From that Oil Gauge after draining your old Oil ...Put Back Your Bolt ..Then Find a little Funnel to put our new Oil throw that Oil Gauge..

I have a 2008 Tacoma Prerunner automatic. I am getting a shimmy at 30-35 mph. I believe it is a transmission issue. Could that be because it is low on transmission fluid?


How would the transmission be low on fluid ?

It's up to you to check for leaks & the fluid level

If you think it is slipping, you may as well
pull the trans & have it rebuilt

Don't change the fluid every 2 or 3 years, you
have a failed trans

All vehicle fluids break down & very few people
change them

How to change gearbox oil


gear + BOX
so is the transfer case, box. or the 5 speed stick box or?
what?
we drain it then fill it, to the mark.
on all gear boxes.
if A/T we RTM read the operators guide. for how to do it right,
most dont and wreck the tranny. the #1 reason they removed the filler.
when posting car issues, stated what it is.
like this.
95 Trooper, 4wd M/T , i want to change the 5speed box lube.
what do i need to do that.?
ill spin the wheel of fate, and land on 5speed box.
and answer for TR5 and NV1500 boxes.

For all transmissions except for the Borg-Warner T5R, replace the transmission fluid at the first 15,000 miles (24,000 km) and then every 30,000 miles (48,000 km) thereafter. The Borg-Warner T5R transmission does not require periodic changing of the transmission fluid. (they lie)
  1. Raise the vehicle and support safely on jack-stands. Place a fluid catch pan under the transmission drain plug.
  2. Remove the fill plug from the side of the transmission, then remove the drain plug. Be cautious when removing the drain plug: the transmission fluid can be very hot. Allow the transmission fluid to drain into the pan.
  3. Install the drain plug and tighten to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm) for all models except the 1996 Hombre, which requires 27 ft. lbs. (37 Nm).
  4. Refer to the manual transmission fluid recommendations for the proper viscosity of engine oil, or type of transmission fluid to be used for the T5R and NV1500 transmissions. Fill the transmission by pouring the new fluid through the fill plug hole in the side of the transmission. Fill until the fluid starts to dribble out of the filler hole. Install the fill plug to 17 ft. lbs. (23 Nm), then lower the vehicle.
so next you ask, what fluid
sure.
Use engine oil for all of the manual transmissions, except for the Borg-Warner T5R and the NV1500 (1996 Hombre). Make sure to use engine oil of the correct viscosity for these transmissions, as follows:
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 40
  • Except 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30SF
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, high temperature-SAE 15W-40, 20W-40 or 20W-50
  • 1992-96 Rodeo and Trooper, normal temperature-SAE 5W-30
he Borg-Warner (B-W) T5R is found on Rodeo models with the V6 engine. The 1991-93 B-W T5R uses DEXRON-II automatic transmission fluid, whereas the 1994-96 B-W transmission uses DEXRON- III automatic transmission fluid.

use the highest Dexron number, on the shelf, mark III is not made today.

Where is the trans fill plug on a 1996 dodge avenger


I helped a mechanic,once,to change a transmission mount(?) and in the process he pointed at a plug on the side of the transmission and he said it was where you fill up with fluid (oil or transmission fluid,depends what it uses) you start filling and as you do, you check level by sticking your finger in the hole and stop filling when you feel the tip of your finger get wet.... Good luck and wash your finger afterwards!!!!!

How much does it cost to have the trans. fluid in 08m tacoma at the dealer


it will cost you from $80 to $120 at dealer. (depend what is your state)
But if DIY will cost you 4qt to 5qt of transmission fluild. Price each quart $ 5.00 to 7.00 ea ( dealer price)
Hint : You must use the right transmission fluid type (buy from Toyota dealer never get wrong fluid)
Change transmission fluid is not same as change engine oil.
So Be careful. don't mess up your transmission, it will cost you more than $4500

Were is the transmission filter


The transmission filter is inside the transmission pan that holds the fluid. The transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 30,000 miles. You have to drop the tranny pan to drain the old fluid and then you can change the filter. Always use the proper transmission fluid for your car.
I could sit here and tell you the step by step procedure but that will take hours. The very best thing you can do is buy a Haynes repair manual for your car and year at any auto parts store @ Advanced, Autozone. Read the step by step in the manual. I have used these for 40 years with all my vehicles and saved tons of cash in labor costs.

Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. Don't forget to rate me.
