Believe it or not, it doesn't have one. It just has a cap with no dipstick over the tranny fluid fill tube. You have to take it to the dealer, or a shop with the "speacial tool" (dipstick) to measure it. Some speculate that this may be due to the fact that Chrysler has had a bad rap for a number of years related to their transmissions. The don't want consumers adding the wrong type of tranny fluid (dextron) to the vehical thereby creating shifting and other issues. Rediculus if you ask me. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Have you checked the fluid level in the transmission? Most likely this will be a dealer job as there is no dipstick in this car.

Where put transmission oil in1999 Ford falcon

Automatic transmission? If it has a transmission dipstick, you use a funnel to pour it in through the dipstick tube, with the dipstick removed. If it has NO transmission dipstick, then there's a refill plug on the side of the transmission.

Manual transmission? It has a refill plug on the side of the transmission.

BE SURE to use the CORRECT transmission fluid for your car and your transmission! If you use the wrong fluid, you'll wreck the transmission.

How to check transmission fluid on 2008 dodge nitro

These other posts have nothing to do with anything. One tells you how to change the fluid in an old manual transmission, the other tells you how to change your oil. And what neutral has to do with anything... I just don't know. To check the fluid in your Dodge Nitro (regardless of year) is going to be a tad difficult if the answer doesn't slap you in the face as soon as you open the hood. This vehicle has a "sealed transmission" with the fill tube plugged with a little cap that states "Dealer Use Only" or something to that effect. What does this mean? Nothing. They don't give you a dipstick, just that stupid plug, and call it "sealed" to scare everyone away from trying to service their own vehicle in any capacity. All you need to do is purchase a generic dipstick at the auto store, or do what I did and make your own (I made mine from a CLEAN strip of leftover pvc siding, but any CLEAN, FIRM, and NARROW piece of material will do. Something that doesn't break easily is a big plus, since trying to fish things out of the tube is not fun. All you need to do is insert your dipstick or home-made dipstick until it hits bottom or cant go in anymore. All you need to know is how far down the fluid level is from the top of the tube. By marking the top of the fill tube, and the fluid level (with trans cold) you have made a dipstick. Or, if you bought one at the auto store, just make your own mark for the fluid level.
The transmission fluid drain procedure is the same as most other automatic trans. vehicles: pull the 20 or so bolts out of the trans pan (one will be longer than the others and probably have a thread locker, so pay attention to what hole this one comes out of... you'll be thankful when you put the pan back on). Drop the pan, remove the filter and the drain plug (under the pan) to drain the rest of the fluid. Put the plug back in and tighten it, then put the new filter in. After CAREFULLY scraping off the old gasket (do NOT scratch the surface up, sand it, or do anything like that) put the new gasket on with the pan. Get all the screws started before you tighten any of them up, and make sure you put the long screw back where it belongs, with a LITTLE high-temperature thread locker on it. Tighten everything up then get out from under your Nitro. Oh, and SAVE THE FLUID!! Put it into your new trans. fluid bottles as you put the new fluid in the truck. The amount you have taken out should be very close to the amount you are putting in. If not, you will want to double check the level with the home-made dipstick to verify you have enough fluid once you refill.
Now go on over to the "anti-dipstick" (fill tube) it will be the only long fill tube sticking up near your firewall. If there is any doubt, its the only one without a dipstick and it is located just to the left of the motor a few inches forward of the firewall. At this point, you should add all but 1 or or 2 quarts of the 8.8 quart capacity of the 3.7 L Nitro... if you have the 4.0L or the tow package like I do, you will need more. Do yourself a favor and use a nice short funnel and make sure its clean. Now... Check the level. If you're short, keep adding until you're at the proper level. Then, start the vehicle and shift through each gear (staying in each gear for about 3-4 seconds) then work back to Park the same way and shut the vehicle off before anything heats up. Check the fluid level again... you may have to add more. If you need to add more do so.
Finally, put the stupid plug back in the fill hole and keep your dipstick in your trunk so you can check the level once you get to work (or the mall, or the grocery store). Just make sure you check it again after your first foray into the outside world, and have some fluid on standby in the event the vehicle needs more.
Have fun and good luck. If you manage to mess this up, its not my fault, and if you can't figure out how to do any of these things, or don't know what I was talking about with some of these things, then you probably should just have your vehicle serviced by a professional anyway. ;)

Where is the dipstick located on a automatic transmission on a 1998 chevy prizm

You will open the hood and pull the transmission dipstick out of the top of the transmission. Wipe the fluid off the dipstick with a rag and then reinsert the dipstick into the transmission. Then, pull the dipstick back out and check the fluid level.

Keep in mind that the dipstick has markings to show you where the low and full points are on the stick.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this free answer).

Where do you put the automatic transmission fluid in

In the same hole the dipstick for the transmission is in. Small funnel works the best to minimize spillage. Also make sure you check the level of the transmission while the vehicle is in park and running and engine hot. Avoid over filling by adding small amounts at a time and re checking.

Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny

This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    How do you properly check the transmission fluid?

    To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:

    emissionwiz_76.jpg If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.

    emissionwiz_77.jpg To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
    1. Pull out the dipstick.

      With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)

    2. Check the fluid.

      Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.

    3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.

      If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!

    does it have an automatic or manual transmission? If it's a manual transmission there is no dipstick. If It's a automatic transmission the dipstick should be located near the firewall of the vehicle where the transmission bolts up to the engine block and usually has a red handle to designate it as the transmission dipstick.
