Default NEED HELP ASAP!! 1JZ Transmission fluid

I'm changing out my 1jz auto transmission fluid today.

I try to search but can't really find the right amount of fluid it need and what kinda type I use.

If someone else could help me to the right link or tell me that be great before the dealership close.

1. How much fluid I need?
2. What type?

First thing to do is look at the bottom portion of the transmission dipstick. It should specify what fluid to use. If it doesn't you may be guided by what I have written below.

If your transmission is an A340E which is a 4-speed, then you will need Dexron 2. Since Dexron 2 is no longer currently manufactured, you can safely use Dexron 6 which is the current ATF specification.

If your tranny is an A341E which can still be a 4 or 5-speed automatic, then you will need to use T-IV transmission fluid. Preferably Toyota's own brand. The 4-speed A341E differs from the A340E in that it has a "manu-matic" function that allows you to drive it like a stick shift you by moving the shifter to the right and shifting up or down. By the way, if the dipstick indicates you use T-II, you can use T-IV. Hope this helps

If you are just going to drain the ATF from the oil pan, 3-4 quarts will be enough. Just make sure you DO NOT overfill. This will kill your seals in short order.
