You can't, you just have to hope that your check engine light will come on if your Tranny fluid gets too low.

Where can i find my transmission refill plug /2008 toyota tacoma

Hello. Welcome to FixYa. If you do not have a dipstick visible in the engine compartment, you do not have a refill plug. If you do not have a dipstick, you have what Toyota calls "World-Spec" transmission fluid. Adding fluid to this transmission requires some very sophistocated equipment, and it is not advisable to try this yourself; you could seriously damage the transmission. Leave the ATF issues to the professionals.

or trans will be overfilled. there is a plug on the right end of the trans( 7/16" )& must be removed with engine running, if at proper temp & fluid comes out then trans is full.

If it is a 2.2 Auto it has a VT25E Trans,A really bad experiment from G.M.There is no dipstick.The only way to check it per service is to remove the center part of the main drain plug while running in park,if fluid drains or trickles out they say it's full.You probally have other Issues inside the trans.Check your mileage they have a special coverage period for this Trans through Saturn Dealer!! They May cover it or do a partial coverage for you.Hope this helps

Refill trans fluid KC Laser 05/87

Top up for the auto trans is usally through the dipstic hole as for how much to put in markings are on the the dipstick with markings for hot and cold depending on weather the car has been used or not and check with manfacturer as to what type to put in, as for not going in to gear or changeing gear, it probably needs the auto trans serviced or it could be on its way out.The starting problem could be to do with engine starter itself and it may need replaceing.
