Yeah 2009 has 3 drain plugs.
you should at least have 7L-7.5L.
5-6L seems low.

How does it shift? if you're having jerky shifting add more fluid.
small amount at a time you should be able see the fill point so check & use caution when topping off the fluid.

not enough fluid. try topping it off, small amount at a time so you dont over fill. you may just need 1L more.

How did you measure the fluid?

did you remove the filter & drain too?

ok, fill the sstf look straight down fill until you see reflection from the fluid.
Should just be around approx. 1L more

5-6L just doesnt sound right.

was your drain plug loose like mine?

Still on stock SST coolers right?

are you sure you only have two drain plugs?

I had 8.5L when I did mine with upgrade coolers.
I recently topped it off with 1L more it shifts much smoother.

CAUTION: remember small amount at a time & check again.
*Torque wrench all fill & drain plugs to 19lbs spec.*

Lmk what happens & how it turn out.

ON-VEHICLE SERVICE

TRANSMISSION OIL LEVEL CHECK


1.After cleaning the outer surface of transaxle, visually check that there is no oil oozing or oil leaking from the transaxle.

2.If an oil oozing or leaking is present, replace the transaxle assembly.
TRANSMISSION OIL CHANGE

1.Remove the engine compartment under cover front B assembly. (Refer to GROUP 51 − Under Cover P.51-16.)


2.Remove the oil drain plug to drain the oil.

NOTE:

Because the oil in the oil cooler and oil filter cannot be drained, the amount of drained oil will be approximately 5.5 dm3.

3.Tighten the oil drain plug to the specified torque.

Tightening torque: 25 N⋅m (19 ft-lb)

4.Remove the air cleaner element, air cleaner intake duct, and air cleaner body. (Refer to GROUP 15 − Air Cleaner P.15-10.)

5.Remove the oil filler plug, then fill the oil.

Brand name: Mitsubishi genuine Dia-Queen SSTF-I

Filling amount: Approximately 5.5 dm3 (approximately 5.8 quarts)

6.Tighten the oil filler plug to the specified torque.

Tightening torque: 25 N⋅m (19 ft-lb)



7.Install the air cleaner element, air cleaner intake duct, and air cleaner body. (Refer to GROUP 15 − Air Cleaner P.15-10.)

8.Start the engine, then let it idle for 1 to 2 minutes.

9.Move the shift lever to every position, and then move it to the P or N range.

10.Stop the engine, then perform Steps 2 to 5 again.

11.Check the oil level and oil fouling. (Refer to P.22C-328.) If fouling is found, repeat Steps 2 to 5 until the fouling is eliminated.

12.Install the engine compartment under cover front B assembly. (Refer to GROUP 51 − Under Cover P.51-16.)

NOTE: 5.8 quart per instruction is 5.488847 Liters. Which is low..
I drained 7L out of my SST. So instruction is confusing...
I filled my sst coolers & lines before I fill the sst, to see how much I needed.
I was worried about over fill so I didnt fill more than 8.5L.
Recently topped off the sstf with 1L more didnt have over fill issues.
Shift is much smoother.

Im curious to see how many RA with low fluid level having SST slip.
How many 2010 have changed their fluid??
How many of you had less then 6L???

im wondering if all 2010's have 2 drain plugs or do some have 3 ? and if the fluid level is different? maybe the low fluid is causing the clutch slip?
