my guess is you used the wrong dip stick,
i cant watch you mess up. so....no jeep stated a 99 what?
wrangler, Cherokee or grand Cherokee?
so i bet you have an automatic trans, right?
then pulled the dip stick on trans thinking its the engine
or the reverse. bad news if true.
find someone that knows the difference or read the lost operators guide.
and error 2, the stick empty is not bone dry, not ever.
yes real low. so and 1/2 quart at a time , not 3 qt ever.
until the engine stick is at normal..
if this is a transmission, and you put engine oil in there
all hope is lost. and the method is hot running, to add ATF fluids.
unlike the engine method.
my best guess totally BLIND>
most vehicle auto trans are checked while the engine is running and trans is warmed up to normal operating temp. except hondas which are checked with engine off. pull out the dipstick and the fluid level should be somewhere in between the hash marks. if its low just top off a quarter quart at a time and watch the fluid residue on hash mark on the end of dipstick.
ck to see if their is a drain plug on the trans pan or go to the parts store get a suction gun,put out the trans dip stick, and with a long small hose in the dip stick filler pipe and suck out the trans fluid
You will need to check the transmission fluid. There is a dip stick for the trans just under your breather box on the driver side of the car. Start your car and let it warm up before checking the trans fluid. It should show on the stick. It should be the upper mark on the stick. If it is touching it then the fluid is ok and if not you will need to add some fluid.
No dipstick, no fill tube. There is a fill and drain plug on bottom of transmission, both face down, the fill is recessed higher. Not on the side as with manual trns you have seen. Take a short low speed drive to warm fluid as it should be "measured" in it's warm expanded state. Turkey baster or equivalent( old gear oil bottle) to squeeze fluid into hole until runs out. While running. Joy. Might as well use lucas brand trans fluid rejuvenator it comes in a squeeze bottle you can fashion a hose to.Cut nozzle a little smaller than hose and squeeze hose through from inside nozzle.
A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.
If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.
The 4L30E transmission is a "sealed" unit and as such does not have a
dipstick. The only way to check your fluid level is to use the "higher"
of the two drain holes on the bottom of the pan. You *must* do this
while the engine is hot and running, otherwise all the fluid will have
drained to the pan and will come out of the top hole all over you.When
hot, the fluid should come up to the top hole. Stick a finger in, if
you can't feel fluid, use a syphon or hand pump to shoot some up into
it. I would strongly suggest dropping the pan and
replacing the filter if you have over 100k miles. DO NOT have
this trans flushed at a shop as the small galleries are prone to
jamming with the gunk the flush will free up, and will cause the trans
