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.

the fill pluig is on the side of the transmission case, to access this you must jack the car up and crawl under it to see the plug

You can drain and fill your trans. It will take 2.5 -3.0 quarts of DEX III trans fluid....goes in the fill tube. Or you can get said transmission flushed which changes all fluid including torque converter.....about 15 quarts. Way more thorough.

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.

How do you check 2012 camry transmission fluid level


I have a 2012 Toyota Camry. The gearbox is a sealed until. Recently I have investigated about getting it serviced, Mine has just come out of warranty, Toyota dealer is asking $442.00 for service, after speaking with a number of transmission specialists they recommend 40,000 service intervals. Costing approximately $330.00 just ensure your transmission service technician is using the Toyota recommended oil which is "WS"
World standard and nothing different.

When do I change the transmission fluid ? 2008 Camry LE


The Camry's transmission fluid is meant to be changed every 50,000 miles. At least, that's what Toyota says; it is possible to go more than 50,000 miles between changes but I would advise against it. Your car is almost 2 years old, so unless you are driving over 25,000 miles a year you shouldn't be needing a transmission fluid change just yet.
