2003 Prerunner Xcab V6
Getting ready to do a drain and fill on the truck. Bought 4 quarts type T-IV from dealership. Couple questions I've tried to find answer for.
1) Coloring. Take a look at attached pic. Left is new, right my current fluid, am I OK?
2) Dipstick level. When cold, truck hasn't been started in hours or overnight, fluid level on dipstick is well past HOT level, fairly high on stick. After 15 run, in park and/or neutral, idling nice, level is just above COLD. This all seem normal? What is proper way to check level? High level when cold didn't seem right...
3) When draining, do I need to lift the front end at all to get more fluid out?
Appreciate your help as always.
