Question about 2007 Toyota 4Runner
There is no transmission fluid dipstick!! This model- 2007 4Runner does not have one. It has a fill plug on the side of the transmission itself, near the top. Kind of like what a pumpkin rear end has where you fill it to the top of the plug. Same type of thing. The dealer does not want you messing with the transmission at all. My son accidently drained the Tranny fluid, thinking it was the oil plug. They told me to measure exactly how much was drained, and replace that exact amount of fluid into the fill plug. I had to buy a fluid pump!!! They warned to use only their fluid (Which I found is nothing special) and also to make sure that it was filled with the exact amount.

there is no dipstick it's a sealed unit dealer only.sorry a lot of vehicle manufacturers have went to this sealed style some ford suv's,tacomas,dodge chargers challengers and magnums.just a few off tof of my head.it's one of those BETTER DESIGNS THEY ARE ALWAYS COMING UP WITH TO MAKE YOU BURN UP A 5000 DOLLAR UNIT IN HOPES OF SELLING ANOTHER TRUCK TO REPLACE THE ONE THATS TORN UP.....SORRY oh ya the transfer case has a regular old check plug 28 mm i think don't quote me could be a 30 or 32 also they changed up on those.

SOURCE: transmission fluid change
It differs with use but for a rule of thumb you can look at the fluid on the dipstick against a white cloth and if it brown to black looking not a reddish color you should have it serviced.Either a drain and fill or a complete trans flush if it is black.Your trans will thank you

at 50,000 miles there is really no need. i would wait and save up that money and do a transmission flush 7- 10 quarts of toyota f-type fluid can be costly but a flush removes all of the fluid and garnish along with any fine shavings (normal wear and tear) out of the tranny and replaces it with new clean fluid. normal intervals would be at about 80-100,000 miles. you should be able to find preventative maintenance schedules in your owners manual. if not any repair facility would have it on their computer.
