I'm running into some trouble here and I could use some help. I've tried taking the filling plug off first but for some damn reason it's just not coming off! The car is 8 years old and has been garaged its whole life, it only has 38,000 miles. This i the first time it's ever going to get changed. I've even tried using a breaker bar and it's just not coming off. Can anyone suggest an alternative way to getting this thing off?

The transmission is the TR3650 off the 2006 Mustang GT

- Good thing I went for the fill plug first because if i drained it and couldn't get the fill plug off I would've been screwed

The plugs have treadlock on them, so it will be tough to break the torque, but it should not be that hard. You should be using a 3/8" breaker bar to break the torque, then just a ratchet.

Here are the instructions on servicing: http://iihs.net/fsm/?dir=289&viewfil...%20Filling.pdf

Just switched fluid a few days ago. I put rp ATF instead of Synchromax. Feels smother compared to the stock motor craft. First tyranny fluid change at about 32k. I used a pump my dad had in his tool box. Worked really well a few Pumps on each bottle and it was done. I'll snap a picture of it sometime. He helped which made it easier. Also used a lift to do it. Good tread lots of info here.

Did you take out the driveshaft in order to gain access to the fill plug? The picture shows what looks to me like the tailshaft yoke bolt up plate...?

I did not have to remove my driveshaft when doing my 07gt. I used a pump, to pump the oil in. That's what some use or some run a hose up through the shifter into the cab. I used one like this. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0043YIFGU?cache=779525f80eaa1abcb9a3114b3444b3dd& pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1408706336&sr=1-2#ref=mp_s_a_1_2
