Dry new fill to just draining and filling, as alot of oil stays in the
trans, mine takes maybe 5-6 on a drain. Check hot and running and dont
overfill as most shops do.

5.6 to the power of 12, that's a big number, you sure that wasn't a
footnote 1 or 2 or something?

What does the Haynes manual for the '89 Camry say?

As Ransley said, if 2 numbers are given, the bigger one is likely for
if it's filling a new car with new fluid, and the smaller # is for
drain and fill.

If doing a drain and fill, eyeball approx. how much fluid comes out,
and use that as a starting point for refilling. I get about 2.5 qts
of trans fluid out of my '96 4-banger.

Don't forget the differential, if it's separate from the trans fluid

Have fun

Michael
