    I bought a used 2003 L200 without a manual. I'm getting this display light
    that the meaning of doesn't just jump out at me.

    And has anyone had to change their transmission fluid on their own with this
    car? I was looking for a dipstick until I just found out on the 'net that
    this doesn't have one...and what looks like the transmission spot is way too
    far down to get at easily. So I gotta pay to have it checked?

    Yeah this is one of those mickey mouse bean counter transaxles where
    they want you to come in and pay for servicing while saving 50 cents on
    a dipstick... At least it sure as hell seems that way. The car has to
    remain level while you take a plug out thats about 2 inches above the
    bottem of the pan. Located somewhere between the axle and the engine and
    only seen from under the car. Who's bright idea this was I'll never
    know. I went ahead and pulled a saturn fans link that should answer your

    I forgot to specify the light I wanted to clarify: the one in the lower right
    of the instrument panel. It looks like a few hills with something of an arrow
    pointing down in the middle of it. I read somewhere else that it is about the
    coolant levels.

    Thanks for the info and that other link. It sucks, but I want to bring it
    somewhere to make sure it is OK...but now I'm a little nervous that I'll just
    get someone about as talented as me at this particular item and they'll eff
    it up.
