The tranny is the transmission and to check the fluid level there is a plug on the side of the transmission to check the fluid level,
it's in the middle of the transmission some take a 3/8 rachet to put into the square hole to remove the plug in order to check and fill the transmission with gear oil

If it's AUTOMATIC , then NO DIP STICK , as transmission fluid is put in, and capped , as it does not need replacing , like Engine oil.

Where to check tranny fluid, cant find dipstick??


1999 Isuzu Troopers w/automatic transmissions do not come with a dipstick. It is a sealed transmission just like a manual transmission. The fluid must be checked by removing the fill plug. Emergency brake on, engine running,warmed up ,vehicle in neutral. When removing the fill plug ,which is on the side of transmission- at the top, fluid should slightly drip out. If fluid doesnt drip out you need to add fluid. You will need a small hand pump to fill it.

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.

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.

Cant find dip stick for tranny fluid 2004 sunfire


GM went to sealed transmissions. That car doesn't have a transmission dipstick.

There's a fill bolt that needs to be removed from the transmission while the car is on a level surface. If transmission fluid comes out, then you're at the proper level. Otherwise fill until fluid starts to come out. (Similar to what would be done on a manual transmission)

Look at the top of the transmission for a little red cap(like the oil fill cap) this is where you add fluid. If you want to check fluid condition, you need to remove cap and stick something in there and smear the fluid on a piece of paper to see color.

Hope this helps you out

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.

CAR WONT GO OVER 30 MPH


Sounds like your tranny is on the way out. I had a similar problem with my '91 Legacy and it required a tranny rebuild (or a used replacement which would have cost about the same).
Check your tranny fluid level and condition. Be sure to check for leaks. If its very low or empty, or really dirty (it should look red/pink, not dark or smell "burned"), it may be that a fluid replacement may remedy the shifting issue. A friend of mine had tranny issues where it was stuck in first gear, and it turned out that he never changed the tranny fluid in almost 80K miles, and a tranny flush and fluid replacement at his local Jiffy Lube solved the problem. Who knows what his neglect cosy him in longevity through. 
Hope this helps.

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.

I cant find the transmission fluid dip stick or where to fill it


The manual transmission does not have a dipstick. The fluid level is determined by a fill plug in the side of the tranny. If the fluid is up to the level of the fill hole, then it is full.
