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

The car needs to be running with the transmission warm, (drive around for at least 10 minutes) Place the car in neutral. Pull the stick wipe it off and place it back in the transmission. Reads just like an oil stick, want fluid in the safe range (checked pattern) area.

SOURCE: Adding automatic transmission fluid to Porsche 928 S4

Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

I have an 89 ford festiva and want to check the transmission fluid level where do i do that


Should be in the left rear section of the engine compartment. Small, yellow, loop, big enough to get your finger in. With a warm engine, pull it out, wipe it off with a clean cloth, reinsert, pull back out to check fluid level.

How to check oil in ford focus gearbox automatic


The recent Ford Automatics do not all have a dipstick. You can remove a sight plug on the side of the Transmission and see if it is full as described in a repair manual, such as Chiltons or Haynes. These can be picked up at your local auto parts store, book store, or WalMart.
The idea is that these new transmissions and fluids are so reliable that you should not need to check it - between major servicing - such as changing the transmission filter and fluid. Depending on the model this should be at least around 50,000 miles.
