Manual transmissions do not have fluid...they are all mechanical and use clutch discs to operate. Are you positive you don't have an automatic?

Where do I find the dip stick to check tranny fluid


There is no dipstick. You have a sealed transmission that uses synthetic transmission fluid. The fluid level has to be checked by a mechanic. If you are not leaking any fluid, you do not need to get it checked. The owners manual probably says you never have to change the transmission fluid. But if you want to change it, wait until 60,000 to 80,000 miles before it gets changed.

1991 Chevy Lumina APV. The transmission fluid is leaking. Can this be a gasket or seal problem? Also, can it be I put too much fluid in?


Leaking transmission fluid can usually be traced to 1 or 2 problems:
  1. leaking transmission line - a line could be bent or it could be leaking around a fitting, the most common place for a transmission line to leak
  2. the gasket around the transmission pan is worn - this would cause leaking and having the filter and fluid changed should fix this problem
To answer your other question, YES it is possible to overfill the transmission fluid. Check the dipstick (with the car running) and ensure that the level stays between the recommended marks.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it


Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing

Where is the dipstick located for the transmission fluid on a 2005 Pontiac Sunfire


According to the owners manual unless you drive in hilly, or heavy stop and go traffic like a taxi, you should never have to add trans mission fluid unless you have a leak. The manual doesn't even give a fluid capacity for the auto transmission. So I guess when you have to have the auto trans. filter changed, you have to take the car to a transmission specialist. If in fact the filter even needs to be changed. The manual leaks you to believe that the transmission fluid and filter are lifetime products.

How to prevent the transmission from damage
(The filter usually is screen type and can be cleaned when remove bottom cover. but this is not to be done at regular maintenance inspection.)
- Regularly check your parking space for leaks. Doesn't matter, is it the engine oil leak, power steering fluid or transmission fluid; if you discover any, get it fixed before it caused something serious.
- Once in a while check the transmission fluid level and condition. Not all cars however have the automatic transmission dipstick, in some cars, for example, in late Volkswagen models, the transmission fluid can only be checked by the dealer. Consult with your owner's manual for details. If the transmission fluid level is too low, there is a leak somewhere that needs to be fixed.
- Change the fluid as often as it said in your owner's manual or when it becomes too dark (rather brown than red) or dirty.
Also, keep in mind that an automatic transmission can not be drained completely - there is always some transmission fluid left inside the transmission (the torque converter, in the valve body, etc.) which means you only can change about %60 of the fluid at once. This is one more reason to change it more often.

- Use only the same type of the transmission fluid as specified in the owner's manual or on the dipstick. Some vehicles (e.g Dodge Caravan) are very sensitive to fluid type
- Never shift to the Reverse or Parking until the car comes to a complete stop.
- Never shift from the Parking mode when engine rpm is higher than normal idle.
- Always hold a brakes down when shifting from Parking.
- The automatic transmission can be damaged if towing with the drive wheels on the road. Always use a dolly or place powered wheels on the towing platform (if the vehicle is front wheel drive - tow it from the front leaving rear wheels on the road.
