Tip & How-To about Daewoo Lanos
Most, if not all vehicles require the fluid in an automatic transmission, or automatic gearbox, to be added through the dipstick tube (the tube where the fluid level is checked from).
It more often than not requires the use of a small funnel. Most service station attendants are trained in this procedure.
Always use the fluid type recommended by the manufacturer, and fill to the proper level. Since the fluid is added through the dipstick tube it may take some time to get an accurate reading, due to the residue left by the new fluid.
Transmissions and Gearboxes give a more accurate reading after the vehicle is warm, or has been running/driven for at least fifteen minutes.
If this has been of any assistance, kindly rate it accordingly. Thank you.
