You should be able to find a replacement dipstick at any local auto salvage yard. or you can get a new one at an auto parts store but will be more expensive. it should have a bracket attached to it that bolts to the back of the cylinder head where the dipstick runs behind the motor. remove the bolt(s) from the cylinder head and carefully twist the dipstick up out of the transmission. if it is severely rotted be careful not to break it off in the transmission. some models also have a small lock nut on the transmission at the bottom of the the stick tube. also make sure the new dipstick has a good O-ring on the bottom where it fits to the transmission.

Looking for the dip stick to check transmission fluid on a 2004 manual nissan altima... do I have to take it to a dealer or can I take it to get an oil change and they refill it there?

There probably isnt a dipstick if it is a manual transmission. If you need to have the trans fluid replaced you can take it to the dealer or local shop.

this is a so called sealed transmission, there is no dipstick, there is a fill hole on the side of the transmission, u should be able to touch the fluid with your finger with the plug removed and the trans hot.

Locate the dip stick on the transmission its a very short one it on the front of the transmisson. Using a transmission funnel (it has a long skinny hose) pour fluid through the dipstick hole. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA, contact if you need more help
