You are not going to be able to get all the fluid out by just draining the pan. The torque converter holds lots of fluid. So drain the pan and measure the amount of fluid that is removed and put the same amount back in. Another way is to disconnect the return line from the cooler and turn the engine over to pump the fluid out. Pump out 1 quart and then pour in 1 quart. Do this until the fluid is clean. My advice is to pay someone to do a complete fluid drain and fill. They have the equipment to do what it is hard for you to do at home. You will save yourself lots of dirty work at a very reasonable cost.

Im changing the transmission screen. How much fluid will i need?

Fluid capacity is stated on your owners manual. Or go online type on browser transmission fluid capacity of “make, model, year of your car”. If you drained the transmission fluid there would still be fluid left on the torque converter so for example the fluid capacity is 10 quarts there would be about 3 qrts left on the converter so all you need is 7 qrts. Of fluid.

I have a Honda CRV - The drive light blinks when the weather gets warm

Hi, the light indicates that something may not be right with the transmission which could be something as simple as a malfunction in a sensor.

Have you checked the fluid? Have you ever changed it? Did you use only Honda recommended fluid? It may simply need to be topped off. Is there any indication of a leak? Is the fluid red or brown? If it isn't red then change it. Drain and refill it at least twice or up to four times for a thorough change. Less than half of the old fluid drains out with each change so it is necessary to drain an refill a number of times to get out most of the old fluid. After doing this check the fluid after using the vehicle for a day or two to see if it needs topping off.

Take it to a place like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts and have them put a code reader on it if changing the fluid or topping it off does not solve the problem. If you have a leak get it fixed.

Use only Honda recommended fluid available at the dealer or at Carquest Auto Parts stores

Looking for the dip stick to check transmission fluid on a 2004 manual nissan altima... do I have to take it to a dealer or can I take it to get an oil change and they refill it there?

There probably isnt a dipstick if it is a manual transmission. If you need to have the trans fluid replaced you can take it to the dealer or local shop.

I am contemplating flushing and refilling the automatic transmission fluid and need to know the capacity. John

I would call the car dealer, he can tell you the amount and which transmission to use if you need to know.You might also ask him if there is a filter on the transmission, now would be a good time to change that. Most car manufactories recommend changing transmission fluid after a certain number of miles.
