Fluid Level Checking Procedure
The following procedure for checking oil level on automatic transmission 5HP30 (AZS 560Z) must be followed carefully to ensure proper functioning of the transmission.
The vehicle must be without load and standing on a flat, level surface.
With the engine running switch on the low beam headlights or the air conditioning. This will increase the idle speed and ensure that the transmission’s oil pump supplies a sufficient volume of oil to reliably maintain all oil passages filled with oil.
The transmission temperature must be between 20°C and 30°C before the checking procedure. Use the service tester of MoDiC to determine the transmission oil temperature.
Step on brake firmly, apply parking brake fully and move the gear selector lever several times in succession through each gear position, pausing briefly in each gear.
With the engine running and the selector lever in PARK or NEUTRAL position, remove the filler plug located at the bottom of the oil sump. Note that some oil will always be trapped above the plug and run out when the plug is removed: this is not an indication of proper filling or overfilling.
Add the specified oil until it starts to overflow.
With the engine running, re-install oil filler plug (torque 100N-m).
