Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

Oil in the cooling system


oil in the cooling system comes from a transmission oil cooler in the radiator leaking. I take it that you have an automatic transmission Normally if you have a gasket problem the water would be in the sump oil. You will need to replace the radiator to effectively fix the problem and as a side suggestion consider an air cooled transmission oil cooler for the transmission oil as it helps the car to run cooler and keeps the transmission oil cooler and extends the life of the transmission.

Transmission oil foaming and pushing out of dipstick tube during normal transmission operation. Transmission has been serviced - oil & filter replaced with OEM components.


Hello,

Has the suction filter been serviced? And what transmission oil have you used? Is it John Deere hydraulic oil or hydraulic/transmission oil? Does the tractor have a loader?

Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.


If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

Twhere is oil drainplug located


The oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission. There are two plugs in the oil pan, one for engine oil and one for transmission drain. The one closest to the left front corner is the engine oil. Loosen the drain and allow just a little of the oil to drain out and check it. It should be dark colored and smell like engine oil rather than transmission oil. The transmission oil drain is nearer the center of the transmission.

Good Luck

Does the yamaha fz 750 use transmission fluid or just the motro oil


The FZ750 uses the same oil for the transmission and crankshaft and top end. All oil is stored in the oil pan below the transmission and distributed throughout the engine by an oil pump.
If you are asking if you need to use different oil for the transmission than the engine, no.
If the oil level is correct for the transmission, it is correct for the whole engine.

How to replace transmission oil


to replace the oil on your transmission is not that hard but as a auto technician I should advice you that if on any vehicle the transmission oil has never been changed and is a high millage vehicle by changing the oil the transmission can slip or go neutral you should take your vehicle to a transmission shop and have the oil changed there with special oil changing machine that would clean the transmission and converter while it replaces the old oil and if there's a risk on damaging the transmission then they will tell you before changing the oil on your transmission and if they change the oil and any problems should happen then they are responsible for your transmission but if you insist to change it your self by removing the oil pan on the transmission you let all the oil out some of these Japanese vehicles have a drain plug you can take the brain plug out then remove the oil pan once you remove the oil pan then you'll see the transmission filter with socket wrench using a 10 mm socket remove the filter and the same way replace it with the new filter don't over tork the screws tighten to 15 lb. then remove the old oil pan gasket and make sure by doing all this process everything is extra clean, clean out oil pan and replace gasket and install oil pan then after you finish pour in 3 qt. of good quality transmission oil then turn on engine and take the shifter to R then D and last N and with engine on check the level and add as needed good luck
