1st off your trans doesn't have a dip stick, it is a sealed transmission, to check level you need to have the dealer hook up a scan tool and then verify trans fluid temperature is at at least 175-185 degrees for correct level check, then there is a inspection plug they access on the top of the trans for a level check. The fluid and filter should be changed around 60,000 miles

When should you change transmission fluid on a 2010 chevy equinox 4 cylinder

Our research indicates that your vehicle does not have a transmission fluid dipstick. These types of transmissions are designed to be maintenance free. In order to check the transmission fluid, your vehicle likely has check valve on the bottom of the transmission on the bottom of your car. Your car must be level when the fluid is checked and we therefore recommend having a mechanic with a hydraulic lift or underground bay check your transmission fluid. Any fluid leaks for this type of transmission should be treated by a mechanic.

How to check transmission fluid level in a 2009 Chrysler Town and Country

We check most vehicles in Park position, with the engine running and parking brake set. On vehicles with a dipstick, we must read both sides of the stick. The LOWEST reading is the correct fluid level. If a void or gap shows in the transmission fluid level, the LOWEST reading is the correct reading.

Where do you check the transmission level on a 1995 Polaris 425 Magnum. How do you add fluid?

on any vehicle with an automatic transmission, there are two dip sticks. One to measure oil level, and the other transmission fluid level( typically labled 'check with engine running in park'). To add transmission fluid requires a funnel to introduce fluid via the dip-stick tube.

If you have a manual transmission, then you don't need transmission fluid, you need gear oil, which can be measured at the transmission and added at the same port.

Where is transmission fluid locted in a 1990 mazda protege

I would ask Standard or automatic since the vehicle came with both as an option but it really doesn't matter. The fluid is located in the Transmission itself. If you have an automatic there is a dip stick located near the firewall under the hood you can use to check the fluid level with. If it is a Standard or manual transmission you will have to locate the check fill plug on the transmission under the vehicle to check the fluid level with the end of your finger.

How do i check my 2007 dodge ram 2500 5.9l automatic transmission?

You mean check the fluid?
You will run the vehicle to operating temperature and make sure the transmission has shifted in drive and reverse gears. Once it is at operating temp, you will park on level ground, place the shifter in NEUTRAL and set the parking brake. You may now pop the hood and remove the transmission dipstick, wipe it clean re-insert it into the transmission dipstick tube and pull it out again. Look at the level of the fluid on the stick. Look at both sides of the stick and the lowest level mark on the stick is you transmission fluid level.
When you are checking the transmission take note of the color of the fluid. It should be a reddish pink color and not have a "burnt" smell. If the fluid is turning dark red, orange-ish, or darker the fluid should be changed. Also is the fluid smells burnt or has small metallic particale in it, it should be changed. The mopar ATF does have an odor but it is not offensive or burnt smalling when the fluid is in good condition.

How do I check the transmission fluid....can not find dipstick.

GM as well as other car manufactures decided vehicle longer need to check the trans fluid, so they decided on making transmissions as a sealed unit, which no longer requires a dip stick. I know what your about to say, and I agree.

Transmission fluid

First make sure you need transmission fluid by checking the fluid level. To do this the transmission needs to be warm, in park with the engine running. Pull the dip stick out of the tube and wipe off with a rag or paper towel. Re insert dip stick all the way down and pull dip stick back out. Is the fluid red and is the fluid level in the hatch marks? If so it's ok. If below the min. level mark you will need to add fluid. Use a funnel and stick into the end of the transmission dipstick tube. Add the necessary amount of transmission fluid by pouring it into the funnel. Use ATF-3 fluid and do not overfill. Add a little at a time (like a 1/4 of a quart at a time). Also when checking fluid level be sure vehicle is on level ground.

With vehicle running and fully warmed up Put vehicle on a level surface. Pull out transmission dip stick( normal color of fluid is red/ brownish red in color and dip stick is usually red in color) There is hot level and normal position which are marked by notches in dipstick or grid markings, make sure its at the right level. For Engine old and every thing else vehicle shout be in off position(Engine not running). Good Luck
