Re: 2004 Automatic Transmission questions
the entire system capacity is 9 qts. the drain and refill procedure removes 2.9 qts. so for a regular service, you need three bottles. be sure the car (engine+trans) is fully warmed up before checking the trans fluid level, otherwise you can seriously damage the trans by having too much fluid, or not enough. all the dipsticks for these models are loose, but they seal well enough. i too have some spray occasionally but i dont think its a problem. it sounds like you checked the trans fluid with the car cold, since you said you also checked the oil. if thats the case, you need to drain that extra fluid immediately before driving. might as well do a drain and fill and add the proper 3 qts.
