I have a 208 mustang ecoboost convertible. I am wondering:

1) How often and how do I change the fuel filter?

2) What tools and how do I change the automatic transmission fluid?

I know I need a pump for the transmission fluid but I am not sure which one, any help is appreciated!

Good evening,

1. Once a year

2. Lift the car, use a big drain pan. remove all the bolts around the pan. I believe they are 10mm bolts.

3. No pump needed. just a funnel and six quarts of fluid.

That is for removing the fluid from the pan. Not needed.

When you remove the bolts, tilt the pan toward the drain pan to remove the fluid.

Use a funnel to install the fluid.

I am sorry. This transmission gets filled from under the car at the fill plug.

There are two transmissions and the one for yours shows this. I attached a picture for you to view.

The pump you showed earlier looks like a good tool to use to add the fluid. Just be sure you do not overfill the fluid level.
