TRANSMISSION OIL ? WHERE IS IT?


automatic or manual?

If automatic there will be a dipstick tube right under where the air box is. It will have a red handle on the dipstick. Fluid should be checked with the engine up to temp, the trans in neutral, and the vehicle on a level surface. fluid can be added through the dipstick tube.

Where's the transmission dipstick on a 2000 saturn sl


The Saturn L series automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick. They are the "new breed" of transmissions that are SUPPOSED to be trouble free. There is a plug on the passenger side of the transmission by the drive axle It is 11mm bolt. start the vehicle in park on a level surface or hoist...at operating temp pull out the plug Fluid should just trickle out of the plug hole If no fluid comes out add fluid to trans until it does...Where do you add??? Red plug on top/center of trans. Plastic plugthat threads in Add fluid there....Good luck

MY SATURN 1 SHOWS NO OIL WHEN IT IS COLD BUT WHEN CAR IS TURNED ON IT SHOWS FULL WHY IS THIS


To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.

Just whant to check automatic transmission oil with out going to dealer and where can i find the tool for the trans oil plug


ATF level is checked when the engine is running and the transmission is at normal operating temperature. Using the dip stick, determine the level. The level should be within or near the upper HOT mark.

How to check trans oil level


I assume that you have a 6 cyl.There are two plugs on the trans pan.the big one is the drain and the small one is the check plug.There is a fill on the side.The trans uses ws fluid which is what you need to use.What i do is remove the check plug and add fluid until it comes out.Then start the engine and let it warm up, the recomended temp is 97 to 115 degrees f or 36 to 46 degrees c.As it warms up the fluid will come out,once it reaches the temp range put the plug back in.I use a computer to monitor the temp but a temp gun on the pan will do.
