Checking the ATF level

Correct ATF level is an essential prerequisite for proper operation of the automatic transmission.

Check requirements:

Vehicle must be on a level surface

Engine running at idle

Handbrake pulled

Selector lever set to "N"

ATF temperature approx, 80"C

At 80'C operating temperature, the ATF level must be between the 80'C min. and max. marks.

To determine the precise ATF temperature, use System Tester 9288.

If required, top up with ATF fluid across the quick-fill device.


A = Check range at 80'C ATF temperature B = Quick-fill device
