SOURCE: landcruiser auto transmission,,how to check fluid level

when you open your hood look in the back of the motor on the left side.. you should see a stick with a circle on the end of it for your finger have you vehicle running warmed up that means let it run for 10 or 15 min. and then pull the stick out.. wipe it off real good. stick it back in all the way.. pull it back out and hold it horizontally and check it.. it's sometimes hard to read because it has bubbles on it.. try it a couple of times to get an accurate reading good-luck ray

should have an OBDII connection under the dash on the drivers side. Looks like an elongated computer port, probably has a cover on it that says OBDII. You can buy a code reader from an auto store like pepboys for around $100 i think. Just a side note, usually if the car is still driving ok and not acting weird, it is an emissions sensor.

2008 Toyota Tacoma-automatic. Transmission fluid was drained in error thinking it was oil outlet. Where does new transmission fluid go in? Manual does not provide this specific info.


Trans fluid goes in the same tube the transmission dipstick sticks into. You'll need a funnel with a narrow bottom opening (1/2" or less). Make sure you pour it in the transmission dipstick tube, and not the engine oil dipstick tube. ;)
Initially, try to add about 3/4 of the estimated amount that you accidentally drained, then slow fill the remainder while checking level at different stages.
Also, try not to overfill. Check fluid level often, with engine running, in park or neutral, as you re-fill it.

Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

Where is the auto transmisson fluid filter and where do i top it up


Transmission is a sealed unit. The filler plug is on the side of transmission and doubles as alevel plug. The filter is in the sump or oil pan of transmission and is only changed when serviced by someone who knows what they are doing. more to it than just changing the oil and filter and new gasket.

How do i change transmission fluild an filter


Hi J, Clean the whole area around the drain plug and oil pan. Drain the fluid from the drain plug at the lowest point of the gearbox oil pan. When drained into the required receptacle, remove all bolts around the oil pan and drop it. The oil filter is located inside and held in place by fixing bolts. Remove those and replace the filter. This job requires the utmost cleanliness, and no contamination should be allowed to get inside the gearbox. Refit oil pan using a new gasket and refill gearbox to required level. Always check the gearbox level with the engine running, the selector in neutral and the park brake fully engaged. Regards John

At speed, my car sounds like it is an airplane taking off.


Check the transmission fluid, if it is low add to correct level while running. If it smells burnt that's not good. Sounds like a bad transmission. Or check tail pipe to see if someone put a gag sqweeler in pipe. Do not burn your self getting the sqweeler out, it can be very hot.

Do you check the transmission oil level with the engine running with it in Park, or with the engine turned off (after getting the transmission up to normal operating temperature)?


The transmission will have a hot and a cold mark, it is best to run the transmission hot and check the oil level whilst idling in park.

No power backing up driveway


Check the gear box oil level....I'm thinking that you have a auto box....this should be done on level ground and with the engine running at idle speed....To check level correctly place your foot onto the brake hard and also select the parking brake....With the engine running, move the selector lever from park into reverse and then to neutral then to 'D', followed by the lower range gears and then moving up to 'D', and then to neutral again and then to reverse and back to neutral....Leave each position engaged for about one second....Leaving the engine running and the park brake engaged check that the gear box oil is at the correct level....It should be between the marks indicated on the red topped dip stick....When filling with Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) through the same tube where dip stick is located the engine should also be running and care taken not to over fill....Once at the correct level the vehicle should behave normally.

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse


first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.
