Usually you have to have the car hot and in neutral (parking brake on and wheels chucks is a must) then pull the dipstick for the tranny and always check more than once.

How do i ck the auto trans fluid


start your engine and let it get hot. cycle your transmission from park to drive to reverse back to park, pausing each time to let the transmission engage. Then, with the engine still running pull the trans fluid dipstick, wipe it off and reinsert it. pull it out again and check the level. there are marks on the dipstick to let you know whether to add or not.

If the port is not full how do you know when not to add anymore trans fluid


In an automatic transmission while the engine is running in park check the dipstick after the vehicle has reached normal operating temp. There is a mark for cold and hot. Since the fluid expands with high temps always check when hot to ensure you wouldn't add any excess fluid if you needed to add some as overfilling it would cause premature failure and expensive repairs

Good day.how many liters will i consume if I'll going to change the automatic transmission fluid of my toyota 2c engine.


V6 or 4 cylinder engine?

A trans drain and refill is about the same as an engine oil change.

Find the trans. Under the trans is an oil pan, much like the one on the engine. There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the trans pan.

Depending on the model of trans it can hold say 6-8 quarts of fluid. Only about 2.6 will drain out the pan as the rest is held in the torque converter.

The easiest approach is to measure how much fluid drained out and refill with the same amount.

The trains has a dipstick. Check fluid when hot, engine running after moving the shifter from Park to Low and return. The dipstick will have a "Hot" and "Cold" mark, use the hot mark if the fluid is hot. The stick will also have the type of fluid used, typically Dexron III or now called "ATF" fluid. Read the container to make sure it is a substitute for Dexron III.

As only 1/3 to 1/2 of the total fluid amount drains out of the pan at one time you will need to do a few drain and fills over time to get most of the old fluid out.

you know what that sounds like it may be.... believe it or not check your trans fluid (car running WARM and in park ) make sure that the fluid is red almost pink like not dark red. Also why not try and change out the spark plugs and air cleaner!

Trans bangs into gear on acceleration, feels like 2nd to 3rd gear. I have 98K on this honda. Trans fluid was never changed. Checked trans fluid it is in spec, bangs into gear hot or cold. Also check engine...


In all probability, the transmission fluid has stopped doing its work. You should have changed ATF fluid and filter about 60k miles ago. Auto transmission on 1998-2002 Accords are notoriously weak. ( i own one). I would venture to say that you have abused the tranny beyond its possibilities. If D light is flashing, transmission computer has detected a problem. Change tranny oil and filter to see if you can save it but outlook is not good.

1998 honda passport auto transmission slips


CHECK THE TRANSMISSION FLUID TO SEE IF IT IS LOW. THERE SHOULD BE A COLD LEVEL AND A HOT LEVEL. WITH THE TRANS IN PARK AND HOT, ENGINE RUNNING PULL THE DIPSTICK TO SEE IF THE TRANS NEEDS FLUID. WHEN ADDING, MAKE SURE THE PROPER FLUID IS USED. IF THE TRANS FLUID LEVEL IS OK BUT THE TRANS FLUID SMELLS BURNED OR IS VERY DARK THEN HAVE THE TRANSMISSION SERVICED WITH FLUID AND FILTER. I HOPE THIS HELPS. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS. BEST OF LUCK

Trans still wont engage


If there is no fluid when you take off one of the lines (check both: the cooler might be plugged) while the engine is running, and there is fluid in the trans, then you have a bad pump inside the trans, or the valve body fell off. Either way, it's probably not going to engage. Ever.

Transmisson question


first of all the engine must be running when you check your automatic transmission. when the engine and trans is cold (you just started it for the first time of the day) the fluid should be up to the cold line when the the engine is hot(you have been driveing for awile) it should be up to the hot line.

Voltage intermittent, engine missing at all speeds, affect auto trans. shifting, kills hot or cold


The charging system, pedal, and sensors have been checked. The trans. problem and missing problems were the original problems and when my mechanic finally sent me to Chev. none of the problems " choose to show themselves." I should know on Mon. if my mechanic has solved the problems with the greater number of symptoms. Keep me in your files. More later-  Bill
