The transmission fill plug is located on the backside of the tranny. (Down by the driver side cv shaft) You must fill it at that point. I have read that the tranny fluid must be bought from the Suzuki Dealer, but I am still looking into that? You should be able to add fluid into that hole until it starts to slowly run back out. Then it is filled to the right amount. ( A lot like a manual trans.) These cars are a money pit. Nice when they are running though. 2004 Suzuki Forenza

Transmission fluid

Transmission fluid should be checked with the engine warmed up and running in Park. The dipstick is always near the back of the engine bay, and is VERY long when you pull it out. Transmission fluid should be red. It should not be brown.
Changing transmission fluid is much more difficult than changing engine oil. Engine oil can be changed by removing a plug and draining it out. Transmission oil can only be changed by removing brackets, removing the pan (think of a shallow oven pan bolted to the bottom of the transmission) and letting all the fluid drain out. A transmission fluid change should ALWAYS include a new filter and gasket as well. This is one best left to a shop with the proper tools.

Is doing a transmission flush the same as changing the differntial fluid?

No, a transmission flush replaces the fluid in your transmission. A diff. service would replace the fluid in the rear end also the transfer case and front diff. if you have a 4 wheel drive truck.

Changing transmission fluid

transmission fluid change is similar to changing the oil you need to find where the gearbox sump plug is and undo it and fluid will come out. to replace fluid with new pour it into where you check the fluid level

Where can i find the oil gauge for a automatic transmisson for my 2008 FJ Cruiser

This transmission doesn't have transmission dipstick to check the oil, this is a 'sealed" transmission which uses WS (world standard) transmission fluid, toyota claims this fluid never needs servicing but most dealers recommend changing the fluid at 100,000 miles, I myself own an 07 and changed the fluid at 60,000. Changing the fluid requires some special equipment and procedure so it's best left to the toyota dealer on this one.

What is the recommended millage for a transmission flush

Transmission fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles, or more frequently if the vehicle is used for towing or carrying heavy loads.

When replacing the transmission fluid, first the mechanic drives the vehicle to get the fluid warm and then removes the drain plug at the bottom of the transmission (if applicable), or removes the transmission pan allowing the fluid to drain.

The transmission is then filled with fresh fluid, and the engine is started. With the engine running and the transmission in "Park," the mechanic checks the level of the transmission fluid on the dipstick. Then the vehicle is driven once more, and the fluid level rechecked; if needed, more fluid is added.

Using the wrong automatic transmission fluid may invalidate the manufacturer's warranty and affect the shift characteristics of the transmission. Consult the owner's manual for information on the kind of fluid to use.

Many automatic transmissions have a filter that can be replaced when changing the transmission fluid. Changing this filter may allow a closer examination of the fluid for debris, which may be a sign that the transmission is about to fail.

Hope this helps.

Do i need transmission fluid change even the fluid level and color is good. i did not change last 3 years. drove almost 50000 miles.

It is always a good idea to follow manufacture recommendations when changing any fluid. I would say that it definetly would not hurt to change the transmission fluid after 50k miles and three years. While you are changing the fluid, look into changing out the filter too.

Transmission fluid

you should change your fluid at or around every 100,000 miles. also look into changing the transmission filter when you change the fluid. IMPORTANT: if you are having transmission problems like a slipping gear of lack of gear, DO NOT change the fluid as it will most likely free up whatever is making your transmission work currently. take it to aamco and have them diagnose it, only if you are having trouble, otherwise changing the tranny fluid is something you can easily do in your driveway or garage.

Changing transmission fluid ?

Let a mechanic do it. Messing with your transmission is crazy. If you have never had your transmission fluid changed I wouldnt even do it. Changing it might cause problem, the transmission is used to a thicker fluid seeing it would be older. Putting new thinner fluid in could ruin it
