Most transmissions don't have a plug. Get a lart pan. I use a large plastic tub from the department store. loosen the pan bolts and let the fluid drain into the tub. then remove the pan.

SOURCE: finding the transmission dipstick for

Actually your car has no transmission dipstick...

There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level.

You have to fill the oil from the fill cap until it runs out of the bolt hole. Don't ask me why GM did this on a lot of their cars...

SOURCE: I can't find the transmission fluid dipstick on my car.....

there is no dipstick, this is a sealed transmission, GM did this to stop owners from overfilling the trans, the fluid level must be checked by the dealer with a scan tool.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick

You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.

2001 Chevy Malibu hesitates after warming up? It seem more like a jerk or hestitation. When I release the gas, then press again it fine


The hesitation could be caused by your auto transmission. I'd check the fluid level first and smell it for a (strong) burnt odor. The fluid's color should be a sort of transparant reddish color. if the fluid is dark or brown, then there's a good chance of a severe tranny problem.
However, a fluid & filter change could also fix the problem.

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu. and I cant find the transmission dip stick. been told have to check with special tool from underneath. this seems stupid to me there has to be a dipstick from under the hood to...


There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level. Transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out the bolt hole. Typical GM engineering. Just check the owners manual. It should tell you something about this.

Ware to fill transmission fluid


Well I guess you have figured out there is no dipstick. There are two plugs in the rear transmission pan. The bottom plug is for draining and the upper plug is for for filling and checking. Trans must be in park with the engine running and fluid should stream from hole when full.

Where is the dip stick to check the transmision fluid how do you check the transmision fluid?


2005 Chevy Malibu has a sealed transmission with no dipstick, so you can't check the transmission fluid level without getting underneath the car and looking at the transmission itself.

Locate the transmission. Look for a small plug with a hex bolt on the passenger side of the transmission, adjacent to the passenger side front tire.

Start the engine and let it warm up to regular operating temperature. Remove the hex bolt from the plug hole in the side of the transmission with a wrench or socket. If transmission fluid flows freely from the hole, the fluid level is correct. If it barely drips, or no fluid comes out, the transmission fluid level is low.
