Where is the dipsick for transmission n what type of oil is filled

There is a round plastic container near the left hand side between engine and mud guard. Unscrew the top and you will find a dipstick that shows correct fluid level. Use transmission oil sold at garages etc. The brake fluid container is on the same side near the radiator.

Add transmission fluid

unlike the oil, where you pour it in a bigger hole. The transmission fluid goes in the dip stick hole. (hard to believe but true) get a small funnel and stick it where the dipstick goes. picture shows how to find the dipstick hole from by looking at the side of your engine toward the back you will find it. 9k=

Wher do I locate my transmission fluid and brake fluid?

The Transmission fluid stick is located toward the back of the engine on the drivers side. Check on a level surface when the engine is hot and the vehicle is in "Park". Don't add fluid if within the crosshatch marks. Be sure to use the correct fluid if adding. Check your owner's manual for the correct Mercon fluid. My 2001 taurus with the 3.0 engine uses Mercon V (Mercon 5) only.

The Brake fluid can be visually checked. The master cylinder reservoir is also located on toward the back of the engine on the driver's side

Type of a/t fluid to be used

Automatic transmission :Genuine Diamond automatic transmission fluid SP-11M.


For Manual transmission :SAE 75W/90 gear oil

To replace the fluid.There are no special requirements here. Drop the pan being careful not to damage the pan gasket with a container to catch the old fluid underneath it, replace the filter, replace the pan and then add about 4 quarts (via the dipstick hole) of the required Hyundai SP-III fluid you can get at the dealer. Double check the level with the engine warm and in park position. Be aware that your transmission uses a specific formulation of transmission fluid, available at the dealer. It is a bit more expensive than off the shelf fluid like Dextron, but you are only changing it every 30K, so the cost over time is minimal. -----------

2000 Volkswagen Cabrio needs to be accelerated really hard before it goes reverse, and even then it goes very slowly. It drives well. I have checked the transmission fluid and it is good.

Best approach is to drain the tranny fluid and refill with new type F fluid. This fluid is great for restoring poor performance due to sticking clutch bands and valves.

Adding Transmission Fluid

Get a funnel and pour in the transmission fluid where the transmission oil dipstick is. The plastic container with the yellow cap is probably your radiator fluid (engine coolant)
