    it is a sealed transmision, no dipstick, need to hook up GM scanner to check fluid properly, that is why they sealed it, to keep owners from fooling with it.

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...

I found this after a little research, I don't own any GM products so it came as a surprise to me.

Hope it helps

Transmission dip stick keeps popping out


check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles

No Dip Stick for trans fluid on 98 Kia Sephia!


The transmission fluid needs to be replaced and checked at a transmission shop or the dealer. In the manual is the information you need to when the transmission is due for service to keep your car running 100% and to keep the warranty valid. Good luck and hope this helps.

Where exactly do I locate my transmission plug? I'm use to a dip stick


Like many new cars there is no dip stick, the fluid level can only be checked at the dealer with a scan tool to verify trans fluid temp before checking the level, does it leak?
