SOURCE: location of transmission (automatic) dipstick

You DO NOT have one.

There is a small bolt/plug in the transmission above the pan that needs to be removed. The fluid will run out if it's overfilled. The transmission needs to be at room temperature or a little warmer to check the level.


The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.
Inspect:
The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near Room temperature or at 40°C (104°F).
CAUTION: Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe.
The engine must be running when the transaxle fluid level screw is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fluid level screw. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid.
WARNING: Do not turn the engine off with the fluid level screw removed as you can be injured by hot transaxle fluid being expelled out of the fluid check hole.

  1. Let vehicle idle for three to five minutes with accessories off.
  2. Apply brake
  3. Move shift lever through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range.
  4. Place shift lever in Park. Important: Vehicle must be kept level on the hoist.
  5. Raise vehicle on hoist.
  6. Place oil container under fluid level screw.
  7. Remove the fluid level screw with the engine running at idle.
  8. Fluid level should be at the bottom of the fluid check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the fluid check hole when the fluid level screw is removed. If fluid drains through the fluid check hole, this transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, the fluid level is correct and the fluid level screw may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the fluid check hole, the transaxle fluid level may be low. Proceed to ADDING TRANSAXLE FLUID.
  9. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Shut off engine.

Adding Transaxle Fluid:
  1. With the engine running, add fluid at the vent cap location in half liter (1 pint) increments until fluid drains through the fluid check hole. Allow the fluid to finish draining through the fluid check hole.
  2. Install fluid level screw. Tighten 12 N.m (106 lb in)
  3. Lower vehicle

SOURCE: transmission dipstick location

Sorry, I'm just now getting it to you.  The dipstick is located on the passenger side of the car way down at the bottom.  It should have a yellow handle.  It's just to the right and down of the battery.  Let me know if you can't find it still and I will get you a picture somehow.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick

You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.

1996 Ford Ranger automatic transmission check the fluid over full removed month later over full again where is this fluid coming from and I'm not adding fluid to it and on long trips the over drive goes in...


How much "over full"?
(Realize that the fluid level will be slightly higher when the trans and fluid is hot, and lower after when the vehicle has not been running and cold).
If it is only 1/4" (~10mm) overfull, that could account for just normal fluid temperature expansion. Anything greater than that may indicate the following problem.

That said, if the fluid level is significantly higher than normal, there is only one place that can leak "fluid" into the transmission. That would be the rare case where there is a hole in the transmission cooling line which usually connects into the radiator for the engine coolant to cool the transmission fluid passing thru the trans cooling line.
If a hole/crack developed in the trans cooling line inside that location, antifreeze/coolant could leak into the trans line.

Is the trans fluid on the trans dipstick normal colored, or does it appear to be milky with water/coolant intrusion?

Locate transmission filter on 2002 ford escape


The '02 Ford Escape doesn't have a transmission (automatic or manual transaxle) fluid filter or even a fluid pan to house one. The transmission is mounted between the drive axle and intermediate axle, directly below the yellow transmission fluid dipstick. No need to mess with it. Change your trans. fluid at the regular specified mileage. If the fluid on the dipstick is clear, it's good. If reddish or rusty or dark, change asap.

Where is the transmission dipstick located on a 1995 ford aspire?


Depends on if it is Standard or Manual Trans... Manual Trans you need to remove the Speedo Driven gear on the rear of the trans next to the firewall... Should be at or just above the lower bench of the driven gear... Also make sure you use Automatic Trans fluid on both Automatic and Standard Trans... On Automatic Trans it is on the drivers side down below the engine fuse housing... You fill it thru the dipstick tube...

Automatic trans slips 92 ford explorer


I would have the transmission check if you plan on keeping the car a long time. The lucas oil is an additive for the oil. The additive is making the fluid a little heavier and tricking the soleniods or clutch and bands with a different pressures.

This is a temporary fix. The transmission over time is going to start to slip more and more.
