Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
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.

I have a 97 volvo s70. I found a dispstick for the transmission fluid (100% positive as it says 'transmission fluid on it) but cannot find where to actually fill it.

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.

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.

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

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.
