Default Total ATF capacity of 99 Camry Auto Trans with converter

Anyone know how much ATF is inside a 99 Camry with the 4 cylinder
engine? Total ATF capacity, including the torque converter?

I know the pan holds about 2.6 quarts, but am curious about the total
cap.

I have not been able to find a definitive answer on the 'net.

Total capacity is about 6.7 qts.

Thank you - I had heard 13 quarts but that didn't sound right. So 3-4
pain drains & subsequent refills should basically result in new fluid.
(I am trying to do a fluid exchange to convert to synthetic ATF)

13 quarts? In a front wheel drive Toyota? No. (LOL). I seem to recall the
old cast iron GM Hydramatic, Ford C6's, and TorqueFlite 727's being up
around 11-13 qts on a dry rebuild. The goal you have in mind will never be
accomplished completely due to dilution. Pull the drain plug after the
trans has sat for at least 6 hrs. You'll get more out because the torque
converter has drained down to the input shaft thru the oil pump. This takes
time. Refill and drive around for a few miles, repeat .... after 6+ hrs
sitting. That's enough dilution to achieve a cost effective switch to your
new synthetic.

Thanks for the tips. I figure without a fluid exchange, I am always
going to have to contend with some dilution. I can deal with that as
most the fluid will be synthetic.

I have read of people making their own homemade fulid exchange
devices, and wonder if it's even worth considering... as I watched the
last fluid exchange, I know which line is the output coming from the
pump going to the cooler in the radiator... it wouldn't be too hard to
craft some sort of tubing and reservior setup to replace fluid as it's
being drained while the car is running.

Yet the idea of draining and refilling with a dilution factor seems
easiest and would probably be adequate for all intents and purposes.
