Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and
trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid
level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed.
Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid
pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks
and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.
DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION
Park the vehicle on a level
Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area
around the dipstick.
With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking
brake applied, start the engine.
The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid
should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C
Move the selector lever to every position to fill the
torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the
"N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is
Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on
the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level
reaches the "HOT" range.
