[reprot] change AR5 transmission fluid change

Hi guys, I report you my today`s job.
I changed differential oil last week. Then I changed transmission oil today.
At first I had to remove under floor panel. Driver`s side bolts is OK but passenger side bolts was not able to remove alone.



Remove front muffler pipe from catalyst converter.


Remove drain bolt. I hear like a brow off air sound from transmission drain hole.

I guess that inside of atmospheric transmission case are different atmospheric.

???????????



Some guy knows about me, I living in Japan. I ordered this one for GM parts dealer in US. But this gasket was made in Japan. So ridiculous story I imported this parts from US, but this parts export to US from Japan.
I know AR5 export form Japan made by Aishin. It`s cannot be help.

Re-fill plug position was narrow space there. I used plastic pipe.
Then re-fill from engine room.



I found many metal powder in the pan. I decide change oil every 20000 mile.

Hi Gordon,
Great write up and nice photos too.
How much oil did it take to refill the trans?
What type and brand of oil did you use?

Thanks,
John

I am ex-GM sales, I never used another brand fluid.
If possible I want report you shift feel after change oil, but I cannot drive car yet.
Differential drain plug seal can reuse, but trans drain plug seal cannot reuse.

My Transam has AT. But 700-R4 had not drain hole.
So long time ago I changed aftermarket oil pan with drain hole.
It`s can easy fluid change. (of cause I have to remove oil pan when filter remove from valve body)
I never seem SKY AT yet. If you change your AT fluid next time, Please up your pics in this site.

Great writeup Gordon.

Try to keep your license for a while this time around. I know our cars make that hard.

Yes, you so correct. Over 70% cases were false charge in Japan. Me too.
It is too much strangeness that nobody do not grievance to organization of law system. Just anger.
We are fighting with the police about the traffic clamp down system.
I hear one US rumor. “Majority rule”. If this rumor is existent in US, it`s owelty system I think.
At least Police does not care about traffic safety, they only want get money from citizen people.

That sucks. Kudos to you for sticking up for yourself!!!

Alot of that is B.S. here too.
Tickets in the US are a source of income for the Police budget.
They really don't care about the safety either. That is simply the justification they use.

Ya! I will be my best!
By the way, " Tickets in the US are a source of income for the Police budget"
That`s mean tickets is make change personal income for police right?
In Japan case, It`s not personal police income, government gather this fine and this money through to individual company. this company worker are all ex police.
That` company is "descent from heaven" company.

That sounds kind of shady.

In the US alot of local police departments have very limited and small budgets, so the tickets help pay for their costs including the salaries of the Police.

Is it true that in Japan, if you are going faster than a certain speed the cops will not chase you because their cars are not fast enough?

I would make a suggestion here - maybe you can modify the original how-to - ALWAYS check and remove the FILL plug FIRST (BEFORE draining your oil).

Nothing worse than having an empty transmission and a rounded-off fill plug (don't ask me how I know).
