SOURCE: transmission dip stick

You have to buy one, can possibly get from wrecking yard but first make sure it is the same transmission by calling dealership and asking what years have the same trani.......must be the same because otherwise the length could be different and you would not get correct reading. But you really need one.

SOURCE: 1997 pontiac sunfire no ****** dip stick how much fluid to put in

It will probably be easier to take it to a regular repair shop to have it checked. There is a small bolt that comes out to verify fluid level after it's warmed up and still running. It's too hard to describe where the level plug is located and it can be dangerous to check & fill without experience.

How many quarts of trans fluid does a 2000 ford explorer v6 need


Did you check your trans dip stick? The tranny dip stick usually has a quart low mark. If this is a manual tranny, that is different, you didn't specify automatic or manual tranny?
{Automatic tranny, the spec is for dry fill, only. 10--12.7 quarts . Dry fill means not a drop of tranny fluid in the vehicle.}
You have to check proper fluid level, that is your responsibility. Your owners manual may have some of this info?

Car starts and when you give it gas it wont go any where and the rpm hand goes up and still dont move


This sounds like transmission problems, some of these models do not have a transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid level.
The first step is to see if this car has a dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid will cause this problem also or if there is a leak and fluid leaks low after time until it gets to low and transmission wont move.
if this model does not have a dip stick for the transmission then you will need to take it to a tranny or repair shop and have them check it.

If you have a dip stick and the fluid is full then you may have internal transmission problems and again will need a shop to check it out. Make sure if the fluid is low and you are adding you will need to make sure you are using the correct fluid or damage will occur , the type is written on the stick, look closely and you will see the writing ,

How i can chek the tranmission oil


Let the engine run idle for 5 minutes and then pull the tranny dip stick and make sure that the fluid is at between the low/high, when the tranny gets hot the oil will expand and get to the high mark.

Can't locate tranny dip stick. there is a plug of some sort on top of tranny under exhaust manifold. what is this all about. thinking someone might have broken tube but not sure. any help out there


No the tube is not broken.This is where you add trans fluid.G.M.has eliminated the dip stick.You need a hoist to check the fluid level now.There is a hex bolt on the tail shaft end of the trans that has to be removed with the vehicle running and if fluid comes out when the bolt is removed then the level is good.If not then you add fluid.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Where do I add transmission fluid for my 1999 Suzuki Grand Vitari?


You'll have two dip sticks under your hood on the engine. One will be for oil the other for tansmission fluid. You can tell you have the transmission because the fluid is a bright redish color where as the oil should be clearish or black, Denpending on your last oil change. The dip sticks are usually on opisit sides or the engine from eachother but could be on the same side. To check your transmission fluid then you need the emergency brake on and the car in neutral and the motor running. On the dip stick there is notches or tiny lines telling you how much is in it. Here;s a very important point to remember. Transmissipon fluid is checked and measured by pints unlike the oil dip stick which is in quarts. So the marks on the dip stick for the tranny will be one pint per mark. To add transmission fluid they sell a skinny long tube funnel that goes directly into the stem that holds the dip stick. You must shut the engine off to add the fluid and restart it in neutral to recheck it. I hope I have been of some service to you and please be kind with your thumbs up for me. good Luck, Raz

Smoking auto tranny


I had a similar problem with my ford 1/2 ton pulling a trailer on a grade against the wind on hot day. thought I completely fried the tranny. Let it cool off, continued the trip and drove the truck for years with no more problems. Can't explain how your dip stick was dry however. The dipstick should have been wet with foamed trans oil.

How do you check auto trans fulid with no dip stick


if it has no dipstick on the car anywhere it is what they call a world standard type tranny and will have to be done at a tranny shop or at dealer because the car has to be lifted in the air while running to check and ad fluid.
