Transmission not changing gears

Hi Eddy, Check the fluid level in the box. Select parking brake and put vehicle in 'N', start the engine and with engine running pull out the dip stick. Top up the transmission using the tube where the dipstick is housed. Don't over fill. Regards John

I have a 2004 R2 - CVT fluid is to be changed every 40,000km. I've changed mine once already. Taking the drain plug out of the transmission pan drains 2-3L. New fluid is added to the CVT 'dipstick' tube, which is just behind the radiator with a black plastic head on the dipstick. A local CVT specialist sold me type NS-2 fluid, which has been working well for 12,000km. I also changed the filter on top of the transmission with a WIX 51365 which my autoparts shop found using the OEM filter part number. Hope this helps!

Adding transmission fluid

Add transmission fluid to the same tube you check the transmission fluid level. It will resemble the oil dipstick tube, only it's a larger tube that will accommodate a funnel to add additional fluid. It's important not to overfill the recommended level so try adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is withing the markings on the transmission fluid dipstick.

Where is the dip stick for transmission

There should be a tube coming out of the transmission with the dipstick in it. But I have heard on some newer cars (don't know about yours-check with the dealer), that they don't even have a fluid level dipstick. How crazy is that??

How to check transmission fluid on 2008 dodge nitro

These other posts have nothing to do with anything. One tells you how to change the fluid in an old manual transmission, the other tells you how to change your oil. And what neutral has to do with anything... I just don't know. To check the fluid in your Dodge Nitro (regardless of year) is going to be a tad difficult if the answer doesn't slap you in the face as soon as you open the hood. This vehicle has a "sealed transmission" with the fill tube plugged with a little cap that states "Dealer Use Only" or something to that effect. What does this mean? Nothing. They don't give you a dipstick, just that stupid plug, and call it "sealed" to scare everyone away from trying to service their own vehicle in any capacity. All you need to do is purchase a generic dipstick at the auto store, or do what I did and make your own (I made mine from a CLEAN strip of leftover pvc siding, but any CLEAN, FIRM, and NARROW piece of material will do. Something that doesn't break easily is a big plus, since trying to fish things out of the tube is not fun. All you need to do is insert your dipstick or home-made dipstick until it hits bottom or cant go in anymore. All you need to know is how far down the fluid level is from the top of the tube. By marking the top of the fill tube, and the fluid level (with trans cold) you have made a dipstick. Or, if you bought one at the auto store, just make your own mark for the fluid level.
The transmission fluid drain procedure is the same as most other automatic trans. vehicles: pull the 20 or so bolts out of the trans pan (one will be longer than the others and probably have a thread locker, so pay attention to what hole this one comes out of... you'll be thankful when you put the pan back on). Drop the pan, remove the filter and the drain plug (under the pan) to drain the rest of the fluid. Put the plug back in and tighten it, then put the new filter in. After CAREFULLY scraping off the old gasket (do NOT scratch the surface up, sand it, or do anything like that) put the new gasket on with the pan. Get all the screws started before you tighten any of them up, and make sure you put the long screw back where it belongs, with a LITTLE high-temperature thread locker on it. Tighten everything up then get out from under your Nitro. Oh, and SAVE THE FLUID!! Put it into your new trans. fluid bottles as you put the new fluid in the truck. The amount you have taken out should be very close to the amount you are putting in. If not, you will want to double check the level with the home-made dipstick to verify you have enough fluid once you refill.
Now go on over to the "anti-dipstick" (fill tube) it will be the only long fill tube sticking up near your firewall. If there is any doubt, its the only one without a dipstick and it is located just to the left of the motor a few inches forward of the firewall. At this point, you should add all but 1 or or 2 quarts of the 8.8 quart capacity of the 3.7 L Nitro... if you have the 4.0L or the tow package like I do, you will need more. Do yourself a favor and use a nice short funnel and make sure its clean. Now... Check the level. If you're short, keep adding until you're at the proper level. Then, start the vehicle and shift through each gear (staying in each gear for about 3-4 seconds) then work back to Park the same way and shut the vehicle off before anything heats up. Check the fluid level again... you may have to add more. If you need to add more do so.
Finally, put the stupid plug back in the fill hole and keep your dipstick in your trunk so you can check the level once you get to work (or the mall, or the grocery store). Just make sure you check it again after your first foray into the outside world, and have some fluid on standby in the event the vehicle needs more.
Have fun and good luck. If you manage to mess this up, its not my fault, and if you can't figure out how to do any of these things, or don't know what I was talking about with some of these things, then you probably should just have your vehicle serviced by a professional anyway. ;)

Can anybody let me know how much trans fluid is needed when changing the filter on a 1999 f-450 trans ?

