You can barely see it and reach it from the top of the engine compartment on the driver's side. Am still considering the redneck flush, actually bought a bucket last night to catch the fluid. Glad nothing ominous turned up in the transmission oil pan. No worries, and I'm not dogging on you from the other thread. If I remember your transmission is auto.
Check the dipstick to verify proper filling over relying on the amount added. It may take a squirt of pb blaster, but in my experience they should pop loose. Welcome to your best source of information for automotive and light truck oil and fluid capacities. All of those things were outside of my abilities 2 years ago. My thought was that by replacing less than 50% of the fluid, I could get a slight change in the fluid before doing a full fluid replacement. If so, add the f … luid in the steel tube where the cap was. I have a 1996 model, but I'm sure they're the same.
It's going to be a slow procedure, though, because you have to turn the car on to get the fluid in the pan so you can drain it. The rebuild kits are not expensive, and hard parts damage can be avoided if the rebuild takes place early enough in the wear cycle. However, if you're filling an empty transmission and torque converter you'll need quite a bit more fluid. Others will pipe in if i missed something. Make sure the transmission is fully functional before upgrading anything.
Added fluid based on the Haynes manual and several other sites suggested fluid and filter change recommending 5 quarts. The debris in the pan was very small and soft and difficult for me to identify, pictures will come later as I'm away from home. Vehicles with the automatic transmission receive slightly less fuel economy with 17 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

Any amount of measuring, from that point, would have been inaccurate, though I did start with an empty pan and could've measured had I not missed. Also could you give us someway to test the function of the transmission so we would know how to assess any problems? Best at the Holiday Season, good to get your post. Sorry, but the fill capacity for just a change of the filter and the fluid in the pan is not in the manual.
This plastic cap can be removed after giving it a 90 degree counter clockwise twist. Jeff, the 700R4 and 4L60 have an extra low first gear ratio. As for this point, I was aware of that as well. There's a big difference in quantity between a 'drain' ~5qts and a 'flush' ~10qts My guess is that you drained like 3qts, then added 5. As for slipping, this is again a noticeable engine revving sound that makes you instinctively back out of the throttle! I am simply trying to be more diligent about my automotive maintenance and tackle the things I can myself.
Fill with Mercon or Mercon V Mercon is what the Users Manual calls for, and Mercon V is an allowed lternate. Any other type of puller will destroy the pulley and then you will need a new pulley. On the other hand if you're on a mountain with no library I'd start filling it with fluid apropriate to your make of vehicle , one quart at a time, until it showed on the dipstick at which point I'd start the vehicle, keeping it in park let it warm up , now… I'm not real sure about the '92 model truck, but on my '98 tacoma there are 2 plugs directly on the transmission; one up high on one side and the other down low on the other side. Overall height and curb weight for the short-bed stock models measures 70. On the passenger side, near the firewall and down a foot or two, you'll find it.
Simply click on the button below, and then follow the directions to prepare a complete and printable list of filters and fluid capacities for your vehicle. That will hold back detent the shift, causing a harder upshift due to the increased throttle pressure. You can use it in older vehicles with no problems. If the dipstick reads correctly after shifting through the gears manually a few times, then drive a few times, then do the shift through gears procedure. These are usually pretty sensitive to the proper amount of torque.
While I will likely never be as educated as most in the matter, if I don't try, I certainly won't be. Loosen, then remove the belt. I am courteous with my responses, I see no reason why someone else shouldn't be. Thanks in advance for anything you can contribute on the matter. Use a fluid such as Pyroil Valvoline. There is a 10millimeter bolt holding the drive gear in place. There is a plastic cap on the top of a steel tube on the back of the power steering pump.
