Add it to the tube you pulled the dipstick from.. You will need a funnel
with a small end to fit inside the tube...

Transmission


Check the automatic transmission fluid level. Consider a $100 fluid flush and filter change at a local mechanic. Add $20 B&G synchro shift.

Just looking to add more transmissioin fluid.. not sure where


Underhood Check-check for transmission fluid at the transmission case screwed in with a dipstick. Most GM vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions have such a dipstick.
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    Power steering fluid


    Checking the power steering fluid level at least once a month is a good idea, since as components in the high pressure system wear out, the possibility of leaks increases. Always stay alert for changes in steering wheel operation. If you suddenly find it hard to turn the wheel, check the steering fluid immediately.
    Steps:
    Step 1:Apply the parking brake and place the transmission in "Park" (automatic) or "Neutral" (manual).
    Step 2:Check the level of the steering fluid in the reservoir. If your car is equipped with a see-through plastic tank, compare the level with the markings on the side the container. Other systems are equipped with a dipstick inside a plastic tube, or have a dipstick mounted on the reservoir cap.
    Step 3:Pull the dipstick or remove the reservoir cap, and wipe the dipstick with a clean shop rag. Insert the dipstick or replace the cap and remove it again to check the fluid level.
    Step 4:
    Make sure the level is within the crosshatched area on the dipstick or at the "Full" mark. If necessary, add steering fluid.
    Step 5:
    Place a small funnel or a funnel with a flexible hose on the dipstick tube or reservoir opening to add fluid.
    Hope this helped your troubles!

    How do i check my transmission fluid


    Fluid Level Check

    Remove the automatic transmission dipstick from the tube

    Check the transmission fluid level on the dipstick

    Automatic transmission dipstick marks; the proper level for a hot transmission is within the shaded area

    Check the automatic transmission fluid level at least every 7500 miles (12,000 km). The dipstick can be found in the rear of the engine compartment. The fluid level should be checked only when the transmission is hot (normal operating temperature). The transmission is considered hot after about 15-20 miles (24-32 km) of highway driving.
    Although the transmission should be checked while the fluid is at normal operating temperature, do not check it if it is at the extreme high end of the operating temperature range. Wait at least 30 minutes if you have just be driving the vehicle in ambient temperatures in excess of 90°F (32°C), at highway speeds for a long time, in heavy traffic (especially in hot weather) or have been pulling a trailer.
    1. Park the truck on a level surface with the engine idling, then shift the transmission into Park and firmly set the parking brake.
    2. With your foot on the brake pedal, move the selector through each gear range (pausing for about 3 seconds in each gear), then place it in Park. Allow the engine to run at idle about 3 more minutes.
    When moving the selector through each range, DO NOT race the engine.
    1. With the engine running at a low idle, remove the dipstick, wipe it clean and then reinsert it firmly. Be sure that it has been pushed all the way in, then pause 3 seconds. Remove the dipstick again and check the fluid level while holding it horizontally. The fluid level should be between the upper notch and the FULL HOT line. If the fluid must be checked when it is cool, the level should be between the lower 2 notches.
    Most of the transmissions for the 4.3L engine are equipped with a flip-top handle on the dipstick. To withdraw these, flip the handle upward, then pull the dipstick from the guide.
    1. If the fluid level is low add DEXRON®III automatic transmission fluid. The fluid must be added through the transmission dipstick tube, which is easily accomplished using a funnel. Add fluid gradually, checking the level often as you are filling the transmission. Be extremely careful not to overfill the transmission, as this will cause slippage, seal damage and overheating. Approximately one pint of ATF will raise the fluid level from one notch/line to the other.
    WARNING Always use DEXRON®III ATF. The use of ATF Type F or any other fluid will cause severe damage to the transmission.

    The fluid on the dipstick should always be a bright red color. If it is discolored (brown or black), or smells burnt, serious transmission troubles, probably due to overheating, should be suspected. The transmission should be inspected by a qualified technician to locate the cause of the burnt fluid.
