    Re: 2017 SR Access Cab, 2.7l 4-cyl, 6 speed auto trans. Even with 2 others they/I are unable to find a dip-stick to check the ATF level. If there is one...where the heck is it?

    Toyota did away with the dipstick on the 2nd gen V6 but left it for the 4 banger. This may have changed for the 3rd gen 4 banger. If so it is a check plug on the bottom of the pan and it has to be done at a certain temp.

    No because my RPMs go up when I turn the steering wheel.

    Yours does that too! I’m glad I’m not alone. I thought my truck was broken.

    He need to put a snorkel, that way the engine can breath in and out. You know like the CPAP machine for sleep apnea, eventually it will stop the snoring.
