Where do I check or add transmissionfluid on my 2005 toyota 4 runner sr5 v8

There are two plugs on the drain pan. One drains it, the other is the overflow tube. Take the overflow tube plug out (usually the one in the middle of the pan) and pump Toyota Transmission fluid in, the extra will drain back out.

Don't use the wrong fluid, do it with it warmed up, and if it only has one plug in the transmission pan I was wrong and don't drain it by pulling the only plug out.

Where is the tranmission dipstick on 2006 v8 4 runner

There isn't one. The transmission is a sealed unit. The fluid should be replaced every 5 years, 100,000 Kms (72,000 mi.?) More if towing. Toyota WS fluid only.

Transmission engages but does not drive and makes a whineing noise when in park

Toyota 4 Runner has either auto transmission or manual transmission. If it is auto trans, it could be due to the following reasons:
1.Wrong grading and classification of transmission oil. (ATF Dexron II).
2. Clogged transmission filter. (Clean or replace)
3. Worn out clutch friction discs and pressure plates. (replace)
4. Broken fly wheel and/or torque converter. (replace)
5. Check transmission control knobs and switches for if they are at their actual position where they are supposed to be.

2004 Toyota 4 runner: I tried to drain my oil, but I think I drained my transmission fluid. I drained approx 3 quarts of a reddish dark pink color fluid behind the transmission case with the transmission...

If it was a red colored fluid it was transmission fluid. You need to check that on level ground with the motor running to be sure you get the level correct. Normally you have to pull all of the Pan bolts to drain this but every so often Toyota puts a drain plug on the transmission. Make sure you haven't over filled that.
The engine drain is at the rear of the motor on the bottom. On a side ways mounted engine that is the side toward the firewall and will be a black or brownish color.

I just purchased a used toyota 4 runner,1998, the transmission only engage reverse and not drive

I think you know you need a transmission, the only check that you can do is FLUID check f its to low the truck wont move, check for transmission codes, if oe of the codes is for line pressure solenoid that could be the entire problem, one more thing take a look at the radiator coolant if the color is like a pink shake the radiator is damage mixing coolant and transmission fluid.

My overdrive lightis flashing on my 1991 toyota 4 runner.

means it's going out or the transmission oil will need to be changed, check the transmission fluid if it is brown and smells likes onions have the fluid changed and the filter, this may not fix it but you may get lucky, if it's the band or clutch assembly you will have to rebuild transmission.

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.
