How do I check my Automatic Transmission Fluid?

How to check your automatic transmission fluid in just a few steps:

  • Warm the transmission fluid to operating temperature by driving 10 minutes
  • Park on a flat level surface with the engine running
  • open the hood
  • remove the transmission fluid dipstick and wipe clean
  • re-insert the dipstick being sure to seat all the way down
  • remove the stick and examine the fluid condition, color, and level
  • check for the fluid to be cherry red and in the center of the crosshatched area, look for signs of glitter like metallic shavings
  • If the fluid is below the cross-hatched are consult your service advisor for the proper fluid
  • If your vehicle is not equipped with a fluid dipstick have one of our mechanics check the fluid level at your next service visit!
