    Thanks for the answert, but on a baja, isn't the transmission the same as the front differential?

  • jcarrell Jun 29, 2009

    Tha article you attached is for a manual transmission jeep cherokee. How does this apply to an automatic subaru baja?

  • jcarrell Jun 29, 2009

    I have a 2006 subaru baja with automatic transmission. I need to add fluid but am confused because it appears that the front differential and the transmission are the same. Is this correct? If not, how/where do I add the transmission fluid?

  • jcarrell Jun 29, 2009

    That sounds about right, but my owers manual shows where the transmission fluid dipstick is supposed to be, and it IS there - thats how I know it is low. The owners manuall also says it takes Dexron III fluid, but like I stated earlier, the transmission fluid dipstick and the front differential seem to be checking the same thing so I am worried about putting Dexron into it. Any more tips?

  • jcarrell Jun 29, 2009

    Also, the transmission dipstick has a separate high and low levels for both hot and cold

    I didn't know I gave you a rating, I just reposted the question because as I said, I have an owners manual that says the transmission takes Dexron, but it looks to me like it should be gear oil. I have a dipstick for checking the level of the front differential and it says it is full, so I am still wanting to know how if it is all one unit, why do the two dipsticks have different readings and if I should out the Dexron into the transmaission. Soory if you got some kind of rating, but it never asked me to rate you. Thanks for your help and if you can help clarify, it would be greatly appreciated

The transmission is a "sealed trans" there is no dipstick, there is a fill plug/hole on the top of the trans case but u need the special service tool at Subaru to check the level, u also need a scan tool to verify that the trans fluid temp is at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit before adding any fluid or checking level.. In short this is a dealer service, if u add to much fluid you can destroy the trans.
Why did al,most all the makers of cars do this? to keep customers from overfilling the trans, a leading cause of trans failure and blown seals.

Hi,

Difficulty: 2 wrenches out of five. Although this project doesn't require any special skills above operating a wrench, it does require some special equipment.

Grime factor: 2 rags out of five. There is some oil spillage involved, but my hands were clean enough I didn't really need too much hand cleaner.

Completion time: 10~15 minutes. The process itself doesn't take too long, but you have to do some slow pumping, and that chews up time.

Check the article for pics.

http://www.cherokeeforum.com/showthread.php?t=6703

if you have a search around on the top half of the gearbox, you should find a round bolt bung thing with a square head on it, should fit a socket! I would recomend buying a little hand pump to pump the fluid up in there with so that you dont make as bad of a mess. You would be amazed at how much fluid you can waste with a funnel and trying to get the stuf in there. Its hard enough on a truck where you have some room to roll around, let alone under a subie which i dunno bout you but i can barely get under mine to change the oil without putting it up on little car ramps (and if you put it up on them you better do it under al 4 tires in your case so the tranny stays level since the add plug is also the fill level generally :p good luck) and look in the manual for the location of the plugs if you cant find them yourself Thanks for contacting Fixya

Just looking to add more transmissioin fluid.. not sure where


Underhood Check-check for transmission fluid at the transmission case screwed in with a dipstick. Most GM vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions have such a dipstick.
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg
