On my list of things to do. As the filters are accessed to on the bottom of the Ally, the fluid would drain out. A cleaner job would be to use the drain plug, do the filters and pump it back in. You figure the fluid is OK still? Here is another post on that. https://www.airforums.com/forums/f159/a ... 34551.html

No need to drain the fluid to change the Allison filters.

There are two round covers, held in place by 6 bolts each, which must be removed when replacing the 2 filters.
Removing them does not "drain" the fluid...However you will loose a quart or so when removing them.
