Re: how do you add transmission fluid on a 99 olds
Right below the middle of the exhaust crossover pipe in the top of the trans is a black or red screw in cap with no dipstick thats the fill. to check is a plug right above the right axle (7/16 wrench) you need to remove with engine running and fill till fluid runs out on level ground then put both plugs back in and your done

The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug 2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts) 3. Reinstall drain plug. 4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart 5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer. 6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park. 7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick. 8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to, but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.
As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.
The front differential is the transmission.This is checked when the engine is at normal operating temperature with the vehicle running in park.Remove the dip stick and add til it gets to the full hot mark.This takes Dextron 3 automatic trans.fluid.
The oil dipstick is on the driver's side of the engine. Look a little low. There is no transmission dipstick. There is a plug on the transmission pan that has to be removed while the engine is running to check the fluid level. A special tool is needed to add fluid to the transmission.
there are two areas where you can add fluid from the front of the vehicle, doesnt matter what kind of car it is, one is for checking the oil the other is for the transmission fluid, but before you add transmission fluid i recommend your flush out the old transmission fluid first so all the grimey old fluid is out and at the same time can notice if any bits of metal are floating around
Unfortunate all that is available for transmissions for the 1995 and 1996 aurora are the 1995 and 1996 year! The transmissions fron any other year are not compatible or interchangable on the 95-96 years!
