    The other day I went to a Toyota dealership to get transmission fluid and a tech said that they have to heat the transmission fluid before putting it in to the truck is this true

    The fluid needs to be at operating temperature (180?) before the level can be checked.
    A dealer may opt to pre-heat the fluid to save time.

    The "sealed" trans behind the 4.0 does not have a dipstick. It has a drain plug, fill plug, and a level check plug.
    With the temperature correct, the fluid should be at the level of the "check" plug.
