Location of transmisson dipstick on a 02 chevy malibu


GM realized that transmissions lasted longer and needed less fluid changes when the transmission was sealed so they stopped putting transmission dipsticks in at some point.

Make sure the car is in park with the engine running and pull out the transmission filler tube dipstick and wipe it off. Put it back in the same place you took it out of. Then pull it out again then look at the level position of the oil at the bottoim of the dipstick. 1 quart is equivelent to about 1/2 in

Transmission stuck in higher gears on highway/fluid fill level


The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Instead there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.

Note: the vehicle must be kept level when checking the transmission fluid level.

Place an oil container under the check plug and remove it. Observe the fluid as it drips into the pan, indicating correct fluid level. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the check hole. Double check to make sure the car is level. If no fluid drips from the check hole, some fluid should be added via the red cap. But add only a little at a time until the fluid is at the bottom of the check hole.

How to check transmission fluid level


Unfortunately you can not. Chevy put sealed transmissions on most of their cars starting in 2006. It would be out of luck if you got one without a sealed transmission. If you did, look behind the engine on the passenger side for a dipstick similar to your oil dipstick. If you dont see one, you will have to go to the dealership to have it checked.

I need to know the location of the Transmission dipstick on a 2006 malibu maxx LTZ 3.5 lite, as the car is not shifting properly shifting,it runs as its stuck in 2nd gear and yet its an automatic...


If you can't find the stick, likely you have one of GM's "better ideas"...See if there is a fill cap on top of the trans, If it's there, there is a plug on the right side of the transmission. Remove the plug and on flat ground, fill 'till fluid comes out of the fill hole, then re-install the plug.
But, the condition you have outlined sounds like the trans control is stuck in "limp mode" and may need attention (trans diagnostics) to determine if your problem is in the trans or the control itself. Especially if you see no obvious leaks fluid may not be your problem.

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.

2006 Malibu Maxx ss hard shifting/Check engine light


There is no dip stick. Its most likely not the fluid. These malibu's use the first generation GM LAN system. Check the data cord comming from the transmission near the mechanical shifting linkage. Alot of these shifting issues and errors are from a break in the wiring causing bad data to be sent/rvcd to/from the computer control module- these cars are electronically controled shifted, not mechanical.

Transmission fluid level


It is usually printed on the Transmission dipstick.
Engine warm, engine running, on level ground. Check level on dipstick, shoud be somewhere between add and full. Do not add oil if it is not below the add line.
