Question about Cars & Trucks
I need a transmission dipstick and I don't know wher I can buy one in Australia. I have asked the dealers and they will not give me an answer. They say they don't supply them.
Salisbury wreckers Brisbane may be able to help. Might be hard as they may not want to sell separate to the transmission but the may have a blown transmission they have stripped down.

No there is no tube/dipstick under the hood as the tranmission is in the rear of the car. You need to lift it up level and then check the fluid.
I own a 01 vette as well. Change the fluid 50k the first time and check/replace every 30k after that. Just a standard filter fluid change is fine. No need to flush.

I would want to see that for myself, or get a second opinion. That really sounds suspicious since they claimed there was rust in a box that was mostly filled with oil. And I can't see any logic in paying a lot of money to fix a transmission that is working. Why don't you take it to another shop and ask them to change the transmission oil, and to save the old oil for you to look at. It would be even better to change the oil yourself. Don't tell the dealer what you are doing. The best thing would be to just pick up your car, as is. If it is a scam, they could put some stuff in the transmission if you give them time to do it. In fact, they may have already done that. I can't say it's a scam, but it sounds like it could be if you haven't done anything that would have broken off teeth in the transmission. And if teeth are broken off you should be able to hear it while accelerating at low speed in each gear.

You can get one from a dealer for big $$ or just go to any scrapyard and get one there, really cheap!!! (make sure the trans it came from is a match to yours)
