If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter it will probably take aprox. 4 maybe 5 quarts. I would add 4 and check it befor adding more . Just dont actually put it into gear until you know the fluid level is correct. Make sure to give the fluid enough time to get out of the dipstick tube so you get a accurate reading

I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and I accidently put motor oil in the A/T oil spot. What should I do?


Don't run the engine at all. If it was started, the transmission pump will have pumped the motor oil all through the transmission-go have it professionally flushed. If the engine was not started, drop the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and get a new transmission filter. Put it back together and run the engine until the transmission fluid gets hot. Then change the fluid and filter again. After this, monitor the transmission fluid dipstick. If any traces of more motor oil in the pink fluid, do the drain and change filter a third time. (buy a case of transmission fluid-each drain and change will take about 6 quarts.)

Transmission slipping in 95 blazer


You could try a transm. drain and refill and replace the fluid filter while doing so. When you drop the transmission pan (after draining), check for how much metal shavings are in the pan. There should be a magnet on the pan to collect shavings. If it doesn't look like too much, you could proceed with the filter change, then replace gasket for pan and put pan back on, and refill transm. and try it. Sometimes a fluid and filter helps, sometimes not if damage is too severe.

How do i change the transmission filter


The filter will be mounted inside the transmission fluid pan.
You should have a filter and gasket kit available, and new fluid. You have to drain the fluid to be able to change the filter.

Once you are under the vehicle and can see the pan, it is rather self explanatory but messy.

How do u tell how much transmission fluid goes into the 2000 saturn sl2


It depends on which tranny you have. You either have an MP6, an MP7 or a 4T40E.

The MP6 and MP7 were used on the 1.9L engine.
The 4T40E was used on the 2.2L and the 3.0L

If it's being drained and refilled, the MP6/MP7 holds 4.2 quarts.
The 4T40E holds 7 quarts.

If it's been rebuilt and it's COMPLETELY empty (including torque converter) they hold:
MP6/MP7 = 7.4 quarts
4T40E = 12.9 quarts

If you're just trying to check the level and don't know how much to add, the procedure is to remove the drail plug. The fluid should be level with the bottom of the plug. If no fluid drips out, add fluid until it starts to slowly run out of the drain hole, the tightent the drain hole plug before any more runs out. The fluid will now be at the bottom of the drain hole plug. Keep in mind, this must be done when the transmission is up to at least 104 degrees. Things under there are HOT, so be careful.
