Where do you add the transmission fluid for a 2010 chrysler town & country on the engine is it where it says dealer only


The automatic transmission dip stick and filler tube have been removed from many later model auto transmissions now so you cannot check fluid levels yourself or add fluid easily to these units.

I assume you have the V6 engine and if you check the engine bay you will find no transmission dip stick and filler tube there. In these cases you have to add fluid by pumping fluid in after removing a filler plug on the case of the transmission from under the vehicle and it needs to be perfectly level when this is done.. There is a specific procedure for this which varies from unit to unit because you need to ensure the transmission is not over filled.

Unless you know what you are doing and use the correct filling procedure this is not a do it yourself task and it is best done with the car perfectly level up on a workshop lift/hoist.

2005 SL55 AMG. 68,000 miles. Just got the car. Issues with transmission. If you floor it, it seems to go into neutral, the engine and tach rev out, and once you are stopped in park, it is fine.


Possible torque converter going bad. The torque converter connects the engine to the transmission through the drive shaft.

Also, check that the auto transmission fluid is topped off. Low fluid can cause the symptom described, as the torque converter is filled and works with auto transmission fluid.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a rebuilt 1992 Mercedes 190e transmission, but now the transmission feels like it's slipping when I hit the accelerator. Do I need to change the transmission fluid? How long does transmission last?...


Maybe not necessarily change the fluid, but check to see if the fluid level is up to spec on the stick. Many times it will just be the fluid level that makes the transmission slip. After checking the fluid level, check under the car to see if you have a leak somewhere because you just may be able to tighten the transmission housing yourself. Generally what happens is that when a major component of the drive train is rebuilt, the gaskets and sealers need to be seated, and after a couple of heat cycles, the gaskets expand and contract, leaving a slight leak in the housing. So maybe try to tighten the bell housing on your transmission. Good luck!!

WHERE IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID CONTAINER LOCATED ON A 2002 C240. IF CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON AND THE GEAR SHIFT WILL NOT COME OUT OF PARK COULD IT BE TRANSMISSION FLUID NEEDED?


Tranmission fluid is inside the transmission with I "dip stick" to pull out and check the fluid level.

Did you step on the brake first?
A lot of cars make you step on brake before you can shift out of park for safety reasons.

Where is the trnsmission cap for clk 320 model


Hi there,

Mercedes have purposely not put a transmission dipstick in their cars...to STOP any unauthorised persons from tampering with transmission fluid levels.

Electronic transmissions are extremely temperamental - if incorrect type, level is too low (or too high), this will accelerate premature wear and tear, not to mention erratic shifting behaviour.

For this reason, only Mercedes service agents have the required workshop tool (ie dipstick) which they insert into a tube in the transmission, to check levels.

If you happen to obtain the correct tool for your own use....please ensure you use only Mercedes specified fluids....and NEVER overfill the transmission case.

Cheers,

Dont know the location for the auto transmission ckeck/fill dipst


Unfortunatly you cannot check the transmission, or add fluid yourself. You have to take it to a dealer, or a transmission specialist. That's not strictly true. The Trooper uses a GM "closed" transmission system. Its possible to do it yourself, but a real pain and requires some kind of pump system to pump in the fluid from below the vehicle. There are 2 filling bolts on the transmission pan, the lower one is the drain, the higher one towards the pan corner is the fill/level plug. You must remove the fill plug and pump fluid into it until it starts to run back out. Run the engine to distribute and warm the fluid, then check the level again, topping up if necessary. Replace the plug using new seal.

Please don't forget to rate!

2003 Mercedes C180 Compressor AUTO BOX transmission oil check


The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.
