Transmission filter 2005 Mercury Montego V6 3.0L FWD

2005 Mercury Montego

First I am not sure, if its a CVT or traditional automatic transmission ? I am pretty much suspecting its the traditional one. It has tiny yellow plastic dipstick between transmission & radiator, more easily accessible from underneath the car.
Second, any guide on dropping the pan & replacing/servicing the transmission filter. I see its not horizontal, it vertically lying between transmission & radiator.

It is a CVT – Continuously Variable Transmission. Here is the procedure for replacing the transmission fluid and filter.

  1. Yeah that was right, I ended up just draining & refilling the transmission fluid. I must had got 99% of the dirty fluid out, as I used the air hose at one end of oil cooler line to blow all the fluid out of drain plug.
