    As the 2d generation Tocoma's had no dip stick to check the transmission fluid. how do you check the fluid? And do you really ever have to change it?

    No dipstick, and yes it the Toyota ATF long life fluid(WS) and needs only replaced every 100,000 miles. Toyota, evidently felt no need to include a dipstick due to the fact the fluid goes 100K before requiring a change and the likelihood of a leak is remote. I'm sure it a cost saving measure. To check the fluid you have to remove the fill bolt and physically feel with a finger the level... should be near the top of the fill bolt.

    make sure your engine is running when you check it or it will come flowing out of that bolt. with the engine running there is some atf fluid in the pump of the tranny and it puts the fluid at the proper level if you check with out the engine running be ready for a mess and getting more tranny fluid
