Need to add coolant, where is radiator cap?

No idea

No vehicle to refer to

If your adding --your best find & repair
the leak in the coolant system

You add to the system through the coolant fill cap, if you
have no radiator cap

If you follow the top radiator hose, you will see it

The big white container is a coolant tank,degas bottle,or over flow tank

That also has to have coolant & is checked when cold

What cause oil burning smells after 4, 5 minutes driving 2001 VW Passat?

You may have a leaking valve cover gasket and oil is making it's way down to the exhaust or something else that gets very hot. Check your cylinder head for excessive oil dripping down off of the base of the valve cover. Check your power steering pump and hoses for leaks. After you get to where you're driving, look under the car and see where the oil spots are, if there are any. If it's dark or black in color, it's engine oil. If it's more like a red-ish color, it's transmission fluid. See where the oil spot is on the ground and check the engine and see about where it could be leaking.

I have light yellowish green fliud coming from back of the jeep i only see it on snow

open the coolant overflow tank under the hood. if fluid is the same color, you have a coolant leak somewhere towards the front which is running along something and dripping off at the back.
if not the same color then open your washer tank and check that fluid for color match. if the same then your washer system has a leak, could be front or rear if it has rear washer

How do i check my 2007 dodge ram 2500 5.9l automatic transmission?

You mean check the fluid?
You will run the vehicle to operating temperature and make sure the transmission has shifted in drive and reverse gears. Once it is at operating temp, you will park on level ground, place the shifter in NEUTRAL and set the parking brake. You may now pop the hood and remove the transmission dipstick, wipe it clean re-insert it into the transmission dipstick tube and pull it out again. Look at the level of the fluid on the stick. Look at both sides of the stick and the lowest level mark on the stick is you transmission fluid level.
When you are checking the transmission take note of the color of the fluid. It should be a reddish pink color and not have a "burnt" smell. If the fluid is turning dark red, orange-ish, or darker the fluid should be changed. Also is the fluid smells burnt or has small metallic particale in it, it should be changed. The mopar ATF does have an odor but it is not offensive or burnt smalling when the fluid is in good condition.

Where do you check the automatic transmission fluid

Gotta love GM for taking the dipstick out of these models .There is a small plug on the passenger side of the vehicle on the transaxle just above the transmission pan. Remove this plug and start the vehicle in park if the fluid is coming out then it has and adequate amount of transmission fluid if not then the fill is on the top of the transmission under the crossover exhaust pipe its a plastic red/maroon colored cap.Please be very careful as the placement of this is right under an exhaust pipe and gets extremely hot.

I have a leak coming from under my hood

2 ways to check what it is: 1st, check all fluid levels to see what is low. 2nd, if it's clear, it is your a/c condensation vent tube (normal to drip on the ground), green is coolant, red or pink would be trans. fluid, or power steering fluid, tan, or brownish would be oil or brake fluid, blue would be windshield washer fluid. So, check all the above fluid levels to see what is low, then using a white rag or paper towel, dab the ground where the leak is dripping to determine the color. Let me know what you find.
