That's what I thought, which is why I posted the alternate view.
What constitutes a "fluid change"?

- drain it like engine oil (remove a drain plug, let drain, refill)?
- drop the pan, replace the filter, and refill?
- hook it up to a machine the pumps new fluid in, suck old fluid out?
- option "none of the above"?
