Hey, friends. It's Len here at 1A Auto. Today I'm working on a 2007 Hyundai Elantra. I want to show you something very simple. We're going to be checking the transmission fluid. It's right over here. This is the dipstick. Right? It says AT oil. So all we're going to do is we're going to lift this up. We're going to clean it off as we go. I'll show you what it looks like here. Got our rag. Right down here, there's two little slashes on the side of the stick, and it also has a little C on the stick. Up here, there's two little slashes next to my thumb, and it says hot. So when the vehicle's hot and it's been running for a while, and it's at its normal operating temperature with the vehicle running, your fluid should be up in between these two hatches. If it's some place down here while it's hot and running, well then it's a little low, so you're going to want to add a little bit, okay?

If it's all the way up here with the vehicle running and it's nice and hot, well then it's too high, so you're going to have to make a decision on what you're going to do there. Okay? I just wanted to show you where to be looking. If the vehicle was cold like this one is, it should be located all the way down here. I mean, theoretically, you shouldn't be wasting any time checking fluid with it off and cold anyways, but I just wanted to show you that that is the cold range. This is the hot range. So all you would do is pull your dipstick like I just did, dry it off, make sure it's nice and clean, put it in, leave it for a second. You're going to bring it back up.

This fluid right here is very, very high. It should be all the way down here someplace. Okay? So we'd have to take some fluid out of this one. It should be right down there, so all I would do is I would get a little bit of fluid out of there, get it to its correct area. And then of course I would run it so it got hot, and then I would recheck it, and I would get it up inside there. So with that said, we're going to assume that the fluid's where it should be. We'll put that back in so it's nice and firmly in. There we go. Now we've checked our transmission fluid.
