I would ask why you want to add fluid? Are you seeing fluid leakage under the vehicle or is it just driving differently all of a sudden? These transmission are designed to have a transmission service done that drops a percentage of the total amount of fluid out, and allows for filter replacement at the same time. Unfortunately, the filling procedure is a little tricky because it involves removing the vent/fill cap from the top of the transmission and then removing the fluid level check plug under the transmission just above where the pan bolts on on the passenger side of the vehicle. Fill up and until fluid comes out the check hole. Not an easy process, but that's it in a nut shell. I would also recommend doing an image search for the diagram if you plan on doing this yourself.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid type and level

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid

I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.

How do I add transmission fluid to a 1999 Ford Expedition


The vehicle should have a dip stick where you can check the transmission fluid, that same place where you pull the trani dip stick out is where you refill it. Remember to keep the vehicle running for a couple minutes before checking the level and do not turn it off, unless you filling it up or adding some fluid. If there is no dip stick then you will most likely have to go to the dealorship and have them take a look, in some cases depeding on model the dip stick will not be there.

Hope this Helps!

Where do you add or check Pontiac Grand Am transmission fluid


THERE SHOULD BE A DIP STICK LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD CLEARLY MARKED TRANSMISSION. TO CHECK YOU NEED THE CAR RUNNING IN PARK OR NEUTRAL AND AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE WICH SHOULD BE AROUND 195 DEGREES. IF THE FLUID IS IN THE ADD CROSS SECTION THEN ADD ACCORDINGLY THE FLUID GOES IN THROUGH THE DIP STICK TUBE SO YOU WILL NEED A FUNNEL! GOOD LUCK

Where do i put transmission fluid


You add fluid through the same pipe that the Dip stick for the transmission is located. Remove the transmission dip stick and insert a funnel in that same pipe and add fluid there. Never add more than about a pint of fluid at a time. Unlike the engine where you typically add a quart at a time when it is at the add mark in the Transmission you will add a pint if it is at the Add mark.

Where do I add transmission fluid for my 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitari?


You'll have two dip sticks under your hood on the engine. One will be for oil the other for tansmission fluid. You can tell you have the transmission because the fluid is a bright redish color where as the oil should be clearish or black, Denpending on your last oil change. The dip sticks are usually on opisit sides or the engine from eachother but could be on the same side. To check your transmission fluid then you need the emergency brake on and the car in neutral and the motor running. On the dip stick there is notches or tiny lines telling you how much is in it. Here;s a very important point to remember. Transmissipon fluid is checked and measured by pints unlike the oil dip stick which is in quarts. So the marks on the dip stick for the tranny will be one pint per mark. To add transmission fluid they sell a skinny long tube funnel that goes directly into the stem that holds the dip stick. You must shut the engine off to add the fluid and restart it in neutral to recheck it. I hope I have been of some service to you and please be kind with your thumbs up for me. good Luck, Raz

How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.


if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.
