The Ecotec doesn't have a dipstick, and GM doesn't recommend a transmission service until 50,000 miles and only if the car is used under more than normal driving conditions.

My 2004 doesn't have a dip stick. Alot of cars now have no dip stick. Unless you have a leak the book says not to worry about it. I don't like it but that is how it is. The cap to add is located at the lower part of the engine on the right side standing in front of the car

You put the fluid in where the dipstick is but check it often as to not over fill

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

2004 suzuki where is the transmission dipstick


Whoa now, make sure you are adding the correct kind of fluid. Suzuki uses expensive silica based fluid meant for import cars. At the dealer they charge 18.00 a quart. If you mix the wrong fluid in it, you'll ruin your tranny.
It has a 100k 7 year warranty on it, and requires no service for the duration. But adding the wrong fluid could void your warranty.

Where is the plug to fill the tansmission fluid


Automatic transmission?
The transmission dipstick tube is where you add transmission fluid.
Use a medium funnel from your kitchen and buy a new one for your kitchen.... or... AutoZone has a "special" funnel that has a piece of rubber hose attached to the funnel end ($12)

Where is the transmission fluid filler on ford fiesta 1996 auto


You need a medium-sized funnel; or a specially-designed transmission fluid filler funnel with a short hose attached to it (at Auto parts store for $5)... use a medium-sized funnel....

The filler tube is the same as the transmission dipstick tube.
Check the fluid level with the engine running, in park.
before adding fluid, turn off engine.

Insert the funnel into the tansmission dipstick tube, slowly pour in fluid (slowly!)..

In an emergency, you can make a funnel with paper or cardboard or sheet of plastic. ... and maybe duct tape...

Hope this helps!

Need to add transmission fluid to a 2004 Chevy Optra


It is annoying when people automatically assume there is a dipstick and that we are all dipsticks for not knowing. There have been a few cars that have come out on the market in the last ten years or so that have no dipsticks for the automatic transmissions. I also have the same issue with a slow leak from the line coming out of the rad. There is a spot on the front of the transmisson behind the rad hose where you can put in fluid. When you remove this bolt, fluid should come out..if not then you need to add some. To add it jack the front of car and using a funnel add some fluid until it pours out when the car is level. This may take several attempts. If you over fill it just let some drain out into a pan until your at a trickle then put the plug back in. This is the only solution I was able to come across for this. It seems to be a common issue with these cars as it the problem of the lines rusting out and into the radiator making it necessary to replace the lines and rad,
