While holding down the odometer button, turn the key to the on position. Does this mean that a transmission that has either been previously serviced properly or never serviced at all will still use the same fluid without any fluid being changed? If any are low you can add or at least find out were it is going. I just measured the location of the oil filter in relation to the skid plate, cut a hole in the skid plate with a jigsaw large enough to get my hand through file the edges of course to keep from possible cutting our hand and then fashioned a removable cover to go over the hole. My truck is a powerstroke Ford with 167,0000 miles on it. I have a 2010 Tundra Double Cab 5.
This will reset the maintenance light on your dash!!!!!! I was wondering if I should drop the tranny pan and replace the gasket put in new trans fluid and possibly change the filter. That's the part that worries me, I find it hard to believe anything can maintain it's quality over that many miles. You are going on a trip you check your coolant, oil, and automatic transmission fluid level to see where it is at. I was 4 wheeling and stopped behind a polaris, by approximately 5 feet. Have an 03 and the transmission seems to slip when accellerating after going around a curve or slowing at a stop light. Let the dealer do it as all you can do is a drain a flush.
I experienced the same type of problem with my Mazda B4000. On top of low prices, Advance Auto Parts offers 3 different trusted brands of Automatic Transmission Fluid products for the 2006 Toyota Tundra. I e-mailed Toyota Canada and asked them why there was no dip stick. Do not change fluid more than the factory recommends. They told me the fluid did not need to be changed, ever, but when I did the drain and fill, it was disgusting looking. Not even on the random idea list ofwhat might be the pproblem if the shudder problem clears up after the engine warms you might look at having your ignition system plugs, wires etc.
They have not looked at it as yet due to their schedule. Check fron and back to determine correct reading. Put the key into the ignition and press the odometer button. Kinda like not having an integrated towing system from the inside. So you are driving along in the summer maybe with a trailer and all of a sudden your trany craps out off warranty to bad so sad.
Who ever came up with that idea should be shot with a ball of his own shit! I immediately canceled the cruise and drove a mile or so without cruise, then decided to try it again. No matter the situation, Advance Auto Parts has the Automatic Transmission Fluid product you desperately need. She depressed the brakes and the tachometer increased to 2 and would not decline. I checked with a cold engine and transmission. The failure mileage was 20,000 and the current mileage was 53,000. The transmission did not follow suite.

If not, you add fluid with a special hose and fitting until it does. My reply to them was then why even bother with an oil dip stick. The Toyota has major damage to the front end. These particulates can even lead to failure. If nothing there then the basics state.
Believe it or not you can not check the transmission oil on a 2007-2010 Tundra with a 5. Therefore, do not change your fluid any more or less than recommended by the factory maintenance manual. Prior to approaching the hill I canceled the cruise so that the transmission wouldn't hunt gears. Update: Half a year in and the transmission has never run better. There is a very long hill going North to sunset point.
I am using only the toyota ws fluid. For the past few weeks of driving the above referenced vehicle I started to notice a knocking metal sound under the center console when accelerating and braking. Not only is this a major safety hazard, but it could have caused my engine to blow up. John, Good luck with no spot-no problem. All the answers to your maintenance questions are in there. There are many forums online debating and explaining how and why to do this, feel free to check them out.
The contact stated that the vehicle has had three transmissions since purchase. Took this damn lovely-but-stoopid machine to my local mechanic who quickly put her up on his lift and added close to 2 quarts. The contact was driving 30 mph and there was an abnormal increase in engine rpms causing the transmission not to shift correctly. The high idle would also effect the way the vehicle shifted into gear. I have not contacted my insurance as yet as I feel that Toyota is the responsible party for the accident. This is done with the 2009 Service Manual on a 2009 Tundra.
