There is a dipstick located with the transmission. Sometimes it is of a different colour. U will have to pull it out to check the oil level. If u do need oil, the dipstick hole is exactly where the oil has to be poured into. A funnel will have to be used to do such because the hole is very small

My 2008 Chevy HHR shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and will not go into overdrive


The first thing I'd check is the level of the transmission fluid. Make sure the vehicle is level, and is up to normal operating temperature. Check It while it is running. If it's low, there's your problem. If it's okay, then you may need to change the transmission fluid and filter. The transmission filter is similar to a filter on an A/C unit. Like a screen to catch the junk in the fluid. It's located inside the transmission pan on the bottom of the vehicle. If you do it yourself, make sure you use the right type of transmission fluid. Filters and fluid are relatively inexpensive to replace.
With all of that being said, all of that information was for an automatic transmission. Not for a standard transmission. If your transmission fluid level is okay, and doesn't need changing. Take heart, that doesn't mean you're looking at a complete transmission replacement either.

How do i add transmission fluid to my 2006 750Li?


Typically you pour it down the tranmsission's dip stick tube.) Use an appropriate funnel for the purpose. Be sure to follow the instructions in the owner's manual for how to measure transmission fluid level before you proceed. Normally you should not have to add fluid as it is not consumed.

My 2006 hhr has a rattle when shifting in automatic transmission


What you are hearing is referred to as "chatter," and is a first warning of transmission trouble. If your vehicle has over 50,000 miles, and the transmission fluid and filter have never been changed, the fluid likely has lost its viscosity or has become contaminated, and the internal seals in the transmission have begun to leak. Check the fluid: It should be semi-transparent, the color of blood, and should have approximately the viscosity of lightweight lubricating oil. If it is gray, tan, dark brown, watery, or if it has the odor of kerosene, it bad. Eventually, the transmission will fail.
You may start by having a transmission "service" performed, where they will replace the fluid and filter/screen. If that does not eliminate the chatter, it may be time to consider having your transmission rebuilt.

Where do you add transmission fluid for a 2007 chevy hhr


Chevrolet recommends that the transmission fluid be changed every 50,000 miles, but Chevy intended the transmission to be serviced only by authorized repair shops. For this reason, the HHR does not feature a transmission fluid dipstick. However, the HHR's transmission fluid can still be checked without exotic tools.

It is important to check the fluid level only after the fluid has circulated throughout the transmission by shifting through the gears. Failing to allow the fluid to circulate will result in a false fluid level reading. Turn the engine on and shift through each of the transmission's gears with the brake pedal depressed and the parking brake applied. The car should be allowed to idle in each gear position for approximately five seconds. Turn the engine off, then climb underneath the passenger's side of the vehicle. A small plug is located on the passenger's side of the transmission. Remove this plug with a wrench. Turn the engine on and observe whether any fluid drips out of the transmission plug's opening. If fluid does begin to drip from the plug opening, the transmission does not require additional fluid. Turn the engine off and install the transmission plug.

If fluid did not begin to drip out of the transmission's plug, transmission fluid must be added. Turn the engine off, then remove the black breather cap from the top of the transmission. The circular breather cap twists into the transmission. Twist the cap in a counterclockwise direction until it detaches from the transmission. Because of the lack of clearance between the breather cap's opening and the bottom of the vehicle, transmission fluid cannot be poured into the breather cap opening. Attach a fluid pump to a quart-sized container of new transmission fluid. Insert the pump's hose into the transmission through the breather cap's opening. Turn the engine on, then actuate the pump until fluid just begins to drip out of the plug's opening on the side of the transmission. Screw the breather cap onto the top of the transmission, then install the plug with a wrench.

My transmission will not shift out of second gear. I've changed the filter for the transmission twice. I also changed the fluid and it hasn't helped. I don't believe that the transmission...


Have you checked to see if the linkage is adjusted correctly? If the linkage is okay, I'm hoping it's gunk stuck inside the valve body or other component.
My old fix,tried and true, is to add one and a half cans of `Sea-Foam' TRANSMISSION TREATMENT to a large transmission(10 qt. capacity or more).
By following the directions on the can and running the ****** thru its paces, it might start working for you. don-ohio

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 do i check and how do i check my 2007 hhr transmission fluid and what kind of fluid does it take


you need to put the car up in the air, it has to be level or you will get an improper reading to the front of the trany, by the inner courner, you will see a bolt, i think it is 7mm start the car, take out the bolt, and if nothing comes out you need to add oil, when it is just dripping put back in the screw to add oil, there is a plastic crew thing on the top of tranny, look good because you can mix it up with other things take the plastic screw thing out and get a funnel with a very long extension and add the oil
