    28-34 PSI, they run great on the long haul like all modern cars. The dip stick is near the trans, you will see it, also some german cars have a tube but no dip stick.

For the automatic transmission to check the oil you need a VAG come or scanner. Oil must be cold like not driven all day and a special filling device from VW. Not a do it yourself procedure. Sorry.

Where is the tire sensor reset button on a 2008 Toyota Avalon


Firestone Hmmmmmm. Well the reset button is located just under the dash to the left of the steering column, hold for a few seconds and the light should go out. Hopefuly the firestone tech won't tell you your brakes need greasing the next time you go in for service, haha. Oh, I do beleive your tire pressure should be 29 psi. But, you can check your owners manual for correct pressures. It sould also tell you where the reset button is also. That should FixYa good luck.

No Dip Stick for trans fluid on 98 Kia Sephia!


The transmission fluid needs to be replaced and checked at a transmission shop or the dealer. In the manual is the information you need to when the transmission is due for service to keep your car running 100% and to keep the warranty valid. Good luck and hope this helps.

Tire pressure sensor fault goes on while driving


Tire pressure always changes...
when you drive your vehicle for a long period of time the tires' temperature goes up along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get excited (hot)
when your vehicle is immobile for a while your tires' temperature goes down along with the
pressure in your tires, the molecules in the air inside your tires get compacted (cold)
This is the best time to get a true PSI reading from your tires....
the recommended tire pressure on most tires should be set at 35PSI
But there might be a problem with your sensors, I work with TOYOTA their sensors are set up to
where when the PSI on your tires drops below the 35PSI, the tire pressure light would then
come on.
You should also check if your spare tire comes equipped with pressure sensors, which in most cases
they do, depending on the type of tire the PSI on spare tires will usually range from 35PSI- 80PSI
you can check your owners manual for this, or simply read the recommended PSI written on the
tire.

Have 08 tahoe dont know how to reset sensor


I assume you want to know the correct tire pressure. Look both under the fuel fill lid and on the drivers door jamb for the sticker that tells you this data. Order an owners manuel for the car as there is a lot of info you might be interested in

Unknown warning light


I suspect this is a low tire indicator, mine drove me nuts when I didn't know what it was till a buddy of mine told me. (my tires did not even look low to me). I would be willing to bet that the company that did your oil change was nice enough to put some air in your tires. Doing so, your light went off for a bit, but the slow leak is now getting low again and you will need to get it patched/plugged/repaired or filled with air again to get the indicator to go back out.

Toyota Prius 2008 - Transmission or or fluid?


Here is the answer that you are looking for: Never.
The auto trans fluid in a Prius is what we call "World Spec", and never needs to be changed. Why? Because the Prius trans fluid is not used for hydraulic pressure or cooling the ATF fluid due to the lack of the aforementioned hydraulic pressure. All that the ATF does is perform a "lubrication" function. As long as there is no contamination of the fluid (such as being in a flood), do not bother with it.
