If you find your transmission fluid pan under your vehicle you will find two plugs one will sit a little higher than the other.  The higher one is the fill/check plug and the lower is the drain plug.  It's kinda hard to get fluid in but if you need to put it in you need to get some sort of pump to pump it up into the pan or get a long piece of tubing and attach it to the fluid bottle and have someone hold it outside the car higher than the pan and you can make sure the other end of the tube stays in the fill hole.  You want to fill it until there is a little fluid flowing out.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

I accidently put automatic trans fluid in my power steering reserviour

Transmission fluid and power steering fluid are the one in the same. They are both hydraulic fluid. Only the red dye. Your vehicle will operate fine on transmission fluid in the power steering pump. Just don;t put power steering fluid in your transmission

I have an 1998 chevy s10 automatic.this morning I noticed transmission fluid on the ground I checked and it comes out from a hose on top of the transmission but I don't see where it hook up?

From what I have read elsewhere: There is an overflow hose on top of transmission behind engine which actually is from the transfer case. Fluid will drip down onto exhaust and eventually catch on fire. Check transfer case for being overfull by taking the top fill plug out. If transmission fluid runs out, I believe the transfer case input shaft seal is shot and needs replaced. Mine caught on fire. I was lucky to get fire out before truck burnt to the ground. If you continue to drive vehicle at have something to put out a fire!!!!

Whenever I put the car into reverse it hesitates for about 2 seconds, is there a problem?

If your fluid is getting old in the TRANSMISSION, add one and a half cans of SEA-FOAM TRANSMISSION treatment to it and follow instructions on the can.THEN drain and refill fluid.Not necessary to drain and refill if your fluid in fairly new. don-ohio

My 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue will start, but it won't move. Someone told me it was my transmission that went out, could it be this or something else? Problem happened at 180,000 miles. The mechanic told...

  • I don't know about reasonable. I don't know how they can assess something they have not seen with a price like that unless they are gunning for a full transmission replacement which is shady, in my opinion. Some other possibilities should have been voiced. Yes it could be the transmission needs replaced but there are some things to consider and check first.
  • Have you checked the transmission fluid level yet? Low fluid will butterfly the transmission.
  • Fluid over 50,000 miles needs replaces as well. Don't do this yet unless you get the transmission going or it may be a waste of money. If you get it going again and the miles call for it then flush the transmission fluid.
  • When is the last time you changed the transmission filter and gasket (sold as a kit)? A really clogged filter can inhibit your vehicle like that and make it not drive.
  • Open the hood and look at the transmission linkage. Now have someone get into the car and put their foot on the brake and drop it into gear. Do you see the linkage (on top of the transmission) move back and forth as they switch gears? If not then the linkage is hung up somewhere. If not then the linkage may be fine.

  • These are some things to look at before you go for the new transmission. I might suggest you get the opinion of a transmission shop first or at least the opinion of someone willing to do a little diagnosing first.

  • Hope this helps and good luck to you.

Where do I put the transmission fluid in a Nissan Sentra 2002. Found where to check it but don't see where to put more in!

The fluid goes in where you check the level, you will need a long neck funnel. Never check the fluid level cold, always make sure the transmission is at normal operating temperature, do not overfill, overfilling can ruin the transmission

How can putting green power steering fluid in my car effect it ive been told i should be using red? ford focus 2002 2.0 ive had steering problems for a while and taken it to loads of mechanics and still no...

you should only use the fluid required by the car manufacture as some fluids have friction molecules in them that work with the components that were built to use a friction type fluid system.others don`t have this friction molecule in it to be used by a system that doesn`t require the friction molecule.its like using the wrong transmission fluid in a transmission it will cause transmission problems because of it.and just for your information not all red power steering fluid has the correct properties for a particular application.thats why its important to use the proper fluid for the application.

What type of power steering fluid should i put in my 1997 toyota camry (4 cyldiner). I had an emergency ansd topped it up with STP. thanks Simon Golledge

the normal fluid would be dexron/mercon automatic transmission fluid. I would flush it out as soon as possible with the correct fluid so that you don't ruin the seals in the rack and pump.

How do you put tramission fluid into the car - funnell??

There is a Fill Bolt on top of the transmission and a Drain bolt on the bottom of the transmission. Changing the fluid is simply a matter of taking the drain bolt off, letting it drain, putting the drain bolt back on and then filling it via the fill bolt. If you can't get the fill bolt off you will have to use the transmission dipstick tube to fill it which takes a while and requires some creativity. A drain and refill will probably take about 3 quarts of ATF. Make sure you buy the Honda Z1 ATF from a dealer because in my experience honda transmission just don't work right with anything else.
