You fill it through the dipstick tube with a funnel.

    If it is low, it should only be a quart or so. You will only want to add about 1/2 of a quart at a time and then check the level.

    You can overfill this and it is hard to take fluid back out.

    Fluid should be checked with engine running.

    You may want to buy the haynes manual for your vehicle.

    It will provide a lot of information and is under $20.00.

    It also has most of your vehicle's specifications listed.

    I think that I have one for every vehicle that I own. They usually pay for themselves several times over just in saved time.

Ok your dipstick for your transmission is also where you fill it, get a funnel with a small base and put that in the hole where you pulled the dipstick out of. then add your transmission fluid. my 1986 toyota pickup 2wd holds 3 quarts of oil at a time. i hope this helps

How do I check the transmission fluid and add transmission fluid to my 1991 toyota camry

Do you have your owners' manual? Check the diagram there to see where the dipstick for the tranny fluid is. You generally have to check the fluid when the engine is hot. You can sometimes get help withe these things at the big box auto stores like Advance Auto. I hope this helps! Ask them to show you how to add the fluid. You could also go to the oil change place and get them to show you that any other crucial check points on your auto.

My 1986 toyota cressida leaks transmistion fluid out bottom of car where drive line connects to transmisson the transmission is fine how do i fix it

Based on your description I am going to assume your leak is @ the rear of the transmission. If so, the leak would most likely be from the transmission output seal. To fix, you will have to remove the drive-shaft by unbolting it from the rear axle and sliding it rearward out of the transmission. Once the shaft is out of the way, you will need to remove the seal by inserting a pry bar or large screwdriver between the transmission output shaft and the seal lip and pop it out. Sometimes you may have to partially collapse the steel shell inward towards the center with a small chisel and hammer to releive the press fit. Drive the new seal into the bore and reinstall the driveshaft. Check fluid, road test and check for leaks after the road test.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1986 mercury lynx 2 door ??

The car would need to be level and the engine warm, set the parking brake and leave the engine running. If you look at the owners manual it may have you put it in neutral to check the level. If it needs fluid you add it by using a funnel and add directly down the tip stick pipe.

Fuel filter location for 1983 Cressida

Hello George. Just saw this post and thought I'd answer even though you probably already solved it. I had an 83 with manual tranny--loved that car. I replace the filter twice. It is right under the driver's side floorboard tucked up tight next to the outer frame rail as it inclines up toward the firewall. Hard to work on. David
