Check auto trans fluid level in 2008 Yaris

I have crawled all over the engine in my 2008 Yaris w/auto trans looking for the dip stick to check the auto trans fluid level and can not find one. So conceding defeat I got out the owners manual and look there and after three reads (figuring that I have missed twice) there does not appear to be a Trans dip stick. Even the underhood picture does not show a Trans check icon; so I am at a lose. I can not believe that there is no way to check this with out going to a service facility to have it done.

Thanks much

I don't know how many models this affects, but I had heard that some manufacturers are no longer putting in a dipstick to check automatic transmission fluid. For example, check the "Tips and Warnings" box (lower center of page) at this web site. Your car may be one of those affected. You can check with a Toyota dealer to be sure.

How do I check trans fluid on a 06 750li?I have a dip stick but it doesn't say on dip stick; if I check It with car in neutral or park while engine is running,or do I check it with engine off.


most vehicle auto trans are checked while the engine is running and trans is warmed up to normal operating temp. except hondas which are checked with engine off. pull out the dipstick and the fluid level should be somewhere in between the hash marks. if its low just top off a quarter quart at a time and watch the fluid residue on hash mark on the end of dipstick.

Transmission dip stick keeps popping out


check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles

How do i check the transmission fluid level?


With the engine and transmission at operating temperature, and on a level surface, leave the car run and pull out the dip stick marked "trans". Wipe it clean with a rag and put it back in. Pull it back out and look for the level of fluid on the end of the dip stick. It will be marked where the acceptable level of fluid is.

Were do you put transmission fluid in the transmission?


You have to check the fluid from the bottom on the back side of the transmission with a special tool. So if you don't have a way of getting under the car or have a special tool to do it with then you won't be able to. You also have to fill the fluid using this same hole.

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.


It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
