SOURCE: location of transmission fluid indicator dipstick

Couldn't find mine either. It's not in the owners manual. Actually, I found out that it does not have one. According to VW Vortex, they check the fluid at the dealership by computer.

SOURCE: transmission dipstick

Your car has a sealed transmission, no dipstick, the fluid is checked with an electronic scan tool when it is at the proper temperature through an access port on top of trans. The reason they do this is to keep owners from overfilling the trans, very common problem and can ruin the transmission.

SOURCE: transmission dipstick location

Sorry, I'm just now getting it to you.  The dipstick is located on the passenger side of the car way down at the bottom.  It should have a yellow handle.  It's just to the right and down of the battery.  Let me know if you can't find it still and I will get you a picture somehow.

Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny


This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    How do i put oil into the automatic gear box i can find the dip stick but no way of putting the oil in


    Hi,

    Good thing you know the dipstick is located!

    Try to use a funnel that fits in the dipstick tube, insert the funnel in the hole of the tube and pour the ammount of fluid you needed to top up your transmission.

    Hope that helps you a lot!

    Thanks for using Fixya!

    Where do you put the transmission fluid on a 2008 Kia Spectra?


    Locate the transmission dipstick. To add transmission fluid, simply remove the dipstick and insert a funnel in tube, then slowly add fluid. Do not overfill, as this will cause the transmission to slip and possibly cause damage.

    I do not have the owner's manual and need to know how to fill the ATF resorvoir.


    ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) is added to the transmission through the dipstick tube. First make sure that you are checking the fluid level correctly:

    Start the engine and let the engine warm up for a minute or two.
    Then pull the dipstick from the ATF dipstick tube and wipe it clean; reinsert it back into the tube, paying close attention that you are inserting it all the way down until the tube is sealed again.
    Then remove the dipstick and check the level of fluid on the dipstick, with attention to the fluid level markings on the dipstick.
    Do this several different times to make sure you are getting accurate readings, as some transmissions make it difficult to REMOVE fluid, in case of overfilling.
    If you DO add any, add just a little at a time, and permit time for the fluid to settle, so you can get accurate readings of the dipstick fluid level.
    Constantly recheck to make sure you do not overfill your transmission.

    Hope this helps.

    Where does on put in transmition fluid?


    Before you put transmission fluid in, make sure it needs it. Check the transmission fluid with vehicle warm, engine running, emergency brake set and transmission in neutral. Pull the dipstick and wipe it off. Insert the dipstick back into the dipstick tube completely and then pull it back out. The fluid level should be between the two marks on the bottom of the dipstick. If it needs fluid pour the fluid into the dipstick tube (using a funnel). Only add about 1/2 quart of fluid at a time before you recheck it. Do not over fill the fluid.

    Where do u check the level


    Levels:
    Transmission fluid level:
    The transmission dipstick tube looks like a slightly large oil dispstick tube. It is located near the firewall on the drivers side.
    Set parking /emergency brake.
    With engine warm and running, pull dipstick and clean off with rag. Insert disptick and pull out. Check fluid level.
    To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel (good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen). Auto stores also sell "special" funnels with a short rubber hose attached to the end.
    Not all transmission fluid is the same. Purchase only the one made for your vehicle (Volvo?)
    I hope it was the transmission fluid level that you needed.
