problem?

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
