Transmission Fluid Check

The transmission fluid level should be checked only with the vehicle parked on level ground.

Be sure the vehicle is on level ground and apply the parking brake.
Disconnect the electrical connector from the Vehicle Speed Sensor.
Disconnect the speedometer cable from the VSS.
Remove the VSS bolt and gently pry out the VSS.
Check the fluid level.
If necessary, add transmission fluid.
Position the VSS. Install the VSS bolt. Tighten the VSS bolt to 8-12 N-m (69-104 lb-in).
Connect the speedometer cable.
Connect the VSS electrical connector.

Transmission Fluid Drain

Raise and support the vehicle.
Clean the transaxle drain plug area.
Remove the drain plug and drain the fluid into a suitable container.
Install a new washer and tighten the drain plug to 39-54 N-m (29-40 lb-ft).
Lower the vehicle.

Transmission Fluid Fill

Disconnect the electrical connector from the Vehicle Speed Sensor.
Disconnect the speedometer cable from the VSS.
Remove the VSS bolt and gently pry out the VSS.
Place a funnel into the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS) mounting hole.
Add the specified transmission fluid until the "full" level on the VSS is reached.
Position the VSS. Install the VSS bolt. Tighten the VSS bolt to 8-12 N-m (69-104 lb-in).
Connect the speedometer cable to the VSS.
Connect the VSS electrical connector.
