No power tools. The case is aluminum and stripping the threads is very easy. Get a 3/8 ratchet ,extension, socket or maybe a speed handle and take your time. Take out almost all bolts working to a specific corner and slowly loosen last bolt or 2 and pan will tip forward draining fluid from pan. Start with 4 quarts car running in park . Shift through the gears a few times and re check fluid level.
