1.
Remove the ATF Injection hole(eyebolt) (A).

Eyebolt tightening torque:
2.9 ~ 4.9 N.m (0.3 ~ 0.5 kgf.m, 2.2 ~ 3.6 lb-ft)

Always replace the O-Ring(A) of the eyebolt use new one whenever loosening eyebolt.

2.
Add ATF SP-IV 700cc to the ATF injection hole.
3.
Start the engine. (Dont step on brake and accelerator simultaneously.
4.
Confirm that the temperature of the A/T oil temperature sensor is 50~60C(122~140F) with the GDS.

6.
Lift the vehicle, then remove the oil level plug (A) from the valve body cover.

At this time, the vehicle must be a horizontal state.
7.
If the oil flows out of the overflow plug in thin steady stream, the oil level is correct.
Then finish the procedure and tighten the oil plug.
Oil level check (excess or shortage) method
Excess: Drain quantity exceed 900cc for tow minutes.{50~60C(122~140F)}
Shortage: No drain.
If there is no damage at the automatic transaxle and the oil cooler, the oil cooler hose, transaxle case, valve body tightening state are normal, ATF must drop out after performing above 1 to 7 procedures.
