    Does Anyone know where is Transmission oil stick on new Tacoma Engine? I only see Oil stick only. How do you check Transmission oil? I don't see it on Owner manual.

    Thanks

    I was wondering the exact same thing too. Thought Toyota forgot to put the dipstick on my truck! :bananadead:

    I swear, I spent at least a half hour looking in the engine compartment for that damn dipstick! lol

    People who don't know better shouldn't be allowed to buy a Tacoma.

    Those people help make the Tacoma one of the best selling trucks on the market. They also help keep Toyota's profit margins up. This also means we'll be getting a third generation of this truck.

    Praise to the people that don't know better I say!

    I do agree a little... But they also put warnings on blower dryers that say don't use in the shower. Do you think the person who used it in the shower could read?.... Toyota was probably just saving themselves the trouble. lol :D
