Where can i check my transmission oil?
when i changed the motor oil the guy told me that i have to go to main dealer to change the tranmission oil because it was very hard and complicated to check.
I had the same problem, but it can be changed. I had to go to a Valvoline that had a special machince to change it out. Saved a lot of money. Dealership cost $199.99 / Valvoline cost $115.99 (before tax). Just call around some place has a michine that can do it.

You don't yourself. The lube change shop or garage can do this (requires special tools or removal of the pan). for a 2005 you're likely in need of a flush. some models can have a dipstick installed, but its not necessary. Unless you have a serious leak of fluid or shifting issues, it's rare to lose fluid. If you are having issues, then start with a flush and inspection BY A REPUTABLE GARAGE. do not use a dealer or transmission shop, they will always find ways to seprate you from your $$$

Your lifters have become clogged over the years. Its only after the oil warms up and thins out does it allow oil to "pump up" the lifters. That's why it goes quiet after 5 min. There are several different brands of additives on the market that can fix this problem ,unless you have a more serious mechanical problem, which I doubt.Check your local auto parts store for the additive. Just add it to your oil and "wham!" problem solved. Good Luck!
