    Apparently dealt_soul knows nothing about a daewoo lanos.There is no dipstick on the tranny. There is a threaded plug on the front of the tranny approx. 2/3 of the way up from bottom. The owners manual says take to dealer to check level. Ya right. The only dealer within 500 mi. went out of business. I have been told that the 2001 is different than other models.

You do not check your fluid by removing the plug. That is the drain plug thats on the bottom. You pull the dip stick out that under the hood usually around toward the back or the motor. There will be marks on it that has cold mark and hot mark. Let the car warm up engage the emergeny brake, put in drive, check level on dip stick. should be at the top mark that says hot.

    Hmm this is strange. I did some research and it seems that the transmission is sealed. (i feel really dumb now lol) There is no dipstick on that car. Do you have the manual to the car??

    Is the plug located on the bottom back side of the engine??

    Thats about the answer is the dealer, being that the tranny is sealed and there is very few people even will work on them because of this. I would say see how close the fluid level is to the opening of the hole. But if you had no leaks then the fluid level should be fine. Thats all the advice i can give on that one.

Overfill transmission fluid in daewoo lanos...its now hard to get the high gears...what do I do now to solve the problem?

There is fluid level plug at front of motor under the oil cooler lines(11mm bolt accsessed from under car) Im not sure the proper way to check but ive read from other people info supposedly from the manual that at operating temp, car level on stands while running, remove plug if no oil add ,if too mutch let it out till it stops? Ive got same car/motor/ gear box and have just changed auto sump gasket/filter/radiator and am trying to find correct procedure as well. I figured there would be some still in tourque converter so i added about 8 litres(bloke at auto shop looked in manual takes 11.5 litres totally empty), wamed up, loosened plug and at least half srpayed/dribbled out (it blasted out when totally removed) so ive stoped at that and not sure if the right way to be checking with it running as it seems to be pumping out. let me know how you go. They stupid for not making it with a dipstick.

How do you check the Auto Transmission fluid on the 2000 Lanos

The way to check the transmission fluid is like old vehicles, there is a screw in the low part of the transmission in the driver's side but towards the opposed wheel, you have to work under the car and take off the screw. If leaking fluid is good In not, you have to refill.
The Daewoo Lanos needs 12 quarts of Fluid.

Transmission for 2001 daewoo lanos

since it does not have the dip stick, there is a plug on the side of the transmission. Take out the plug and fill it until fluid starts running out, then it is full and insert the plug.

Can't find transmission fluid dipstick in 2001 Daewoo Lanos

the daewoo lanos has no dipstick. The owners manual suggests that you take the car to a dealer to have them check it. Im sure they want you to pay them for frivolous things. Hence daewoo is no longer sold in usa. I wonder why Answer #2 A grey plastic plug with a large screwdriver slot in it located on the top of the transmission box when unscrewed and removed reveals a small dipstick attached to the underside of the plastic plug. This is also where you add any new transmission oil should you drain it or need to top it up.

How do I check ATF in a 2000 daewoo lanos as there is no dipstick.

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). Models with 2.2L engine: To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

Hope this helps,

My 2001 daewoo lanos won't shift out of 1st gear

If you have an auto, you could have low fluid level, or your fluid and filter need to be changed. If a manual, maybe a shift linkage problem.
