One way of determining whether the transaxle should be disassembled is by noting:

ATF Condition


Automatic Transaxle Fluid (ATF) Level Inspection

Caution

1. Park the vehicle on level ground.

2. Apply the parking brake and position wheel chocks securely to prevent the vehicle from rolling.

3. Adjust the length or thermistor probe to measure the same depth as the depth gauge and hold the probe with a paper holder. Insert into the filler tube and measure the temperature.


4. Warm up the engine until the ATF reaches 60-70 °C {140-158 ° F}.

5. Shift the selector lever and pause momentarily in each range (DL) while depressing the brake pedal.

6. Shift the selector lever to P position.

7. Verify that the ATF level is in the HOT range (65 °C{149 °F}) while the engine is idling.
