You fill it until the fluid is about 1/2 inch below the fill hole. Do not overfill.

SOURCE: Toyota Prius 2008 - Transmission or or fluid?

Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.

SOURCE: 2007 Toyota 4 runner transmission filter and fluid change??

at 50,000 miles there is really no need. i would wait and save up that money and do a transmission flush 7- 10 quarts of toyota f-type fluid can be costly but a flush removes all of the fluid and garnish along with any fine shavings (normal wear and tear) out of the tranny and replaces it with new clean fluid. normal intervals would be at about 80-100,000 miles. you should be able to find preventative maintenance schedules in your owners manual. if not any repair facility would have it on their computer.

SOURCE: oil leak problem with 1996 toyota camry

I am going to see a mechanic - my trusted mechanic who does not nickel and dime me - to see what this is. I have the same problem and he told me he has never done this job on a Camry and is unsure. Given the miles, he has suggested that maybe it is time to part ways with the car. I am going to ask him if he will put some florescent dye in it and let me drive it for 50-100 mi and then check to see where the leak is and fix it. Let you know what happens. I have to try, the car is solid.

BAD TRANSMISSUION LEAK


Check the axle shaft seals where the two drive axles enter the transaxle. If leaking there the axle will have to be removed to replace the seal.
Look at the bottom pan of transaxle. If leaking from pan gasket, the pan will have to be removed and transmission drained to replace pan gasket.
There is a transaxle main shaft seal on the front of transaxle, hidden by the bellhousing that mounts to rear of engine.. If the shaft seal is leaking, fluid will be dripping from bottom of bellhousing, and when inspection cover is removed, fluid will be evident inside the bellhousing.
Check also the transmission fluid cooling lines, where the two lines exit the transaxle case, and go to front of car to an external cooler mounted in front of radiator, or going into a separate reservoir in the radiator.

Passenger side cv axle leaks transmission fluid. The axle has excessive play when moved up and down. Is problem inside transmission to allow the up and down play. No play in and out.


It will be part of the differential section. Usually easier, quicker and cheaper to source a second gearbox. Gearbox's are full of gears believe it or not, but also spring parts etc. They are not for the amateur to overhaul and often require specialised tools.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it


Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing

Just changed my cv joints and now transmission fluid leaks what do i need to do? and the passenger side sounds like its rattling


You may have cut or damaged the axle seals on the trans. Have to pull axles again and do seals,if that is where the leak is. Your best bet is to alway install rebuilt axle assys.

I had my inner and outer CV boot on the right replaced as it was torn. Could the mechanics have disrupted my transmission. Immediately afterwards my transmission fluid is all over my, and then my in-laws,...


the axle shaft seal might have been damaged upon dissambly or reassembly or the attaching clip might have not seated properly causing the axle to not seat properly in the transmission also the axle seal surface if it was a replacement shaft might not be large enough to seal properly.

Our 2001 Dodge Caravan seems to be leaking oil around drive shaft


Yes it's a bad seal and most likely the side bearing to the trans axle is bad too. Once the bearing has play, it vibrates and causes the oil to leak though the seal. Note: if one side went bad the other side is soon to follow since they have the same amount of miles on them. Might as well change both side. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep an eye on the transmission fluid level, don't want to burn out the transmission.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon Leaking Transmission Seal


The beaings job is to not only give the axle something to rotate on, but also the keep the axle centered in the hole. When the bearing gets loose, it allows the axle shaft to have an oblong roation, which wears on the seal and allows it to leak. You don't have to run the trans low on fluid to have the output bearings go bad. If you have gone enough miles to wear out a clutch, you have gone enough miles to get some play in the bearings.

Transmission leaking


R/S axle seal probably damaged . Most likely enough fluid was lost to cause slippage. Try filling and get repaired. Tow if necessary. Hope this help
