When you have no dipstick tube you can incorrectly check youroil level. ... How you check your oil level ...Missing: inches ltr
To be honest here i do not have a lot of experiance with auto boxes as they are few and far between here in europe where its all small diesel engines and manual gearboxes but from the description it sounds like the clutch is slipping ,on all auto boxes their is a front clutch ,its a multiplate wet clutch that locks up with a oil pressure operated piston type system ,so if the clutch is worn or the piston then this will cause your problem ,now check the oil level when hot by applying the handbrake and putting in reverse with engine running and checking the oil level ,or when cold the level should be about half inch above the max without the engine running.Beware though that some vehicles do not have a dip stick for the auto box so no way of checking the level so what you do in this case is find the breather on top of the gearbox and some way or the other add a pint of dextron oil and see what happens
you should change the oil every 4000 to 5000 km in that hot climat your van should take a little more then 4 liters of oil so buy 6 liters oil filter part # should be on the filter you could take it off the old one if your doing this yourself drain oil put new filter in and add 4 liters of oil wait 5 minutes check oil level on dip stick add half liter at a time and check oil level again wait few minutes in between for oil to drop down in oil pan for proper readings on dip stick.repeat ontil oil level shows in the hatch marks on dip stick DONT OVER FILL. also fill oil filter with oil before instaling the new one to insure that oil will flow trought engine at startup without having to fill oil filter first leaving engine to run without oil until this happends internaly on its own you may have a liter left after your done ,you can use this for top ups inbetween oil changes .you should also check and replace your air filter at this time .
You have to take out the fill plug. If oil comes out, put the plug back in. If oil does not come out, stick the short end of an allen wrench in with it pointed down. If the oil is within a half inch of the hole you are ok.
At the rear of the engine locate the dip stick going into the transmission case, it look like an oil dip stick. Pull it out and wipe clean. Re-insert pull out and read the fluid level at the bottom of the dip stick. Do this with engine off and on a level surface.
Unfortunately for the consumer there is no dipstick to check the trans fluid on this vehicle. There is however a way to check the fluid, but the car needs to be up in the air and running, then you remove a plug from the lower part of the trans. at the right side axle where it comes out of the trans., and if fluid dribbles out when removed the fluid lvl is fine.
Your oil level is low. Wait until the motor is cold and check your oil level. You could also check your level after a drive just shut the motor down and wait 20 minutes for the oil to seep back down out of the block. Pull the dipstick, whipe it clean and did it in again and see what your reading is. If it is between Min and Max towards the middle of both it is fine. If It is all the way up by Max you may have too much, but I bet your oil level is low, I bet when you check it, it will be down near the min mark. If thats the case, find out what type of oil your car uses and buy one quart of oil and add some of it to your motor. I recommend you add about a quarter of the bottle, then stop check the dip stick if still low add a little more. If the level is good then stop. It is critical not to add too much oil. When cars get older they tend to run hot and burn oil. My van does the same thing, I can change the oil and add 5 quarts and about 3 weeks to a month later I have to add a little more and I usually can hear when i need to add some oil because I get a rattle/ping and the idle just doesnt sound right, but once I add the little bit of oil everything is all good.
if its for the transmission you have to check it while he car is running...if its for the oil you have to go it without it running and if its over the full mark on the oil you will need to drain some of it
