Check of level of ATF of automatic transmission


1. Correctness of level of ATF is one of critical operational parameters of the models equipped with AT. Lowering of level of ATF 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.
2. Check of level of ATF should be made at the transmission warmed up to normal working temperature (16 ÷ 20 km of run, 72 ÷ 80 °C).

It is not necessary to make check of level of ATF right after car operation on high speeds, in the conditions of a city cycle in hot weather, or after trailer towage, - previously let's liquids cool down within about 30 minutes. Park the car on an equal horizontal platform with a firm covering, strongly cock the parking brake. If the engine cold, start it and warm up on single turns. At the working engine squeeze out a pedal of a foot brake and serially carry out the AT selector lever through all provisions, having in summary returned it to the situation "R".

3. Without suppressing the engine, take from a directing tube measuring щуп. Fingers remove from an edge щупа traces of ATF and to the touch estimate its condition.

4. Carefully wipe an edge pure rags and enter щуп back into directing tube, having densely planted a cover on a mouth.

5. Again take щуп from a mouth and by size of the moistened site of an edge determine ATF level in a transmission case. In case of need make the corresponding adjustment, through a funnel having added in transmission liquid of a demanded grade, - fill in ATF directly in a mouth of a directing tube measuring щупа.

6. Lifting of level of ATF from the bottom border of a working range щупа to top needs about 0.6 l of liquid - the flood is made in the small portions in stages, each time checking level.
7. At the same time with level it is necessary to check as well ATF condition. If the liquid moistening the end of an edge щупа has a dark red-brown shade, or smells as ashes, ATF should replace (see. Section Replacement of ATF of automatic transmission and main transfer). In the absence of confidence of correctness of an assessment of a condition of transmission liquid compare it on color and a smell to fresh ATF.
