There is a dipstick to verify the fluid level IF it's an automatic. That's where u fill it from with the help of a funnel.

If it's manual, it needs to be filled in a garage because u need to fill it on the underside of the tranny by way of a plug u unscrew.

Transmission not changing gears

Hi Eddy, Check the fluid level in the box. Select parking brake and put vehicle in 'N', start the engine and with engine running pull out the dip stick. Top up the transmission using the tube where the dipstick is housed. Don't over fill. Regards John

Where do I find the transmission filter on a Mazda 2002 MPV

On the bottom of the transmission will be a transmission pan plater with maybe 8 or 10 bolts holding it on. The transmission filter us underneath that plate. When you refill the transmission you will want to use Dexron/Mercon IV fluid.
To change the filter (and gasket) they should come as a set.
  1. Put a pan under the transmission as you will loose two quarts maybe a little more.
  2. Loosen the bolts starting with the bolt farthest from you working your way evenly back.
  3. Soon fluid will start to drain. Let it drain as it goes. Give it a little time before continuing.
  4. When you get to the last bolt or two hold the pan firm while removing the bolts and lean the pan away from you and empty the pan of all fluid.
  5. Now remove the two screws holding the transmission filter in place and pull down on the filter.
  6. Now you want to clean the inside of the pan real good. Brake clean to soap and water will work.
  7. Dry the pan real real good. Should be almost shinny.
  8. Now place the new filter where the old one was removed from.
  9. Now line the gasket up on the pan and set it against the transmission.
  10. Get a start on a few of the bolts so the pan will stay put.
  11. As you tighten the rest of the bolts you will want to tighten cross ways. Like you would a wheel.
  12. Now you will want to refill the transmission fluid to proper level. Your manual will tell you the exact amount but for this car two quarts would be a good starting point.
  13. Now start the car and look underneath the car and inspect for leaks.
  14. Now put your foot on the brake and just shift your vehicle into every gear a couple times. All the way down then all the way up. This fills the pockets.
  15. Now put the emergency brake on and put the car into neutral and check the fluid. Adjust accordingly. Mind the area on the dipstick for a "cold check" as the transmission will still be cool at this point.
Regards, Tony

Servicing the transmission and dont know where to put the fluid

How would you get to the point of
servicing a transmission and not
know how to check or fill it?

Are we talking removing the pan, to
remove the old fluid,then refilling?

You should find a small dip stick
on top of the transaxle,that will also
be your fill hole.

Honda-uses a special fluid,your aware of that?

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.

we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

How do i put in transmission oil 2004 volkswagen passat

There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u will find on older american cars.

The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.

The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.

How do i fill manual trasmossion fluid?

there is a screw on the side of the transmission. You will need to unscrew this to fill the transmission up with fluid. You will need a pump to pump the fluid into it, also you should check it after opening it stick your finger into the hole and see if you can feel any fluid, tranny should be filled to the point of being able to feel the fluid through the fill hole/w finger. Also check your owners manual to find proper transmission fluid to put in the car, Wrong fluid can damage your transmission causing breakage or transmission to never work again. Thank you hope this helps....

Don`t no where to put transmission fluid

If you find your transmission fluid pan under your vehicle you will find two plugs one will sit a little higher than the other.  The higher one is the fill/check plug and the lower is the drain plug.  It's kinda hard to get fluid in but if you need to put it in you need to get some sort of pump to pump it up into the pan or get a long piece of tubing and attach it to the fluid bottle and have someone hold it outside the car higher than the pan and you can make sure the other end of the tube stays in the fill hole.  You want to fill it until there is a little fluid flowing out.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

How can i put transmission fluid into my car,how much do i put in

Check the Level of the transmission fluid by pulling the Transmission dip stick. The colour of the dip stick is most likely red in colour and you need to check it with the car's engine running and hot. Pull the dip stick out clean it off and check it again. always check the second reading. 
To fill the transmission, you need to fill it through the Transmission dip stick tube. Yes your going to need a thin funnel and good luck. Do not over fill the transmission. over filling will cause damage to the transmission. 
Best thing is, if you have not done a transmission oil and filter change. Have it done at a Transmission shop and you'll know that the transmission level is fine and have them show you have to check and fill the Transmission. As time goes by and mileage get's high, the fluid will get contaminated and the filter plugged up which would in turn cause a transmission failure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and the type of transmission fluid should be in your manuel or stamped on the dip stick.

How do you put in transmission fluid?

Unfortunately, you have a closed system transmission, there is no dipstick or filler tube. I have a 96 passport and to have fluid replaced in the transmission you need to take it to a garage that is equipped to fill closed transmissions. This generally runs about $100.00 at the dealership. I was on my way to get my transmission serviced when the trans broke. Don't wait long if you're having issues.
