SOURCE: oil dipstick tube

On my girlfriend's 93 (same generation), it's right in front, between the two middle exhaust manifold runners. You should see a hole in the heat shield, and the dipstick handle is right there. If the dipstick is missing, look through that hole with a flashlight and you'll see the tube there.

there is a bolt on/near the exhaust manifold, then you should be able to wiggle&pull out.

SOURCE: How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

It has a plug in the end of the case by the passenger side cv shaft. Start the engine and remove the plug. Fill the trans thru the fill cap until oil runs from the hole. Let me know if you need more info. The transmission is a 4T40E Right? 4 speed?

Can't put fuel in tank


The fuel tank fill tube or fill tube vent pipe for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

2003 chevy 1500 has a code that says large evap leak. Where do I find this leak?


"Where" to find the leak is in your evaporative emmissions system. Most of the time, a good visual inspection will turn up the culprit. First, check the fuel cap. Look at the rubber O-Ring that seals it against the fuel fill tube. If it is cracked or looks like it is crushed down, replace your fuel cap. If that all looks OK, then you can check the rest of the system for obvious cracks, or leaks. Start with the Evap Purge line. You can identify this in the engine compartment as a plastic vacuum line about 5/16" in diameter and it has a service port on it with a green cap. Check the plastic line for cracks. Then check the rubber components that connect to this line on both ends. One end will go into the Purge Solenoid and the other will go into a steel line that runs along the frame rail under the vehicle. Follow this steel line to where it goes and inspect all connecting hoses, tanks, etc. there will also be rubber hoses at the fuel tank area and some that connect to the fuel fill tube. Check all of these for any visual signs of damage or leaks. Also check for badly corroded metal parts - especially near the fuel fill tube. Sometimes the metal tubes get rusted through and cause leaks.

If a thorough visual inpection does not lead you to a suspect, then the system will have to be "smoke-tested". This is where the system is filled with smoke under a slight amount of pressure so the leak can be seen where the smoke comes out.

WHILE DOING AN ENGINE OIL CHANGE I DRAINED THE AUTO TRANS FLUID BY MISTAKE. HOW DO I RE'FILL THE TRANS ?


Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Where do you put in transmission fluid


on that car you most likely need to get under the car and remove a plug from the trans itself to fill it. Remember to have the engine running when you fill and check the level.

1992 Dodge 250 van, 318, Automatic - Dies when coming to a stop


I cannot see how adding a fuel additive would help to be honest. I would be looking for a split or leaking vacuum line, I have even seen a leaking evap canister before that caused a similar problem. Does the engine pull clean and strong when it is warm or at cruising speeds? Does it feel like its running lean or misfiring?

Sounds like a vacuum problem with the transmission. Modulator maybe?
Take it to an auto trans specialist.

Shifter physically won't move into reverse position


To isolate the problem as either an internal transmission problem,or external to the transmission,(shifter or cable malfunction),the shifter cables should be disconnected from the transmission.On the transmission are two levers,if you have a 5 speed trans.One is the neutral gate lever,and the other is actual gear shift lever.Manipulating the levers manually,see if the transmission will engage into Reverse gear.If the transmission engages into Reverse gear,then the problem is either in the shifter mechanism itself,or the shift cables.If the transmission will not engage into Reverse gear,then the problem is either an internal problem,or possibly a switch seized up,like the reverse gear indicator switch.At this point,i would have an assistant sit in the car,engine off,and run through all the gear selections with the shifter,while watching and looking for a cable not operating to its full stroke.Take the console apart to access the shifter mechanism and visually inspect the assembly.Disconnect the cables and operate them manually,one at a time,while an assistant watches them underhood.Visually inspect the shifter and it's mechanism for a broken,cracked,or damaged component.At this point,the problem should be identified and repaired as either cable or shifter malfunction.

you have a linkage problem its either where the shifter is in the floor there is a ball there that wears out and causes this. or its loose at the transmission just pop the hood and visually inspect the transmission and the shifter linkages see if any are not connected. if its connected and tight on the trans then you know you need a new shifter in the car. they are not hard to replace.
