How do I check the transmission fluid in a 2010 chrysler town and country 6 speed transmission


Get your car to normal run temperature, park on a flat drive then put it in neutral, under your hood you will fill the dip stick for your transmission, it should be a yellow handle, pull it, wipe it off and replace it then pull it again and check the level on the dip stick, it will show you where it should be at, add if you need some

How much tranamission fluid does my 1997 sable hold


If you have your owners manual, there is a section containing the capacities for all fluids. You may also simply check your fluid level, with a running motor and warm transmission. If the stick indicates add, start with a 1/4 quart and work your way up. Unless there is a problem with the trans, there is no real reason to ever add fluid unless your are flushing the transmission.

Car engine starts but does not move


Something you can try, but you would have to be very lucky for this to be the problem.

If you haven't already, check your transmission fluid level. If the fluid level gets low enough in the transmission it can cause the car to not move at all.

Please do the following, unless you already have;

Start the engine and let it run 6 to 8 minutes to allow the engine and fluids to reach normal operating temperature.

Remove the dip stick to the transmission fluid, wipe it off, put it back in, and then take it out again to read it. If there is no fluid on the dip stick, add 3/4 of a quart of transmission fluid in through the pipe that you took the dip stick out of. Put it in gear and see if there's any diference, if not, add the other 1/4 of the bottle and then try to put it in gear again and see if it will move.

Continue adding 1/4 of a quart at a time until the car starts to move, or the transmission level showing on the dip stick is where it should be.

Best of luck!

1995 Chevy Lumina Minivan. Transmission stops (acts as if in nuetral) operating after the car warms up. Once the car cools off, the transmission engages again until it gets warm and repeats the...


Is the fluid level OK? You can check this with the engine running and parking break set. Gain access to the eigine compartment and find the dip stick for the transmission. Please be careful of moving parts when the engine is running. Pull it out and wipe it off with the clean towel. Install the stick and remove it and see if you have a level reading. If not, fill it with the correct Dex type GM fluid that may be stamped on the dip stick. You can ask for help at an auto parts store is you need assistance on the fluid.

If this is OK or your vehicle is not equiped with a transmissing dip stick, you might want to have the transmission serviced (Fluid and filter changed) The transmission shop can also advise you about the mechanical condition of your bands in your transmission and make adjustements if needed.

Hope this helps.

How many quarts of transmission fluid does my 1999 chevy astro van require?


1999 CHEVROLET TRUCKS ASTRO VAN 4.3L 6-cyl Engine Code [W]
CAPACITIES: Automatic Transmission, 4L60-E Initial Fill..........4.7 liters
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill 4 speed 4L60-E..........10.6 liters

To check fluid level, transmission should be hot and engine running at idle. Pull the transmission dip stick out "red" wipe clean and re-insert. Check level of transmission fluid as indicated on the dip stick using the second reading and make sure the Astro is parked on leveled ground. Add Dexron III or VI as needed and do not over fill.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Where is the dip stick located on a 2003 galant, I think I am low on fluid but can't find the dip stick to check the automatic transmission fluid


There isn't one it is checked through your computer and the check engine light should come on. Take to a tranny shop and ask them.
