Check of the ATF AT level

(each 4800 km [3000 miles] of run or time in three months)

Correctness of the ATF level is one of critical operational parameters of the models equipped with AT. Lowering of the ATF level can lead to pro-slipping of the converter of rotation whereas the excessive amount of liquid conducts to its foaming, to formation of leaks and is fraught with a transmission exit out of operation.

Check of the ATF level has to be made on the car parked on an equal horizontal platform with minute switching off of the engine.


1. Take the measuring probe located in forward part of a case of transmission near the right partition of a motive compartment on 4-cylinder models or in the left part of a compartment on the V6 models. The probe is equipped with the ring-shaped handle painted in brightly yellow color. Fingers remove traces of ATF from a probe edge and to the touch estimate its condition.
2. Carefully wipe an edge pure rags and enter the probe back into the directing tube, having densely put a cover on a mouth.

3. Again take the probe from a mouth and determine the ATF level in a transmission case by the size of the moistened site of an edge. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, through a funnel having added liquid of the demanded grade to transmission. On 4-cylinder models fill in liquid directly in a mouth of the directing tube of the measuring probe. On the V6 models it is provided a separate jellied opening from which it is necessary to turn out a stopper previously.

4. Rise in the ATF level from the lower bound of working range of the probe to top requires about 0.6 l of liquid - the flood is made in the small portions in stages, every time checking level.
5. Along with level it is necessary to check as well a condition of ATF. If the liquid moistening the end of an edge of the probe has a dark red-brown shade, or smells as ashes, ATF should be replaced (see the Section Service of the Cooling System (depletion, washing and filling)). At absence of confidence in correctness of an assessment of a condition of transmission liquid compare it on color and a smell to fresh ATF.
