Look in the manual youget with the car,you might have to have engine running,maybe not,in park,

Posted on Nov 08, 2014

Testimonial: "I know the manual is the first place to look, but the only reference is to have a dealer do it. The Vers with a CVT transmission is unique and the dipstick is not standard, special Nissan only fluid, and typically computer tested by the dealer for remaining life expectancy of the fluid. not as simple as pull the stick while in drive and find a funnel if it is low. thanks for your effort though"

Where is the dipstick in 2007

I cannot understand which dipstick you do want to know about. If you want to know about the auto transmission, it is Continuous Variable Transmission CVT. It does not have any dipstick on it. To check the CVT oil level do the following:
- Park the car on a level floor.
- Open the Allen head bolt from under the transmission oil pan with 6 mm Hex Allen key.
CAUTION: Always wear safety goggles. Keep your eyes away to avoid the oil getting in.
- If the oil is seen coming out of this hole the level is OK. If not, open a bolt (marked with TC) attached to the upper left side of the transmission with wrench, add original Toyota CVT Fluid TC with part number 08886-02105 printed on the tin.
Thank you for visiting Fixya.

Tranmission has no stick gage to check trans fluid level

it\'s probably a CVT transmission and there is a "special" tool we use to check the oil on those. I have no idea why they don\'t have a dipstick of their own. the tool is just a dipstick.go figure.

I have a 2004 R2 - CVT fluid is to be changed every 40,000km. I've changed mine once already. Taking the drain plug out of the transmission pan drains 2-3L. New fluid is added to the CVT 'dipstick' tube, which is just behind the radiator with a black plastic head on the dipstick. A local CVT specialist sold me type NS-2 fluid, which has been working well for 12,000km. I also changed the filter on top of the transmission with a WIX 51365 which my autoparts shop found using the OEM filter part number. Hope this helps!

What trasmition oil do this car use

Your transmission requires a special fluid. DIA QUEEN CVTF-J1
You can save yourself some time and go directly to the Mitsubishi dealer. You may hear alot of "recommended" replacements for the OEM fluid. With that CVT transmission, I recommend that you stay with OEM fluid.

Good Luck

Where is the trans dipstick for a 05 ford 500 AWD Limited Edition

For the 6 speed auto trans the dipstick is located behind the radiator support, to the left of the air cleaner box. The dipstick is a round yellow plastic towards the bottom of the transmission. The exhaust manifold is slightly above it, so be careful not to burn yourself.

06 Ford Freestyle FWD CVT Fluid Level Measuring (IDLE? or off?)

According to the Ford shop manual, the cvt transmission has a transmission fluid dipstick located on the front of the transmission (drivers side between the radiator and trans. The fluid should be checked with the transmission temp between 190deg F and 198deg F ( I think hot engine covers it) running in park. The fluid should be in the crosshatched area of the dipstick. With the the transmission between 109deg f and 117deg f running in park the fluid should be at the bottom hole of the dipstick. This whole procedure is based on your being able to monitor the transmission fluid temperature. If you have a scan tool that shows you live data and you are able to monitor the temp, good. But if you don't own a scan tool and buying one would cancel out the savings of doing your own trans service................ then if it were me I would top off the fluid at the hot (190-198deg f) temp adding a little at a time until I was just near the top of the crosshatch area. I think logic prevails here. If the manual wants the fluid at the bottom hole with a cool trans then we must assume that when the trans is hot it wont be above the top hole. And I also want to add that if this fluid level was this critical then I would think I would have alot of freestyles going thru my shop with transmission concerns as soon as one sprung the smallest leak.
I really hope this helps you out and good for you for doing your own service, I admire that!
