I'm not quite sure I understand pumping the new ATF fluid in.

It looks as though you are pumping it in through the same drain drain hole the old ATF came out of at the start.

It you are, why isn't the ATF coming out as soon as you start putting it in?

Excellent post by the way.

no its not the drain hole its the one which must be used for filling the new oil #1 is for draining and #2 is for filling, most of the time both of them must be taken off at the same time to be cleaned well

3 questions:

1. After you filled 3 liters and started the engine, did you leave the engine on while pumping the remaining 3.7 liters?

2. Additionally, did you have to apply any gasket compound after removal of old gasket and before the new gasket was replaced?

3. How can you be certain all of the old fluid drained? One post I read stated that there were inaccessible chambers in the the tranny that required the fluid to be vacuumed out.

Thanks for the write up ... it looks easier than everyone had previously thought, which concerns me ... is it really that easy?

question 1 - yes engine must be running
question 2 - i have not used anything, only new gasket
question 3 - total amount of the transmission oil is 10 liters in the transmission but only 7 liters are replaceable if you do it in the way as i did, using vacuum i have not heard to be honest. 3 liters of old oil stays in the radiator and cooling system of transmission hope i answered your questions

ATF Level, Checking and Filling
  • The ATF level is specified by a permanently installed overflow tube in the oil pan.


  • The ATF level is checked when fluid is a specific temperature and with engine running. The ATF temperature is read out by the Vehicle Diagnosis, Testing and Information System VAS 5051B . If the test temperature has been reached, the sealing plug in the oil pan is removed to check the ATF. Marty
Test temp is 30 C
