Dipstick removal from transmission pan

I'm right at the point to drop the pan from the automatic transmission in a 94 toyota 4Runner. But I'm not sure how to remove the dipstick tube that goes into the the pan itself? Don't want to create additional problems.

The dipstick should be held in with a rubber boot and will pull out

I need to find the transmission dipstick in a 2011 Kia Sportage


The transmission dipstick will be closer to the firlewall on most vehicles It may have a handle with a picture of a transmission on it. You'll need to find the transmission drain plug if there is one. Some models you need to drop the transmission pan some you have to drop the oil pan before you can drop the transmission pan. Many you have to remove brackets and or exhaust parts before you can remove the other pans. See Tutorial

I have a 2007 toyota 4runner V6. I can't find the transmission fluid dipstick


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.

Change the transmission filter in a 1992 toyota 4runner?


Sounds to me like you transmission needs replacing. Slipping happens when the teeth on the gears are worn out.

I I have lost drive & third gear in my 94 cutlass supreme 3.1 I was wondering what should I do


Well, problems with automatics are why there are so many auto transmission shops. There are hardly any shadetree mechanics and not that many ASE-certified mechanics who feel confident enough and knowledgeable enough to tear down and rebuild an automatic. And, very likely, that's what your ****** requires. One question: how long has it been out, and are you familiar with how a transmission starts to "slip" in the gears before it goes entirely? If it just started, you might want to try a fluid and filter change(drop your transmission pan, drain fluid, change filters{its right there after dropping pan}, new pan gasket, and re-install pan). Really about all the average person can do is checking the fluid to make sure it's full in an automatic. Any problems usually require a trip to a shop.

How do you chang the transmission fluid on the 2003 4runner (v8)


Jack you vehicle up and put it on jackstands. Loosen the dipstick tube collar and let the fluid drain into a container. Next take the transmission pan bolts out and remove the pan from the transmission making sure you don't spill the remaining fluid. Next clean the gasket surfaces on the transmission and pan very carefully removing all residue and glue with a solvent and then air dry. Be sure to clean the bottom of the pan thoroughly. Remove the filter from the mount inside the transmission. Now you are ready to install the O-ring and a new filter tightening the bolts securely. Next install the gasket and the pan to the transmission and be sure to torque the bolts with a torque wrench to specifications. Install the dipstick tube and tighten the collar. Lower the vehicle and add the fluid through the filler tube, don't overfill please. Now with the transmission in park and the parking brake set, run the engine at fast idle, but not too fast. Move the gear selector through each range and back to park. Check the fluid level and check for leaks. Now You Are Finished and Ready to Go.
