Automatic transmissions use the dip stick tube for filling it.

Are you sure it needs fluid? Refer to your manual for proper procedure in checking the tansmission fluid level.

Where is the dipstick for transmission fluid on Aveo 5 2008 manual transmission?


I've never seen a manual transmission with a dipstick. Even most modern automatic transmissions are sealed units designed to go 200k+ miles without a fluid change. Dipsticks are pretty much a thing of the past.

Manual transmissions almost always have two plugs on a side somewhere... One at the bottom to drain, and another 4 to 6 inches above it to fill. You add fluid until it just starts to dribble out of the fill-hole and put the plug back in. If your manual tranny uses ATF like my T-56 does, I find it easiest to drill a hole in the cap on the fluid bottle and add a grommet from a hardware store and stick in a 3' length of tubing. Now you have a squeeze-bottle making it easy to fill through an inconveniently placed hole in a hard-to-reach place.

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil


  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

How can I add (top-up) transmission fluid into my 2005 isuzu ascender?


Most of these don't have a tranny filler tube. You have to go from underneath the tranny. You should then see two plugs with a square in it that fits 1/2" ratchet.
The top or upper plug is the fill hole. The fluid level in the tranny needs to be up as high as the bottom of that hole. You should be able to stick your finger in the filler hole and fill the fluid right at the hole.

I have a 1999 Saturn sl model and NOWHERE can I find the dipstick to check the tranny. There is the yellow dipstick for the oil, but where the Chilton's guide tells me there should be a red dipstick for...


The Transmission has a check plug and a fill cap. The check plug is located just under the passenger side axle and has a 11 mm head on it. The fill cap is on top of the transmission just underneath the air cleaner box. the transmission must be ideling in park and be warm to the touch , not hot or cold. Fluid should drip from check plug when full.

Where to check transmission fluid on a 2001 jaguar xjr


If there is a red dipstick, check it from here.
If no dipstick, then you will have to go from underneath and look at tranny. There will be two plugs on tranny. A lower drain plug and upper fill plug. You can remove the upper fill plug, put finger in the whole and you should be able to feel the fluid. If not, add some, You can use a rubber hose and funnel or top with hose on bottle to help fill it up

Where do you fill the automatic transmission?


If you have a tranny dipstick, then you would need a long tranny type funnel and fill there.
If you do not have a dip stick, then you would have to raise the vehicle, and look at the tranny. There will be a higher and a lower plug on it. Remove the higher plug and stick your finger in the hole. If you feel fluid, then it is full.

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.

Automatic Transmission fluid level


Here is the step by step on how to do it.

Be sure that transmission fluid temperature is at least 104° F (40° C). To access check/fill plug: In the engine compartment, remove clamp from air hose behind cooling fan. Separate air tube from the hose and push the tube back towards the transaxle. Remove the clip holding the two power steering lines together. All Models: From underneath vehicle remove the transaxle check/fill plug with engine running. Fluid level should be even with hole. Add fluid as needed until fluid flows from hole. Replace check/fill plug and torque to 9 ft. lbs. (12 Nm).
