(Refer to Automatic Transaxle Control System - "Inhibitor Switch")

2.

Add 0.7 liters of ATF SP-IV through the ATF filler hole after removing the eyebolt (A).

3.

Start the engine to warm up the ATF.

  

Do not step on the brake and accelerator simultaneously to warm up the ATF.

4.

Check by using KDS that the temperature of the ATF is between 50°C and 60°C (122 - 140°F).

5.

Move the shift lever slowly from "P" to "D", then back to "P". Repeat this sequence two times and then move the shift lever to "P" range.

Normal: ATF flows out in a thin oil stream.

Excessive (abnormal): Over 0.9 liters of ATF flows out for 2 minutes.

Insufficient (abnormal): There is no fluid flow.
