Add fluid transmission


TRANSMISSION FLUID

Checking automatic transmission fluid

The 5R55N transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.

Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for

fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid.

However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not

working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you

notice some sign of fluid leakage.

Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.

Need to add transmission fluid to 2001 kia rio


Add fluid through the dipstick tube with a small funnel. When checking level, car should be at operating temperature (engine and transmission warmed up), and put in park on a level surface, engine idling. Check the fluid level, shut off car, and add fluid as needed.
It is important not to overfill, as that can lead to damage from foaming and loss of fluid pumping through the transmission. And fluid should be hot when checked, because transmission fluid expands when hot. The level will be higher on the dipstick when hot than when fluid is cool.
Now if you have a manual transmission, there is no stick for checking level. You remove the fill plug, a large bolt on the side of the case about half-way up on the case, and see if fluid level is right up to the bottom of the plug hole.

However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.

1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

The transmission dipstick is near the big black box near the drivers steering wheel area under the hood. It has a black plastic "stopper" at the top, drive car at least 10 minutes before checking fluid level.

How to add trans fluid


Checking the transmission fluid in your Volkswagen isn't as simple as it used to be. To check the transmission fluid level requires your vehicle to be on a lift that it can be set level on. With the engine running and transmission warm, a plug has to be removed from the bottom of the transmission pan. This plug is at the base of a short stand-pipe (tube) inside the transmission oil pan. With the plug removed a small amount of oil should spill out (what is trapped in the stand-pipe) and if the fluid is at the correct it will continue to drip. If that is the case the transmission fluid is at the correct level. If all that comes out is what is trapped in the stand-pipe then the fluid level could be low. To add fluid to the transmission requires removal of the fill plug that is located on the front left upper corner by the oil pan. Oil is added at that point until oil starts running out or dripping from the stand-pipe. When replacing the fill plug you also need a replacement lock for the plug from Volkswagen. Many of today's vehicles are equipped with sealed transmissions that require specialized procedures, equipment and parts to check the transmission fluid level. Sorry for the bad or good news. This way just make sure that the person services the transmission to keep the warranty valid.
