If your car has a transmission dipstick, it will be next to the intake manifold on the driver's side sort of toward the firewall. To remove it so you can check the fluid level, you must tilt the handle to the side and then pull it out. Some transmissions don't have a dipstick and the fluid level must be checked from underneath the car by taking out a plug on the side of the pan.

Do you mean the brown flask shaped bottle with the black cap? They can get very tight over time. Best thing is to use a dry cloth or rag & give it your all. Anti Clockwise I'm sure!
If it's very slippy & covered in oil, dirt etc give it a wash with warm water & dish washer fluid. Something that will remove the grease. Dry it off then try again.
The bottle can be removed with the hose on the bottom still attached !!! If you need to hold it in one hand while trying to twist the cap of with your other hand.
If all this fails then may I suggest one of those handy gadgets for opening Jars. They can be picked up in most household goods stores. This should give you the leverage needed.

Transmission slipping on 03 GMC Envoy. what does iy mean when trans fluid measure high on dip stick?


Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this.
#2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.

I have a 2000 vw jetta and the transmission slips and cant find the dip stick to check if its low what can i do for the transmission to shift right?


Slipping doesn't start all of a sudden,
even if your loosing fluid

99% of the time, your going to be rebuilding the trans

That may be in a couple of weeks, if you keep
driving it

I would stop by a trans repair shop ,
and have them show you what ever you
need to know

My transmission slips ocassionally


First allow the engine and transmission to heat up to normal.
Then pull out the transmission dip stick and carefully make sure it has enough fluid. Put in fluid if needed.

If it still occurs then you still could have a fluid problem if it has not beenchanged in a long time. You can go to a garage and have them change the fluid. Might also want them to change the filter for the transmission fluid. To do so it is necessary to completely unbolt and remove the large transmission fluid pan. be sure to install a new filter inside there and also a new pan gasket.

Been looking for dip stick to transmission on my 1996 bmw 318i.an cant find it .please help


hey there
they are normal at the back of the motor and really low almost so you cannot see it
i am thinking the passengers side towards the back down low and close to the motor
when checking fluid using the dipstick for the transition you must pull the dip stick out with in 5 seconds of turning the car off don't do it while the car is cold as you will get an unaccurate mesure
