SOURCE: how to check transmission fluid in 2000 cavalier

It has a plug in the end of the case by the passenger side cv shaft. Start the engine and remove the plug. Fill the trans thru the fill cap until oil runs from the hole. Let me know if you need more info. The transmission is a 4T40E Right? 4 speed?

Wher do I find the transmission fluid reservoir?


I've never seen a car with a reservoir for the transmission. You have to use a funnel and fill it through the dipstick tube.

I need to check the ATF, and need to know how/where to refill if it is low. I have the '04 Kia Optima LX. Help appreciated greatly. Thanks.


Run the car long enough to fully warm up both the engine and the transmission.

Remove the transmission fluid dipstick, dry it off with a rag, paper towel or napkin. Wait a little (maybe o seconds) for the fluid that was on the tip of the stick as you removed it, and which might have been deposited on the inside walls of the tube the stick goes into to seep back down into the transmission. While you have the stick out and dry, familiarize yourself with the markings on it.

Put the dipstick into the tube, and fully seat it; make sure it is all the way in the dipstick tube.

Pull the stick out, and read the level of the fluid on it.

If transmission fluid is required, pour it into the tube the dipstick goes in.

Where do you find the fill rea for automatic transmission fluid on a 2000 kia sephia? I swear i cannot find the fill area - found the oil, power steering & brake - but not the transmission fluid fill


There is no fill cap. simply use a small enough funnel that will fit in the dipstick tube for where you check the transmission fluid at. Add it directly down the dipstick tube. Make sure when you check it after applying some that your car is running. Also to get accurate reading let it sit a minute so it is not on the side of the stick.

Where do you put the transmission fluid on a 2008 Kia Spectra?


Locate the transmission dipstick. To add transmission fluid, simply remove the dipstick and insert a funnel in tube, then slowly add fluid. Do not overfill, as this will cause the transmission to slip and possibly cause damage.

My 03 Kia Spectra will not go into gear. I want


the fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan located under the car. make sure you buy a transmission filter kit so you can change the filter and gasket. the trans fluid is added to the dipstick tube, where you have located the dipstick.

To fill the transmission fluid, you need a funnel that fits into the dipstick tube, add fluid there. If the fluid is black and smells burnt, that's bad. I would have the fluid changed. These transmissions don't have a filter, probally a bad idea.

I do not know what the exact procedure is that I need to follow in order to check the automatic transmission in my 1998 KIA Sephia. Also how to replenish the fluid after it has been drained


The vehicle should be running, transmission in park. Locate the dipstick, normally near or around the transmission, pull it out and check where the fluid level on the stick is, wipe off the fluid and check level again, to confirm readings. Usally you put the fluid in thru the dipstick tube, a long funnel will help. Watch that you don't over fill the transmission with too much, check level often while refilling.
