Fill Amount

Transmission pan and drain plug removal

1.7 liters (1.8 US qts, 1.5 Imp. qts)

Transmission valve body removal

4.3 liters (4.5 US qts, 3.8 Imp. qts)

Torque converter removal

5.4 liters (5.7 US qts, 4.8 Imp. qts)

(e) Install the refill plug.

HINT:

If you cannot fill the listed amount of fluid, perform the following:

(1) Start the engine and idle it.

NOTICE:

Check that electrical systems such as the air conditioning system, audio system and lighting system are off.

(2) Move the shift lever through the entire gear range to circulate the fluid.

(3) Wait for 30 seconds with the engine idling.

(4) Stop the engine.

(5) Remove the refill plug.

(6) Fill the transmission with the remaining fluid until the amount in the table has been filled.

(7) Install the refill plug.

3. FLUID TEMPERATURE CHECK

NOTICE:

The ATF temperature can be confirmed by using the Techstream.

(a) Turn the ignition switch off.

(b) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.

(c) Turn the ignition switch to ON.

(d) Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Data List / A/T Oil Temperature 1.

(e) Check the ATF temperature.

NOTICE:

If the ATF temperature is higher than 45°C (113°F), turn the ignition switch off and wait until the fluid temperature drops to below 40°C (104°F).

4. FLUID LEVEL CHECK

NOTICE:

  • It is necessary to change to temperature detection mode in order to idle the vehicle appropriately.
  • The ATF temperature must be between 40 and 45°C (104 and 113°F) to accurately check the fluid level.

(a) When using the Techstream:

Enter the following menus: Powertrain / ECT / Active Test / Connect the TC and TE1.

Standard condition:

Indicator lights in the combination meter blink.

(b) When not using the Techstream:

Using SST, connect terminals 13 (TC) and 4 (CG) of the DLC3.

SST: 09843-18040

(d) Slowly move the shift lever from P to S, and then change the gear from 1st to 5th. Then return the shift lever to P.

HINT:

Slowly move the shift lever to circulate the fluid through each part of the transmission.

(e) Move the shift lever to D, and quickly move it back and forth between N and D (once within 1.5 seconds) for at least 6 seconds. This will activate the fluid temperature detection mode.

Standard condition:

Indicator light [A/T OIL TEMP] remains illuminated for 2 seconds and then turns off.


(f) When using the Techstream:

Return the shift lever to P and terminate the Active Test on the Techstream.

(g) When not using the Techstream:

Return the shift lever to P and disconnect SST from the DLC3.

(h) Allow the engine to idle until the fluid temperature reaches 40 to 45°C (104 to 113°F).

HINT:

The indicator [A/T OIL TEMP] will come on again when the fluid temperature reaches 40°C (104°F) and will blink if it is higher than 45°C (113°F).
