    I have the same problem, the gear change is very rough.

    I also have the same problem. i drive a 2001 SL2 series. every time i stop and go, there's a big shift and clunk when it switches gears. i had my uncles friend take a look at it and he said it could be my motor mounts. he ended up repairing them, but it didn't fix the problem. my car seems to do fine when i'm driving on the freeway at a steady pace 65-70 mph. the clunking only occurs when i drive on the streets where theres a lot of stopping and going. it also happens when i put the car in reverse. the whole car shifts......please help someone!!!

This vehicle has no dipstick, supposed to be maintained by professional only. there is the fill cap on the drivers side, between the fuse box and engine. it is red and more towards the bottom. i imagine you can atleast see the fluid status.

How do you put transmission fluid in a 2001 Ford Excursion


first read your owners manual so you know exactly what type of transmission fluid and how to read the dipstick. Make sure you know the difference between the oil dipstick and the transmission dipstick. Buy a long narrow funnel at the parts store where you buy the fluid. It will have to fit into the transmission dipstick tube. Add fluid through the transmission dipstick tube. This is not something that must be done often, unless you have a serious leak somewhere. You are at 10 years, if your tranny is slipping, be prepared to get it rebuilt.

How do you properly check the transmission fluid?


To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:

emissionwiz_76.jpg If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.


emissionwiz_77.jpg To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
  1. Pull out the dipstick.

    With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)

  2. Check the fluid.

    Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.

  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.

    If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!

well you cant find the dipstick for the simple reason there is no dipstick,,,you have a VTI or CVT transmission,,with operates like a snowmobile transmission,,anyhow it takes special transmission fluid,,very expensive,,,,Saturn had alot of problems with these transmissions,,,,what i would try is take your car to the dealer and have them change the trans fluid and do the latest TCM update for the trans,,this can do wonders for these trans,,,,,and if that dont work youre gonna need a new trans,,,,,which is alot like $5000-$7000 installed,,,,there was a factory exteneded warranty to 150k miles but when GM went thru bankruptcy they ditched it,,so you will now have to incure costs to fix it,,,thanks GM..,the trans fluid change and tcm update ,, TCM trans control module,,will cost about $350,,hope this helps

Cant find a dipstick to check transmission fluid on a Saturn L300 (2004). Where do you check the amount of fluid in the transmission.


Sometimes like in a BMW there is no dipstick and the fluid may be checked by a cylinder container much like the brake fluid resevoire. It would have a dipstick in the cap.

Adding transmission fluid to my 2003 saturn vue


the dipstick is located behind the front transmission mount and its held in by a 12mm bolt. you may need to remove the transmission mount to check the fluid. the color of the dipstick is yellow, make sure the car is in park and fully warmed up to operating temerature and on a level surface before checking the fluid.

Cant find where to add transmission fluid


on some of the newer cars they dont have dipsticks they have a plug near the pan that you have to pull on the trans to check the fluid level and to fill it there is a cap hidden on top of the trans by all the stuff you have to try to bend a funnel around to get in it. dont you love the engineers

Manual transmission, but a short red tipped dipstick,looks like tranny fluid?


I have a 1998 saturn with a manual transmission and it took me quite some time to locate the dip stick. it is located on top of the gearbox close to the brake resevoir where the linkeage connects. it has a red plastic clip on top of the dip stick and submerges verticaly into the gearbox and is about six inches long. the red clip can easliy be hidden with black dirt and not seen. do not confuse this with the clutch reservoir fluid located to the right of the brake master cylnder. good luck.
