If there is no dipstick, only a fill hole, there is a plug under the vehicle on the trans near where the right axle comes out. start the vehicle and remove the plug. if fluid comes out, it is full, if not, dump fluid in the fill hole on top until it starts coming out the plug and close it up.

92 honda acord standered ,were on the motor do I add oil for the gears? Or do I even have to?


  1. The gears are in the transmission.. you can add oil to the trans if it is low.. Auto trans uses auto trans fluid. There is a dip stick.
  2. Standard trans you must remove a plug in the side of it to check the fluid.
  3. The engine uses motor oil.. you remove the cap that is attached to the top of the motor.. but first check the oil with the dip stick.

Mitsubishi galant viento 96 auto trans looses drive over approx 2000rpm


Have the tranny oil level checked first off.. Next have the tranny pressures checked as it appears that you are not getting sufficient pressure to hold the gears. May need a tranny adjustment in the bands and clutches in the box

How to check the auto Trans


You can't check it....there is a overfill screw were you fill transmission through...its under the vihicle..transmissions don't burn or leak oil so no need to check them ..unless it is slipping or shifting bad.....should have trans oil changed about every 20,000 miles..

Auto Transmission problem: Feels like it doesnt shift into OD and accelerates slow as if it stays in one gear. When put in 1st, it feels like the park brake is up of you're riding the brakes.


have you check the oil level on trans and have you change the oil on the engine lately check the levels on both. Usually on engine is too much oil car drags and on trans if low oil it usually stays in gear to protect the trans. your car is telling you check oil. No lubrication some warning lights do not come up for trans

Transmission slipping


Did you check the trans oil level. When you changed
the RADIATOR you will loose some trans oil.
If the transmission oil was low when you changed
the radiator it's lower now. Check it now.
Now, if thats not the problem. With that many miles
have you changed the trans oil lately theirs a filter
above the trans oil pan that may be pluged up change
it and the oil. Also, buy a can of trans X it's the only fix
in a can stuff I"LL use.

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.


It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.

no that is the trans if it smells and looks like gear oil you need a transmission trans for transmission lock is the position to lock down the stick in this 4l60e your fluid is just that dirty there is NO way to check gear oil from the top at all once again that is your trans fluid yes it should be bright red but if it looks like gear oil you most likely have waited way too long to check it...
