--- ATF QUANTITY & TOOLS--
Just more info for you. You do not want to overfill the ATF. I have the same 98 Camry 2.2L 4 cyl, it specifies for a drain & fill, it uses 2.5 qt. ATF.

The drain plug is a 10mm hex key, so you need the 10mm hex "male" to stick it in and loosen with a ratchet. Tighten with 30 ft. lb. when you are done draining.

The 4 cyl uses a filter too, you don't have to change it every time you change your ATF. Probably good to do it every 2 yr or 30K mi. You can buy the Pro-King ATF filter for this car for $11; make sure you get the one for "the 15-bolt version" transmission, as you'll need to loosen 15 bolts before you get to see the filter.


--- FLUID CHOICE ---
For cheapest way, you can buy the SuperTech Dex III from Wal-Mart for $10/gal. Or Step up some and buy the good one fro mValvoline MaxLfe Dex/Mer ATF for $18/gal.

In owner's manual it calls for Dex II or compatible Dex III. Realistically Dex II is discontinued for years, Toyota really uses the "Mobil 3309" ATF, which you can still buy some from Wal-Mart or auto part store if you care to use the OEM fluid.

SOURCE: How do I check the transmission fluid and add

Do you have your owners' manual? Check the diagram there to see where the dipstick for the tranny fluid is. You generally have to check the fluid when the engine is hot. You can sometimes get help withe these things at the big box auto stores like Advance Auto. I hope this helps! Ask them to show you how to add the fluid. You could also go to the oil change place and get them to show you that any other crucial check points on your auto.

Im changing the transmission screen. How much fluid will i need?


Fluid capacity is stated on your owners manual. Or go online type on browser transmission fluid capacity of “make, model, year of your car”. If you drained the transmission fluid there would still be fluid left on the torque converter so for example the fluid capacity is 10 quarts there would be about 3 qrts left on the converter so all you need is 7 qrts. Of fluid.

How do you get the fluid out of the converter 2004 f150 when changinge fluild


You don't. That fluid stays in during a fluid change. Repair manuals show two refill capacities. One is for a normal change, and one for a complete overhaul, as when filling after installing, and transmission and torque converter are completely dry. Normal refill capacity is when the converter still has fluid in it.

How much transmission fluid does the Chevy Express Van hold? We don't have an owner's manual


Hi, you can download a manual here, but it does not specify the transmission capacity:
http://www.extendedgmwarranty.com/owners-manual/chevrolet/2006-Chevrolet-Express.pdfHere is the info you need:
4L60-E transmission Service change only - 5 quarts. Total refill - 11.2 quarts.

Total refill would include a tear-down of the transmission and empty the torque converter. If you are just dropping the pan and changing the filter, 5 quarts should do it.

Fluid capacity of an auto matic 4x4 frontier transmission


Your vehicle came with 2 different transmissions a RE42011A and a RL42011A. There's not much difference. The RE one takes 9 qts and the RL one takes 8.8 qts. This includes the torque converter as well. I'm not sure about the RL one but I know for a fact the the RE one has 20 bolts for the pan if that helps any. I hope this helps and good luck.

Changing trans fluid & filter wanting to know how much fluid to buy


2.5L engine - 8.4 qts, 3.0L & 3.8L engines – 12.8 qts.

The capacity specifications are if the transmission is totally empty, and here's the clincher for us average types: including the torque converter and radiator tank.

For us average types, even when doing a transmission fluid / filter change, it does not end up with an empty torque converter.

When you pull the transmission pan for the fluid/filter change, you end up with 4-6 quarts on average. The rest is still up inside the torque converter.

Measure what you drained and start with refilling that amount to put back in to return levels back to normal.

Simply use the dipstick to check level and add as is necessary.

NOTE: This is one of the points of distinction to having the transmission "flushed" - where a professional shop is going to hookup specialized equipment to achieve a full fluid exchange, or you do the flush yourself

Leaking fluid in transmission


I assume u have an automatic trans., there are 2 types for that year, model 41TE, which to drain and fill for a trans fluid change is 4 qts, not including what's in the torque converter, and model 31th (14 bolt fluid pan) which holds 8.9 qts including the torque converter. Interesting how my source gave one w/ torque con. one w/out.
