** New Tundra Owner ** Checking Transmission Fluid Help *
Having owned my 9th generation Corolla since new, I now own a 2004 Tundra SR5. 4.7lt, Automatic.
Don't have a Haynes manual yet, will get one.
I want to check the automatic transmission fluid, and now am a little confused.
Yesterday, I drove it around, and found a spot, parked it, put it in neutral, ran it through the gears, checked the fluid. It was low. I added some to get it into the range near full.
Today when cold I checked it, and its was over the hot mark?
Whats going on?
Haven't driven it yet. since.
Want to be sure I am doing it right.
Please advise on how you normally check the transmission fluid. I have never had an automatic transmission with both a hot and cold mark on the dip stick.
Also, wow. Is this dipstick a pain to get in.
