OK, but that doesn't meet the factory's requirements. There are lots of things I can do that don't meet factory requirements, but this is one I wouldn't think about short cutting only because I know...

He has no idea what he's talking about. The transmission has to be pretty cold to do the level setting procedure. It takes at least 12 hours to sufficiently cool. AMHIK.

The filter part number is quoted above. Ask their parts guy to look it up for you, have him print it out, then take it to the service manager.

I wouldn't do step 2 as written. I would drain the pan using the drain bolt first. Trying to drop the pan full will very likely make a huge mess. Other than that, you're right about the procedure....

It never ceases to amaze me how people who won't spend $1k a year for subscription to TIS complain about me doing this and posting helpful information that LEXUS got wrong.

Exactly. Way easier. Adding fluid while running is a crapshoot.

If you have a shallow 24mm socket, the filler hole is no big deal. For me the biggest PITA is getting the car up, leveled, and at the right temperature. Waiting for it to cool takes an eternity, so...

If I were going to play a guessing game, I'd use 4 ounce increments. Try 4 ounces, if it isn't enough, try another 4. If it is still acting up at that point, you really should do it by the book.

30:1 will not ignite. Years ago, it was a huge achievement to get a 17:1 mixture to ignite and it took microwave emitting spark plugs to do it. This sounds really weird and like you're not getting...

Your source is not wrong. I would add the 0.4l of fluid on principle and start the level setting process. If you choose to do this after starting the engine, you'll be working right next to a...

12 liters should be pretty close to enough. The drain and level plugs are marked. You would have to be illiterate to mess it up.

I've run 120cc over and did not have any issues. I did that by setting the level per the manual, then adding 120cc through the fill hole afterwards. I figured it would be a hedge against running low...

Odds are it isn't fine. These gearboxes seem to be pretty finicky about fluid level. While you can't just plug in and read the fluid level, you certainly can adjust it, and you can do a lot of...

After some digging, the difference between the ISF and GSF (RCF) AA80E gearboxes is the valve body. Not sure what they changed, but from my cursory look, the major guts are the same, but the valve...

Interesting new note - the GSF has the Aisin AA80E in it. I did some poking around and found two very interesting things - first, the part number for the AA80E in the ISF is not the same part number...

That has not been my experience. Once the gearbox reaches full operating temperature, it takes all of 8 hours to cool. When I did this in the summer, it was 74 degrees in the morning in my garage. ...

I finally decided it was time to do something more dramatic than just send samples, so I dropped the pan and replaced the filter last night. In doing so, I drained a little over 5 quarts of ATF....
