When you remove the pan (cover) to reveal the filter that you need to replace, you will release the fluid.

1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.

1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.

9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.

Where do I find the transmission fluid drain plug and filter to replace on 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe?


Some vehicles had filters and some didn't. If you have a filter it will be inside the transmission pan, and in that case there won't be a drain plug. You just take the pan off and try to get as little on you as possible when all the fluid comes out. MUCH easier if you have a lift.

If you don't have a pan then the drain plug is on the bottom. Manual transmissions don't have a pan, but sometimes the automatics didn't either.

Fluid: Hyundai Manual Transmission fluid if it's a 5 speed, and Hyundai ATF or Mitsubishi Triple Diamond ATF only if it's an automatic. Dexron and generic ATF does not fair well in these transmissions.

Call a dealership parts department with the VIN number and see if there is a filter kit available for your vehicle if it has an automatic transmission.

Where do you check transmission fluid 1995 pontiac firebird manual transmission 3.4 liter


Actually, on the manual tranny its more like a thin grease. There is a plug located on the side of the transmission, When you remove the plug, you should be able to stick your pinky in the hole and get a little grease on your finger. The fill line is to the bottom of the plug.
