Under the air filter there's a bolt you have to take off to fill it up if you have manual transmission.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu. and I cant find the transmission dip stick. been told have to check with special tool from underneath. this seems stupid to me there has to be a dipstick from under the hood to...

There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level. Transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out the bolt hole. Typical GM engineering. Just check the owners manual. It should tell you something about this.

Where is the dip stick to check the transmision fluid how do you check the transmision fluid?

2005 Chevy Malibu has a sealed transmission with no dipstick, so you can't check the transmission fluid level without getting underneath the car and looking at the transmission itself.

Locate the transmission. Look for a small plug with a hex bolt on the passenger side of the transmission, adjacent to the passenger side front tire.

Start the engine and let it warm up to regular operating temperature. Remove the hex bolt from the plug hole in the side of the transmission with a wrench or socket. If transmission fluid flows freely from the hole, the fluid level is correct. If it barely drips, or no fluid comes out, the transmission fluid level is low.

Were do you check the transmision fluid level

You can find the transmission level check dip stick under the hood near the back of the motor. Usually they can be found on the passenger side of the motor. Just look near the back of the motor, you will see a pull handle that says "Trans Fluid" just pull it out and check your fluid! Hope this helps!

Checking transmission fluid level

the cavalier transmission has a level check plug , its between the bell housing and the axel tube on the torque converter side of the transmission , has to be done from under the car , by removing the check plug if fluid comes out its full if no fluid comes out add fluid accordingly . the cap you did find is the fill point only .

Transmission fluid stick

Transmission is sealed and the fluid level has to be checked by a technincian since it has to be checked on the transmission itself.  There is no fluid stick.

2000 Chev Malibu 3.1 L checking the transmission oil level is a must since there is no dipstick to check the oil level with. The MOTOR oil is hot to change the oil in the motor. Driving the car up on ramps alters the level a bit as does the trans fluid at 200 degrees instead of the recommended 100 degrees. Let the car idle while you slide cardboard, newspaper, a flex socket wrench with a deep 7/16 inch six point socket. Set both the Park at the transmission gear selector and the parking brake, and put blocks behind and in front of the rear tires before you climb underneath the car. Cars roll off of jacks, ramps and whatever enables mechanics to get underneath. Before changing the motor oil while the engine is at a slow idle, using a six point 7/16 wrench turn the plug on the passenger side of the transmission counter clockwise looking down at the top of the bolt/inspection plug. If oil runs out put the plug right back in. If not add about four ounces at a time.
To add fluid, remove the red add fluid cap is on top of the chain/side cover which is underneath the exhaust crossover in front of the air valve. I used a turkey baster with the bulb removed and used a funnel into the baster which I placed into the add fluid hole after removing the red add fluid cap. While it is a better to have one person adding fluid while the other is underneath yelling stop when the fluid starts to run out of the inspection hole, I added 4 oz at a time and may have a slightly overfilled transmission. Although the car is not level, if you have fluid at normal operation temperature, the expansion of the fluid will compensate for the overfill due to the rear of the car being lower than the front.
After removing the motor oil and filter, spray some engine degreaser on the side of the motor and transmission to remove dirt and to make finding future leaks and pinpoint their location.
If you do not have a leak and are not losing transmission fluid the time to check the fluid level adds less than five minutes to your oil change. If you have to remove the fill plug and add fluid after finding or buying Dextron III transmission oil, you may add 15 - 30 minutes to the oil change.
The exhaust crossover pipe is several hundred degrees even at idle. A bright flashlight is helpful to find leaks when lying on the ground underneath the car and oil pans.
