Default Demio 2004 automatic gearbox capacity???

Does anybody know how much automatic gearbox oil have to be added after draining oil (not flushing)?
Unfortunately did not measure it when changed oil.
And now after adding less than 1.5 litre it looks as the oil level was correct.
It seems to me not right.
My Demio is 2004 and engine 1.3 petrol.
Would really appreciate any help

I don't know the capacity of that trans, but your owners manual should tell you... usually listed near the back of the manual.
Warm up the fluid and check it again. Chances are you didn't lose that much fluid since much of it is inside the torque converter, and the gearbox itself is rather small.

Unfortunately do not have owners manual as it was imported from Japan.
I drained the oil after driving the car so the oil was warm.
Somebody said 3 quarts (3.4 liter) but that seems too much as I have right level on oil dipstick after adding just 1.4 litre of oil.
Anybody has owners manual for automatic Demio/Mazda2?

You need to have the engine running to check the level.

First start it up in park & check the fluid level, if it looks ok then change it from P to D to N to R to D to N & then park.

**Check the level in park with the engine running.**

Have tried everything. The oil level is the same.
When I changed the oil it was very dark and the oil has been changed after 30k km. It was not that bad before change.

Be sure you are using the absolute correct fluid for the trans. It's not at all like the old says where you had two choices for tanny fluid. These days auto trans's have very specific needs. There are more priority fluids out there than ever before. Be sure to check the SAE/API specs any time you change fluids, and if they don't meet or exceed manufacturer's recommendations, don't use them.
Same goes for power steering fluids.

Other than that, I don't know what to tell you.

I use Castrol Dexron III as was told by Mazda that they are not selling transmission fluids

Weird, they should have their own Genuine oils, plus you should be using Mazda M-V ATF.
