My 2005 dodge neon transmission needs oil (manual) I need to know where I can add the oil

Here is a link I stumbled onto. This should be what you need to either carry out the complete drain and fill service or simply add more fluid to a leaking transaxle.

There's some rust on my transmission dip stick, what type of sign could this be? And I had the truck running for over 30 minutes idling, should the transmission fluid level be over the cold level and up...

If you are in Park, and running ... there is little activity in the transmission. I would say you are probably "cold" at this point. On the other hand, if you drive around the block, there is a lot of activity in the transmission and you are probably "hot". I wouldn't add any fluid based on your observation today. I would check it again tomorrow and see what the level is.

Here is a tip: Never add all you think you should at one time. It is a bear to get the fluid out and over filling is worse than being a little low. If you over fill, the tranny will whip the oil up into a frothy mixture, the oil will expand and do little lubricating. Frequently, when this happens, the oil runs out the fill tube onto the hot manifold and there is a fire as a result.

As far as the rust goes ... surface rust on the dip stick isn't much of a concern. It would tell me there is no oil coating on the bare metal. When moisture gets on metal - rust. So, how does the moisture get in to do the rusting? When your transmission is hot, the air inside gets hot and it expands. The extra air escapes out the fill tube and in come cases a breather. When you park, the machinery cools down, the air 'shrinks'. When this happens, 'fresh air' is drawn into the fill tube. Sometimes, the cooler air is heavily laden with moisture ... the moisture condenses onto the metal parts (and onto the oil) causing surface rusting. The water that gathers on the surface of the oil will eventually sink. Next time you go out, the machinery gets hot ... the water evaporates and mostly escapes out the fill tube with the hot air. When you turn the machinery off, ... this process starts all over again.

I hope I have addressed your concerns today, and I hope this makes sense to you. Thanks for your interest in and thanks for your visit.

Just drain the oil. DO NOT FLUSH TRANSMISSIONS especially continuous varible transmissions. thats why they won't garantee there work. replace with specified MUGEN oil. its the only oil designed specificaly for HONDA's, pluse mugen is honda's performance company.

When i acclerate my car it jerks and when i slow down. i dont know if its a vaccum hose or the transmission

Check the transmissio fluid (when hot). Add if low.

If not low, drain the tranny fluid, and drop the tranny pan and look for metal shavings. If there are, you will either need to have the transmission replaced or rebuilt.

If there no metal shavings, add new fluid, and add a quart of Lucas Oil in replacement of 1 quart of tranny fluid. This will help the fluid to stick to the gears and other components in the transmission.

Chances are you have a rod sticking in the tranny. Make sure you purchase a new trannsmission gasket and filter (filter usually comes with gaskets.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Transmission oil level

If it is an automatic, I'm sure you can see the yellow dip stick under the hood, if its a will have to jack the car up, and you will see two bolts on the side of the transmission, some have bolts, some have square holes, and some have allen key bolts, non the less, you will see two of them, one on the side about half way up, and one on the bottom for draining. The purpose of this is that when you take the one off of the side, if no fluid comes out, you can add some until it starts to dribble out, the hole is the full mark for lack of better terms. Hope that helps. If you have the square holes, a socket extension for a ratchet fits great....
