The proper amount of automatic transmission fluid is essential to the life and operation of the automatic transmission. Either insufficient fluid or excessive fluid could cause transmission trouble. The transmission fluid filler port cap is equipped with a dipstick. Use the following procedure to check the fluid level.

1. Check the fluid level after the vehicle has been driven enough to warm up the transmission fluid.
2. Park the vehicle on a flat, level surface and apply the parking brake.
3. With the engine idling and the brake pedal fully depressed, move the transmission selector lever through all the positions from the ”P” (PARK) to ”L” (LOW) (with INVECS–II 4A/T), the ”P” (PARK) to ”D” (DRIVE) (with INVECS– II Sports Mode 4A/T), stopping momentarily at each position.
4. Move the selector lever to the ”N” (NEUTRAL) or ”P” (PARK) position.
5. Remove the dipstick and wipe it with a clean lint–free cloth.
6. Reinsert the dipstick as far as it goes.
7. Remove the dipstick and read the oil level. The fluid level should always be between the two marks on the dipstick.
8. Use only the following transmission fluid to ensure optimum transmission performance: ”DIA QUEEN ATF SP III”.

WARNING

Do not spill the fluid onto a hot exhaust manifold during topping up or inspection, or a fire may occur.
