The transmission dipstick is at the rear of the engine. Usually marked with a red color to help you see the top of the Handel.

SOURCE: 2003 Mercedes C180 Compressor AUTO BOX transmission oil check

The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

I have the same problem. on the passenger side under the fender you will have access to the transmission. Remove the cap on the end. You will need to drain the transmission fluid and replace all the gears in the end cap if damaged hopefully they are not and you can just tighten up the nut. What happens is a nut comes loose and backs off the pressure on the bearings and you loose 5th. I removed the entire transmission and opened it up. There is nothing wrong with the other gears, because your problem is with the 5th gear synchronizer assembly. I let mine go too long and I'm having to replace everything. Make sure you put the appropriate torque on the nut and hit it with a hammer to lock it down. This should really be designed with a different method of keeping that nut in place. It's costing me lots of time and now money at the stealership. Good LUCK.

If the fluid is up -
it could be a vacume loss or the shifting module..
The shifting module is what tells it to shift - and it is controled by vacume pressure..

SOURCE: Manual transmission jumps out of 5th gear.

Jumoing out of 5th gear is a problem that this company has known about for years. Also chain tensiors on the 2.2 coming loose both of these Items shaould have been recalls yet Gm and Isuzu just turned there backs and walked away. Their is also a problem with the anti lock brake systems on these trucks you are better off stopping like the flintstones if you have to come to a quick stop. Anti stop is the right name because u anti stopping u best try to hit the ditch lol. The exgust manifoild is a another story I dont know who the fool is that came up with the ideal of putting a spring flange gasget between the maifoild and the exgust pipe but this is a lot of not only noise but work to replace every year if it makes it that long without blowing it out. The chain tensinor will cost a good bit to replace u see when it comes loose it breaks the timing chain which in turns bends valves and then there is the cost of the head having to be redone lol. The bottom half og the motor is great pulling power is great clutch well you will have tyo change it after 65000 miles that along with the slave cycinder lol gas 350 to a tank 390 on the highway which is great for a 18.l5 gallon tank . %th yes it isnt just something a 20.00 is going to fix lol and it wasnt your fault Gm and the other maker did shity work now all these Hombras owners are paying for there mistakes. It will be fine it will last a life time just keep on holding it w3hen u slow down hell im doing it in aqll my trucks now it kind of becomes a habit after a while but better then giving gm anymore of my money 1, exgust flange gasket 2. timnig chain tensioner 3 tranmission 5th gear slipping out. 4 Braking hazard to your health 5th well i will take the 5th i think I have said enough.

Hello, My 1994 BMW 740i is not shifting into 5th gear on automatic mode, it happens after it being driven for while and is warm, when cold it shifts gear till 5th gear normally, when it gets stuck on 4th...

IMO it's more likely that you have the wrong grade of ATF. It's very important to have the correct grade. The following site shows this:
each car manufacturer has recommended grades of Automatic Transmission Fluid, BMW is no exception. the following website for BMWs may bring you more accurate data:
Apparently CTSC is the supplier for BMWs via the web.
Generally auto gearboxes have drain plugs and filler plugs to enable oil change in routine maintenance. But I would definately go back to the garage where you had the last service and ask politely about the grade of ATF used, before considering an 'oil change'.
Good Luck

Transmission oil was low, so we added to fill level and it helped for 1st, and a little in 3rd, but still no 5th gear

Assuming this is a manual shift transmission then 5th has probaly melted due to no lube.5 th gear is smaller on the countershaft and does not dip into the sump as far.So it is the first to loose oil when trans is low.If this is a 5 speed auto like on the 04 up accords and odessy vans then clutches are most likely damaged.Either way you are gonna need transmission repair.Good luck!

Wont go into 5th gear

I am going to assume this is a manual transmission, if it is 5th and reverse are on the same selector set, the only solution is to strip the transmission and check out whats broken.
