This is the procedure for check the fluid level if you have a automatic transmission, I hope this helps.

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). Models with 2.2L engine: To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).

How much transmission fluid goes in a 02 saturn


You only lost a few ounces

You warm the trans up to 180 degrees
or more & check fluid levels as you always
do & add if necessary

Why not change all the fluid while your there

That has to be done every 3 years anyway

You can do it once a year if you like

You do not add to any trans cold
Has to be at 180 or more

2003 Saturn transmission


Do you have a leak? Is there red oily fluid under the car? If not then you just have a defective transmission. As to checking the level that requires a special tool. there is not dipstick.

My 1995 saturn sl2 has a transmission fluid leak while it is in reverse from the bottom and sometimes doesn't want to go into gears right. what does this mean


I think you know that your car is not supposed to
have any leaks. All leaks have to be repaired

You also know that if the trans leaks, it will not
work correctly, as it is now doing, and if it isn't
ruined already it will be soon

You surely have been checking the fluid levels,
knowing your have a leak

If your planning on keeping it,plan on a
trans rebuilt in the near future

When in reverse before it goes it jumps and also at 3 rpm's it jumps then goes


What you're describing is hard shift-shock. Its a symptom of old transmission fluid, or a transmission fluid leak, causing an empty transmission. Don't drive your car til you check the transmission fluid level, and change it if it's dark-looking.

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.

How do you sheck the transmition fluid


02/'03 L200/L300's don't have transmission dipsticks most likely reflecting Saturn's confidence of a leak-free transmission, leaving only a red fill cap on the transmission. The actual method for checking transmission level is a very abnormal method; parking on a level surface, removing the transmission oil level bolt/cap from the transmission, observing whether or not fluid flows out. Excess fluid will flow out automatically establishing the proper level and amount of transmission fluid. Less would mean topping off by pouring some into the top access fill hole and observing if fluid flows out the leveled drain hole until fluid flows out. This would indicate proper levels and replacing the top and access plug is all that's necessary. Messy as compared to the old method. The access bolt will be sized differently from the other bolts holding the transmission sump on. I would assume your '01 L200 is the same. Use regular Dexron ATF red transmission fluid.

Adding transmission fluid to my 2003 saturn vue


the dipstick is located behind the front transmission mount and its held in by a 12mm bolt. you may need to remove the transmission mount to check the fluid. the color of the dipstick is yellow, make sure the car is in park and fully warmed up to operating temerature and on a level surface before checking the fluid.
