    What I did was find the cap which is located to the right and back a bit of the engine labeled "DEX-CVT". I opened that and just looked inside. I could see the bottom of the reservoir but I don't know if I can simply pour new tranny fluid in there...anyone?

You don't have to go to dealer. My local garage changed fluid and filter , added Lucas additive for half the cost of dealer. Change at 50,000 mi.

Unfortunately, There is no Dipstick for the Tranny. Most all of the Foriegn Imports are going with no Dipstick now so that you will have no choice but take it in for Service.

I can't locate where to check the transmission fluid,there's a cap on top of the ****** that says ****** fluid but there's not dip stick


I am at a bit of a loss. Not only do I not know what Saturn you have but this site edits words that should not be edited. (I don't know what a ****** or a ****** is)

Regardless of what Saturn or those words, most the automatics I see (German cars are oddballs)have a tube where the transmission is filled and the dip stick is inside that tube. (may have a red handle) Perhaps your dip stick broke off. Can you look into the tube and see anything? The dip stick is long enough and the tube is deep in the pan where the broke dip stick should not fall all the way into the pan.

Looking for transmision fluid dip stick


Underhood Check
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    I cant find the dip stick for my 2003 v6 saturn vue. Where is it?


    this is a so called "sealed transmission" what does this mean?, there is no dip stick, the fluid level is checked by removing a plug on the tranmission case.

    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

    I can't add transmission fluid to my 2004 saturn vue


    I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.
