What is the temp range needed to check the ATF fill on a 2009 Toyota Highlander? I have the Scangauge.

I found a PDF for all my Lexus but can't seem to locate one that applies to Toyotas.

Char Baby, that is a most excellent idea. I follow you but I just looked at my Lexus chart and it only goes to '08 crush

Hmmm sorry 'bout that. However, the '08 RX may be the same as an '09?!?!

IDK! I think the major change came in 2010?

They do have same engine and transmission.

Genius thought process. I am impressed.

My mechanic says 175F

Mine seems to be very sensitive to even the slightest overfill

It’s best to get the correct range...can you ask your dealer politely? Try someone in the parts department that has access. May have to call multiple dealers.

The two Aisin’s I’ve worked on were both 35-45C. ‘05 MINI & 19 Buick Regal.


03 Honda Interceptor
11 Kawasaki KLR 650
12 Ford E450
19 Buick Regal TourX

Actually, I’m looking for the PDF

Most all the Lexus are between 97-133F or 36-56C

I’m thinking 104-113 like Lotl said.
