    Just discoverd this problem today with my 98 olds cutlass. Just had it inspected today and complained to mechanic about a humming noise when I go over 45 miles, and he said don't worry about it, and could not find anything wrong. Just had a front end allignment yesterday. Going to call mechanic tomorrow to see about transmission fluid, and the allignment shop too.

    Had the car for 4yrs., and replaced 4 springs, two in the last month??????

    Let you know about info on trans. fluid. Thanks for your info.

Bad News! I just checked the Maintenance Logs and it seems that you CANNOT add Tranny fluid on this Cutlass. It has to go in for Service. I know that is Stupid, I TOTALLY Agree!

SOURCE: Need to add transmission fluid to a 1998 Olds Cutlass

on the 98 cutlass if its a 3.1, no dipstick, all other engine models do. on the 3.1 there is no dipstick on it.on these models, it is not necessary to check the fluid at regular intervals.if leaks or other problems lead you to think fluid is low heres how to check it. WARNING the procedure is dangerous, it is best left to a professional with a safe lifting apparatus.the vehicle must be kept level while being safely raised high enough for access to the check plug on trans axle. If your 98 Cutlass has a 3.1 liter V-6 engine, the transmission is not equipped with a dipstick; this transmission requires a special procedure and equipment to accurately check the fluid, which should be done by a qualified service technician. All other engines have a dipstick that is used to check the fluid level and condition. for more info call the olds garage!

Where is the transmission dipstick located in a 1998 chevy prizm



  • No dipstick on this transmission. This transmission has two plugs on the transmission itself, underneath the vehicle.
  1. Turn the vehicle off for this transmission.
  2. Pull the top plug first. This is the check / fill hole. If fluid comes out of that hole then the fluid level is OK. If it does not then add until it just barely seeps out and this is the proper way to fill your transmission.
  3. You can continue by pulling the bottom plug (with a fluid pan underneath to catch all the transmission fluid) and let all the fluid drain.
  4. Not plug the lower hole.
  5. Now fill the transmission from the upper hole.
  6. Now plug the top hole.
  7. That is a transmission drain and fill and you just saved $60+ that a shop would charge in labor.

I have a 1998 olds cutlass and dont know how to add transmission fluid. can anyone help me?


If you find the dipstick, this is where you add. You must use a long skinny funnel. Idle your car in park and check the dipstick for correct levels.

I can't find the well for the Automatic Transmission Fluid. I see the cap for engine oil, brake fluid and steering fluid but no transmission fluid. Please help!!!


You must locate the transmission dip stick. Look towards the rear near the firewall. It looks like the oil dipstick but larger. You fill up or add transmission fluid through the transmission dipstick hole.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

I can not locate trans.dip stick on a 1998 Olds Cutlass.


Sorry I think the 1998 cutlass has a 4t40e trans. It has no dipstick. You have to remove a plug by the passenger CV shaft and fill the trans until fluid runs from the plug.

The Tranny fluid goes in the Dipstick Hole. You will need a Narrow Funnel for this.
