Peterc759: Unfortunately, this is a procedure you are not going to be able to do your self. There are not even that many shops out side of the dealers who can do it properly without the proper special tools.
The car must be hooked up to a diagnostic monitor which can read the transmission fluid temperature. Most shops who are up to date probably own the scanner which will plug into the diagnostic port and read that information. BUT, from there the car must be put on a lift or raised up high enough and kept level, to access the transmission filler and drain plug. There is a special tool which is inserted in the transmission through the filler plug "while the engine is running and the transmission fluid has reached a certain temperature. At that point the tool is inserted to take the fluid level reading.
I hope I have answered your question even if it is not the answer you would like to have heard.

Where do you add transmission fluid in 2006 chevy uplander?there is no fluid bbut we can't find where to add more.also we herd weird pulling sound and van started to over heat some.Thank you for your help


Automatic transmition fluid is added through the dip[stick tube. You should use a funnel that is long with a small opening. Auto Parts stores carry funnels just for this purpose. Add small amounts and check the level frequently when adding fluid. the difference between low and full is usually about 1/2 of a quart. If you over fill an automatic its a pain to get the excess fluid out. Check the fluid regularly for a while and add as needed or take it to a mechanic and have them do it.

I CAN NOT FIND THE TRANSMISSION DIP STICK


You are not stupid it does not have a dip-stick.
To check the fluid you have to first have it warmed up.
Then you will see a plug on the tranny pan with an allen screw in the center.
To check the fluid level you have to remove the allen screw and you should have a steady drip.
Here is a pick of what it looks like

If you have to add fluid you will need special tool no 307-437

2006 ford taurus leaked tranny fluid out of dip stick


You need to find out were the fluid is leaking from first...
It may have been because the the dip stick was half way out...
Id just keep an eye on the fluid levels and if it stays the same than that's what it could have been.
Keep us posted!!!
