When the Air conditioner is turned on, the check engine light will come on dashboard. If the Air conditioner is turned off the light goes off also.


check your level of trans fluid if low fill then check air hole on top of trans and make sure it is unblocked...if they get blocked it will cause your trans to overflow your fluid causing loss and overheating you fluid causing light to come on...the air hole is usually a rubber or plastic tube sticking up at least 8 inches from the top of the trans

1995 ford aspire trans axle fluid level


you should see a plug that looks different from the oil drain plug on the transmission pan, or near the bottom, on the side of the transmission.
remove, drain. You refill through the dipstick tube for trans fluid.
If it's a manual trans, there will be another plug higher up on the trans.
this one will be the fill plug.
Also on the manual trans, some people just remove the shifter and add fluid in the large hole up top.
Youtube and google will be your friend here.

I accidntally drained +/- 2 quarts of transmission fluid from my wifes car. The book says is holds 10.5 quarts. Are we safe to drive it to a dealer to have it trans oil added?


Yes but keep the speed down, and don't pull any thing with it until its topped off. kIa uses a special trans. fluid called red this fluid can't be mixed with any other trans. fluid.

Cant find the trans fluid check plug?


There is no dipstick in this vehicle. When servicing the transmission what you drain is what you put back in the plug on top of the transmission. If the trans. doesn't slip, then you don't add any more fluid. Worked on a few of these. Good luck

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.
