I am wondering how easy it is to do the trans service on the hemi, being that the exhaust hangs over the pan. What a PITA.
Hemi is easier IIRC, since the exhaust crossover is not in the way of the filter torx screw.

I just wanted to say great right up. Very informative. Doing my service this weekedn so this is a big help.....now the only question for you is have you changed your spark plugs and have a great right up on how to do those cause I am dreading to do them.....I have held off doing them when I should of. Now I got 60,000 on my ride and think its time.
I have a 4.7 so it's slightly different anyway, but I haven't done my plugs either. Need to do it but I need a special socket for the upper bank. I'm nearly at 70k miles and they were supposed to be changed at 50k IIRC. I'll probably do it around xmas time when I have some time off. The lower bank on the 4.7L is good to 100k miles.
