I would start off with about 4 quarts. This is a warm vehicle check , so have the vehicle running. Put in first quart let it set for a few minutes, then check your fluid. do this process again with the next quart until you are in the full range. You only loose about 25% of the fluid through the plug or pan removale.

Difficult to determine. Add one quart at a time and check each time.

2001 Mercury Grand Marquis the transmission torque converter doesn't have a drain plug. I want to drill a hole for a drain plug. Is there a perfect place to drill the hole ?


If it was me Id just get as much out as you can and go from there,not a hole lot in torque con. and you might be getting into something you don't want to,draining the trans will be enough to get your fluid back into good quality and changing filter,and with every trans change I put a pint of lucas with the change! good stuff!

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?


GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

Do you have to drain torqe converter when doing tranny service how muchh fluid goes in with or without draining torqe converter


Torque Converters haven't been drained since
the 1960's & not many even then, had a plug

Remove the trans pan,clean,replace, your done

Never have a trans flushed unless you want problems

Your transaxle can not take much fluid
Don't know how much, but you could ask
a trans shop,a dealer or just buy 4 to 6 qts

All automatic transmissions get changed EVERY
30,000 miles or they will not make 100,000

Power Steering gets flushed at same time or
kiss the rack goodby

How do you change the transmission fluid in a 2006 Hyundai Elantra? What kind of transmission fluid and how many quarts?


A Service Department as a Hyundai Service Department typically uses a "Fluid Exchange" machine (approx. 7 quarts of Hyundai SPIII fluid) to do a flush. There is a drain plug at the bottom of the transmission (24 mm bolt) to drain it. However, this method is not entirely/completely effective. This drain plug only empties the pan, not the torque converter -- so you're only replacing about 3 to 4 quarts with this method (torque converter does not drain). So, once you've replaced the 3 to 4 quarts this way, there's still contaminated fluid in the torque converter which will circulate back into the rest of the transmission. RECOMMENDATION: Have a certified technician do a flush (fluid exchange).

Was driving down the road and car just like it went into nuetral and will not move. so what could be wrong with the transmission?


The first thing to check is the fluid. If you have a dipstick, start there. If it needs fluid, get the right stuff, there are about 15 different kinds staring you in the face, you have no idea which one it is, your owner's manual will tell you. If it is full, you have a problem. If it doesn't have a stick, you have 2 plugs on the side of the tranny, one for level, one for filling. Pull the bottom plug out, if fluid seeps out it is full, if not, pull the top plug and fill it up till it seeps out, then plug it back up, bottom first. Now, when tranny's go bad, or get hot, or something happens, they go into a safe mode to prevent further damage, yours might be in safe mode, usually you can get home, slowly, I would suspect the torque converter or the drive shaft broke. Check it out, hope this helps.
