Default Differential Refill

I can't find any filler plug on my 2000 Camry V-6 A/T differential. My
Haynes manual shows one and it says that the diff. unit is separate and must
be individually filled. I am hesitant to drain the unit if I cannot find the
way to refill it! I did my '98 Camry 4-Cyl. differential last year and the
filler was easy to find on that unit. I have looked with lights and mirrors
and there simply is NO filler plug on this diff. in my 2000 V-6. What's the
deal. Will it fill from the A/T unit?
Thanks

You can refill the transmission through the transmission dipstick tube.
Start with 2 quarts then shift through the gears, allowing atleast 5
seconds per gear. Then put it back in park and check the dipstick. Only
fill to the cold line. Then drive the vehicle around for a good 15
minutes and check the transmission again. Add to the hot if necessary.
Be carefull to not overfill.

hope that was helpfull

There is no filler plug on the differential, it fills from the A/T
dipstick tube.

Make sure you're looking at the same year and engine as yours.
Don't think your '00 V-6 has a separate differential oil reservoir,
although the earlier 4 cyl. models did.

Thanks to all:
Indeed, there is no separate filler on the differential unit on the '00
V-6 Camry. Everything filled fine through the dipstick tube. The Haynes
manual was just plain wrong.

Thanks again

Dick
