Default Camry Automatic Transaxle - how much fluid??

The owner's manual says about 2.5 quarts for a drain and refill. However, I am
told that the transmission actually holds much more fluid. Most remains in
the transmission when the drainplug is removed. Is this correct?

If the your transmission holds at total of approximately 7 qts,
(minus the 2.5 you drained) the remaining AFT is in the torque
converter, oil pump, clutch packs, band servo, and accumulator
chambers. To get more out of the transmission, let the car sit for
several hours before draining. This can make the difference of
nearly an additional quart.

True. Also the case for coolant.
