SOURCE: checking fluid level 2008 saturn vue transmission

  • Step 1 Check the outside temperature. Start the vehicle. Drive at a normal pace for 15 minutes if the outside temperature is above 50 degrees. If the outside temperature is below 50 degrees, drive for an addition 10 minutes.
  • Step 2
  • Park the vehicle in a safe location on a level surface. Place the gear selector in the Park position. Apply the parking brake. Leave the engine running.
  • Step 3 Place your foot on the brake pedal and apply pressure. Move the gear shift lever through each gear pausing 3-4 seconds at each location. Return the gear shift lever to the Park position.
  • Step 4 Allow the engine to run at idle for 3-5 minutes. With the engine still running, pull back on the hood release lever located under the dash to the left of the driver’s side. Lift the hood to its fully opened position.
  • Step 5 Locate the Automatic Transaxle fluid dipstick near the back of the engine. It will have a red loop handle. Grasp the red loop handle and pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 6

  • Hello, a sidenote on how new your car is I would not worry about checking your transaxle fluid at the current time. You do the above following information to check your fluid and a good rule of thumb is to not work under a car while it's running. You can check the level by the old forefinger or pinky trick and if you can feel the fluid in the transaxle with your finger the level is fine. I would highly recommend however to check your fluid with your dipstick. If your vehicle does not have one you will have to run through the steps above and check the fluid with a mirror so you do not burn your fingers. I hopes this information solves your problem. Also a sidenote, dealerships have recalled your vehicle for a transaxle leak if yours is leaking do the check above and tighten the fill plug to a torque specification which can be found in a Haynes or Chilton Auto Repair Manual. If your vehicle is under warranty I would have your dealership correct this maintenance issue for you.
    Wipe the dipstick clean with the rag or paper towel. Insert the dipstick back into the reservoir. Wait 3-5 seconds. Pull the dipstick straight out.
  • Step 7 Observe both sides of the dipstick. Read the side with the lower level of fluid on the dipstick. If the fluid is in the crosshatched area the level is acceptable. Reinsert the dipstick into the reservoir and close the hood. If the level is below the crosshatched area, more fluid should be added to the automatic transaxle.

    Replaced passat side marker light. Now it does not fit tight.

    Is it the bulb that does not fit tight...or the socket is loose in the bezel? You can carefully (with needle nose pliers and/or small screwdriver) bend the inside tabs of the socket for a tighter fit...also be sure you are using bulb lubricant to properly seal the bulb in the socket...Both fits are imperitive to new bulb life, and moisture proofing your marker light. Be sure you have not mis-placed a rubber seal that goes around the socket to assure the marker light stays dry. You can make a replacement gasket for the seal by using a thin piece of (bicyle innertube) trace around socket for new o-ring seal, and cut out with scissors. Hope this helps.

    Replacing a turn signal bulb....Baffled...Thanks


    Please do not be baffled. To replace the turn signal bulb on Your car is quite simple, all You need to do is to get a screwdriver and follow the steps below:
    1. Open the hood and locate the mounting screws for the outboard marker-light assembly just above the light. Remove the screws with a Phillips screwdriver, then remove the assembly, setting it aside for now.
    2. Locate the two mounting screws on top of the turn-signal light assembly under the side-marker lens. Remove the two screws with a Phillips screwdriver, then set the screws aside. Slide the turn signal out and locate the socket on the back of the assembly.
    3. Rotate the bulb socket counterclockwise and pull the socket out of the assembly. Pull the bulb straight out of the socket and discard it. Install a new bulb into the socket, pushing it in until is seats. Position the socket back into the rear of the light assembly, turn it clockwise to lock it in place, then slide the assembly back into the front of the Jeep.
    4. Install the mounting bolts that secure the turn-signal light assembly, tightening the screws with a Phillips-head screwdriver. Position the side marker-light assembly to the side of the Jeep and install the retaining bolts.
    5. Tighten the retaining bolts for the side-marker lights with a Phillips screwdriver, then close the hood. Test the repair by turning the lights on and visually verify that the light is working..
    Hope this helped. Thank You for using FixYa!!!

    How to change side marker bulb in 1997 altima


    The marker lights are removed by depressing the tab (arrow) with a thin bladed tool. Take care not to scratch the paint

    1. Disengage the bulb and socket assembly from the lens housing.
    2. Gently grasp the light bulb and pull it straight out of the socket.
    To install:
    1. Before installing the light bulb into the socket, ensure that all electrical contact surfaces are free of corrosion or dirt.
    2. Line up the base of the light bulb with the socket, then insert the light bulb into the socket until it is fully seated.
    3. To ensure that the replacement bulb functions properly, activate the applicable switch to illuminate the bulb which was just replaced. If the replacement light bulb does not illuminate, either it too is faulty or there is a problem in the bulb circuit or switch. Correct as necessary.
    4. Install the socket and bulb assembly into the lens housing.

    My break light isn't working.

    Is it just one brake light? If so, check the socket where the bulb goes and check for corrosion. If it's both brake lights, my answer is different, so let me know.
