SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid type and level

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid

SOURCE: local mechanic says they can't check fluid level

"Sealed" means there's no dip stick tube.
The Explorers and Lincoln LS have this also.
It is nothing new and you can still change/flush the fluid as usual.
A special procedure is used to check the fluid level.
Not having the dip stick tube is one less place for dirt to get into the transmission.

1993 nissan sentra will move when you put it in gear but want go when you acelerate

Check the automatic transmission fluid level, if it shows on the dipstick then you have a failed transmission, either due to loss of pressure or worn out clutch plates.

Where do I put the transmission fluid in a Nissan Sentra 2002. Found where to check it but don't see where to put more in!

The fluid goes in where you check the level, you will need a long neck funnel. Never check the fluid level cold, always make sure the transmission is at normal operating temperature, do not overfill, overfilling can ruin the transmission

Where is the correct transmision fluid level in sentra 2006?

With car running and warmed up,pull transmission dipstick wipe clean reinsert and level should be between marks on stick.If stick is dry you are very low and there must be leak.fill to marks and keep car running and look for leak under car if no leak present then drive car a few miles at a time and check level repeatedly.Somtimes tranmission fluid will only leak under heavy driving conditions.If fluid level continues to go down with no leak transmission could be burning trans fluid up,Which is not good.thus you will have to bring to shop.Good luck...Brian

check the fluid level hot, if it is low top it off, if it is not low you will need to replace the reverse clutch pack, this involves overhaul of the transmission Assembly

2003 nissan sentra gxe trouble shifting into 2nd gear on auto and aamco say nothing wrong any suggestions?

Hi. The Nissan has been known to have issues with the stock solenoids that are installed by the factory. The transmission also has a OD shift solenoid as well. I would do two things. ONe, check the fluid level if you can. It shouldn't be caped with a plug but, some models have sealed transmissions. If your model has a dip stick, please check the level of the transmission fluid. If the level is ok, i would drop the pan and check the solenoids to make sure that they are working properly. while the pan is dropped, It will be good to visually inspect the bottom of the pan for metal fragments and discolored fluid.If you see anything not normal like black fluid or metal small fragments, this will not be normal. Although, the shift patterns of this model are quite unusual, I would recommend using the instructions above to make sure that this transmission is not malfunctioning.

please rate and have a great weekend..
