Jack up the front of the car and support with jack stands, then look on either side of the transmission there will be a plug perhaps a hex head or mm bolt head on the side of tranny that is where you add cut off with razor the tip of the gear oil container attach a 8-10 inch length of 5/16 rubber hose with hose clamp to it then remove plug take hose put it inside plug hole and invert container then squeeze container forcing contents into tranny when it oozes out or over flows your full reinsert plug and tighten

I have a 97 Honda Passport,how do u check the transmission fluid?


Okay, this truck doesnt have a normal dip stick to check the fluid in trany,to check the trany fluid level engine must be warm and parked on level ground, being on level ground is important!, next start engine and move slector through all gears and ending in park, put ebrake on and let engine idle, then remove the check plug from the bottom of trany pan, note theres a drain plug and the level plug heres a diagram to help you locate the right plug, remove the plug with engine idling and the fluid should leak out, the fluid will stop when level is correct if the plug is removed and no fluid leaks out then add some until it drips out level hole.johnjohn2_50.gif

Vw jetta 98 revs shoots up after driving for a few kms


You will need to have the trany checked it may be low on fluid, theres a way of checking the fluid, i would have a job check it or if it a standard shift then the clutch may be slipping and need to be replaced but if its automatic trany then i would have the fluid checked i have run into this problem a few times and it was due to a leak a small leak in the trany oil and when the fluid got low the trany would slip and in some cases not shift or move. hope this is helpful, good luck.

Where do you put transmission fluid in 1988 honda accord


If this is a manual trany you need to fill from under the car on the side of the case, if your car has an automatic trany then open the hood and look at the left side of trany it will be behind the radiator fan on the trany way down you will see a dip stick this is where you check the level and fill or add fluid, you add into the same hole as the dip stick goes into, when checking the level of the trany oil make sure the car is on level ground and engine is warm, the dip stick unscrews to remove and when checking the level just put back in hole dont screw down to check level, then remove and it just read near full, if between add and full thats okay, if at add then add a pint go through gear and recheck.

Automatic Transmission 97 metro


Hi:
Specifically, you remove the transmission dipstick and use a narrow funnel to pour transmission fluid in the transmission till it is full. Remember to check your fluid level after the transmission is warmed up, and the car is running, gearshift in Park.

How do i inject the transmission fluid in the transmission


there is a small filler neck in frt. of the trany , with red cap on it. Brake the cap , there will be a plug under.
Proccedure : engine on idle , take of plug at the bottom of trany oil pan(with engine on idle!!!!! , if engine off , fluid will leak out) , use transfering pump to pump oil in to filler neck untill it starts leaking from bottom plug , wiat till it only drips , put bottom plug back in and torque it. Now you can shut engine off and seal filler neck.
Use only approved trany fluid .This trany takes syntetic fluid.

Cant find where to add trans fluid on 97 jetta 5 speed


A standard 5 speed does not have a dip-stick for the trans. You have to get it from underneath the car. There will be 2 fairly large plugs, one on the bottom of the trans and one about 1/4 of the way up the side. The bottom one is to drain it, the top one is to check/fill it. You remove the plug with a 1/2 inch drive rachet(no socket) The fluid should be able to be felt or maybe run out a little when you stick your finger into the hole. Make sure you use what ever the manufactorer recomends for fluid. Some standards use 90w gear oil, some use ATF fluid. If you use the wrong type, you can mess up your trans.

If your thinking that your needing fluid because the trans is slipping, you are wrong, you need to replace your clutch.
