THERE IS NO DIPSTICK, THERE IS A RED CAP BELOW THE AIR TUBE BETWEEN THE AIR BOX AND THE THROTTLE BODY. UNSCREW IT AND THAT IS WHERE YOU PUT THE FLUID IN. TO CHECK THE FLUID YO NEED TO GET UNDER THE CAR WHILE IT IS ON A LEVEL SURFACE AND REMOVE THE 11MM PLUG (THAT IS JUST UNDER THE PASSENGER SIDE CV AXLE) WHILE THE CAR IS IDLING. FLUID SHOULD DRIBBLE OUT, NOT GUSH OUT.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I believe you have a sealed trans. There is small window on the trans to check level. Not real useful though.

SOURCE: transmission fluid stick

It is possible to check and fill it yourself, its just a pain in the **** and it's all one set of steps. Underneath the vehicle on the bottom of the transmission pan there are two bolts the one that is closest to the ground is the drain bolt. The other is the overfill bolt. Take out the overfill bolt. With a syringe put trans. fluid in until it starts to drip out. Then start the passport and let it get to temperature. (A few minutes) then slowly add more until it starts to drip out again. Put the bolt back in and you're golden.

SOURCE: When and How to check transmission fluid

if it is a manual transmission you have to check it from under the car by opening the fill plug. if fluid starts flowing out your full if not than you need to service it.

if it is an automatic it will be close to the firewall and hard to spot. but it is there. if you have 45,000 miles on it you should have the transmission serviced whether it is an automatic or manual.

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

SOURCE: how do I check the transmission fluid....can not find dipstick.

GM as well as other car manufactures decided we...as vehicle owners....no 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.

Where do i pour transmission fluid


Always check the transmission fluid with the engine hot (after driving) and while the car is idling and in park.

Pour the transmission fluid, using a funnel, into the tube where the transmission dipstick is. The dipstick handle is usually the RED one.

Do not overfill the transmission fluid, as this could cause it to come out into the engine compartment thru the filler/dipstick tube when it becomes hot and potentially catch on fire.

Good luck

How to refill oil in transmission for Dodge caravan 1995 (automatic transmission)?


You refill the transmission through the dip stick tube. Make sure you don't over fill the transmission though, that's just as bad as having low transmission fluid levels.

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.
