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.

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

SOURCE: 2007 Toyota 4 runner transmission filter and fluid change??

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.

How to change transmission fluild on a toyota 2007 4runner


Remove the trans pan,clean,replace filter if you want too,
& refill

I do not suggest you try & flush todays electronic trans

Not what you hear, but your better to warm it up or drive a day
or more & change again, if your a perfectionist like me

I will tell you personally & having owned a trans shop, if you
don't change the fluid in the trans, as well as power steering,
every 3 years ,you will have major expensive repairs down
the road.

Is there a manual transmission dipstick on 97 4Runner?


there is no dipstick there is plugs in the side of the transmission. if you have a 3/8 ratchet you can remove the higher plug 4" above the bottom of the transmission. stick you finger in the hole to see if you can reach down and get oil on your finger. if you dont have any tools I would be heading to a quuick lube shop and getting the transmission levels checked and topped up if needed. mike

Checking auto transmission fluid


You are not "dumb".
You can't find it because it does not have one. The trans has WS (World Spec) fluid, no need to check it unless there is an obvious leak. Also, ATF changes are no longer performed with WS fluid as frequently as we do with Dexron ATF.