I've done this alone. It's easier with a second person, and sometimes helps prevent spills. Things you need to get started: The E4OD and 4R100 transmission system holds almost 18 quarts of ATF, and you must waste a couple of quarts to be sure you get it all purged and replaced, so buy 20 quarts of MERCON ATF [For the 4R100, use MERCON V]. You may use either conventional or synthetic, as long as it meets the above requirements.The 4R70W transmission system holds about 14 quarts of ATF. The 4R70W uses MERCON V, and the MERCON V can be used on older 4R70W transmissions that were factory filled with MERCON. I replace the transmission filter every other fluid change. Note that Ford does not recommend ever changing the filter. I've opened filters with over 300,000 miles that were not even close to being clogged. Don't buy a new pan gasket. The original is reusable. A 10 foot length of clear tubing and one hose clamp, sized to fit over your cooler hose. There have been different size cooler lines over the years, so check before buying! If you don't already have a special funnel that fits into the transmission dipstick tube, then you will need one of those, too.If you are changing the filter, drain the pan if your pan has a drain plug. If you are not changing the filter, jump to step 4. If you don't have a drain plug, go to step 4 to pump out the pan, preventing an ATF shower! Return here after step 4 and one pass through step 5a. Remove the pan and clean the pan and gasket, including the magnet on the bottom of the pan. Fuzz on the magnet is normal, that's why it is there!Change the filter. It just pulls out, there are no bolts that hold it. It is held in place by the pan. Make sure that the O-ring is removed, too. Sometimes it does not come out with the filter.Replace the pan, using the reusable gasket. At this point you can drain the torque converter. Some people think it is necessary, but I don't. Running the engine in the next steps will pump the fluid out of the torque converter. If your transmission was built after August 2001, you don't have a drain plug in the torque converter.To drain the torque converter remove the shield (or the rubber plug in some models) and turn the flywheel until you see the drain plug. If you also drain the torque converter, then the old ATF will not come out the return line until after the torque converter has filled.If you drained the pan, pour new ATF into the filler [dipstick] tube until you have added about as much as you earlier drained from the pan. At this point overfilling by no more than one quart won't hurt anything.Disconnect the transmission-fluid return line at the transmission - from where the ATF returns to the transmission from the cooler. This is the line towards the rear of the transmission. Clamp the clear tubing over the line that you removed from the transmission. This is where the fluid comes out.This is where the second person comes in handy. One person starts the engine, while the other holds the line over the drain bucket. A clothes pin can replace the person holding the line in the bucket. Run the engine until you see some air in the clear tubing. As soon as you see air shut off the engine. Refill through the dipstick tube with the same amount as you just pumped out.NOTE: If you drained the pan and the torque converter, fluid will not run out until you fill the pan a second time. Run the engine for 30 seconds, then stop and add six more quarts.Repeat step 5 until you have added 19 quarts with of new ATF to the system with an E4OD or 4R100. Repeat until you have added 13 quarts with the 4R70W.At least one time while the engine is running move the shifter through each position from P to 1, pausing about 5 seconds at each position. This will change some fluid that would otherwise be trapped in the valve body, accumulators, and clutches.Remove the clear line and reconnect the cooler line to the transmission.Check the fluid level and use the last quart to top off.Properly dispose of the used transmission fluid. Congratulate yourself! And your engine starter/killer person.

Where do you pour transmission fluid in for 1998 Chevy Blazer

There's a red handled dip stick located on the rear of passenger's side of the engine, this is the place you put in the fluid and check the level. A small long necked funnel helps, be carful not to overfill it as doing so may cause a major leak from over pressurization.

Can't find where to add transmission fluid in a 2006 all wheel drive equinox

I am unfamiliar with exact car, however, It is not unusual for transmission oil to be put in via the the transmission dip stick tube - do not confuse it with the engine oil dip stick tube. Do it slowly and make sure you dont over fill or you will eventutally blow your transmission box seals or worse. Let the oil settle before checking levels too because it is easy to misread the dip stick when you have used the dip stick tube to fill oil in.

Where is the fill plug you remove to add transmission fluid to a 6 cylinder automatic transmission

From what I know... there isnt a "plug" for the transmission fluid. You use the transmission dipstick to add fluid into the tube. Simply place the opening of the container of fluid against the dipstick and pour slowly.. the fluid should run down the dipstick into the tube. good luck
