2005 Sienna Transmission Fluid Capacity?

What is the 2005 Sienna LE transmission's total fluid capacity?

I would like to know how much fluid would be necessary to fill a bone dry transmission.

Thanks!!

The manual only gives the drain and fill capacity.

I just changed mine. I went to the dealer. And the parts department sold me 4 Qt. It is about the correct amount for drain and fill.

Thanks for the input guys, you helped me realize I can just buy a bunch of quarts and just return the bottles I don't use.

I have 110k miles on my 2005 Sienna now and will be switching the ATF to Mobil1 synthetic. They blend the OEM T-iv fluid for Toyota so I have confidence that when they say their Mobil 1 synthetic is T-iv compatible, I believe them.

I'll let you know if I feel any difference or see any change in gas mileage.

Thanks!

Mind me asking how you will be getting all the tranny fluid out of the tranny?? I need to do the same for mine.

I have a 2003, which may be a bit different.
I drained the pan.....measuring what came out......removed the pan, measuring the additional fluid that I got out......cleaned the inside of the pan and magnets.....replaced the filter with a new one......and put the pan back into place.
Then I filled the pan with new ATF.....through the dip stick tube.
Now.....starting with a pan full of clean fluid, I removed the tranny fluid cooler line that has the fluid flow BACK INTO the transmission........at the metal line on the transmission.....and directed it into a container.
On my 2003, it is the line that goes into the metal tube that is more to the driver's side.
Then I started the motor and let it idle.....and watched the fluid flow out of the cooler hose.....and when the flow slowed, or got bubbles in it.....I turned the motor OFF.......measured the amount of fluid that came out......and added the same amount of new fluid.
I did the cooler line drain and fill about 3 or 4 times, using about 11 quarts of tranny fluid TOTAL for the pan drop and cooler line exchange.
