Shift solonoid e e is for external it the one on top of trans two screws and a plug on top it not on top Marc is correct I think I looked up camry and not solara thank you

First, check your information on the location of the shift solenoid in the Camry Solara. It is like most cars on the road. The shift solenoid is located under the drain pan cover on the valve body wall (the valve body faces the drain pan cover. To access it, you will have to do this:

  • Wait until the transmission is cool and the fluid has settled
  • Drain the transmission fluid (depending on brand automatics have up to 9.5 quarters of automatic transmission fluid in them so you can see the necessity of draining it first. Instead of having a rush of tranny fluid gushing out at you, you are only facing about one quart)
  • Place a bucket under the transmission drain pan cover
  • Loosen the 14 bolts along the cover flange
  • Gently place the transmission pan cover into the bucket
  • Let the quart or so that is left in the transmission drain out
  • Look at the valve body, just revealed by the removal of the fluid and cover
  • Locate the solenoid on the upper right of the valve body
  • Replace the right-hand one first

Is there a drain bolt for the ATF on a 2004 toyoya solara

most toyotas do have a drain bolt on transmission pan for draining the fluid, i would make sure you are draining at the correct time, this depends on what type of oil it uses. i think it is the TIV. call dealer and make sure ,the drain and refill holds 3.7 qts.

I can tell you this, i do not like the drain and refill , you are only draining 3.7 qts, then you add new oil to mix with the rest of the dirty oil in transmission,
The best way is to flush system using a BG flush machine or compatible machine, this way 100% of the oil is removed and replaced with new.

I have an leak comming down by the oil pan above the oil drain is on my 2000 toyota sloara I had the valvue cover gaskets replaced and im wondering if they didn't do the job right or could it be something...

Oil leak may be the oil pan gasket. you can purchase a dye at Autozone specifically made for determining where leaks are comming from . Or take the vehicle to an ASE certified repair shop. There Technicians will tell you where the leak is from.
With regards to the shift solenoid take it to an ASE Transmission repair shop have them do the repair. This is not a biggie but could turn out to be if you let it go.

Location of oil drain plug toyota solara 6 cylinder - all I see at the bottom of the engine/transmission is the drain for the transmission.

- There is no drain plug on the transmission. You will need to remove all bolts from trans oil pan.

SAFETY: Use Proper protective equipment. Jack stands, eye protection etc.

We like to use a garbage can lid with a small drain hole in it as a funnel, As it is larger than the pan and oil will seem like its coming from all directions. so try to let the pan fall from one side.

There is a magnet in the bottom of the pan, remove clean and replace.

This is a great time to also re-torque the valve body bolts. You will need a tech-manual for this.

Install new gasket. torque all bolts. Add fluid approx 4 quarts of the correct fluid and restart vehicle check fluid level often and check for leaks.

Ensure you properly dispose of the waste transmission fluid at your local hazmat center.

Hope this tip helps.

Are you sure its the oil pan most leaks come from the valve cover gaskets up above. check the corners of the valve covers. If the pan needs re-sealed you will have to remove the flex pipe.

Location of oil filter on 2007 Toyota Solara Convertible

The 3.3 no longer has a "spin-on" filter. The filter is now a "cartridge-type", and is housed in a cricular aluminum housing under the engine.

Oil and filter changing for 08 sienna. How complicated is it?

You still have to drain the engine oil from the drain plug in the oil pan, and I recommend replacing the drain plug gasket.
If you buy a filter from Toyota, it actually comes with instructions on exactly what to do. There is a 3/8" recess in the bottom of the filter housing, when you put a 3/8" extension and a ratchet in this and remove it, there should be a plastic piece that comes with the filter to pop into the bottom of the housing and drain the oil. replace the o-ring and reinstall the housing drain plug.

You can get a filter-cup tool from Pep Boys or local auto parts tools sections that will fit the filter housing. Use the cup with a ratchet and extension to remove the filter housing. replace the filter cartridge and the o-ring. Make sure to lubricate o-ring, they will snag! Reinstall and add 6.4 qts of oil
