SOURCE: Check auto trans fluid level in 2008 Yaris

I don't know how many models this affects, but I had heard that some manufacturers are no longer putting in a dipstick to check automatic transmission fluid. For example, check the "Tips and Warnings" box (lower center of page) at this web site. Your car may be one of those affected. You can check with a Toyota dealer to be sure.

VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

Sound like you're going to need to drop the transmission pan so you can replace the filter along with fresh transmission fluid. I had a problem like that many years ago, this correct the problem... I also know that the throttle positioning sensor will also cause transmission shifting problems. I would start with the filter change then go from there... Good luck.

SOURCE: how do i check the transmission fluid level on a

There should be a plug in the transmission on the side. You need enough room to pull the plug. You then fill it until fluid comes out. I have a 1985 jetta and the book tells me once that is full then add more ( I do nor recall how much more and it is not a lot) where the speedometer goes into the transmission. I would call the dealer for how much more should be added if any.

1998 Jag xj8l lost reverse, can not find where to check auto-trans fluid level


There is no dipstick on your tranmission. There is a fill plug that needs to be removed to check the level once the trans fluid temp reaches 30-40 degrees C. When the fluid is full it will drip out of that fill plug. The fill plug is the 8mm hex on the passenger rear of the trans case.

I replaced the trans in my 1991 ddge stealth es and trans fluid came out where do i putit back in at?


You add trans fluid through the trans dipstick tube (NOT the engine oil dipstick). Check your owners manual for the proper method to test the level, most cars lately you check the level with the trans fully warm, in Park, engine running, parked on a level surface. (Set the parking brake, block the wheels.) You will need a long funnel, available at any auto parts store. Do NOT overfill the transmission, as this will cause damage to it.
Use the correct type of trans fluid, check your owners manual.

Where do I topup the auto transmission fluid


The dipstick for you car is the only thing I cannot remember.It will be to the back part of the motor and there is 2 in the engine bay.Its the one that is most probably towards the side.To check the trans oil level you warm the car up,park it and put the gears through all the gears and end up in nuetral.Now check the level.If it needs fluid,you fill it through the dipstick tube.SlowlyThe trans fluid bottles that you buy come with a tube to help fill the trans.Hope this helps

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK
