Hi everyone,

Car is a 2012 Corolla auto with a 6.9 qt tran capacity and 2.6 qt tran pan capacity. I am buying OEM ATF WS from ebay and the options I have are either 8, 9 ,10, 12 qt to buy. After draining the tran fluid and replacing screen I will be topping up with 2.6 quarts (or however much comes out) and then doing a cooler line flush 1 qt at a time, I am not sure how long it will take to reach clear liquid which is why I'm not sure how much to buy.

Has anyone done this before with a similar capacity tran and know how much fluid they ended up needing?

Thank you for your help,

Buy 12qt if you are not topping but flushing your trans system to get out the old oil. Flushing usually takes more than 8 qt

don't fret too much about getting every last bit of old fluid out either, I just drop my pan to change the filter and fill the trans without flushing every 60k and the fluid looks quite clean afterward. I've only had my 09 corolla about 1 year so far, but my highlander is doing just fine with this method at over 270,000 miles and no trans issues.

Thank you for the prompt replies. I'm not really sure what I should do, a complete fluid change or drain/refill 3 times over the course of a month. The fluid is dark pink now with a brown tinge so it's not the dirtiest, I just want the most economic and less time consuming method.

Welcome to the site doze.

The best would be to "flush" and put all new fluid in. Dumping and refilling is OK, and if you do that a few times even better. 10 qts is probably enough, and if not good enough for this round. You can repeat that n another 100k miles :)

I called a transmission shop and they were able to tell me how much oil I needed for my 2009 corolla ce auto. I used Amsoil.
