STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHECKING YOUR VEHICLE’S TRANSMISSION FLUID
- Park vehicle on a level surface, engage the parking brake and start the engine. Leave the car in neutral or park. Let the engine warm-up and continue to run throughout operation unless the vehicle’s owner’s manual says otherwise. (Be aware that some automatic transmission fluid levels are checked with the engine off. Check owner’s manual.)
- Locate automatic transmission fluid dipstick, typically near where the transmission or transaxle meets rear of the engine. It looks similar to the oil dipstick.
- Remove automatic transmission fluid dipstick. Wipe clean, reinsert fully and remove again. CAUTION: FLUID MAY BE HOT!
- Observe markings at end of dipstick. Your dipstick might have two markings for “full”—one warm, one cold. If the automatic transmission fluid level does not come up to the “warm” line, you’ll need to add automatic transmission fluid.
- Insert the long funnel into automatic transmission fluid dipstick hole. Carefully add automatic transmission fluid in small increments and recheck level each time until the fluid level reaches the “warm” line. CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL OR SPILL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID ON HOT ENGINE PARTS!
- Reinsert automatic transmission fluid dipstick fully. You’re done!
