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

SOURCE: can engine oil leak into transmission on toyota corolla 1989

Sounds like you need to get your transmission serviced as the darkened color is a sign of deteroration. As for oil to somehow make it into the transmission you would need one serious oil leak and the grommet around the tranmission dipstick would have to be pretty much gone for oil to somehow make it into the housing. Needless to say I've never seen it happen.

Check fluid level in transmision engine running or not with plug out


Engine must be running to check the fluid level. Transmission should be hot, not cold. Then remove plug. Add transmission fluid until it comes out of plug hole. If the engine is not running and you remove the plug, you will lose a lot of transmission fluid.

How much tranamission fluid does my 1997 sable hold


If you have your owners manual, there is a section containing the capacities for all fluids. You may also simply check your fluid level, with a running motor and warm transmission. If the stick indicates add, start with a 1/4 quart and work your way up. Unless there is a problem with the trans, there is no real reason to ever add fluid unless your are flushing the transmission.

Start the engine and let run until it reaches operating temp...next, run the transmission shift lever through all gears one by one and then return back to park. With engine running, pull out the transmission dipstick and wipe off. Reinsert the dipstick fully and pull out once more. Check the fluid level.

Where do u put transmission fluid in a bmw 740il 2001


Here is the procedure:

The transmission temperature must be between 86° to 130° F (30° to 55° C) before checking With engine running, switch on AC While holding vehicle with brakes, place transmission into each gear briefly With engine running and transmission in park, remove Fill/Check plug. If a small amount of oil runs out, fluid level is correct. If no oil runs out fluid level is low, add fluid as required through Fill/Check plug hole. When level is correct, reinstall Fill/Check plug and tighten to correct torque.
