Check for oil leeks from trans if no leaks you should not need to top up oil if you do want to flush the oil you will find to plugs 1 the drain plug on the bottom of the trans and 1 filler plug on the trans about 1/2 way up the housing you will need some sort of pump to get the oil back in though, pump the oil in till it starts running out the filler plug hole then let it run till it stops and you will no the trans is full replace the plug and tighten (do not over tighten ether of the plugse as you can crack the housing bear in mind thay only retain oil they do not hold the engine in the car)

SOURCE: manual transmission, but a short red tipped dipstick,looks like tranny fluid?

I have a 1998 saturn with a manual transmission and it took me quite some time to locate the dip stick. it is located on top of the gearbox close to the brake resevoir where the linkeage connects. it has a red plastic clip on top of the dip stick and submerges verticaly into the gearbox and is about six inches long. the red clip can easliy be hidden with black dirt and not seen. do not confuse this with the clutch reservoir fluid located to the right of the brake master cylnder. good luck.

SOURCE: 1998 SUNFIRE GT TRANSMISSION PROBLEM

There are 3 transmissions that could be in your car,the 3 speed auto and 4 speed auto overdrive,and of course the manual 5 speed.The 3 speed is designated the 3T40,the 4 speed auto is the 4T40E trans.To check the fluid level,first,the car has to be warmed up to at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit.The car has to be raised in the air,as there is a steel plug in the trans case that has to be removed to check the fluid level.The plug takes an 11 mm or 7/16" socket or wrench and is located on the passenger side of the trans case,near where the passenger side axle engages into the trans.The procedure is to warm the car up to at least 100 degrees,engage the shifter into each gear selection pausing for about 5 seconds in each gear,then remove the plug.If fluid drips out,it is full.If no fluid drips out,add fluid through the top of the trans after removing the red plastic cap,and make sure to use a long funnel to avoid a mess.Add fluid until it drips out the hole.When done,replace the plug and cap.Just a note,a transmission does not "use" fluid like an engine uses oil.If you have to add fluid,that means there is a leak that needs to be repaired.Good luck

SOURCE: Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.

on the bottom of the transmission pan you will find a nut with a hex or torx in the middle you remove the center plug when the truck is hot and running on a level serface the trans fluod will dribble out if it does not dribble out it is low if it runs out fast a steedy streem it is over full now their is a part that screws into this for a fill if you remove the pan you will see how it works the pan has a pipe/ stack that when full of fluid the top of the pipe is at the full point if you remove the large nut the stack and plug will come out the best way to change the trans fluid is take it to some place that has a fluid exchange equment this will get all the fluid out including the torque converter

SOURCE: Low Transmission Fluid in 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

  • This care does not have a dipstick but can easily be checked at home.

  1. 1. Warm the car up to running temperature.
  2. 2. Park it on a level surface.
  3. 3. Leave the car running and set the emergency /parking brake. Also set bricks in front and behind the wheels.
  4. 4. Look on the passenger side of the transmission (underneath the car)
  5. 5. You will see a 10mm bolt a little bit inward from the right axle on the transmission itself.
  6. 6. Have a drain pan ready and pull that bolt.
  7. 7. If fluid comes out it is full.
  8. 8. If no fluid comes out then add ATF III in the fill port on top of the transmission until the fluid just barely seeps out of that hole you removed the bolt from.
  9. 9. This port is on top of the transmission (under the hood) and is usually red or black in color.
  10. 10. The transmission is now full and ready to go.
  • Hope this helps.

Car makes a loud noise and jerks when I try to put it in a gear.


we might need to know if this is the car's 1st transmission and how many miles are on it --- but tansmissions that make noise and **** when put into gear are transmissions that are low on transmission fluid or have burnt (old) fluid - check your transmission fluid level using the transmission fluid dipstick (its location should be in the car's owners' manual).
If fluid looks dark (significantly darker than new fluid from the bottle), then drain &fill tranny.
If fluid is just low, fill tranny and monitor level for continued leakage.
A word of caution: keep on top of the tranny's fluid level - running on a dry transmission is a really good way to put a 94 Cutlass into the junkyard before its time.

How do i fill manual trasmossion fluid?


there is a screw on the side of the transmission. You will need to unscrew this to fill the transmission up with fluid. You will need a pump to pump the fluid into it, also you should check it after opening it stick your finger into the hole and see if you can feel any fluid, tranny should be filled to the point of being able to feel the fluid through the fill hole/w finger. Also check your owners manual to find proper transmission fluid to put in the car, Wrong fluid can damage your transmission causing breakage or transmission to never work again. Thank you hope this helps....

When gasing the engine tranny slips


If you have a manual transmission it is time to replace your clutch. If you have an automatic transmission it is time for a transmission rebuilt. You can have your auto trans fluid and filter changed and this might help, but I doubt it. There is very little you can do for a slipping clutch in a manual tranny except replace the clutch. If you have a manual tranny with a clutch that is manual adjusted then the cluth may be out of adjustment, but I doubt you have a manually adjusted clutch it is more then likely hydralic.

How do u fill the tranny differential on a 1996 toyota corolla?


It depends on if have you have a 3 speed automatic, 4 speed automatic, or a manual transmission.

The 4 speed and manual tranny share their fluid with the differential so if you fill the tranny you fill the differential at the same time.

The 3 speed differential does not share its fluid with the tranny. To fill or check the fluid on the 3 speed automatic you will need to get underneath the car. The fill bolt faces the firewall side of the transmission. It is about 4 inches above the differential drain plug. You will need a fluid pump and hose to get the fluid into the fill hole. The fluid you will need is Dexron tranny fluid.

Where the plug for tranny on 96' jetta is located?


On the manual transmission you go through the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). Its suppose to go 1/2 way up the teeth marks. Does it not say in the Chiltons manual? I can check when I get home.

Is this a manual, or automatic? Manual, you may need to replace a driveaxle(or both). If automatic, check fluid, and linkage. If fluid is low, or empty, fix leaks, and fill with fluid. Have a diagnostics done on car for transmission codes. If manual, and driveaxles checkout to be okay, check any sensors on transmission. Check sensors on automatic as well; and fluid. (manaul transmission fluid is check by oil dipstick; oil lubes engine and tranny.
