    Checking trans fluid, temp to check?

    I know it's suppose to be around 40 but is there a way to check it at home without having a way to check temp? I have an 06 RR with 85k on it. I wanted to make sure my levels on it are good. Thank you for the help in advance!

    On the 6 speed, it can be done up to 50*C, but I prefer cooler. Best way to do it is just first thing in the morning, and be quick about it.

    With the truck cold, go under and crack the fill plug loose, but don't remove. Have fluid and some sort of pump ready in case you need to top off. Start the truck, let it idle for about a minute in P. Get under and remove the fill plug, there should be a small stream coming out. If not, top off until there is, and put the plug back in. Don't take more then 5 minutes for the whole thing after starting it, as the fluid heats up pretty quickly.
