My 2008 Chevy HHR shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and will not go into overdrive


The first thing I'd check is the level of the transmission fluid. Make sure the vehicle is level, and is up to normal operating temperature. Check It while it is running. If it's low, there's your problem. If it's okay, then you may need to change the transmission fluid and filter. The transmission filter is similar to a filter on an A/C unit. Like a screen to catch the junk in the fluid. It's located inside the transmission pan on the bottom of the vehicle. If you do it yourself, make sure you use the right type of transmission fluid. Filters and fluid are relatively inexpensive to replace.
With all of that being said, all of that information was for an automatic transmission. Not for a standard transmission. If your transmission fluid level is okay, and doesn't need changing. Take heart, that doesn't mean you're looking at a complete transmission replacement either.

Where is the drain and fill plug on the transmission of a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle automatic transmission


To drain the fluid just drop the pan and drain it that way. Replace the transmission filter and then reinstall the transmission pan. Find the dip stick tube and fill the fluid through that. I'm not sure what engine/transmission you have, so you'll have to look in your owners manual and see what the amount is.
Measure the fluid you drained and match it to the mount the manual and make sure its close.
When filling the fluid put in all but 1/2 quart. Start the car and get it up to operating temperature. Place the car in neutral and read the fluid on the dip stick, add more fluid if needed.

Good luck

Need to know how to add the transmission fluid


Manual transmission is easy. There is a fill plug on the left axle flange and a drain plug on the bottom (special bit required).

The automatic must be filled while running so it really isn't a DIY.

How many quarts does the 05 pacifica trans take


I have been working on cars for 40 years, however, I take my car to trhe local oil change shop for any needed transmission oil changes. It is messy and if you don't use the correct fluid or the proper amount you will end up paying a lot more than the cost of a transmission service. The entire transmission system should be flushed which requires the proper equipment. If you pull the trans pan and drain the 3 or 4 quarts of oil from the pan you will still leave several more quarts (5-6) of dirty oil in system. Let the professionals do the transmission service.

Just my opinion.

How can i put transmission fluid into my car,how much do i put in


Check the Level of the transmission fluid by pulling the Transmission dip stick. The colour of the dip stick is most likely red in colour and you need to check it with the car's engine running and hot. Pull the dip stick out clean it off and check it again. always check the second reading. 
To fill the transmission, you need to fill it through the Transmission dip stick tube. Yes your going to need a thin funnel and good luck. Do not over fill the transmission. over filling will cause damage to the transmission. 
Best thing is, if you have not done a transmission oil and filter change. Have it done at a Transmission shop and you'll know that the transmission level is fine and have them show you have to check and fill the Transmission. As time goes by and mileage get's high, the fluid will get contaminated and the filter plugged up which would in turn cause a transmission failure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and the type of transmission fluid should be in your manuel or stamped on the dip stick.

How do I put fluid in automatic transmission?


if there is no dipstick on a transmission there is NO need to add fluid. This is called a sealed transmission some BMW have this type of tranny the oil is changed at service intervals that vary from different companies/make and model the average is 24,000-60,00 interval. the oil needs to be measured and pumped into transmission from the bottom of vehicle.
