How do i put transmission fluid myself in a 1997 mercedes benz

Transmission fluid (ATF), like engine oil, should be checked regularly. The transmission box has a dipstick, like the engine. To check the ATF level, firstly locate the dipstick which is in the engine compartment. You will see the tube which carries the dipstick runs at an angle to the transmission box as opposed to the engine oil dipstick which runs almost directly down.
Checking the level involves starting the car and while the engine is running with the selector lever in P (Park) remove the dipstick, wipe it clean, then push it back and remove it again. Now you can check the level. Fluid is usually added into the dipstick tube.
If you are losing ATF, check for leaks because the A/T usually does not consume ATF.

95 Tracker 1st to 2nd shift issue (automatic)

Would start by checking linkage or the cable that runs to tranny. Tranny fluid level is correct? Check fluid level first. Run 15-20 mins and check with motor warmed and running

Oil coming dipstick

no year, ?
what are you saying?
  1. i do the official A/T dip check hot, all steps and its too high.
  2. im driving and the top of dip stick leaks ATF?
never ,ever guess on how to add ATF to any A/T tranny
or big problems, this is why most car companies removed this tube.
to end, wrong fluid added and too much.
the operators guide show the correct ways and steps
do not deviate from them.
if you lost your guide ask for one or just go to jeep and get one
and RTM. its all there.

Hi, i have Honda civic 2002 lxi i want to know how much automatic transmission fluid required and how i can know in my car right has a right level of ATF is there or not because some of them says u can...

Hahahaha! Those are words from people w/ automatic tranny? Heres how, early morning , before u start up the car, check the level of oil using the tranny dipstick. the dipstick will tell u( it has a level guide ) if it is full or low, if low, top up w/ ATF via that dipstick tube! Start the engine and let it warm up by driving around, check the dipstick, then u will see if it is low!
hope that helps u out!

I have a 1996 ford taurus. when i stop it does not go back into gear until i press on the gas. when it runs it runs fine

Check the transmission fluid level.

Do this by turning on vehicle, shift through all gears 2x, then leave in neutral.

Pull the transmission dipstick out, clean it off, insert transmission dipstick and pull out again.

The fluid should be in the crosshatched area.

If it is low you will need to add ATF fluid in the dipstick hole.

Changed filter, need to know where to put in atf

This veicle has no dip-stick for the ATF, You will need to raise the car and support on jackstands. On the bottom of the tranny pan there are 2 bolts one for drain (the lower one) and the upper one for filling. Here's the tricky part, the fluid will have to be pumped in with the engine running, when it starts to overflow, then it full. Cut engine and tighten fill bolt.

2007 honda odyssey oil change and transmission fluid recommended change frequency

Have supplies ready(long stem funnel to reachfill hole, 4 qts honda genuine atf-z1, rags for drips)
1. First, park the car while its hot on a flat surface and turn the engine off. Locate the yellow transmission dipstick and remove it and wipe it clean.
2. Look for the the ATF fill plug and washer(below and to the left of the brake fluid reservoir) 17mm marked "ATF" and remove it.
3. Locate the drain plug(not the one on pointing towards the drivers front tire but its located on on the drivers side of the transmission pointing towards the passengers side and lying horizontally) and remove it along with the washer. Its blue and is a standard 3/8 square drive plug and remove it. Drain completely. (wait 15 min or so until ALL is gone and replace the plug after throughly cleaning the magnet that is attached to it).
5. Replace atf fluid(honda says 3.3 qts- but mine took 3.8 to bring to first hole in dipstick level-check while running(use honda z-1 fluid only-yes- its expensive).
6. Replace fill bolt and washer and tighten.
7. Replace dipstick, let engine get hot and recheck. Recheck again after driving a day or so.
Your done-good work, you saved a $100 dollars...

It can be changed for every 60000 miles..

Engine is running fine but no drive to the wheels 2.8 TD Pajero

Not T/C it might be tranny pump. Check for pressure in Tranny lines. Open lines of hose that popped off and see if fluid jets out with engine running, messy but it will tell you if pump is bad.

I'm trying to put automatic tranny fluid in my mitsubishi mirage 99. Their is a white dipstick near the front right side of the engine that says ATF. I can't pull it out. Am I looking at the right thi

Unscrew it to the left a little then try to pull out. Don't be rough with it you don't want to break it. See if the dipstick has a tab that flips and releases it.

Nitro dipstick

Believe it or not, it doesn't have one. It just has a cap with no dipstick over the tranny fluid fill tube. You have to take it to the dealer, or a shop with the "speacial tool" (dipstick) to measure it. Some speculate that this may be due to the fact that Chrysler has had a bad rap for a number of years related to their transmissions. The don't want consumers adding the wrong type of tranny fluid (dextron) to the vehical thereby creating shifting and other issues. Rediculus if you ask me. Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
