Very well explain and done Eric, one of the very best I have ever seen !
2ndly: I am from the Gold Coast, aprrox 50klms south of Brisbane in Australia, age mid 50's, been playing with cars, bike ect since I 1st pulled a starter motor out of a forklift at age 14.
Just a back yard mech when maintenance and repairs to own vehicles are needed, also on occasions repairs and trouble shooting for friends and acquaintances !
3rdly: I am currently Swapping out my 2000 model Toyo Camry 5S-FE 2.2 auto Engine for another I had rebuilt by a local engineers

Lastly : I do have a question about the Torgue Converter & I will post this question later - but for now, I would like to say Thanx for letting me here, & I look forward to browsing the forum more when time allows.

Ok, Question/s Re: Torgue Converters, Here Goes- 1stly it seems common knowledge that when changing Auto-trans oil, that the oil in the torgue converter does not drain out - I assume this is true and stand to be corrected please.
2nd - Does any trans oil transfer from the auto box to the converter whilst driving, asking because I can-not see anyway that it can ?
So, if the converter oil stays in the converter than I assume the oil would eventually wear down and/or loose its consistency and/or its properties over-time. should I change the converter oil whilst I have the engine out &, I assume it would be best; if so, I should fill converter to the top and try not to loose any on refitting it ?

So, basically, does any oil transfer from the auto box to the converter while driving and should I change it ?
Cheers in advance !
