Yes, it's in the '95-99's also. The trans is a dry-sump design. So the fluid is not in the pan. According to the manual, it will take 11 quarts once the sump is drained. Hopefully that's not the case. I bought 8 quarts on the advice of others here who did the same fluid change.
If you're having trouble finding the pipe plug mentioned by Aurora40, it's right next to the cock's comb detent behind the front(left) suction screen. Takes a 7/16 socket, NOT 11 mm and you might have to loosen the valve body bolt (10 mm) holding the harness tab. Got nearly another 2 quarts out by pulling the plug.
EXACTLY 8 quarts to refill put it right in the middle of the operating range semi-hot.

The 2 lower filters are more like screens, just to catch the big stuff. The actual main pump filter is in the side cover, it is the one that catches all the small stuff, it is the one that really needs changed.
I hope this is posted in the correct area. My son purchased a 2002 aurora v8 about 2 weeks ago. We tried to check the trans fluid yesterday. With the car sitting for about an hour we started it, made sure it was in park and removed the did stick. As soon as the stick was pulled out, fluid poured out of the dipstick hole. I know that the engine should be operating temp but when we pulled the stick out with engine off we saw only the bottom of the empty tank.? My first question is... should you be able to see fluid in the tank when the engine is not running. Second.... what would cause the fluid to pour out of the dipstick hole when the engine is running. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Terry
The 4t80e is a dry sump trans what you saw with the engine off is normal. As for coming out of the dipstick recess with the engine running then I would say it is over filled. There is a very specific process to check the fluid level. Get up to normal operating temp. Find a level surface. Put trans in park. Cycle through each gear stopping at each one briefly. Then back to park and let idle for a few minutes. Pull dipstick to check. Top off if needed.
