They did not ventilate the transmission very well Extremely common issue on 1996-2002 jimys and blazers. Its nothing to really worry about just one of those quirks.

SOURCE: the transmission dipstick length

Any transmission repair shop can get that part from hundreds of
wholesale supply houses they get their parts from

There are people that sell only hard parts or used internal parts
They have the dipstick

Salvage Yards have them

Dealers can check from old stock around the country etc

You can order on the internet fron one of the trans suppliers,
in the US at least

SOURCE: Why would my 96 gmc jimmy shoot transmission fluid out where dipstick is when it's cold... Smokes alot

you have way too much fluid in trans !!!!!!!!!!!! remove trans pan, drain out fluid, replace gasket and filter, put in (4 quarts) fluid. MAYBE ! DONOT OVERFILL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONOT DRIVE UNTIL YOU DO THIS !!! NOW, START ENGINE, LET IT WARM UP, CHECK FLUID LEVEL, IF ITS TOUCHING THE DIPSTICK TAKE VAN FOR A SHORT RIDE, AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD, (5-10) MINUTES, THEN , WHILE ON THE LEVEL, RECHECK FLUID LEVEL, 3 TIMES, WIPING OFF THE STICK EACH TIME, YOU WANT TO SEE THE FLUID LEVEL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE "HOT" CROSSHATCHED AREA OF DIPSTICK ! IF THATS WHERE IT IS, CONGRADULATE YOURSELF, YOU ACTUALLY DID IT RIGHT !!! LEAVE IT ALONE, GO ON YOUR WAY. NOW, IF YOU NEED TO ADD FLUID, USE YOUR FUNNEL, ADD ONLY A SHOT GLASS @ A TIME ! DO YOU HEAR ME ????? A SHOT GLASS @ A TIME, NO MORE, NO LESS. EVERYTIME YOU PULL DIP STICK OUT, WIPE IT OFF, WIPE IT OFF, WIPE IT OFF !!! MAKE SURE YOU RESEAT STICK ALL THE WAY IN ! REMEMBER, THE ENGINE MUST BE @ NORMAL RUNNING TEMPERATURE, WITH GEAR SHIFT IN PARK, ENGINE RUNNING !

How to add transmission fluid to a 1998 gmc jimmy


automatic or standard? Automatics have a dipstick, you use a funnel and pour it in through the dipstick tube, Standards have a bolt on the transmission you need to take out and fill it up till it can hold no more

The dipstick is where you fill it =) (lol) use a funnel too, otherwise you will stain your garage floor.

WHERE TO ADD TRANSMISSION FLUID ON A 1997 TOYOTA COROLLA WITH AUTO TRANSMISSION. ALSO, THERE IS A STREAM OF TRANS OIL EXITING JUST AHEAD OF THE TRANSMISSION ITSELF. IT APPEARS THAT EITHER THE SUPPLY-LINE...


you can add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube for the transmission. as far as the lines, most transmission fluid lines are rubber in the middle and aluminum on the ends, so they shouldn't rust. if its leaking fluid that fast, its probably a hole in the rubber part. also make sure the dipstick tube is seated well in the transmission. neither one of which is hard to fix, just determine where the leak is coming from first

Where do you put in the transmission fluid for a 1995 GMC Jimmy? Is it in the same place as the dipstick?


Yes, you are correct. Start the engine, leave in Park position, check fluid level. If low, use a funnel and insert into the trans oil dipstick tube, add fluid as needed.
Caution: Do Not Overfill.
good luck.
