How do u top gearbox oil up on a automatic clio 51 reg


For vehicles without ATF filler tubes and dip sticks accessible in the engine bay, the ATF needs to be pumped in from the side of the transmission and from under the car. There is a specific filling procedure that must be followed. If your particular model has no Auto transmission fluid filler tube with dip stick in the engine bay this is what must be done. If unsure on your particular model then check your owners manual or contact the dealer service people.

If your model has no engine bay ATF filler tube I suggest you get the dealer to do it for you or a transmission business that knows these transmissions and will not overfill it. The vehicle needs to be up on a lift and perfectly level in cases when fluid is required to be pumped into the Auto Transmission from under the vehicle.

These transmissions are sealed units and if fluid needs to be added then you will have a significant leak that needs to be attended to. Running the transmission with low fluid which requires adding to will result in expensive damage to the the unit. If you have a model with no engine bay transmission filler tube and dip stick to check the auto fluid level you will have no idea how much fluid is being lost if you have a leak.

Transmission shifts hard

How to check automatic transmission fluid. An automatic transmission depends on the transmission fluid for transferring engine power to the wheels, shifting gears, lubricating moving parts and cooling down the transmission. Check the transmission fluid when your car is serviced and change it as recommended. Different cars have different ways of checking the transmission fluid level; some require the engine to be shut off (e.g. Honda), some cars don't have a transmission dipstick at all and the fluid can only be checked in a repair shop. Check your owner's manual for proper procedure. This is how the transmission fluid checked on most cars:
transmission-fluid1.jpg After the vehicle was driven for a while to let the transmission fluid warm up, place your vehicle on a level ground. Set the parking brake. Make sure the transmission is in "P" (Park) position. Leave the engine running. Find the automatic transmission dipstick (your owner's manual will tell you where it is located). Pull the dipstick out.
transmission-fluid2.jpg Wipe the dipstick off with a clean lint-free rag. Insert it back fully. Pull it out again and check the fluid level. A transmission fluid expands when warmed up, so if the car has been driven for a while (20-30 minutes), the transmission level should be between "HOT" marks. If the vehicle is cold, the level should be between "COOL" marks. Check the fluid condition: a very dirty fluid with strong burnt smell is a warning sign of transmission problems. Normally the automatic transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, as in these photos.
transmission-fluid3.jpg On most cars the new transmission fluid comes red (photo on the left). Over the time it becomes brownish, as in the photo below.
transmission-fluid5.jpg This is how the synthetic transmission fluid looks after two years of driving - it's still clean and transparent. If your fluid looks very dark or dirty, check your owner's manual, maybe it's time to change it. Some manufacturers require to change the transmission fluid at 30,000 or 50,000 miles others specify that you never have to change it - check what's your car owner's manual says.
transmission-fluid4.jpg If the transmission fluid level is low, you can top it up, but be careful not to overfill it. Overfilling the transmission can cause problems. It's very important to use only specified transmission fluid type - check your owners manual or simply visit your local dealer, they always have proper transmission fluid in stock. Incorrect fluid type can damage your transmission. How to top up the transmission fluid: Using a thin funnel, add a small amount of the fluid through the dipstick pipe. Wait for a few minutes - let the fluid drain down. Recheck the level again. Don't overfill

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
First, check the transmission fluid level and condition. If you don't know how to do it, here is an illustration:
How to check the automatic fluid
With the engine idling and transmission in "Park" (some car may have different procedure, refer to the owner's manual) remove the automatic transmission dipstick and wipe it out with the clean lint-free cloth. Insert the dipstick back fully and then pull it out again. Check the fluid level; low level may indicate a transmission leak. Look at the fluid very closely. It helps if you drip the fluid onto a white paper to be able to see the fluid condition. The transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, without any metal filings or black flakes. The new fluid usually comes red. Over the time, it become more brownish, but it shouldn't be very dirty or black. Look at the image. Try to smell the transmission fluid; It should not have a burnt smell.
All this may seem difficult, but when you check few similar cars, you'll be able to see the difference. If the transmission fluid is too dirty or black, or smells burnt, it's better to avoid such a car.
Keep in mind, however, that some modern cars don't have the transmission dipstick and require special procedure performed in the auto repair shop to check the fluid level. In this case, the only way to check the transmission is on test drive. cc037824-574e-464e-b4e8-ab64c6eee062.jpg

How to check transmission fluid level


Most 1995-on VW models don't have a transmission fluid dipstick for checking the transmission fluid level. To fill and check the level of the VW automatic transmission fluid you have to remove a plug on the side or bottom (location depends on model and if you have an automatic vs. manual transmission) of the transmission drain pan. The factory manual refers the expensive VAG 1924 special tool for pumping the VW automatic transmission fluid into the oil pan.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

Just looking to add more transmissioin fluid.. not sure where


Underhood Check-check for transmission fluid at the transmission case screwed in with a dipstick. Most GM vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions have such a dipstick.
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    2001 Passport with automatic has no dipstick for transmission, how do I check level and where do I add fluid


    If you are looking to check the fluid levels and add transmission fluid you will need to first purchase a fluid pump at your local car repair store. Most run between $10 and 25$. For best results, run your car for a few minutes to bring the fluids to operating temperatures before attempting to add fluid. Be careful of hot surfaces and liquids.
    It is difficult to check the level of fluid in the 2001 Honda passport because it lacks a dipstick. Instead, you will have to get underneath the car and check it at the Automatic Transmission fluid pan. This is located approximately below the center of the rear passengers seat on the underside of the car.
    To check the fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Use your finger or other object to see if the fluid level is at the same level as the drain plug. This can be difficult to do therefore it may be easier to add fluid until it is full to verify that you are at the correct levels.
    To add fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Using the fluid pump, slowly add transmission fluid until it starts to drip out. Replace the bolt. Take care not to over tighten the bolt.

    If you want to be thorough, start your car and while your foot is on the brake, run your transmission through the gears slowly. Turn off your car. Remove the fill bolt and check the fluid level again. If it is not full see the previous steps. If your levels are OK, replace the bolt and you are good to go.
