SOURCE: Transmission fluid dipstick on 2001 Corvette?

Hi,

No there is no tube/dipstick under the hood as the tranmission is in the rear of the car. You need to lift it up level and then check the fluid.

I own a 01 vette as well. Change the fluid 50k the first time and check/replace every 30k after that. Just a standard filter fluid change is fine. No need to flush.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

SOURCE: dipstick for transmission fluid

There is no transmission dip stick... it is a sealed system and no service is necessary. If it's leaking, you'll need to have the seal replaced.

I have a 1999 GMC Suburban 1500 that started having front end popping/clicking yesterday. Tonight went to back into my parking spot, pulled forward to adjust and it did not move? I can only pull it forward...


Not CV. Red means transmission fluid. On front frame probably means you have a transmission cooler which is a smaller separate radiator that keeps the transmission fluid cool. That's probably where the leak is or the line leading to it. Check your transmission fluid (it has a dipstick) and make sure it shows at the proper level on that dipstick. Add transmission fluid by pouring into same tube dipstick is in. Drive to nearest shop and repair leak.

If there is inadequate of transmission fluid in my 2000 740iL will it move if I shift it to drive gear? Where is the transmission fluid hole in order to add some fluid?


Hi there,

Transmission Fluid is the lifeblood of your auto and considered to be the one of the most critical components for a good working transmission, as the chemical makeup & viscosity of the fluid helps determine correct pressure and shifting. For this reason, use only BMW specified fluid - DO NOT use any non-approved fluid.

Measuring correct transmission fluid level is done after the engine/trans has WARMED UP.

If you measured your transmission fluid level using a dipstick, then you generally add BMW spec fluid through the same tube as the dipstick. CAUTION: never overfill the transmission, as excess fluid will cause 'foaming' and this usually creates further shifting issues.

If you have determined the fluid is low, the trans components will still function, but any attempt to operate the transmission in DRIVE with inadequate fluid, will likely cause unneccessary damage.

If there is no dipstick present, then this model BMW (much like the Merc's) denies you the ability to change your trans fluid yourself. This is a precautionary measure by the manufacturer to prevent the owner from changing the fluid. Instead, the workshop will have a special tool to measure the fluid level.

Cheers,

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.

How do i check my transmission fluid


Fluid Level Check

Remove the automatic transmission dipstick from the tube

Check the transmission fluid level on the dipstick

Automatic transmission dipstick marks; the proper level for a hot transmission is within the shaded area

Check the automatic transmission fluid level at least every 7500 miles (12,000 km). The dipstick can be found in the rear of the engine compartment. The fluid level should be checked only when the transmission is hot (normal operating temperature). The transmission is considered hot after about 15-20 miles (24-32 km) of highway driving.
Although the transmission should be checked while the fluid is at normal operating temperature, do not check it if it is at the extreme high end of the operating temperature range. Wait at least 30 minutes if you have just be driving the vehicle in ambient temperatures in excess of 90°F (32°C), at highway speeds for a long time, in heavy traffic (especially in hot weather) or have been pulling a trailer.
  1. Park the truck on a level surface with the engine idling, then shift the transmission into Park and firmly set the parking brake.
  2. With your foot on the brake pedal, move the selector through each gear range (pausing for about 3 seconds in each gear), then place it in Park. Allow the engine to run at idle about 3 more minutes.
When moving the selector through each range, DO NOT race the engine.
  1. With the engine running at a low idle, remove the dipstick, wipe it clean and then reinsert it firmly. Be sure that it has been pushed all the way in, then pause 3 seconds. Remove the dipstick again and check the fluid level while holding it horizontally. The fluid level should be between the upper notch and the FULL HOT line. If the fluid must be checked when it is cool, the level should be between the lower 2 notches.
Most of the transmissions for the 4.3L engine are equipped with a flip-top handle on the dipstick. To withdraw these, flip the handle upward, then pull the dipstick from the guide.
  1. If the fluid level is low add DEXRON®III automatic transmission fluid. The fluid must be added through the transmission dipstick tube, which is easily accomplished using a funnel. Add fluid gradually, checking the level often as you are filling the transmission. Be extremely careful not to overfill the transmission, as this will cause slippage, seal damage and overheating. Approximately one pint of ATF will raise the fluid level from one notch/line to the other.
WARNING Always use DEXRON®III ATF. The use of ATF Type F or any other fluid will cause severe damage to the transmission.

The fluid on the dipstick should always be a bright red color. If it is discolored (brown or black), or smells burnt, serious transmission troubles, probably due to overheating, should be suspected. The transmission should be inspected by a qualified technician to locate the cause of the burnt fluid.

Let AAMCO try it if they will guarantee that that is the fix. Be sure to use HONDA TRANS FLUID. Of course they wont gaurantee anything, unless they sell you the whole trans.

Low transmission fluid


Easy....you have to get under the car and remove the filler plug ABOVE the drain plug. You fill it till it comes out of that hole. You have what is called a closed cased transmission. Filling your transmission is very similar to filling a rear differential case.

Hope this helps!

Where do I check the transmission fluid on a 1997 Hyundai excel


Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
1687565.jpg
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed. Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.

DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. 2. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area around the dipstick. 3. With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking brake applied, start the engine. 4. The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 5. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the "N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is accurate. 6. Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range.

I cant find the transmission fluid dip stick or where to fill it


The manual transmission does not have a dipstick. The fluid level is determined by a fill plug in the side of the tranny. If the fluid is up to the level of the fill hole, then it is full.
