There is no (tube), like in most cars. You have to go underneath the car & remove a plug, (similar to the engine oil drain plug... except on the side of the transmission pan). It is quite difficult to fill & there is no dipstick. Just use your finger to feel the level. It should be filled up the the level of the plug. Make sure your replace the O-ring.

Is it good practice to change Transmissin fluid


Periodic change of the fluid and filter is recommended by most manufacturers, usually around the 80-100K mark. However, most manufacturers DO NOT recommend transmission flushes since they may use chemicals that can damage o-rings and seals. If a transmission dies soon after a fluid and filter change, it would not have lasted very much longer than that without one.

How much transmission fluid does it take when changing the transmisssion screen and filter?


When the pan is dropped and fluid is drained, to refill, it usually needs 5 - 6 quarts. When refilling, check the transmission fluid dipstick as you are adding the last two quarts. And also run the transmission thru the gears.

How often do I need to change the transmission fluid on a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner?


I use 50,000 miles as a start. If I see burnt fluid or detect shifting problems or have to start adding fluid more often I go ahead and have the Filter and Fluid changed. A lot of locations will want to use a back flush system to flush the transmission and refill it with Synthetic fluid. You Transmission uses an actual filter and not a filter screen so do not let them do that. You will regret it if you do. In most cases, if you aren't experiencing shifting problems and your fluid is not burned, a brownish color instead of Red, you should be fine. Just make sure the level is correct.

Stumble driveing in high gear


First, check your transmission fluid. If it is low, you should fill it immediately. If it is full, but brown in color, it should be changed. A likely cause of the problem is a clogged filter. If you have not had the trans. filter changed on 60,000 or more miles, do so. It is a good idea to have the fluid flushed and refilled at this point as well. You may want to consider refilling with a synthetic fluid. This will tend to increase transmission lifespan. Just make sure the fluid is compatible with your vehicle. Mercon V is a good bet for this. Finally, there is a product called Lucas Transmission Fix. I use this in everything. I recommend using a bottle when refilling the transmission, no matter what kind of fluid you use. Put the Lucas in after 2-3 qts of transmission fluid, so as not to clog the pump at startup.

Transmission fluid change


Remove the plug and drain it. If it doesn't have a plug, remove the pan. Clean the screens and replace the gaskets with new ones. Refill.

Does a mazda 323f 2001 model need gearbox oil change after some milage or is it a sealed unit?


Automatic and standard transmission needs fluid change every 24 months. On automatic transmissions, the gasket needs to be changed as well as the filter. On standard transmission there is a drain plug that can be loosened up, and refilled through the refill hole. Standard transmission use gear oil, while automatic transmission uses automatic transmission fluid.

Have 115,000 miles on car ..when for an oil change and was told I needed to change transmission fluid and power steering fluid....Cannot locate my manual...when do these fluids need to be changed and is...


Regarding the transmission, if you have an automatic, use genuine Honda ATF fluid only and only do a drain and refill. A power flush will damage the Honda Transmission. It should be drained and refilled every 60k initially, then every 30k afterwards.
