This model has a sealed transmission, there is no dipstick, the dealer has a special tool for checking the level at a plug just over the driver side axle.

look above the trans, should be there, sometimes a different color. If no luck check your manual or look for one online, call a dealer. My 94 stick was yellow.

Wanting to know where to add the transmission fluid to a 2003 Chevy Cavalier Automatic


Automatic transmission fluid is added at the dipstick tube. Remove dipstick from tube, wipe and reinsert while engine hot and running at idle, park or nutral ok. Add 1/4 quart at a time in same tube untill fluid level is at full mark. Do not mistake engine oil dip stick for transmission stick.

How do I check automatic trans fluid in a 1997 Honda Civic? In the past I've always check fluid with the car idleing in park at normal operating temperature. But the Honda dealer is telling me to check it...


That's because you don't understand how a Honda trans works. Think of it as an automatic manual trans, that is Honda's trans are the only one's where all the gears are constantly meshed. When a Honda trans shifts, it engages that specific gear. All the gears are meshed, a Honda trans engages a clutch pack which gives power through that specific meshed gear, just as you would if you were shifting a manual trans. Now since all the gears are constanly meshed, they are inmersed in trans fluid, If you check it while it is running, It will show less, plus the fact on some Honda models the gears are right next to the dip stick and if your not careful, the dip stick can get pulled into the gears and destroy the trans.

I have a 99 caviler need to know how do i check the trans fluid level it has a automatic overdrive


There are going to be two dip sticks one might say trans on it that's what your looking for. Drive around the block to get the tranny warm then pull out that dip stick and the fluid should be red and the end will tell you if you need more fluid or not
