Default Transmission and Differential Fluid in 99 Camry

Hello All,

I am wondering if the automatic transmission and differential share the
same fluid specifically for the 1999 Camry. If so, how many quarts do
they hold together and if I drain them both, is it OK to just fill the
transmission and hope that the diffential gets filled also?
I was told that the pre-1995 automatic tranmission Camrys had their
Differential and Transmission fluid in separate cases. You would have to
drain and fill each separately. I heard that most people would forget
about the differential and it would lead to problems down the road. Then
later in the mid-1990 Toyota got smart and connected them. Is this true?

Thanks in advanced.

The transmission and differential do not share the same fluid. The
transmission refill is about 2.2 qts and the differential is about 1.7
qts. The differential must be refilled from under the car using a hand
pump.

Looking at my chart, a 1999 Camry with the 1MZ-FE V6 gets 3.7 quarts
of T-IV fluid total ... because the trans fluid is shared with the
differential.

A 1999 Camry with the 5S-FE four cylinder gets 2.6 quarts of Dexron
III and 1.7 quarts of Dexron III in the differential because the
fluid is NOT shared.

My wife's '93 V6 shares the same Dexron. I believe the 4 cyl did not.
I don't know if that applies to all years.

You don gotta do it from underneath. I bought one of those stupid
squeeze bulb pumps, it wouldn't even prime.
But you can use the tubing with any old funnel, run it down from the top
and pour away. Much faster and quicker.
