Fluid Fill Reference NOTE: The left side of case is shown. The fill plug is on the right side of the extension housing.

Item Part Number Description 1 — Fluid fill plug (bench) 2 — Fluid level 3 — Fluid drain plug (large) 4 — Fluid level and fill plug (small) 5 — Fluid level tube

  1. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  1. NOTE: It will be necessary to hold the drain plug (larger plug) with a wrench when removing the fluid level indicator plug.
    With the transmission in the PARK position and the engine running, use a 3/16 inch Allen key to remove the fluid level indicator plug.
  1. Allow the fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. When the fluid comes out as a thin stream or a drip, it is at the correct level.

  1. If no fluid comes out of the hole, fluid will need to be added. Continue with this procedure.
  1. Install the special tool into the pan.
  1. Using the special tool, extract approximately one pint of clean automatic transmission fluid from a suitable container.
  1. Using the special tools, fill the transmission with clean automatic transmission fluid.
  1. Remove the special tool.
  1. Allow fluid to drain. Wait approximately one minute. when fluid comes out as a thin stream or drip, the fluid is at correct level. If no fluid drains from the plug, continue adding clean automatic transmission fluid in 1/2-pint increments until fluid starts to drain from the plug.
  1. Remove the special tool from the pan.
  1. Reinstall the fluid level indicator plug.

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there

How do i check the transmision fluid on my 2011 kia sportage

Its not simple, but can be done.Idle the engine for around 15 minutes to get transmission up to temperature. Lift the front of the car and remove the under tray. Locate a filler plug towards the lower edge of the valve body cover. While the engine is idling in Park remove the plug. If fluid runs out there is sufficient fluid. If no fluid runs out, add fluid through the filler until it runs out. This will leave the fluid at a minimum level, to get it to maximum level you must add another 700ml through the breather. Refit the filler plug, switch off the engine, remove the banjo fitting at the top of the cover, and add fluid through this hole. Check for leaks and refit under tray. Lower vehicle to ground

Were do you put more transmisson fluid in a 2011 sedame v6

You add transmission fluid at the same place you check the level. If you do not have a dipstick to check the level it is a sealed for life transmission. There is a way to add fluid but it may be hard to find if the transmission is sealed. Call your local Kia dealer and they can tell you where to add fluid if you can without a special tool.

2002 KIA SPECTRA 1.8 TRANS PROBLEM I, shift to drive this morning car shift fine then drop from 3-2-1- and stop no drive or reverse engine runs fine just lost all gears feels like neutral. did't...

With the motor running and the engine hood UP, stand near the driver's front wheel and look down below where you would add the brake fluid. You will see a black rubber handle. That's the dipstick for the transmission fluid. Remove the dipstick WITH THE CAR RUNNING, wipe the stick and replace it. Pull it out again and see where the fluid is on the stick. If there is no fluid on the stick you need to add at least two quarts of DEXRON III transmission fluid. It takes a special funnel and goes into the transmission where you took the dipstick out. They can help you at the parts store if you need help getting the transmission fluid back to the correct level. i have run my transmission very low many times and adding fluid always puts it back in shape.

If the fluid is okay, turn off the key and look up near the battery. Just below the air filter and battery area near the top of the transmission is a shift lever than controls the different gears that puts the transmission into gear. There's a big cable attached to it. Have someone shift through the gears with the CAR OFF and make sure you can feel that lever moving and you can see the cable pulling the lever into logical click positions. If it is shifting into the positions and you have fluid in the transmission you will need a transmisison shop to look at the car because you may have a bad electronic device that controls the transmisison or some internal transmission failure.

I accidntally drained +/- 2 quarts of transmission fluid from my wifes car. The book says is holds 10.5 quarts. Are we safe to drive it to a dealer to have it trans oil added?

Yes but keep the speed down, and don't pull any thing with it until its topped off. kIa uses a special trans. fluid called red this fluid can't be mixed with any other trans. fluid.

Where do you put the transmission fluid on a 2008 Kia Spectra?

Locate the transmission dipstick. To add transmission fluid, simply remove the dipstick and insert a funnel in tube, then slowly add fluid. Do not overfill, as this will cause the transmission to slip and possibly cause damage.

I've got a 2003 Kia Sorento It felt like the trans was slipping - took it to the mechanic and they replaced the rear U-joints and the carrying bearing (said it wasn't the trans); it helped but it still is...

Please first off - take down the vin number - call the dealer - ask about RECALLS.

Once done - take the car to the dealer - tell them you called about recalls and ask them to just show you how to check your auto trans level. Nothing more. If this continues to slip try adding Royal Purple Transmission fluid - IF your fluid has been changed as scheduled and is current. If not - change the fluid and filter - then add [ as the last quart ] Royal Purple to the Transmission after the change. Only to top off - not to overfill so leave one quart shy of full then add the Royal Purple.
Best of it. 178e9d2.gif
