You are watching: 2009 toyota corolla transmission fluid capacity


*

Does anyone here have an authoritative reference for the *total* capacity of the auto tranny in a 2009 Corolla S. I think it"s a u341e.I have an internet copy of the FSM I bought from ebay and can"t find anything in that regard. The OM simply gives the drain and fill info for capacity (2.6 US quarts).But what I"m looking for is the total capacity of the transmission.

When I"ve done my drain & fills it came about to about 3.2 qts (actually measured). Per Amsoil total capacity is 6.9 qts.http://www.amsoil.com/AmsoilGarage/internal/vehiclelookuppage.aspx?url2=2009+TOYOTA+COROLLA+3

Thanks for the Amsoil reference. I"d really like a Toyota reference and don"t understand why that info is so hard to obtain.I"ve found that 2.5 quarts (US) works perfectly for the 2009 Corolla with the small engine. We got the car with 93k on it and I"ve been changing tranny fluid (drain and fill) every other oil change to get some fresh fluid in there. But without knowing the total, I can"t determine how many D&Fs I wish to do.Based on 6.9 quarts total system capacity and (in my case) 2.5 Qts per drain and fill, I find I"ll need 5 fluid changes to get about 90% fresh fluid in the system. Here"s a screen shot of my spreadsheet.Lol. After 20 changes, I"ll have to go to 4 decimal places to see something other than zeros in some of the fields.

Everytime I"ve changed the fluid it takes over 3 quarts to fill to the proper level. I"m sure some of this depends on the angle of the car when you drain it and how much you let "drip out" over time.

What year Corolla? The OM that I have for the 2009 Corolla calls for 2.6 US quarts for a drain and fill for the 1.8 L engine.
Last change was with the car sitting on the wheels in my garage which has a very slight rear slope (for drainage, I suppose). Otherwise, I change it with the car sitting on 4 jackstands... so basically equivalent to sitting on the wheels in my garage. Whatever slope exists should be the same.
I have found the OM to be correct, I change my ATF every year.If you are a bit leary like I was first time, buy 3L of Toyota WS-ATF as it will be more than enough to replenish. Then on level ground drain the ATF into a container and measure the volume. Whatever comes out is the amount you should put back in. Simple as that.

Double checked my manual and it shows 3.1 qts, slightly less than I remembered. Strange. But as Leanburn stated, measure amount drained & replace with same. Mine has always started and ended with full on the stick.
As I said earlier (and after 2 drain and fill operations), 2.5 US quarts is what it takes to return to the full line on my 2009 Corolla (which is very close to the OM spec of 2.6 quarts).So if you have a different year Corolla, the spec may be different.

Mine is a 2009. My OM looks just like the one pictured bystvotw. I have no idea where the others are getting their information.

This is very interesting. I found that if I put in 2 qts 22 oz (2.7 qts) it was uncomfortably overfilled on the dipstick, even after driving it a considerable distance. I ended up draining about 6 oz after driving it for a while like that. So at the 2nd drain and fill, I put in 2.5 US qts and it hit the full mark right on the money and stays there after driving it quite a bit. I can"t imagine putting in 3.1 qts. I confess that the image I posted above is from the online copy of the OM. I"ll look at the actual paper copy and verify that information. I"ll watch closely next time I do a D&F. I record everything, so I try to be very thorough.Edit: here"s a pic from the paper copy of the OM:
I"m at a loss how to explain how one calls for 3.1 qts and another calls for 2.6 qts. How is that possible?
