Hello. I posted yesterday concerning the whereabouts of the dipstick to the transmission for my '96 Jeep Cherokee (4.0L S6 Manual). I was told it is along the firewall on the left adjacent to the oil dipstick and my manual shows about the same location but there is no dipstick at all, just a capped off tube. It's a rubber tube with a clamp and a cap sticking up about 5" that leads down to the transmission which would make sense for it to be the level check but has no dipstick. Does this mean I have to have a technician check it or can I purchase a stick for it?
This tube should not be capped off. It should have a yellow or possibly red clamping style dipstick in it. Also this tube should not be rubber, I believe they are usually made of a harder plastic. Based on this I would consult a technician. You should be able to go to a smaller shop, go in and ask them to take a quick peek, they will normally be more willing than a large dealership and won't charge you just to look.

Look for the dipstick where you check the transmision fluid level. If you need any you pour it down the dipstick hole. Add it in small amounts and check in between additions, its really easy to overfill. Once overfilled a real pain to get it out.
You shouldn't have to, but check for clearance before you start. The height between the bottom of the pan and the cross member should be more than the height of the pan itself.You may be able to gain an 1 or so, but using a jack or the front of the transmission bell housing and on the output shaft. DO NOT try to support the weight of the vehicle, just try to gain a little clearance if needed.
does it have an automatic or manual transmission? If it's a manual transmission there is no dipstick. If It's a automatic transmission the dipstick should be located near the firewall of the vehicle where the transmission bolts up to the engine block and usually has a red handle to designate it as the transmission dipstick.
Some cars have 2 marks on the dipstick, one for hot, one for cold, If you have the one mark, it is for hot, and in park. The dipstick hole is the filler. Get the right transmission fluid and a long funnel. Hope this helps.
To check the transmission level remove the dipstick and check to see how much fluid is on the dipstick, it will have a line to indicate full or anything below this line will need to add fluid. The vehicle should be warm with the temperture gauge above 180, and the vehicle should be running to get the proper reading. The fluid should be a bright red color anything darker may need changing, depending on the interval indicated in the owners manual.
