SOURCE: transmission fluid on 06 equinox

Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak

checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

SOURCE: where is the Transmission fluid dip stick to add

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!
Keep using Fixya

Does the chevy equinox 2005 use steering wheel fluid... If so, where is it located in the engine?


It is highly unlikely that you will find a car which does not use power steering fluid these days. Under the hood you will find several containers with lids (washer fluid; brake fluid; power steering fluid etc.) There will either be a clear symbol or words indicating which type of fluid to use. Make sure you use the type of fluid that is recommended by the manufacturer

I have a 2005 equinox and had to replace the radiator. Some Transmission fluid leaked out and I would like to "top off" the fluid. Do I have to remove the battery casing to get acces to the top...


No, you add fluid in the same hole the check stick is located. Remove teh dip stick and put funnel in teh hole and add fluid in the same location. if that is a manual transmission you will ahve to locate teh check hole on the side of the transmission, normally passenger side or rear of teh transmission and add fluid at that location. Since the lines connected to your radiator I assume you have an automatic since manual transmissions normally do not.

How do you check the automatic transmission Fluid in a 2005 Equinox ?


pull out the red dipstick withe the enging warmed up and running. the fluid should appear more red than black- if it is black- fluid should be changed. level should be up to the line that says HOT but not over that line. if car is hot and level is at cold level or lower-find out correct fluid and add some 1/4 quart at a time and check level

Where do I find the dipstick for my transmission on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?


Should be a red handled dipstick on the left hand side of the motor. Not all car's have the dipstick, many types, you have to go underneath, find the upper fill plug on the tranny, remove the plug, and reach your finger inside and you should feel the fluid at the top of the hole.

Am I supposed to change the transmission filter in my 2005 equinox? If so when?


There is no service filter on your asin transmission. You can only flush the fluid. The fluid is NOT cheap. It takes a special fluid that is only, to my knowage, avalible at a dealership. The only filters in the transmission are for catastrophic failure. Meaning when the shop needs to take the transmisson apart when it fails.

open the hood and find the dipstick for the tranny, passenger side up by the firewall, there are instructions most of the time on the dip stick.
have the car running and in park, on the dipstick there will be a cold mark for if the tranny is not warmed up, and a hot mark for if the tranny is at running temp. mark sure the fluid is in the checkered lines if not add fluid
