Automatic geared cars have two oil dipsticks. They are often different sizes, the larger is normally for the engine oil and the smaller is for the gear box. In any case auto gear oil should be a red color. This means that the dipstick with red oil on it is the gear one.

There's usually a dipstick similar to the oil dipstick. It's not as easy to find and down on the transaxle somewhere. Your user manual will tell you when to check it.
Unlike engine oil, transmission fluid often needs to be checked after the vehicles warms up, after the shift lever has been shifted through all the gears (you don't necessarily have to go anywhere) and while the engine is running with the shift lever in park.
But sometimes the instructions are different. Check your manual. It probably also shows a drawing of the engine showing where the dipstick is located.

92 honda acord standered ,were on the motor do I add oil for the gears? Or do I even have to?


  1. The gears are in the transmission.. you can add oil to the trans if it is low.. Auto trans uses auto trans fluid. There is a dip stick.
  2. Standard trans you must remove a plug in the side of it to check the fluid.
  3. The engine uses motor oil.. you remove the cap that is attached to the top of the motor.. but first check the oil with the dip stick.

Air bubbles in trans fluid


If you have too much fluid it can lead to foaming. I would check that first.

CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK

Cannot find where the transmission fluid would go


is the car auto or manual??
if auto you pour fluid down the tube you check your fluid at. make sure when you check the trans fluid the car is running or you will get the wrong reading.

if car is manual then you have to get a rachet and remove the plug on side of trans and pour the right gear oil into it (note not trans fluid GEAR OIL)

Transmission fluid level check 02 jetta tdi auto


VW didn't put a "dipstick" on the trans for whatever reason. You technically have to use the VW Vag-Com scanner to properly check the trans fluid level as VW says it has to be checked at a specific temperature. But there is a "shade-tree" workaround. Start the car and leave the engine running the throughout the entire procedure. You have to get the trans fluid warm-a little under normal operating temp. 95F-104F is what you want-you can attain this after letting the car idle for 8 or so minutes. Continuing, leave the trans in park, and make sure you are on as level of a surface as possible. Then loosen the allen plug on the bottom of the trans pan. You will then see another plug. Remove this plug. Fluid should just trickle out of the hole if it is at the proper level. If it trickles out, you are good. If it doesn't you need to add fluid. Add VW spec ATF through the fill port.The fill port on the top front of the trans is capped off by a red cap and is very visible. Very carefully pry the cap off and then wiggle the plug out. I'd highly suggest having a spare red cap on hand-VW dealer has them. Then you can pour fluid into the trans. Add a little bit at at time, and all the while watching for the fluid to tricke out of the trans plug hole. When it trickles out, replace the inner plug and then the outer plug. That's it. Recheck after driving the car for a few miles. FYI- A flud and filter swap on the the VW auto trans takes 3 liters, so keep that in perspective. I hope this helps you out.

Check auto trans fluid level in 2008 Yaris


I don't know how many models this affects, but I had heard that some manufacturers are no longer putting in a dipstick to check automatic transmission fluid. For example, check the "Tips and Warnings" box (lower center of page) at this web site. Your car may be one of those affected. You can check with a Toyota dealer to be sure.
