If. U don't know the history of the car , and if it has high miles don't change it all , maybe use half old fluid and half new , but if its not burned and it shifts OK , don't touch it . unless u have changed since 30000 miles and every 30k your taking big risk on it not moving

If you have no idea what you are doing take it to a place that services transmissions and have the system flushed that cleans the filter and replaces the fluid . and you have no mess to clean up or dispose of the old fulid

There is a bolt to remove, it takes an allen wrench to remove it, 10MM. It is between the transmission and the frame on the drivers side. only bolt there with the allen head. Don't loose the aluminum washer that seals it. It takes about 8 quarts to refill it. There is a bolt on top near the firewall to refill. 17MM, again don't loose the washer.

Most toyotas have a drain plug screw in the transmission pan under the car. Remove the plug and drain old fluid into a waste oil bucket. It should be big enough to hold 3-4 lts. Clean and install the drain plug making sure the copper gasket is intact. Use a funnel and insert it in the transmission dipstick tube to refill. It should take aprox 3.5lt of fluid. If your fluid is really dirty you may want to start the vehicle and shift through the gears then repeat the process.

SOURCE: Transmission maintenance schedule

Usually a transmission service interval is every 30k miles. I would have it checked, or check it yourself, at 15k miles to see if it looks or smells burned (dark red in color with a pungent scent) to determine if it needs to be serviced before 30k miles.

SOURCE: Where do I put in the transmission fluid in a 96 Ford Taurus 3.0 6-cylinder?

Look for the red dip stick the yellow is always engine oil the red is the transmission don't mix them up . You can add transmission fluid down this tube. However if your haveing shifting problems look at the color of the existing oil and smell it . It shouldn't smell burnt and should be red in color if it is you may need to have the flushed and serviced to keep it from dieing on you . Its a lot cheaper them replaceing the trany

most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

My 92 toyota camry has power and all but it shifts hard wat could b the issue


Probably dirty transmission fluid and filter...you can use the ****** flush, or change the fluid and filter, or try the least costly...add one bottle of Lucas Oil transmission stabilizer fluid...(no not drain anthing) follow the instructions...warm motor, warm ****** etc. add the complete bottle...this works to restore the seals and shift points...All this of course assuming your motor is tuned and running smoothly...(clean air filter etc.) Hope this helps.

I am contemplating flushing and refilling the automatic transmission fluid and need to know the capacity. John


I would call the car dealer, he can tell you the amount and which transmission to use if you need to know.You might also ask him if there is a filter on the transmission, now would be a good time to change that. Most car manufactories recommend changing transmission fluid after a certain number of miles.

Transmission oil for toyota camry 1993


1993 Camrys take regular Dexron ATF. It should be changed every 30,000 miles. If you have never changed it, and it is over 100,000 miles, I would strongly suggest a professional "transmission-flush", with a designed specifically for flushing transmissions. To just drain the fluid at this point will leave roughly 3 quarts of dirty ATF in the system; a complete flush will eliminate ny dirty ATF traces.

Gear problem


Hi! chefcato36
I am just guessing but is this an automatic transmission? If the automatic transmission oil / coolent is old or low, the transmission will not work correctly. If the trany fluid is more then 5 years old the oil and filter need to be changed.
