Question about 2002 Toyota Land Cruiser
Automatic transmission is a very complicated device and its repair is costly. Most automatic transmissions must be checked with the engine running and warmed up. Also, make sure the car is on a level surface and fully warmed up.
If you not sure how to check the automatic transmission fluid, here is a step-by-step explanation:
Begin by letting the engine idle with the parking brake engaged and your foot on the brake.
Move the gear selector through each gear. This ensures that the fluid is circulating through the pumps, thereby providing you with an accurate reading.
Once you have done this, put the vehicle in park, but leave the brake engaged and the engine running.
The transmission dipstick is located near the rear of the engine. Pull the transmission dipstick out, wipe it clean with a rag, and note the markings on the end of the stick. The usual markings are “FULL” and “ADD 1 PINT”. Inset the dipstick fully and remove it again to take a reading.
If the engine is cool, it should be at the upper end of the “COLD” mark.
