Transmission install need help !!!

So I am ready to drop my 2010 Yaris automatic transmission I got one from a local used parts supplier with 43000 miles. When I was taking out the torque converter bolts from the access window on the transmission I noticed a orange dot on the flywheel can anyone tell me what this is for? Also how much fluid needs to be in the torque converter when installing and does it need to be lined up in a certain spot on the flywheel. Just trying to be prepared when I do pull the old one. Any key steps that I should know when bolting up the new one? Thanks in advance.

the orange dot could potentially be a heavy spot on the flexplate. I would mark everything with a paint marker and make sure you re install it in the same orientation in case they were balanced at the factory.

I don't know the amount of fluid the TC needs, you could always just measure what comes out of the old one if you are installing a new one. I do know how ever that most people recommend filling it up prior to install as it makes filling the trans quicker and easier

Well the junkyard trans came with a torque converter but maybe I will just mark the old one and just use it rather than the new one. That’s a good idea I will try to retain the fluid and add same amount. I plan on changing the rear main seal. I was gonna ask advice on the trans filter and gasket on the junkyard trans. It only has 43000 on it should I change the filter it has been sitting on a shelf .

I'm not familiar with the process, but I remember seeing an orange dot like that in ChrisFix's video on replacing a transmission (see 13:35). I can't find the spot where he explains what it is, if he does, but the video might be useful.

it's up to you, that isn't high mileage but for piece of mind so you know it's been done you could. It isn't any easier to do with it out of the car so you could always save it for later
