Engine running or not for transmission fluid check

Recommended Posts



I have a 2006 2.4 Alphard and am wondering if the engine should be running or off but hot (or indeed cold) when checking the transmission fluid level.


Many thanks.

Thanks - is that off hot or off cold?  Perhaps immaterial and one just looks at appropriate markings on dipstick.

I've checked the level cold - seems fine.

Gone for a run, switched off and checked again - level looks the same as cold.  Does this seem reasonable? I'd have expected it to be up around the hot mark.
