    where in hell is refill plug on 07 tundra 6 speed automatic transmission

      I just did a service on an 07 6 speed 4wd. The refill plug is on the front driver side of the transmission right next to the diff. You’ll need a 15/16 wrench to loosen the plug and you’ll have plenty of room to move the wrench. The one issue I found is actually doing a flush. All I could do was a drain and fill. Just make sure you don’t fill it past 4 quarts.

        Is there a filter that needs to be changed.I was wondering if I should drop the tranny pan and replace the gasket put in new trans fluid and possibly change the filter.I would appreciate any information on this subject.I guess I need to buy Haynes repair book on my 08 tundra.Thanks for any information.

    I have a 2007 tundra but don’t know where to check the transmission fluid, I look everywhere there’s not even a dip stick.

    I have a 2010 Tundra Double Cab 5.7 V/8. Let the dealer do it as all you can do is a drain a flush. The majoity of the fluid is in the torque converter. I e-mailed Toyota Canada and asked them why there was no dip stick. Their reply was they didn’t want the owner trying to service their vehicles transmission. My reply to them was then why even bother with an oil dip stick. I said it is called piece of mind. You are going on a trip you check your coolant, oil, and automatic transmission fluid level to see where it is at. If any are low you can add or at least find out were it is going. So you are driving along in the summer maybe with a trailer and all of a sudden your trany craps out off warranty to bad so sad. Who ever came up with that idea should be shot with a ball of his own shit!

    • Jim,

      Agree with not having a dipstick. The shooting with a ball, not so much. :)

      Jim,
      I own a 2010 4.6 Tundra and did alot of research before purchasing it. The reason for no dip stick is Toyota went with a sealed unit that helps keep dirt and moisture out. I guess if you dont see trans fluid on the ground your good to go?

    I can’t find the damn dip stick either. Now I know I’m not nuts. Checked my oil and all the other fluids but feel at a loss not to check the transmission fluid on my 2012 Tundra 5.7 liter, 8 cylinder monster. Seems like I can check it on lesser vehicles that don’t haul major loads and get very hot. I like the dipstick idea and the shit shooting ball idea.
    I’ll quit looking for the magic want now and just find solace in knowing that some really major oversight in design has occurred. Kinda like not having an integrated towing system from the inside.
    Nice truck though.

    Jim:)

    I drained my transmission fluid instead of the oil and must replace my transmission fluid. I can’t locate where to put it into. I’ve researched 2008 Toyota Tundra engine diagrams and can’t find anything on it. If and when I do find it how will I be able to check the level?

    I have a haynes manual that says the oil capacity for filter change is 2.2 quarts. not so, i drained 3.8 quarts from the pan
