Check your owners manual, it will give you the type
and fill capacity, if your doing a trans service.

    Sorry, but I'm not familiar with Toyoda's, or any foreign cars, for

    that matter.

    Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.

    If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

    Automatic transmission oil type & power steering oil type

    Genuine Hyundai ATF. DO NOT use any other fluid. I say again DO NOT use any other fluid even if it claims to be compatible. Hyundai says there is no substitute. Drive to your local Hyundai dealer and purchase the fluid there and take no chances of destroying your transmission to save a few dollars.

    2002 saturn vue checking transmission fluid

    Absolutely if it is an automatic transmission. You do need to use the right type for your product. If you do not change oil yourself, the lube shop should check the trans with each oil change while they do the rest of the work.

    Where is transmission oil located in the car?

    do you mean..dip stick? oil filter? or something like that?

    if it is a manual transmission they have a filler hole rather than a dip stick.........

    if it is a automatic transmission the dip stick should be located under the hood in the right side "passengers side" or in the drivers side if it is a front wheel drive car....
