Almost every car: With the engine running (and preferably warmed up), pull the stick and check the level against the markings on the stick (if it's cold it will show lower than warm or hot)

If it's a car like my 1998 Sunfire with the 2.4l engine - there's no stick, so you have to have it running and warm, and on a level surface, and there's a little plug on the side of the tranny housing you can pull out to check - the level should be right up to the level of that plug.

Where do you check the transmission level on a 1995 Polaris 425 Magnum. How do you add fluid?

on any vehicle with an automatic transmission, there are two dip sticks. One to measure oil level, and the other transmission fluid level( typically labled 'check with engine running in park'). To add transmission fluid requires a funnel to introduce fluid via the dip-stick tube.

If you have a manual transmission, then you don't need transmission fluid, you need gear oil, which can be measured at the transmission and added at the same port.

Where is the automatic fill plug located and how much fluid

I assume you want to add transmission fluid. On most vehicles with automatic transmissions, you remove the transmission fluid dipstick and insert a funnel into the dipstick tube. Slowly pour the fluid into the funnel. Caution: do not overfill.

Follow the instructions in the owner's manual for checking the fluid level. Generally, it must be done with the engine running. If the fluid level has been very low, it is a good idea to shift the lever into each position (with the foot firmly on the brake and the engine idling), and let the fluid circulate for a few seconds before going to the next position. Shift into the gear recommended for measuring the fluid level, then check how much you need to add. On some older cars, you had to measure it in "Drive" - rather dangerous if your parking brake was not in good working order. Most newer cars now calibrate the fluid level for "Park."

How to check the oil. The dip stick has no method of measuring other than a small white knob on the end.

Done with scanner and it reads out oil level in mm. If oil level low, a warning with show on cluster.

Most modern vehicles measure oil level this well as the transmission.

The Dip Stick tube is only for sucking out the oil. This is known as 'Top Side Evacuation'.

Some DIY types collect and measure the drained oil and refill with same amount.

Where is the place to put transmission oil

The transmission fluid goes in the same tube that holds the dip stick that you check the fluid levels with. You will need a funnel, and be sure to use only manufacturer recommended fluid in your vehicle. Be careful not to over fill. Ensure the Galant is at operating temperature by driving it for about 10 minutes. 2: Open the hood of the Galant and locate the automatic transmission fluid reservoir and dipstick on the driver's side of the engine. The dipstick is labeled "ATF" and is red. 3: Pull the dipstick out of the reservoir, wipe it clean with a rag and reinsert it. Remove it once more and take the measurement of the current fluid level. Do not add any fluid if the fluid is already at the "Full" line; overfilling the reservoir can damage the transmission. If the measurement is between the "Full" and "Add" lines or below the "Add" lines, then continue to Step 4: Insert a funnel into the reservoir and pour a small amount of transmission fluid into the container. Check the fluid levels again by removing the funnel and inserting the dipstick into the reservoir. Pull the dipstick back out and read the fluid level on the dipstick. Continue this process until the fluid is at the "full" line. If you would like to do a transmission filter kit I have found a site with full color pictorial and instructions. Pretty handy!!!

How do i check the fluid levels in a vw polo 1998 automatic gearbox from a motor mechanic thats been out the game for a while

If you have an 01M 4spd automatic transmission which uses VAG part # G 052 162 A2 ATF only. I'll suggest buy the seal and filter kit from VW and uses 3.2qt when you replace the fluid. Topping off require a different procedure. A VAG 1552 Scan tool is required when correcting the ATF level measured by reading temperature of the fluid.

How and where you change automatic oil on

Its not as hard as people make you think. The car needs to be level. Its under the car in the middle. The easiest way is to check out you tube for the VW transmission oil change. Use this, just copy and paste.

How do you check trans fuild on honda passport 2001

Sorry to tell you this, but there is no dipstick. Honda says this in its maintenance materials:
Check automatic transmission fluid level only if leakage is suspected.
Automatic transmission has no dipstick, so fluid level can only be
measured by checking fluid temperature with a PGM Tester and removing
the overfill screw. Refer to the Service Manual for details.
