No there is not one. There is no dipstick on that model. You must take the car to a shop to have fluid levels checked.

Transmission fluid


First, refer to the dip stick top or the vehicle manual to identify which type of fluid to add to your transmission.
I presume you are referring to the more popular automatic transmission for many markets.


Run the vehicle until it is warm.


Remove the gearbox oil dipstick.


Jack the vehicle up a little if it helps, as you will need a drain tray and tool. Creep under the vehicle and remove the gearbox oil drain bung. It's usually at the lowest point, in the gearbox oil pan.


Drain the oil until you have almost no drips.


If you don't wish to replace the gearbox oil filter at this point, then procede to tighten the drain bung back into the oil pan/sump using a fresh washer if needed. Once tight (don't go mad as these can strip easily) you can procede to add your new oil.


You will likely need a very thin funnel to fit into the dipstick tube as this is where the oil is added on almost all Japanese models at least. If you can't find out how much oil to add to your vehicle, then add as much as you dropped out at first, or perhaps a little less as your fresh oil is cold as opposed to the expanded, warmer oil which came out.


Once added, start the vehicle, and go through the gears with your foot on the brake.
With the engine running and in Park, check the gearbox oil level.


You can often get false readings on the dipstick until all the oil you added to the dipstick tube has run into the gearbox, so you might want to check this after half an hour or so.


Run the vehicle, do a road-test, and then return and recheck for any oil leak at the drain bung and the oil level once again.


Gearboxes are very sensitive to having incorrect oil levels, so try to keep it as accurate as possible.


Good luck!

How check oil in gearbox of a 1999 hilux


if it is a manual gearbox there should be a plug on the side of the gearbox about halfway up unscrew it & by putting your finger in & feeling down you should be able to feel the oil, if not you need to add oil, this plug is also the oil level plug, you add oil until it runs out of the hole,if it an automatic transmission you should find a dipstick similar to the engine dipstick & you add oil through that tube......hope this helps......cheers

How much gearbox oil do I need to put in my renault kangoo 1.9 diesel


If this is a manual gearbox, simply add the appropriate oil till it begins to spill back out of the fill plug. This is the correct level. If it is automatic, i would begin with 6 pints and run the engine, shift through the gears and place back into park and check the dipstick. Fill 1/2 pint at a time from there.

Leaky transfer case or gearbox. Oil covering front diff.


If the front differential is covered with oil, chances are that the leak is from the pinion seal on the diff itself or from an engine leak. check all the fluids and find what is low and clean off all the residue there so you can find the source. Since the t case is behind the diff, and the air flow is towards the rear (unless you drive backwards all day long) any leaks would tend to blow towards the back, not towards the front.Once you find the actual leak source, someone here can help advise you on how the repair can be made.

Change transmision oil


You don't say if it's auto or stick shift. So-

Auto. Start the engine until warm. Drive vehicle onto ramps, SECURE IT! front up, turn engine off. With engine warm, at the back of the gearbox is a drain plug (we'll deal with that first) Remove the plug and drain all oil out of the gearbox. On the bottom of an auto box there is a plate, if it is easily accessable remove the plate, taking care not to split the seal, Wipe off as much of the reidue as possible, then using a releasing oil, somthing like WD40, spray the inside of the plate and it disolves the final bit of gunk. Replace the plate, the plug, Wipe some clean oil on ALL surfaces that are touching, seals etc, and tighten. Under the hood is a dipstick, by the bulkhead, for the gearbox. Remove the dipstick, and with a funnel through the dipstick pipe, top up the gearbox with the CORRECT OIL until it touches the bottom of the stick, Start the engine and slowly, let the car run off the ramps. With the engine running, wait until up to temp, check your level again, it will have dropped, don't panic, then top up the same way until the oil is between the two marks on the dipstick.

NOW

Stick shift. the same as above up until I mention the plate. There isn't one! Remove all the oil, refit the plug. On the top of the gearbox, just off centre, is the re-fil nut. With the car on the ramp, refill with oil. The oil should have come with a flexi tube on top of the bottle, if not, use a funnel on a tube that fits into the nut hole on top of the gearbox, making sure you can access it though the engine bay to fill. Get someone to lie under the car so they can see when the oil comes out of the fill hole, that means it's full. Refit the filler plug, and reverse off ramps. There is no dipstick to check on a stick shift, you don't need it.

It sounds like a long job, but it'll take an hour tops!

Let me know how you get on, any further problembs let my know. Dave

Bmw 330 d step/auto gear box oil level ,location


Hello There

There is no dipstick to check the oil with. The only thing you can do is to top up the oil to makixum level. There are two 17mm bolts on the gear box, accessed from under the car, the one at the bottom is for draining the oil, there is one on the side if the gearbox which is the one you need to add gearbox oil.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Many Thanks

Location of oil dipstick


The oil dipstick is located at the back of the engine.  If you look at the engine from a top view it is located at about 11 o'clock.  It's black.
