Check of level of ATF



1. Make on the car a short trip, having warmed up transmission to normal working temperature. Be parked on an equal horizontal platform, whenever possible with a firm covering. Check of level of transmission liquid is made by means of special measuring щупа, the impellent compartment located in a forward part, directly ahead of the engine block. The handle top щупа for simplification of searches is usually painted in bright color.

2. Leave the engine working at single turns and transfer the AT selector lever to the situation "R". Take щуп from a directing tube and dry wipe its edge pure rags or a paper towel. Fill щуп back, having planted it in a tube against the stop, then again take. By size of the moistened site of an edge determine ATF level, - it should be between the top and bottom marks щупа.

3. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, having added demanded amount of liquid through directing tube щупа. For convenience use a funnel.

Watch, that level of ATF did not rise above the top mark.

4. Having finished adjustment, make on the car a short trip for the purpose of ATF distribution on surfaces of internal components of transmission, then repeat level check. In case of need add missing amount of liquid.
5. Watch, that liquid level constantly was in transmission between the bottom and top marks in an edge measuring щупа. Remember that the lack of ATF can lead to serious internal damages of transmission.
6. Need of frequent performance of correction of level of ATF testifies to development of the leaks which source should be immediately revealed, and the reason is eliminated.
