Best advice is to contact the dealer and ask for the type of oil you are to use.

Transmission


Check the transmission fluid when the engine has reached normal operating temperature (at least 5 minutes idleing) check while the engine is on. If fluid is still needed add through the dipstick tube using a funnel. Be careful not to overfill and use fluids recommended in your vehicle's owner's manual.

Need to find where transmisson fluid pan is 2002 mazda 626 trying to change trans fluid & filter


  • If this is a manual then the filter on this transmission is inside the transmission and is not serviceable unless you want to pull the entire transmission and open it. You will have two plugs on the transmission. One right above the other. Pull the top plug FIRST and then the bottom plug and wait for the transmission to drain. After it drains plug the bottom hole and fill the transmission until fluid just barely seeps out the top. Then plug the top hole and this is a transmission flush on this type of transmission.

  • If this is an automatic transmission then the filter is under the transmission pan itself. Drop the pan then the filter. Clean off old gasket and install new gasket. Place new filter in and replace the pan and snug the pan bolts up. Not to tight just snug them good. Then fill the transmission with a couple quarts of fluid and turn the car on, put your foot on the brake and run the car through all gears to fill the pockets. Check fluid level and adjust accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or comments you can leave them right here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I accidently drained the auto trans when changing my oil on a 2001 passat.How do I get the fluid back in the trans?


Right next to the plug that you removed that drained the transmission fluid is another plug, which is used to fill the transmission with fluid. You will need some type of hand pump and a reservoir to hold the transmission fluid. Parts stores sell a small pump that screws onto the top of gallon sized gear lube bottles. This would be ideal, since it has the hoses necessary to transfer the fluid from the reservoir or bottle, to the transmission. Pump fluid into the transmission until a little begins to run out of the fill hole. replace the plug in the transmission and start the engine, let it warm up, then move the gearshift thru all the gears. Put the transmission in neutral and check the fluid level with the dipstick under the hood. If you decide to replace the fluid with fresh fluid, use only fluid designated for your vehicle to avoid damage to the transmission.

I need to add power steering fluid to my 2000 dodge neon. What kind do i need to buy?


Your owner's manual lists the correct fluid. Sometimes it is listed on the P/S fill cap. If you remove all the fluid then use ATF+4 fluid. If you are only topping it off then use ATF+3. This is the same fluid that you use in the Automatic Transmission of your Neon.

Transmission only shifts when aceratated high what is the problem


Sounds like you have low fluid levels in the transmission. I bet that when you do get a shift it really clonks into gear. Too much of that will rip the input shaft off on the splined end. Check the fluid dipstick for the transmission (not the one for the engine oil) and if low top it up to just short of the maximum. Do not use engine oil to top up it needs proper transmission fluid. If the fluid is low check that there are no drips coming from any leaks..sometimes leaks occur around the seal where the speed sender cable enters the transmission casing.

2001 Passport with automatic has no dipstick for transmission, how do I check level and where do I add fluid


If you are looking to check the fluid levels and add transmission fluid you will need to first purchase a fluid pump at your local car repair store. Most run between $10 and 25$. For best results, run your car for a few minutes to bring the fluids to operating temperatures before attempting to add fluid. Be careful of hot surfaces and liquids.
It is difficult to check the level of fluid in the 2001 Honda passport because it lacks a dipstick. Instead, you will have to get underneath the car and check it at the Automatic Transmission fluid pan. This is located approximately below the center of the rear passengers seat on the underside of the car.
To check the fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Use your finger or other object to see if the fluid level is at the same level as the drain plug. This can be difficult to do therefore it may be easier to add fluid until it is full to verify that you are at the correct levels.
To add fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Using the fluid pump, slowly add transmission fluid until it starts to drip out. Replace the bolt. Take care not to over tighten the bolt.

If you want to be thorough, start your car and while your foot is on the brake, run your transmission through the gears slowly. Turn off your car. Remove the fill bolt and check the fluid level again. If it is not full see the previous steps. If your levels are OK, replace the bolt and you are good to go.

How do you sheck the transmition fluid


02/'03 L200/L300's don't have transmission dipsticks most likely reflecting Saturn's confidence of a leak-free transmission, leaving only a red fill cap on the transmission. The actual method for checking transmission level is a very abnormal method; parking on a level surface, removing the transmission oil level bolt/cap from the transmission, observing whether or not fluid flows out. Excess fluid will flow out automatically establishing the proper level and amount of transmission fluid. Less would mean topping off by pouring some into the top access fill hole and observing if fluid flows out the leveled drain hole until fluid flows out. This would indicate proper levels and replacing the top and access plug is all that's necessary. Messy as compared to the old method. The access bolt will be sized differently from the other bolts holding the transmission sump on. I would assume your '01 L200 is the same. Use regular Dexron ATF red transmission fluid.

Where do I add the transmission fluid on a 2004 bmw 545i and how many liters will it take to fill.


The fill drain plug I believe is on the left side of the transmission about 1in above where the oil pan bolts on. I think it is a 7mm allen bolt.If you are topping off the fluid make sure to check the fluid level at the fill hole while the engine temp is still cold. It should trickle out while the engine is in park and running. Make sure to tighten to spec and use approved oil. There should be a label on the transmission pan itself listing the part number for the fluid to use.
