Check your manual, but you may not have one. Quite a few newer cars no longer have dipsticks for the trans fluid.

Transmission dip stick keeps popping out


check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles

I have a 2000 ford taurus with Transmission Fluid coming out of the dip stick. can i fix this myself or do i have to take it in?


There is a transmission vent tube on top of the transmission, & when the vent tube sticks shut, it causes trans fluid to come out of the dipstick (path of least resistance), and/or, the trans pan gasket. This is a common issue w/ the 2000 Taurus. To resolve puncture the trans vent tube.

My car start and don,t move ithink trans down


Check trans fluid on the dip stick if you have alot of silver on the stick then ya your trans is going out. You can probably add lucas transmission fluid and get acouple more hundred miles out of it. I actually drained all my trans fluid and filled it with lucas and went 1100 more miles before it went out all the way.

I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan SE 2.4L 4 cylinder motor. I had the transmission flushed almost 2 years ago and since then have put 12,000 plus miles on it. All I know is you are suppost to check the...


You need to, at the minimum, change the fluid & trans filter. Easy proceedure. With van jacked up & blocked so it won't fall, use a large collection tray under trans pan & remove pan bolts. let oil drain into tray. use screwdriver to pry pan off. clean pan thoroughly & trans matting surface. Remove filter. You may need to adjust low rev band. Check with dealer or parts store for proper clearances. Put new filter on & tighten bolt[s]. Use new gasket & rebolt pan. Use gasket sealer on pan side only. You'll need 4-8 qts. of the proper tranny oil. Fill through trans. filler hole. Start engine & let warm up, check level & don't overfill or you'll have to suction out until level.

No Dip Stick for trans fluid on 98 Kia Sephia!


The transmission fluid needs to be replaced and checked at a transmission shop or the dealer. In the manual is the information you need to when the transmission is due for service to keep your car running 100% and to keep the warranty valid. Good luck and hope this helps.

Transmission works when cold but not when hot.


What you want to check first is the transmission housing vent. If the vent is plugged, air pressure will build in the transmission housing and push fluid out of the dip stick tube.
The vent is located on the top of the transmission housing. You will have to access it from the bottom.

If the vent checks OK, you more than likely have a bad front pump seal that has failed which will involve the removal of the transmission.
Good luck, let me know.
