Hi and Welcome to just answer!
I am Pavlin and will be assisting you with your question
hey im yuriy
I can send you coplete procedure if you would like, or I can explain with my own words.
to do it properly, you will need scan tool connected to vehicle diagnostics.
which one is easier cause i bought the oil for the transmission today from the dealer then the dealer told me i have to use a special tool to poor the oiul in and have to take it to them is this true
Yes and NO, Transmission temperature has to be 30C degrees at time of checking
this will asure proper level.
so which step could i do at my house and which do i have to ake to them
first you will check if fluid id needed or not.
let say now is summer time and daytime temperature is around 25C
i just replaced the tranmission my self cause i wrecked the old transmission and the junkyard i bought it from told me they completely drained it before they sold it to me
so what would i do first to pour the oil in
oil is fitted from the bottom of of transmission oil pan
so would i put a tube in the bottom where there is a bolt in the oil pan and how would i telll if the transmision is full
there is tool. small pipe with treads, which will be treaded to the plase of oil drain plug and then using pump, or manual pump
first you will fill about 4 litters untill start dripping
then you will start the engine and continue filling untill it drips again
where exactly were it start dripping from and whrere can i get this tool from
it will drip from same plase where you are adding the oil
but when i take this tube off wont the loi pour out of this hole
just give me a minute I will prepare info for you with pictures
not if engine is running
so if the engine is running it wont pour out where could i buy this tool from
when starts to drip with running engine then it is full. you will have to close it while engine is idling,
just a minute, I will send you info and will check where you can buy,
click here to see info
do i only need this adapter piece or the pump also, or could i just hang the oil up and let gravity pull the oil in
adaptor you need
pump you do not cause you do not do this everyday
you can use one of those hand oil fill pumps,will try to send you picture
finnaly i read the info you sent i said pull the atf out and see if it is dripping does this mean pull the adapter or what exactly does that mean
I will send you the amount of oil transmission needs
but yes you will pull it out and if does not drip, then you add more
the dealership told me i need 5 litters of oil thats what i bought
when transmission is empty, new fill is 7 litters
so i should buy 2 more and a new seal to close i off when im done filling it correct
yes, there may be a little left in the tranny you have, but you better have it then not.
you can also use a tool like this.
ill make sure i drain every last bit and then fill in 7 litters into the tranny is there anything else important i should now about doing this
Just to have the vehicle in flat leveled surface

finnaly if i pour to much into the tranny and it pours out when i remove the atf do i let it pour out until it starts dripping a little only or how do i do that
you add in small portions. but first you add oil without engine running
you will add about 3-4 litters
this will help transmission not to be dry when you start it
then you will continnue adding lets say 0.5 litters at the time.
then i will add in small portions and check for dripping for the adapter piece correct
yes, you just pull off filling hose from addaptor, if drips you are done, if not add more
no need to remove addaptor, only hose or plastic tube that will be used to go over it
look at picture with fluid level again and you will understand it
if level is more it will overflow
sorry lastly willl i us that hump you put a picture of up to pour in the oil correct
i mean pump not hump
it is handy and not expencive , it will do the work
you can buy in any local auto supply store
but i will have to pour the oil in in small portions with this pump correct
this pump only takes 1/2 litter
so it is perfect
