Yes, that and the oil of course. Just to be 100% clear on this, i'll explain every step in am automatic transmission service. First, drain the oil from the transmission by removing the drain plug. Second, remove the oil pan from the tranny. Then comes the removal of the filter. Then, replace the filter with the new one. Then clean the oil pan of excess dirt and gasket residue if any, and put the new gasket on the pan. Then you just put the oil pan back on the tranny and top off the oil. For the exact amount of oil needed, call your local dealer, or local garage or parts store. Then just verify the oil level just to be sure everything is OK, and note that most transmissions require the engine to be hot to have the correct level on the oil gauge. It should say if it is needed in your owners manual, or on most oil gauges it says ajust when hot, or hot level and cold level. If in doubt, ask the local dealer, garage or parts store again.

    Oil filter location is inside the pan of the automatic transmission, you need to drain the transmission and take off the oil pan on the bottom of the transmission to access the filter. As for the oil type, many vehicles are different, could be ATF+3, dexron, mercon, etc. Best bet is to check owner's manual or ask your local dealer, friendly mechanic, or car parts store, they will have listing to help you out.

I have changed to filter and gasket on my transmission and now trying to find where i can fill it back up. There is no drain plug and dipstick plug


sounds like a sealed system and the method of filling requires the oil to be pumped in and the amount registered to know when it is full
This done by the service center or professional auto transmission shops

I'm not sure on your specific model, but most automatic transmissions do not have a drain plug. You need to remove the entire bottom pan to drain the fluid.

Best method is to loosen/remove all bolts except two corner bolts, then when the pan comes loose the fluid will run from one side -- hopefully from one corner. It's always a little messy, even for experienced mechanics. Have a new gasket ready and a filter kit (you need to remove the pan to get to the filter).

Can not find my transmission filter on my 2002


I don't believe you have one. You just need to get the trans flushed.

Transmission kicks shifting to second gear


This is a known issue with certain '03 and '04 MPV transmissions; my 2003 had the same problem. There is a Mazda technical service bulletin about this - 05-003/004 (Shift Shock). You need to take the van to a qualified shop and have them flash the transmission control module (TCM) with new firmware.

I had this done. It did not completely fix the problem but it did reduce its occurrence.
