    Help!!!!!!!!



    I hope I dont sound to dumb but where in the world do you check the transmission fluid level on this truck. I have a 2008 Crew Max with 5.7. I have looked everywhere and cant find a dipstick anywhere except when I look in the mirror. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    You don't. It is sealed and there is no dipstick to check. Not the greatest idea in my mind, but becoming more common.

    if its at all like my last few trucks theres just 2 bolts (usaly allen wrench) one on the bottem to drian one on the side to fill back up with. you just fill through the side hole tell it over flows then its full. LET me reiderate i havent looked yet on the tundra if its the same but these is the genirc why most transmissons are.

    The transmission does not have a dipstick. If I remember correctly, service is not even recommended until 100k?

    seem to have a problem in opening the pdf file. Get transferred to the login screen, yes indeed, while I am logged in already. The problem I have is that somebody pierced the cooler of the transmission fuel. Had to repair it but offcourse I lost some ATF in the process. Have to bring it back to level again and that is where my real problem starts !!! how, where and how much ???

    Did put my questionn a bit strange indeed. What happened is that I got a leak in the cooler of the transmission oil.Lost some oil there. Got it repaired and lost some more oil removing the cooler and reinstalling it. Now everything is installed back, the engine runs fine as well as the transmission. No indication light burning that the Transmission oil is to hot or anything else. However I know I lost some oil so I guess when I start towing I might run the risk that the transmission does not get cooled well enough. For that reason I wanted to check the ATF level. So my question is how to make sure the ATF level is correct and where to fill it
