The owners manual that came with the car will tell you that information

It does not have a drain plug, when the pan is unbolted the fluid will run out. It should take 5 quarts plus or minus 1 quart. Put in 3 quarts and check the dip stick then ad 1 pint ( 1/2 quart ) until the full mark checking every 1 pint.

some later model Hyundai's have filters.. spin ons.. this model from underneath pull the kick panel on the drivers side towards the tire. feel around for a plug (3/8 female) stick a 3/8 drive breaker bar in it and hit it towards the left. once the plug is loose slowly back it out.. the fluid will spray on the kick panel.. you can try and drain it into a container for measurement. or start with about 1 and 3/4 qts. USE HYUNDAI ATF or additive. retighten plug, not to hard the alum. trans case will crack! start car and take thru gears for a about a minute or so.. check fluid level in neutral. e-break on.. it should not take any more than 3qts., can't remember the exact quantity!

The transmission filter is located under the transmission on a 2002 Hyundai Sonata. it is under the transmission drain pan.

The filter is inside the transmission and is not to be serviced. Just drain fluid and replace.

There is a plug on the bottom of the transmission to drain it. You will need to heat up the fluid before you drain it. Be very carefull of the hot fluid.

There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the radiator, I believe the plug is white.

The transmission on a 2002 Hyundai will have a drain bolt located underneath it. Loosen the bolt and drain the old fluid into a pan. Once done use Hyundai recommended transmission fluid and pour it in.

Fluid capacity depends on the transmission on your vehicle, it should be stamped on the transmission pan. 4L60-E Automatic Transmission Drain and Refill 4.7 Liters (5.0 Quarts) Overhaul 10.6 Liters (11.0 Quarts)4L80-E Automatic Transmission Drain and Refill 7.3 Liters (7.7 Quarts) Overhaul 12.8 Liters (13.5 Quarts)

SP-III This is the only fluid compatible with Hyundai/Kia and Mitsubishi transmissions. It is only available at their dealerships and will cost about $6 a quart. The good news is you only need 3-4 quarts to drain and refill the transmission which you should do about every 30k.

User Avatar

the capacity of the 2004r is 3.5 quarts for drain and refill, and 11.0 quarts dry.

User Avatar

holds 3 quarts if you only drain the pan and 8 quarts if you drain the tourque converter too!

The Dakota 4.7 take ATF +4 fluid, not Dexron or Mercon. The capacity for a 45RFE transmission is 14 quarts after a complete drain. Otherwise, it is 10 quarts for a complete drain, or 4 quarts for a filter replacement.

Drain and fill is 5 quarts. Dont know the total of the whole transmission.

The number in your user manual (14 quarts for 40R70W) transmission is for the transmission and torque converter If you just drain the pan and replace the filter it takes 4-5 quarts to fill back up.

An automatic transmission on Ford Ranger holds three quarts of transmission fluid. That is after you drain all the old transmission fluid out.

Per my local Hyundai Shop this model does not have a serviceable filter, therefore you only drain and fill this transsmission.
