Check fluid in auto tranny on 2001 daewoo

For all of you certified mechanics pay close attention!!! One guy says pull dipstick.You bet! Does he think everybody is an idiot? After I say there is a removable plug half way up on the front he says it's a drain plug.Then another certified grease monkey says it's a sealed unit!!! Ya right!! The removable plug was put in there to increase traction!!! All I wanted to know was if the oil should run out when the plug was removed.The owners manual says take to dealer.Where in the USA is there a Daewoo dealer? Forget it. I'll use my own discretion.

How to check transmission fluid

When the engine and transmission are warmed up park the vehicle on level ground. Put the transmission in park and leave the engine running. Open the hood, and look toward the back of the engine. You should see the dip stick with a little pull handle on the top. Pull it out and make sure the fluid level it is in between the lines on the dip stick.
You can also go to an auto parts store, and have them check it for you. Pay close attention to what they do so you can check it yourself the next time.

I don't think there is one. there is a big bolt on side of the housing. you need to get the vehical level and off the ground. top up until oil starts to come out, you will need somthing to catch the oil that comes out. then put the bolt back in.

A backyard mechanic gave my 2001 outback an old change. However he drained the tranny instead, then when replacing the tranny fluid he wrongly put over 3 quarts into the transfer case on the passenger...

To drain the transfer case, you will need to **** out the fluid some, you can get a hand held pump at your local auto store. Then you will need to make sure that you add the proper transfer case fluid, then drain it again, then add the proper amount. Good luck with this, and my suggestion is to make sure that you hire on a mechanic that is certified, Lic, and bonded, or take it to a shop.

your automatic transmission may be extremely low on fluid. check the automatic transmission fluid. go get three quarts at auto parts store type dextron II or equivalent.. make sure you get the right type. open the hood, start looking for the transmission fluid dipstick that it shows in the owners manual. if not it may be listed on the dipstick in the engine compartment. start the car set parking brake and check the dipstick with the car running. pull the dipstick out and wipe it off , replace, take it back out and look at the end of the dipstick. there should be fluid on the dipstick and it should be in between or right at the top line. the tranny fluid goes right in that dipstick hole you pulled the dipstick out of it takes a special funnel, theyre usually red, you can pick that up at the auto parts store too, tell them you need a funnel that will fill up the tranny fluid with a tiny end. theyll know. If theres no fluid showing on the dipstick you can safely add one quart of fluid and then let it run a minute and check fluid again. now fill in smaller increments at a time (1/2 cup) untill the fluid shows in between the lines on the dipstick. put a piece of cardboard under the engine overnight to see if its leaking and where. it may need a new gasket or the tranny cooler lines are leaking, study whats loose on the lines or get a haynes or chilton manual and put a new tranny pan gasket on it. its not too hard , just takes time and patience. if theres tranny fluid already in the car I suggest taking it in to be put on a computer for further diagnosis, but this may get you going.
good luck

You have to take it to a dealer or a trusted mechanic. They will need to pull the tranny pan to drain it and replace the tranny filter also. There is no dipstick. Only a red fill cap on the right side of engine on top of tranny, it has a vent hose attached to it..

I do not have the owner's manual and need to know how to fill the ATF resorvoir.

ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) is added to the transmission through the dipstick tube. First make sure that you are checking the fluid level correctly:

Start the engine and let the engine warm up for a minute or two.
Then pull the dipstick from the ATF dipstick tube and wipe it clean; reinsert it back into the tube, paying close attention that you are inserting it all the way down until the tube is sealed again.
Then remove the dipstick and check the level of fluid on the dipstick, with attention to the fluid level markings on the dipstick.
Do this several different times to make sure you are getting accurate readings, as some transmissions make it difficult to REMOVE fluid, in case of overfilling.
If you DO add any, add just a little at a time, and permit time for the fluid to settle, so you can get accurate readings of the dipstick fluid level.
Constantly recheck to make sure you do not overfill your transmission.

Hope this helps.

I'm assuming that you have an automatic tranny.
Engine must be warm.
Raise the hood.
Get in and shift thougth ALL gears starting with low and go through up to drive, reverse,ect stopping at each selection for a second or two.
Put in park, reomove the tranny dipstick and wipe off.
Insert and remove dipstick again and check the level.
Add fluid through the dipstick holder if more is needed.
Add the fluid very slowly.

Can't find transmission fluid dipstick in 2001 Daewoo Lanos

the daewoo lanos has no dipstick. The owners manual suggests that you take the car to a dealer to have them check it. Im sure they want you to pay them for frivolous things. Hence daewoo is no longer sold in usa. I wonder why Answer #2 A grey plastic plug with a large screwdriver slot in it located on the top of the transmission box when unscrewed and removed reveals a small dipstick attached to the underside of the plastic plug. This is also where you add any new transmission oil should you drain it or need to top it up.

Checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

How doi check fluid level in auto tranny on 2001 daewoo lanos

You do not check your fluid by removing the plug. That is the drain plug thats on the bottom. You pull the dip stick out that under the hood usually around toward the back or the motor. There will be marks on it that has cold mark and hot mark. Let the car warm up engage the emergeny brake, put in drive, check level on dip stick. should be at the top mark that says hot.
