The Saturn L series automatic transmissions do not have a dipstick. They are the "new breed" of transmissions that are SUPPOSED to be trouble free. There is a plug on the passenger side of the transmission by the drive axle It is 11mm bolt. start the vehicle in park on a level surface or operating temp pull out the plug Fluid should just trickle out of the plug hole If no fluid comes out add fluid to trans until it does...Where do you add??? Red plug on top/center of trans. Plastic plugthat threads in Add fluid there....Good luck

Sounds Like a carrier bearing inside transmission. Check the fluid level of the transmission.

automatic or manual?

If automatic there will be a dipstick tube right under where the air box is. It will have a red handle on the dipstick. Fluid should be checked with the engine up to temp, the trans in neutral, and the vehicle on a level surface. fluid can be added through the dipstick tube.

I have a 1999 Saturn sl model and NOWHERE can I find the dipstick to check the tranny. There is the yellow dipstick for the oil, but where the Chilton's guide tells me there should be a red dipstick for...

The Transmission has a check plug and a fill cap. The check plug is located just under the passenger side axle and has a 11 mm head on it. The fill cap is on top of the transmission just underneath the air cleaner box. the transmission must be ideling in park and be warm to the touch , not hot or cold. Fluid should drip from check plug when full.

Manual Transmission on a 2000 Saturn SL

The dipstick is located underneath the battery tray. The intake, battery, battery tray all has to be removed, you will see it directly beneath of all of this. Completely practical place to put it!

Saturn 2001 transmission

this vehicle has no dipstick, supposed to be maintained by professional only. there is the fill cap on the drivers side, between the fuse box and engine. it is red and more towards the bottom. i imagine you can atleast see the fluid status.

Manual transmission, but a short red tipped dipstick,looks like tranny fluid?

I have a 1998 saturn with a manual transmission and it took me quite some time to locate the dip stick. it is located on top of the gearbox close to the brake resevoir where the linkeage connects. it has a red plastic clip on top of the dip stick and submerges verticaly into the gearbox and is about six inches long. the red clip can easliy be hidden with black dirt and not seen. do not confuse this with the clutch reservoir fluid located to the right of the brake master cylnder. good luck.
