Use a Wix or AC Delco transmission filter.

Look at Rock Auto or NAPA…

Fluid needs to be Dexron III, not Dexron VI….

Around 3.5 quarts will be needed….

it is hard to drain all the fluid as some of it stays in the valve body and torque converter. The rule of thumb is to measure what you remove and only put that amount back. My car has 526,000 on it and I have done many many fluid changes and always follow that method. Our Jeep Cherokee is the same. Just remember to use Dexron 3 and nothing else. Napa still sells it.
