  1. To change your car's transmission fluid on your own, you need a transmission filter service kit, which includes a filter and a pan gasket. You also need a catch pan and 3 to 6 quarts or liters of automatic transmission fluid (ATF). Since each car uses a different type of ATF, make sure to consult the owner's manual to verify that you have the correct one for your car's make, model and year. In addition, you need various tools such as a car jack, a funnel, screwdrivers, wrenches, containers and rags to wipe away the mess.
