Level with the fill hole counts as full - so if you've overfilled, allow fluid to come back out until it is reduced to the occasional drip, then replace the fill plug. My car is a 2007 Mazda 3s Touring with 2. Did not like either fluid. It would probably be possible to fill the transmission with a long run of hose and a funnel from the top side, but I like my little fluid pump. Ghetto for sure, but it worked. Use a funnel, and place it in the dipstick. But to each their own.

Used in all Rangers with all engines that year. Then I tried Motul Gear 300. I changed manual gear box at 94k miles. This requires a long small tipped funnel. This is a top shift fully synchronized transmission.
For automatic, it depends on engine size. Every 50,000miles or 80k is a good rule of thumb. My car is a 2006 Mazda3 Sport wagon. My car is a 2007 Mazda 3s Touring with 2. Time for another installment of Mazda3 maintenance! I'm assuming the 5-speed tranny is the same on all North American Mazda3's but correct me if I'm wrong.
Much better than stock or either Redline fluid. Four of these bottles will cover you. I'm reasonably happy with the shifts on my 3, but I notice some notchiness there at times.

I've had the dealer do the first couple of oil changes and could see from scuff marks from their lift, where I should put the jack stands.
