SOURCE: where do i put transmission fluid in my 2006 Saturn Vue?

If you have no leaks dont worry about it. Just get it serviced if its time. Alot of cars are this way now. You need to be under the car to drain and fill. My BMW is this way

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Saturn SL 2. The transmission fluid

The Saturn TAAT takes 6.5 quarts when empty and roughly 4.5-5.5 quarts when doing a drain and refill.

The proper way to check the fluid is to take the car on the highway for about 15 miles of highway driving. This will get the transmission up to operating temperature. Idling will do no good for fluid that is just being circulated and needs to get warm.

Then return to your driveway and place the vehicle in park and keep it running. Pop the hood and look for the red dipstick just left of your battery. That is the transmission dipstick. Pull it out and clean it off then quickly put it back in completely and take it back out (do this somewhat rapidly). Get a reading and repeat to get accurate results.

There is no "check plug hole" that diagram is not correct and the 99 S-series does not look like that. There is no "fill cap" all ATF is entered through the dipstick via a funnel.

Next check your shifter cable where it attaches to the top of the transmission. If you look behind your behind directly down towards the ground you can see a half disc shaped black plastic piece. This is the range sensor. This is where the cable attaches to the transmission. If it is loose or incorrectly calibrated to the proper gear then the transmission will not correspond to the correct gear on the shifter inside the car.

How do i check the transmission fluid on my 2001 sc with a 5 speed

The manual tranny has a little red doohickey that usually looks black because it's covered in gunk. Look straight down at the transaxle right below the brake master cylinder, you'll see it. Saturn recommends changing manual transmission fluid at 6,000 miles and then you're set for life. It isn't necessary to change it every 30,000 like an automatic transmission. Your transmission should hold 2.5 quarts of oil.

How do u tell how much transmission fluid goes into the 2000 saturn sl2

It depends on which tranny you have. You either have an MP6, an MP7 or a 4T40E.

The MP6 and MP7 were used on the 1.9L engine.
The 4T40E was used on the 2.2L and the 3.0L

If it's being drained and refilled, the MP6/MP7 holds 4.2 quarts.
The 4T40E holds 7 quarts.

If it's been rebuilt and it's COMPLETELY empty (including torque converter) they hold:
MP6/MP7 = 7.4 quarts
4T40E = 12.9 quarts

If you're just trying to check the level and don't know how much to add, the procedure is to remove the drail plug. The fluid should be level with the bottom of the plug. If no fluid drips out, add fluid until it starts to slowly run out of the drain hole, the tightent the drain hole plug before any more runs out. The fluid will now be at the bottom of the drain hole plug. Keep in mind, this must be done when the transmission is up to at least 104 degrees. Things under there are HOT, so be careful.
