Transmission Filter & Gasket Replacement Toyota Camry V6
An instructional video on how to replace the automatic transmission fluid, filter and pan gasket on a Toyota Camry with a V6 engine. Procedure is similar to many other cars that use a transmission filter (and not just a screen). The fluid is drained via 10mm hex bolt, then 17 10mm bolts are removed to drop the pan. The filter is held in by 3 10mm bolts. Keep the work area clean, as this can quickly become a messy job. A drain and fill of the transmission fluid will replace 1/3rd of the transmission fluid, as the rest is inside the torque converter. Frequent drain and fills over a period of time are recommended to keep the transmission oil fresh and clean. A fluid flush through the cooler lines is not recommended for older vehicles, due to the possibility of clogging a passage with debris. The fluid was brown after an unknown amount of miles, and the filter had some small particles on its screen. The magnets were full of a magnetic sludge. Once everything was cleaned it was reinstalled to 69in-lb of torque, and the drain bolt to 36 lb-ft of torque. The transmission was refilled with Castrol Domestic ATF, which is Dextron III compatible.

Toyota Transaxle Fluid Level Check - No Dipstick
Weber State University (WSU) - Automotive Technology Department - Transmission Lab. This episode demonstrates the proper method and tool needed to check the automatic transaxle fluid level of a 2007 and newer Aisin U660E/F or U760E/F 6-speed automatic transaxle. This transaxle is used in many front-wheel drive Toyota vehicles including the Camry, Venza, Sienna, as well as several Lexus vehicles. This transaxle has no dipstick and is somewhat difficult to determine if the fluid level is correct. The tools needed for this procedure are there are: ATF Level Gauge Kit = 10002-00101, Pump and tank = 00002-11100-02. They are available through OTC Tools, call 1-800-933-8335 As an automotive professor, I hear from a lot of people and students who have a negative reaction to this video and wonder why they took away the dipstick. Think about this: if a dipstick is so easy to use, you should be able to answer all of the following questions: 1. At what temperature is the "cold" mark accurate? 2. At what temperature is the "hot" mark accurate? 3. What temperature does the dipstick even refer to? Outside air? Coolant temperature? Transmission fluid temperature? 4. How will you measure that temperature? 5. If the fluid is within the cold mark area marks when it is "cold", is the fluid level okay? 6. if you live in a cold climate area like Alaska, is the "cold" level accurate there? What if you lived in a hot climate area like Central America, is their "cold" mark accurate? If you cannot answer all of the previous questions, should you be using a dipstick? All transmission fluid expands when heated, you must know what the fluid temperature is to check its fluid level properly. This is not a new concept. It began back in 1940 with the world's first mass produced automatic transmission, the Oldsmobile Hydra-Matic transmission. See Ford, Chevrolet, Chrysler, BMW, Mercedes, etc. all do the same thing. This is not just a Toyota thing. See my other three videos: This video was created and edited by John D. Kelly at WSU.

10 Min Automatic Transmission Fluid Flush + Replacement (Most Cars) Ever wanted to do a complete Automatic Transmission Service with a Fluid Flush and Fluid Change! Well now you can do it in 10 Minutes! This DIY is super easy really fast and ridiculously cheap. The reason we didn't change the filter is because the filter on this transmission is internal and you would have to take apart the transmission to get to it. There is a a filter for the shift solenoid that can be cleaned to improve shifting. There is a small black round filter for the transmission, its under the air box near the solenoid that could be changed if you want to be more thorough. Catch us in our other 10 Minute Challenge videos!
