How to Drain & Fill ATF of a Toyota Avalon
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.
How to flush automatic transmission fluid Toyota 4Runner √
1996 1997 1998 1999 2000 2001 2002 Toyota 4Runner, V6 engine. **NOTE**The container with the new fluid, the cap has a hole on it. LOOK AGAIN!! 2001 Toyota 4Runner. Doing a transmission flush, using a 12 volt oil pump I bought from Ebay. I got the containers from the Toyota Detailers when I used to work there. You can go to any Car Detailer shop and ask for the empty ones. Most just throw them away. PLEASE READ WHY MY METHOD WORKS: The tranny pump sucks oil from the pan and pushed oil to the cooler. On the return the oil is dumped into the pan, not sucked into the pan. This is why the gravity feed did not work so good. There is no force that is sucking the fluid back into the transmission. It is all being pushed into the transmission. By removing the push part by disconnecting the transmission out line into a old fluid bucket, I have to use a pump to replace that push pressure, which this video is showing by pushing the new fluid. FLUID FLOW Normal operation: Transmission pushes out to cooler, cooler keeps getting pushed back to transmission Gravity assist: Transmission push out to bucket /continuity broken/ From new fluid bucket, there is none (or not enough) gravity assist pressure to cooler thus nothing going back to transmission. Pump method: Transmission push out to bucket /continuity broken/push new fluid to cooler via pump, keeps getting pushed back to transmission The information contained in this video is for general guidance, not responsible for any errors or injuries that you have done.

Follow me on TWITTER: @88bmyvegas and http://lasvegasautoinsider.blogspot.com/ From one of my viewers made a comment on the first spark plug. "The brownish deposit on the plug threads is actually combustion by-products which are forced between the spark plug and threads in cylinder head. if time permits: crack the plug loose (1/4 to 1/2 turn); pour 1 teaspoon 50/50 mix of kerosene and denatured alcohol into the spark plug well (aluminum head) or 50/50 ATF/acetone mix (iron head). After 2 hours at 20 degrees C ambient, start the engine for no more than 1 minute, let it cool down for 15 minutes and remove the plugs".
