SOURCE: transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto

VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

It is usually printed on the Transmission dipstick.
Engine warm, engine running, on level ground. Check level on dipstick, shoud be somewhere between add and full. Do not add oil if it is not below the add line.

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

Where can I find the the automatic transmission fluid filler on a 2006 1.4 Honda Jazz and how do I drain off the existing fluid?


If it has a dip stick to check the level it will be around the transmission end of the engine .Accredited auto transmission shops have a suction pump and hose that fits down the dip stick hole to draw out excess oil . Find an accredited transmission shop with experience in your make of car and talk with them to get some idea of what is involved.

Does a honda orthia 4wd have a transmission filter?


As bands and clutch packs deteriorate with usage I would be surprised if there was no filter as it would keep the rubbish out of the close fitting valves.

Laguna ii auto transmission fluid


The gearbox on these models in non serviceable. There is however a dipstick to check the fluid. You may be able to add through the dipstick tube. That's how we did it on old Hondas.

What type of auto-xsmsn fluid. How do you check it. Do you check the fluid level with the car running in Park? What type of fluid Dot3 or ?


Vehicle running, and i park, yes. Use ONLY Honda ATF fluid. This fluid is different than standard auto transmission fluid, and if a not approved fluid it will surely damage the transmission. Ask the Honda dealer for the equivalency in case they dont have it stock. The type my Accord uses is equivalent to Dexron VI , but Honda carries more than one ATF type.

My 1993 Honda accord EX , the transmission quit. auto, no gears forward or reverse.


Check the fluid level. Automatic transmissions won't go into gear without enough fluid. If it's low, you've probably got a leak somewhere that you need to find.

2001 Passport with automatic has no dipstick for transmission, how do I check level and where do I add fluid


If you are looking to check the fluid levels and add transmission fluid you will need to first purchase a fluid pump at your local car repair store. Most run between $10 and 25$. For best results, run your car for a few minutes to bring the fluids to operating temperatures before attempting to add fluid. Be careful of hot surfaces and liquids.
It is difficult to check the level of fluid in the 2001 Honda passport because it lacks a dipstick. Instead, you will have to get underneath the car and check it at the Automatic Transmission fluid pan. This is located approximately below the center of the rear passengers seat on the underside of the car.
To check the fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Use your finger or other object to see if the fluid level is at the same level as the drain plug. This can be difficult to do therefore it may be easier to add fluid until it is full to verify that you are at the correct levels.
To add fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Using the fluid pump, slowly add transmission fluid until it starts to drip out. Replace the bolt. Take care not to over tighten the bolt.

If you want to be thorough, start your car and while your foot is on the brake, run your transmission through the gears slowly. Turn off your car. Remove the fill bolt and check the fluid level again. If it is not full see the previous steps. If your levels are OK, replace the bolt and you are good to go.

How do you check trans fuild on honda passport 2001


Sorry to tell you this, but there is no dipstick. Honda says this in its maintenance materials:
Check automatic transmission fluid level only if leakage is suspected.
Automatic transmission has no dipstick, so fluid level can only be
measured by checking fluid temperature with a PGM Tester and removing
the overfill screw. Refer to the Service Manual for details.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK
