Unless you see red fluid on the ground you likely have no low fluid condition look under the car if it is leaking that much transmission fluid will be all over the place all the way back to the rear. Based on the symptoms you have indicated you havwe a failed transmission in need of a rebuild

SOURCE: 1997 chevy cavalier Z24 2.4l autotrans. fluid level

Hi losflip,
There is a plug located where the right side axle shaft enters the transmission it is above the pan. To check the fluid level of the transmission the engine must be at operating temp and the vehicle must be level. The must be running and the transmission in park, the plug is then removed and if transmission fluid starts dripping/leaking out it is full. If not transmission fluid should be added till fluid starts leaking from the plug hole, then just reinsert the plug and tighten. Generally this is done with the vehicle on a lift in order to access the plug, you might be able to do this if you have enough room to access the plug remember the vehicle must be level.

SOURCE: reading the gauge on the oil dipstick 1998 saab 900

The dip stick end should have a plastic square piece with two roundish bulbs on each end. The oil level should read just at the bottom of the top bulb (the bulb nearest the yellow cap at the top end of the dip stick). This indicates full. A level reading anywhere between the two bulbs is adequate but not optimal. Oil below the top end of the bottom bulb, means 1 quart low, and no oil at all on the bottom bulb means get some oil in there double quick.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick

You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.

1998 Honda passport auto trans only has reverse,no forward gears.I would like to have a wiring diagram for the trans ele plugs and to be able to check the shift solenoids for proper voltages/function


Check engine light on ? Hooking up a scan tool and checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would be the first thing to do ! And then using scan tool data list for transmission inputs to TCM/ECM ! If it were a electrical problem the check engine light would be on , most of the time . You can find free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html

Type of fluid for a 1998 Honda passport transmission


you did not state the type of transmission that you have, assuming that it is an automatic transmission.
the transmission used in the Passport models is an Isuzu transmission, so it requires inexpensive and easily available Dexron/Mercon fluid. not special Honda ZF fluid that all other Honda transmissions require. another person said that they use Dexron3 fluid in theirs.
the capacity for the automatic trans. 2 & 4 wheel drive are 9.1 US quarts.

I have a 1996 Honda passport with automatic transmission but I cannot the dip stick for the transmission fluid so I can check it. I would to know where it is .


There is NO DIPSTICK in the engine compartment.

On the side of the transmission, there are two plugs. You remove both plugs and fill one side with fluid, (not sure which side), until the fluid comes out the other drain plug hole.

One is lower than the other. Open the lower plug hole. If fluid begins to come out, then it's full.

I would suggest to leave it alone unless you suspect a real problem Do you see trans fluid on your driveway ? etc:

Reports indicate, do not leave trans fluid change too long for this vehicle. Check you hand book for proper interval.

How do you check trans fuild on honda passport 2001


Sorry to tell you this, but there is no dipstick. Honda says this in its maintenance materials:
Check automatic transmission fluid level only if leakage is suspected.
Automatic transmission has no dipstick, so fluid level can only be
measured by checking fluid temperature with a PGM Tester and removing
the overfill screw. Refer to the Service Manual for details.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


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

I have a 98 honda passport that i need to put transmission fluid in but i need a diagram to make sure i'm putting it in the rite whole


(Duplicate Question = Duplicate Answer)

If you have an automatic transmission, you should take it to a mechanic or at least purchase the special fluid temperature gauge needed to do it right. You add fluid through the overfill screw opening found on the transmission fluid pan (there is no dipstick or underhood component on the 96' and later models). It should be located in one corner of the pan; there's also a drain plug is more toward the middle. Never open the overfill screw with the engine stopped - it should always be running and warm.

Again I say: beg, borrow, buy, or steal a temperature gauge if you have an automatic. Add the new fluid with a small pump or syringe only when the gauge reads between 90 and 135 degrees F.

For a manual transmission, the fill plug is also on the pan, but it is located on the side.
