Does not have a dipstick tube. Has a plug to check fluid from underneath. Suggest having a shop do it due to special care needed to check and change fluid.
No special tool. Plug can be taken of with ratchet. Just a pain to do. Will list procedure.
Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified.
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
Note: Refer to transmission fluid vent cap removal notice in cautions and notices.
Remove the fluid vent cap.
Caution: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the park range.
Remove the transmission oil level control plug.
Important: The transmission fluid may darken with normal use and does not always indicate contamination or oxidation.
Check the fluid color. If necessary, use a small screwdriver as a dipstick.
