SOURCE: trans fluid on my 2004 srx

hello,
there is no dipstick the brilliant engineers made the transmission internal and you have to go under neath the car find the transmission and open up the fill plug if you unscrew the fill plug fluid should come out if not fill it with the right fluid also make sure you run it threw drive reverse and then neutral with the car running and then fill up the fluid in the transmission and on a level surface welcome to one of the night mares of owning a Cadillac as the car gets older the more you'll find out how great these cars really aren't.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto

VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: air bubbles in trans fluid

If you have too much fluid it can lead to foaming. I would check that first.

Dose not go in third gear smoothly


first thing to do is to check the fluid level to make sure that it is where it should be.if the level is ok then i would say you probably have a bad shift solenoid which is located in the transmission under the pan or on the side of the trans. also it could be a bad speed sensor if the sensor is bad the trans does not no where it should be so it tries to compensate for the difference thus giving you a hard shift.all of this is done electronically. you can have it checked by putting it on a diagnostic especially if you have a check engine light on. hope this atleast gives you a place to start. if you have any questions shoot me a message.

How do you change the tranmission fluid in a 2004 Honda V6 Coupe? Can you provide a step by step with a video or pictures?


there is a drain plug, take it out, let fluid drain out until it stops. put drain plug back in. find dipstick, take dipstick out, fill trans approx 3 qts. check level with engine off. use only HONDA trans fluid. If you cant do this, take it to a shop. You may need to bring your own trans fluid as most shops will not keep it in stock. should not cost much more than a engine oil change.

Dip stick to check oil fluid transsmision on grand am 2004


Unfortunately for the consumer there is no dipstick to check the trans fluid on this vehicle. There is however a way to check the fluid, but the car needs to be up in the air and running, then you remove a plug from the lower part of the trans. at the right side axle where it comes out of the trans., and if fluid dribbles out when removed the fluid lvl is fine.

Tran oil


The simplest way is to take your own trans fluid to a shop with a flush system available...otherwise you have to drop the trans pan....make sure you use the factory fluid

Series II Discovery oil leak from the front steering union


Unfortunately Discoveries will always eventually leak some fluid, People who say theirs do not leak have just not found the problem yet. I just traded a 2003 for a new vehicle. First the power steering can and does leak but since the fluid capacity is not that much, if you have a continous leak and the power steering still works it is probably not the leak you need to address. also the plastic splash guard makes it difficult to identify leaks easily. My 2003 discovery was leaking for a while the leak was from the auto trans cooler. Check the leak colour, white paper under car, red fluid will be the trans fluid, The power steering fluid in the car is a special fluid (not trans fluid) if the correct fluid would be a greenish colour. Other than this oil leaks can be plentiful.
