Question type: General

I have a 91 3.8 Tbird, I put the wrong auto transmission fluid , I understand there is no plug like for the oil pan, do I have to suck it out thru the dip-stick hole to replace it with the right one. almost 3ltrs. if I'm right, and what is the right fluid called, exactly.
thank you

Thank you, helps alot but too much work for a vehicle I only need a few more month, maybe I'll just drop the pan to get out what I can, or just try to suck out what I can thru the fill hole, top it up with the right fluid, Dex2 and hope it reduces the slipping enough to make it more drivable... thanx again
