Yes but keep the speed down, and don't pull any thing with it until its topped off. kIa uses a special trans. fluid called red this fluid can't be mixed with any other trans. fluid.

SOURCE: Changing transmission fluid for 06 Kia Sedona

Transmissions these days need very little maintenance, our fluids are advanced formulas that hold up for an average of 100,000 miles, most vehicle manufactures recommend no maintenance for automatic transaxles these days.As for a transmission flush I don't recommend this because it's an expense that is not needed and possibly could loosen some contaminants setting them loose to possibly clog some of the very small passages in the transaxle requiring full transaxle service,which could include removal,dissassembly,etc of your trans.Now draining and replacing fluid is OK if that makes you feel a peace of mind but normally not needed,if you decide to do that,as far as quantity just note approx. how much fluid is drained and purchase similar amount in quarts and then refill (DO NOT OVERFILL)
start engine, let it warm up to operating temp,then check the transmission dipstick for the correct level,remember the vehicle needs to be on a level surface,hot idiling in park when you check the fluid level. Good luck !

SOURCE: how many quarts does the refill take after

I would say 4 to 5 quarts, like the guys at the dealership. It takes 9 quarts when the torque converter is empty, it holds close to 4 quarts. You might want to wait a bit to check the level after filling to get a more precise reading. You may have been low on transmission fluid when you drained it. The one I drained had at least 4 quarts in it, not counting the torque converter.

Check and make sure you dont have a air pocket in the cooling system. I would have you a/c pressure checked to make sure you didnt over pressurize the system.

Need to know where to add transmission fluid in a dodge caravan 2008


You would add transmission fluid type ATF-4 to the transmission at the place where the transmission dipstick is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment. If there is no dipstick but instead a plug that says dealer use only you need to take it to the dealer for them to check it. If it is low or the pan is leaking they may try to get you to spend $200 on a flush and fill but you could still do it your self for half of that. If you have the 4speed transmission (on the 3.3l engine) the filter is about $10 and it will take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. If you have the 6speed transmission on the 3.8l or 4.0l engines you will need to go to the dealership for the filter $30 and make your own gasket with RTV silicone. It will also take about 5.5 quarts of fluid when drained. Make sure you have several hours for the fluid to drain and then a day for the RTV silicone to dry before refilling. Then have the dealer check the level again. Good Luck.

How much tranamission fluid does my 1997 sable hold


If you have your owners manual, there is a section containing the capacities for all fluids. You may also simply check your fluid level, with a running motor and warm transmission. If the stick indicates add, start with a 1/4 quart and work your way up. Unless there is a problem with the trans, there is no real reason to ever add fluid unless your are flushing the transmission.

How to Change transmission fluid on 2001 celica


Hi there, hope these few steps help:
  • Raise the car with a jack and support the vehicle with jack stands sufficiently rated to safely support the weight of the vehicle.
  • Place a large drip pan under the transmission.
  • Remove the transmission fluid drain bolt with a wrench. The drain bolt is located at the bottom of the transmission facing the pan. The pan is the large flat plate that covers the very bottom of the transmission.
  • Drain the transmission fluid into the drip pan.
  • Reinstall the transmission fluid drain bolt with the same wrench used to remove the bolt.
  • Lower the vehicle to the ground after removing the jack stands.
  • Open the hood and remove the transmission dipstick from the filler tube by pulling the dipstick. The end of the dipstick will be curved into a circle to allow a finger to slide into the circle to withdraw the dipstick.
  • Place a funnel into the dipstick tube and fill the transmission with new fluid by pouring the fluid into the dipstick tube.
  • Remove the funnel and check the fluid level with the dipstick until the fluid reaches the "Full" mark on the tip of the dipstick.
  • Start and allow the engine to run for a few minutes.
  • Move the transmission gear selector through all of the gears while depressing the brake pedal.
  • Turn the engine off and check the fluid level on the dipstick. Add transmission fluid if necessary.
Best of luck.

What kind of fluid do i need for my transfer case in my 03 silverdo 1500 5.3l 4l60e and how many quarts


It depends on what transfer case you have in your vehicle.There are 4 different types.The best way to tell is go into the glove box and on the bottom there is a small decal sticker about the size of a credit card it will have the info you need.Look for the NP codes i.e.NP8.NP1,NP2,NP3or NP8.I`ll give you the G.M.part numbers.NP1,NP2,and NP3, are the same 88861800.NP8 takes Auto-Trak 2 12378508.They take 2 quarts.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How do you drain the transmission fluid from a 1988 acura legend coupe?


The drain plug is on the right side of the automatic transmissions towards the front. You will get 2 to 3 quarts out and need to get Honda approved fluid (which is really Dextron I). It is $8 a quart at the dealer and the Castrol version is half the cost.

The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.

As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

Capacity of fluid for a transmission of a 2006 F150 5.4L Truck. Book says 13.9 quarts I emptied 3-4 quarts.


you must have just drained the pan? There is much more held in the converter. The one I am rebuilding this week is an 05 and doesn't have a drain plug on it (not many do anymore). A flush is the only way to change it all out. 13.9qts sounds like the total amount if the trans was completely empty, converter and all
