what could appear then? i just changed my trans fluid at 29% n then pressed the button till it read 100% just like the Engine oil life one. also is this all there is to reseting it after changeing the tranny fluid and filter?
wow the trans fluid level msg got all the way down to 29% how many miles on that
anyways wow ok im not sure that its suposed to get that low
i thout someone ones said that it should never have a reason to be below 98% life left
Transmission fluid level is measured by a dipstick, exactly like the engine oil level.
Transmission fluid life is determined by comparing temperatures, time, loads, and speeds over a LONG period. Engine oil life is calculated from a similar algorithm.
Because transmission fluid is not subjected to combustion gas and acid pollution, it will last literally forever unless it is grossly overheated (in our cars the temperature warning comes on at 305 degrees - 305) or subjected to contamination from clutch band wear, metal particle contamination (final drive pinon wear) or torque converter failure. Modern transmission fluids, particularly DEXRON-VI, are some pretty tough products.
