TRANSMISSION - Continued.
HOT OIL CHECK ( HOT RUN BAND). Be sure temperature has reached
160°-200°F (71°-93°C). With truck on level ground, engine idling, and transmission in
N (Neutral), remove dipstick from oil filler tube, wipe clean, and check oil level. If oil
registers in the HOT RUN band, quantity of oil in transmission is safe for operating
vehicle. If fluid level registers on or below the bottom line of the HOT RUN band, add
required amount of oil to bring oil level to the middle of the HOT RUN band.
OIL CAN POINTS. On-condition or weekly, lubricate sparingly with OE/HDO: door
hinges and latches (View G); driver and passenger seat adjusters and sliding tracks
(View H); and spare wheel and tire carrier ratchet gear shaft (View I).
