Replaced ATF for my Premio 2006 with Toyota Type IV ATF. The problem is my mechanic has put 4 liters in the car. In morning when I check the level, it seems over filled. I asked the mechanic on which he said that the level of ATF is checked with gear lever in R position and brake pressed. I dont believe him. I have searched the web for service manual for Premio 2006 but couldnt find one. how much ATF to be put in the car and if the level is high, what damage it can make to the car like leaking seals etc??
change your mechanic before he do all experiments over your vehicle at your expense. - share the numbers mentioned as Trans/ Axle on vehicle identification plate. Premio is CVT and fluid needed is this one
Mine is not CVT I guess, CVT came in Premio 2007 model. The old ones had Automatic Transmission Fluids Replacement. I only want to know about the quantity because the level seems over filled. Please help. Thanks
to answer that I requested for tarns/axle number to identify. Usually when filter is changed it takes about 3.75 litres, without filter it is under 3.38 ~ 3.50 litres. - Check the dipstick it must be marked Cold [ C ] - Hot/Warm [ W or H ] fluid shall be upto either mark in either condition.
checking the system in R is an oldschool way for the old GM turbo 450 transmissions.
These new ones ask for the lever to be in Park, engine running and upto temperature, make sure you shift the transmission lever through all positions too.
