I would just drain it all out and replace with new, it's quicker than changing your oil and just as easy.

Redline 75W-90NS is the stuff I use.

Yep, it's a torx screw on the bottom of the trans case. I know my 5 speed takes 3.8 quarts, not sure on the 02 5-speed though. Just fill it through the dipstick tube.

All 02+ WRX 5 speed transmissions should hold the same amount of fluid = 3.8 quarts. The torx bit needed to remove the transmission fluid drain bolt on newer models is a T-70. Look into the Andrewtech cocktail if you want a really good fluid. I also used Redline 75W-90 NS with good results. My car shifted like butter every time I put fresh fluid in the trans regardless of the type.

Subie Extra S fluid isn't synthetic... I recommend that over all others out there... Be it syn or dino

My 2¢
