hello
somebody knows why in the jimny manual page 8--9 (407 from the pdf) it says that jimny atf oil tranmission capacity is 5.7 L?
Automatic transmission oil “SUZUKI ATF 3317” 5.7 L (10.0 Imp pt)
my jimny is automatic and it only takes 2 liters, its a ivory jimny like the green one in the photo at the top, is there somewhere else you gotta flush?
Regards

How did you arrive at it only takes 2 liters? Most automatic transmissions take a lot more than that, and more than 5.7 liters to be honest, but the Jimny is a small vehicle, so 5.7 liters is possible.

If 2 liters is what you were able to drain out of it, what you need to be aware is that with a torque converter, planetary gear automatic, which is what the Jimny has, you will never drain all the fluid out, a significant amount will remain in the torque converter, the valve body and the cooler circuit.

i just drained the pan that was down and then added the atf in the same place where you measure with the dipstick, it only drained 2 and a half liters, the manual says 5.7L but i dont know where else is that kept, do you have to flush somewhere else?

Where are you getting this information from? Why are you attempting to replace the fluid in a vehicle that is less than three years old?

because all oils get dirty and it already has 60000km, also i want to keep it clean, why would i want the transmission to get bad, i also gear some grinding on low gears when is going uphill that i dont like

About 3 to 5 litres in the valve chest, transmission clutches and the majority in the torque converter.
My car holds 8 litres, I get about 2,2 out if it from the pan drain plug.
Refer to your service schedule in the owners handbook, 100,000 kns would be when I was even starting to think about a change of oil.

I would be surprised if there wasn't. I don't know of any automatic transmission that doesn't have cooler lines to a heat exchanger in the radiator, or to an external cooler.

The fact you are asking that question does concern me.
