I believe these have one of the new "sealed transmissions" You don't check the transmission fluid.

They are a "lifetme transmission" when it's life is up and it breaks you pull it for a new one (or dump the car) Dodge is using allot of these

SOURCE: Where is the transmission dipstick on the Dodge

Some newer cars do not have a dipstick. Usually sealed transmissions do not have to be serviced, and if they do you'll have to have it flushed through the cooler lines.

Sounds like you have a tranny going bad. You can't fill or change fluid in that transmission. Dealer only can fix unless you are a transmission expert. Non serviceable. Sorry

2005 dodge magnum with 2.7 six transmision does not have dip stick to tube for one how do you service to proper level

I assume you are talking about the tranny dipstick. There is none. Most cars built in the 21st century have sealed for life of vehicle, transmissions. Only a dealer can check the fluid level

Transmission fluid level need regular top up and there is no external leak.Fluid color looks white.

If no external leak and the transmission fluid colour looks white, the problem belongs to the automatic gearbox oil cooler. The oil cooler has broke mixing the gearbox oil and coolant causing this milkshake. It's a small radiator core type oil / water heat exchanger. It is cracked inside and transmission oil is mixed with engine coolant. Because the transmission oil pressure is greater than engine coolant pressure, the transmission fluid level drops. See also the coolant colour inside recovery coolant reservoir inder bonnet! It could be like this:

Where is the Transmission fluid dip stick to add transmission fluid for a 2005 dodge Magnum

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!

Disconnected lines to get at the oil filter. saved about 1gallon of fluid but It wont let me put it all back in. There is no radiator cap that I can see. Its a 2006 dodge magnum

not sure exactly what your talkin about but if it engine coolant and there is no radiator cap you will have to put it the plastic engine coolant tank and drive it untill it gets up to running temp then it will pull the fluid it needs into the radiator then you should be able to put the rest in
