Yes. Ask them at the parts store to be sure that the fluid you buy is compatible with your vehicle. Different vehicles take different fluid.

2012 grand caravan can't find the transmission dipstick


Doesn't have one , like most newer vehicles . Could have a cap on top of trans/axle to add fluid . Probably a plug on the side of trans/axle to check fluid level . Take out the plug and if transmission fluid drips out , it's full . Don't know why they are doing it that now .To make sure call the dealer . Or look at owners manual

No Transmission Fluid in the front diff (gear oil)

Steering Knuckle Seals-there is no fluid,
just the front drive axles

Have to explain where your working & on what
vehicle component

You shouldn't have trans fluid leak from anything

WHAT IS THE TRANSMISSION FLUID FOR CVT 2.2 L FWD


it's very special, and if done wrong, dooms the trans-axle
all this is covered, in the FSM
read it in the book and on most cars the CVT has very very
special needs and procedures for changing lube.
some, it must be done a s special temperature. < yes.

ever seen and FSM. (for doing factory service)
it shows all the steps, 1 by 1.
login to alldata.com
the lube is at GM. dealers.
03 VUE
VT25e (cvt made in Hungary)
GM RPM code M75(2WD)/M16(F4WD)
spec, fluid
DEX-CVT and Automatic Transmission Additive
8.53qt
there are 10 service bulletins on this trans-axle
TSBs (read them all)
see the special additive yet>?
quote.
Notice:
Use DEX CVT fluid (P/N 22688912) only. Use of
any fluid other than DEX CVT will
cause internal trans=axle damage.
Important:
Add one unit (10 CC syringe) of DEX CVT additive (P/N 22697447) whenever an unrecoverable loss of fluid occurs during an authorized limited on vehicle repair. Minor fluid
loss, such as minor drips that may occur during the fluid checking procedure, does not require the addition of the additive.

1995 ford aspire trans axle fluid level


you should see a plug that looks different from the oil drain plug on the transmission pan, or near the bottom, on the side of the transmission.
remove, drain. You refill through the dipstick tube for trans fluid.
If it's a manual trans, there will be another plug higher up on the trans.
this one will be the fill plug.
Also on the manual trans, some people just remove the shifter and add fluid in the large hole up top.
Youtube and google will be your friend here.

Can not find where to check trans fluid on automatic


GM went to a "fill for life" transmission on these cars, easiest way to tell is look at the top of the trans, you shoud see a red screw on cap about 1.5 inches across. If you have this, the proper way to check the fluid level is to run the car to normal operating temperature, raise the vehicle on a hoist and while the engine is running in park, remove the check plug on the right side of the transmission by where the axle shaft goes in. When you are looking at the axle, it will be a pipe plug at about the 4:00 position. Some trans fluid will run out. Add fluid until it starts running out the hole. When it stops, reinstall the plug and you are at the proper level.

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

2003 impala 42K miles. shuddered and stop moving. Car starts but will not move when put into gear.


IT sounds like the transmission has failed. Check the fuse in the fuse box and look to see if the fuse to the transmission has blown. Check the transmission fluid level and condition of the fluid, what you described sounds like the Torque Converter did not unlock and now will not lock up. Most likely it's going to be a electrical problem since you only have 42K miles on it un-less you have been running it hard and may have broke something mechanical. Good luck and keep me posted.

Transmission trouble. fluid looks fine. absolute


It sounds like you might have blown an axle. Especially if there has never been any transmission problems before. You said the fluid looks fine, and by that I take it to mean the fluid is clean and red, and its full. A blown axle will make the click noise, as the splines on the end of the axle are trying to mesh with the splines inside the transmission. The problem could be in the trans., but I'd pull the axles out first and check them, as axles are a lot cheaper and easier to change than a transmission.

Fluids


Trans axle and transmission are the same in a front wheel drive car. After 25 oil changes, the trans fluid probably should be replaced anyway, if never done yet. Pontiac/Toyota do recommend synthetic trans fluid, which is quite pricey per quart from the dealer. If you did drain the trans fluid, and didn't replace it, chances are you wouldn't be driving right now. I do wonder how oil change #26 went wrong? Not criticizing, just wondering. Hope this helps.
