The Cobalt transition is sealed and do not have a place to user/owner-refill the oil. The oil should work fine 50,000 miles and then at the 50M inspection the dealer should check it and refill it if necessary or change it.

My husband changed the transmission fluid in my 2006 mercury Monterey he put in 7 guarts of fluid after wards and its not even showing on the stick does this sound right?

He either added the trans fluid to the engine oil or he is checking the wrong dipstick. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL to see that the trans fluid is not in the engine. If the engine oil is full of trans fluid, do NOT START the car and now you need to change the engine oil and also add the trans fluid to the trans. If engine opil is ok, be sure to find correct dip stick for trans fluid. They should be marked accordingly.

if its the the gear selector is moving and not going into gear ----under hood drivers side under brake mastercylinder is the top of transmission the gear selector cable connection is there check that it hasnt come off,loose or damaged ----=if selector does go into a gear and trans not responding look under drivers side and thru wheel wells for fluid leak ---theirs no dipstick so to check fluid
There is a black cap located on top of the trans almost directly under the brake master cylinder. It's about 2 inches high, 3 inches around. That's where you add the fluid. The checking procedure is as follows: Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified. 104 degrees F.
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
vehicle must be level with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range.
Remove the transmission oil level control plug.
The plug in an 11mm bolt located between the r/s axle seal and the oil pan.
Check the fluid level. The fluid level should be even with the bottom of the threaded plug hole.
If you remove the plug and nothing comes out, add about half a quart at a time until the fluid starts to dribble out. Once it stops, the level is good.this is the procedure to check fluid if their is fluid and problem still persists the transmission module and or internal transmission damage possible which a mechanic {transmission}would need to diagnostic check the following link has multi videos for the cobalt transmission 05 Cobalt Transmission Fill Yahoo Video Search Results

92 honda acord standered ,were on the motor do I add oil for the gears? Or do I even have to?

  1. The gears are in the transmission.. you can add oil to the trans if it is low.. Auto trans uses auto trans fluid. There is a dip stick.
  2. Standard trans you must remove a plug in the side of it to check the fluid.
  3. The engine uses motor oil.. you remove the cap that is attached to the top of the motor.. but first check the oil with the dip stick.

How to fix transmission fluid overflow leak

Only way trans oil is leaking out of overflow is to much oil in the trans in first place. Did you add trans oil? check level when enine is operating temperature and engine idling in level ground. check 3 times to make it sure. If found overfull simply drain to proper level. If oil is in operating range than you may have trans problem that need professional care.

How do you check trans fluid level on 95 audi a6

Those cars have what they call a non sevicable transmision.The only way to make sure it has the proper level is tricky at best.On the bottom of the trany is a plug that is the place to fill the trany to the proper level. You will need to get the fluid to go up the tube into the trany without spilling it.When the trany is full it will start to spill over the tube that you are putting the fluid into and that is the proper level.Keep in mind you need to get something up the tube and over the edge of the tube inside so you don't get a falls reading.Like I said it is very tricky and should be done buy someone that knows thoughs transmitions.If there are no obvious leaks the fluid should be fine.
