There is a small shield (baffel) in the oil pan that if put in backwards it will block the dipstick from going all the way in. You need to remove the pan and turn it around. The proper dipstick measurement is the full mark should be even with the bottom of the case or top of the pan.

Your transmission is sealed and has no dip stick, checking the fluid level properly involves using a factory scan tool.

SOURCE: Had broken oil dip stick tube and a code PO171. VW 2001 turbo.

The po171 code means the system is running too lean.
Try cleaning the maf sensor (mass air flow) and see if that works.
It can be cleaned with intake cleaner or brake parts cleaner that"s in a spray can.
The maf sensor is located between the air filter and the throttle body in a big black hose and has a wire connection to it. Be very careful when you clean it.

How do you check transmission fluid on a 1991 pontiac trans am?

You will need to warm the vehicle up to normal temp, then locate the trans fluid dip stick (it should be on the passenger side with red handle) set the parking brake, and place vehicle in neutral. Pull out dip stick and wipe clean, then put dip stick back in, and pull back out, if it is in the cross hatched area stating warm you are good. It should also have a nice pink color to it. If it is a brownish rust color, then it is time for a fluid and filter service.

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.

It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.
