Use the level you attained after putting that much fluid in to tell you how much more to add. Start the car, leave it in park with the emergency brake on as you do this. If you are halfway to the cold mark, add another 1/2 quart and check again. (the owner's manual should tell you how much it will hold.) Since trans fluid expands with heat do not overfill. After you get it to the cold mark, run it up the road for 20 minutes and then check it again. You should be at the top of the hot mark.

What can cause my car not to go into gear after the car is warmed up?

Check The Transmission Fluid, Is It Low? Check At Operating Temperature, Is The Fluid In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick? Is It Touching The Dip Stick? If It Is Not On The Dip Stick It May Just Be Low, Or, After You Add Fluid To Top It Off (Get It In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick) And It Still Will Not Go Into Gear Or Move The Vehicle Normally, The Clutches May Be Smoked (Shot, Ruined) Have An Experienced Transmission Mechanic Look At It To Tell For Sure. If You Could Get It To A Trans. Shop By Trailer, They May Take A Quick Look & Tell You If There Is Any Hope. Hope This Helps.

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.

Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

First have the car / truck at operating temperature then ck level within the the range bar on your dip stick, ( looks like a criss cross pattern at the end of dip stick, fluid should be in that range if not add trans fluid as needed maybe 1/2 to 1 qt at a time unless you see no fluid on dip stick add full qt and recheck.

I have a 2002 Avalon w/ a 3.0 liter engine. When I changed the fluid and added 4 quarts the oil after warming up is way above the dip stick line. Did I add too much?

Depends on what the fluid was you changed??? Did you change the oil? How about the filter? 4 qts should not go past the full line. If you left the filter in there, then yo might have too much, the filter holds quite a bit, maybe half qt. The filter needs to be changed with the oil every time, most important, If you go out now, but a filter, take it off, replace it, you roil level should be right. You won't lose anything but what has to come out anyway, too much oil makes a mess in engine. I don't 1/2 qt. will do anything though. It will be gone in a week or 2. Check it out, hope this helps.

2002 Toyota 4-Runner W/100K Miles. The automatic trans. seeems to be sticking going from 2nd to 3rd gear. Trans. fluid has been checked.

Next step if fluid level is ok would be when was last time it was replaced? Change fluid & filter, see if this helps.

Transmision level fluid Baleno esteem 2002 susuki

The proper fluid level is marked on the dip stick. With the engine running and in park, raise the hood and remove the dip stick from the autotrans filler tube. With a clean rag, wipe down the stick and then place the dip stick all the way back in the tube again, and then pull it out once more.
Holding the stick level, you can now read what the fluid level is.

If you add any fluid, do so in small amounts, such as a half a pint at a time.

Do not add fluid with engine running.
