I own a 2000 Camry xle v6 and I just got my transmission fluid and filter replaced about 1000 miles ago. I’m wondering if the fluid pictures I have taken seem to dark already. A541E transmission
Yeah. It does.
Pan drop/filter change?
That’s considerably darker than what comes out of my Ford C4 transmission during a service. But it doesn’t look fatal either. Next time change the fluid a little sooner is all.
It was a pan drop/fluid change
That only removed about 30% of the old transmission fluid.
The new transmission fluid got contaminated with old transmission fluid.
You can keep doing pan drops until the transmission fluid stays clean?
Or, get it over with one fluid flush?
