Google that, its like 10,zillion now.
many cars newer, have no dip stick , which from 50;s to now
served as the filler (fat stick tube, fits a shop funnel.... bla bla...)
but on newer cars they deleted, it and it fill just like a M/T box.

try looking at your tranny, some cars, changed mid year, and no books are correct. but guess what , looking always works
i look i see vent hoses, and 2 cooling lines, and electric harness
and behold, no dip tube. bingo
just a 1 minute glance, and bingo .

SOURCE: I can't find where to check or add transmission

the check/fill plug is located on the left side of the transmission possibly on the right depends on the transmission its about mid way up on the side of transmission to check remove plug and if the gear oil starts to run out just a little its fine if u want to replace the fluid drain the transmission and fill till the fluid just starts to come out of the fill/check plug sight. hope this helps with what u need to do.

2002 Toyota Camry what kind of automatic transmission fluid does this car take

Check tranny fluid level. If at correct point new oil or adding will not correct anomaly. Need tranny pro to resolve issue.

If you need to add a little standard auto transmission fluid will do the trick. Nothing special.

Car starts goes in gear but want move

check transmission fluid. There should be a dipstick under the hood only if it's automatic. If it's a standard, there is a lot more to checking fluid. If there is nothing showing on your dipstick add some through the dipstick tube. Never add fluid though while car is running in gear as it will take off on you when fluid reaches transmission. Add a liter, check again, then follow the proper way to check the fluid level. The proper way will be written on the dipstick itself. It may say check hot in park, or check in neutral, but never add it like that if there is nothing showing on the dipstick.Let me know how you make out

Transmission fluid hose burst, fixed it, add fluid now the car won't move...

Two litres? Unless you are outside the USA, transmission fluid generally comes in quart containers. If you only added 2 quarts, yes, it's very possible the fluid level is low. However, you don't want to add too much. There should be a dip stick for checking fluid level. Run the vehicle until the engine is good a warm, about 15-20 minutes, and then check the fluid level. Add as needed. But remember, don't add too much. Add a little at a time, as you get close to full.

We think 1998 cavalier is low on transmission fluid because of the way the car is acting. how do we even check the trani fluid it has that red plug under the hood and is hard to get to.

You can fill it from there with the engine off access and remove plug you will need a transmission funnel,start the vehicle and add half quart transmission fluid (dextron III) as you remove the funnel you should see fluid at the far bottom just dont fill it to the top just add some if you over fill it it will spew out so a little at a time cansmo_177.gif

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil

  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

How much tranamission fluid does my 1997 sable hold

If you have your owners manual, there is a section containing the capacities for all fluids. You may also simply check your fluid level, with a running motor and warm transmission. If the stick indicates add, start with a 1/4 quart and work your way up. Unless there is a problem with the trans, there is no real reason to ever add fluid unless your are flushing the transmission.

My 1989 ford f250 belt broke and hit my transmission line relaced the belt and fixed the transmission line but Iam unsure of how much fluid to add ?

I am assuming that you lost a lot of fluid when this happened and that nothing is showing on the transmission fluid stick? If so, add fluid a little bit at a time until you see the fluid show up about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch on the stick. At this point you should be safe to start the vehicle, but have at least one - two quarts of transmission fluid ready to go in when you do so. With it running, add fluid until you get to the "Add" mark or the lower little hole in the stick. Stop and let the engine/transmission warm up to operating temperature. Once at temperature you can now adjust the level to the "Full" mark.

My 2003 kia transmission will not shift into next gear at 45mph do u know what it is?

The transmission fluid is the first place to check. The car must be running in park and be slightly warmed up to get an accurate reading. The transmission dipstick is near the big black box near the drivers steering wheel area under the hood. It has a black plastic "stopper" at the top and you pull it straight up while the car is running, wipe the dipstick end off with a paper towel to dry it and then place it back in the tube and pull it out and inspect it. The reddish fluid should be near the "top" little dot or hole in the dipstick a few inches from the bottom of the dipstick where it says 65 degrees. If there's nothing on the stick, you need to add fluid, one pint at time (use for Dexron III automatic transmission fluid) and repeat until the fluid is to the 65 degrees mark. Then the transmission should shift properly. If the fluid is already at the 65 degrees mark before you add anything, you should pay the dealership to diagnose the issue. If the fluid was LOW, you may want to add transmission leak sealer, cross your fingers and save some money for your next transmission (dealership will not fix leaks from transmission seals including plugs in the transmission but they will be happy to sell you a new transmission)

How do i add transmission fluid to my 1996 camry?

If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point

Where is the filler cap for the transmission on a suzuki vitara v6 automatic ?

You add A/T transmission fluid at the same place you check it. 
Same place you check the A/T fluid level. You add fluid at the same location.
