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.

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.

Where do I check the transmission fluid


Hi, follow the detailed instruction below on how to check the Transmission fluid on your Chevy Cavalier 2001.
  1. Turn the Cavalier on and put it in neutral. Make sure your hand brake is engaged to keep the car from moving while you work on it. Open your car's hood so that you have access to the engine.
  2. Look for your Cavalier's transmission dipstick. It should stick out from the body of the engine, and be clearly labelled as "transmission fluid." Refer to your Cavalier's owner's manual for a diagram of engine parts if you have trouble locating the dipstick.
  3. Pull the dipstick out and clean it off with a rag. Reinsert the dipstick and pull it out again. Check the end of the dipstick for your reading; the transmission level will be measured on the dipstick by labels like "low," "medium" and "high." If your dipstick has no fluid on it, it means that your Cavalier is almost out of transmission fluid and needs more. A low reading also indicates a need to add more fluid. If the fluid is low, add a bottle of transmission fluid, available for purchase at auto supply shops. Add fluid and repeat this process until your dipstick shows a reading of "high" or "full."

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!

    Where is dipstick for transmission on 08 tundra 4.7 liter?


    If it's an Automatic and the engine is mounted Sideways then the dipstick for the transmission is located on the drivers side somewhere near the point where the Engine and Transmission come together or the Front of the transmission. If the motor is mounted in a regular fashion, motor in front then transmission under the car, the Dipstick is located near the firewall at the rear of the motor. If this is a Manual transmission there is no Dipstick.

    IS THERE A TRANSMISSION FLUID DIPSTICK FOR 1988 JEEP CHEROKEE 4X4? i CANNOT FIND IT ANYWHERE... ARGGG


    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.
