Mine is an 88 cant imagine its different, thereis a plastic tank on the rhs of the trans that has a screw off lid, you will need the car on stands or a hoist level and with the oil at opperating temp you will also need a bottle pump or some type of plunger to fill it the engine must be running and add the fluid slowly allow time for it to be taken into the trans repeat until at the mark and stays there

    Exactly correct. Just remember that if you intend to drain and refill the system, you also need a 17mm allen wrench and make sure the top plug is pulled first, just in case you empty with the bottom plug then can't get the top one out for refilling if that is yur choice. It's all easy, just need a few certified ramps, a bottle and stem/tube to refill into the threaded cap opening or top 17mm plug. Refill with plug, top off with cap opening. EASY!

Yep, just done this on my 99 S4.
Looking at level with engine off it was up to "MAX" but with engine running the resevoir was almost empty! Start engine and shift through gears a couple of times, leave engine running (handbrake on/transmission in Park for safety) and look at level in plastic tank. Top up to "MIN" mark and all will be fine. you may need to do this a couple of times until the fluid level settles, as the other guy said.
Mine took nearly a litre of fluid. (Dexron 2 or 3) and it cured the harsh shifting when cold/slip on 2-3 change when cold.

    Whist your under there, checking the level run a spanner over all the bolts which hold on the bottom plate of the auto Transmission. They will more than likely just need a tweak, mine leaked out over a litre of fluid due to the gasket shrinking in a short space of time and that was the trouble. cheers -- John from Australia

Where to add gear oil to manual 2002 kia sportage


For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid. It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.

Drove fine 4 days ago when last driven however cannot get my manual transmission Porsche 928 to go into any gear even though clutch is depressed all the way? Is this a clutch fluid issue?


It may be. Some models use cable system. Check first the hood if you have a reservoir. This could also mean that you need to replace the clutch disc.

Problem with the 1999 Saturn SW How do you check the transmission fluid


Assuming your vehicle is equipped with an Automatic Transmission, it will have a model MP6 or MP7 Transmission both of which have dipstick tubes. Fluid is checked when the following conditions have been met:
1. Engine is warmed up after having been run 15 minutes.
2. While engine is running, Fear Selector has been moved through all ranges and lastly into park.
3. KOER, remove trans dipstick, wipe clean and fully reinsert.
4. Remove dipstick again, and inspect fluid level on stick. It should be between the FULL HOT Mark and the ADD 1 PT or .5L Marks.
5. If needed, use only Dextron-III Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF)

Mikemike7580@yahoo.com i just bought a 1983 porsche model 928, i need to know where the transmission dipstick is located. and what is the best method for replacing the fluid.


There is no dipstick on these transmissions and refilling must be done from beneath the vehicle on the side of the transmission.

You will need to remove the pan to drain the fluid.

In any event if you have one of these cars I suggest you join one of the Porsche 928 forums where you will get a wealth of helpful information as, I assume you know, these cars are very expensive to maintain properly.

Here is a useful link and covers the transmission fluid. I would not attempt this unless the car was on a hoist.

What kind of transmission fluid should i use


GM now recommends dextron 6 or VI in all automatic transmissions.It is a synthetic transmission fluid that was introduced in 2006.They no longer license or police the making of dextron 3 or III that was originally installed in your car.This is why you now find dextron III / Mercon because manufacturers are now combining the specs of both Ford and GM into one fluid.Dextron VI is compatible with all dextron II and dextron III fluids.It is more expensive because it is synthetic.Runs about $4-$6 a quart. You can still use dextron III but GM states you never know what you are getting.Well hope this helps.

What kind of fluid does my 91 3000gt in the transmission? front wheele drive only automatic. I put in standard fluid and is slipping


Drain al the fluid out and go to the dealer or call to find out what suitable substitute can be used usually dextron/mercron transmission fluid but call to confirm. You must now add fluid and run the car in reverse,drive for about ten minutes, drain the fluid and repeat this procedure one more time, you must purge all the fluid out to ensure you have no more incorrect fluid left in trans.
