Hi:
Specifically, you remove the transmission dipstick and use a narrow funnel to pour transmission fluid in the transmission till it is full. Remember to check your fluid level after the transmission is warmed up, and the car is running, gearshift in Park.

You most have a dipstick to be able to check the level of the trany fluid, most be on the side of the trany closer to the front bumper or betwen the engine and the master cylinder, if you do,remove the dipstick then just ad your fluid with a funnel in it, bit by bit(with the car runing on park position at idle speed .the car as to be warm enough) until you got the proper level.But if you d'ont have any dipstick,it as to be under the car on the side or an other of the trany (the car as to be level and not runing) it's gona be a plug like the oil pan remove it put your finger in the hole if you can feel the oil that mean the level is fine if not you gona need a special (tool) or funnel to be abel to ad the fluid!..i hope this will help you! please reply! thanks...lipak!...

I have a 1990 Geo Metro with 3cyl and auto trans. The problem i am having wit it is I have no forward or reverse gears? I know the pump is working as i checked fluid level with engine off and on. when on...


When was the last transmission fluid ATF and transmission filter change?


The recommended interval is 2 years or 24,000 miles.


Is the ATF color a lite pink color or it's DARK RED?


Any burn smell?


Do the old fashion drop the trans pan and filter change.


DO NOT GO TO shop that use a machine to flush your automatic transmission.

====

Most Metro automatic can go up to 140,000 miles before needing a rebuilt.

If the ATF is in lite pink and it's not burn then the most likely cause are

1)lock up torque converter is not functioning

2)transmission filter is clogged


Please rate my answer if it's useful to you.

Thanks

Wheni drive Geo Metro 1997 over 1 hour the transmission does not work.


Does your car have an automatic transmission? If so start by checking the fluid level. There will be a dipstick in engine compartment that is for the transmission. This you will have to do by having the engine running and transmission in park. Pull dipstick out and check were the reading is on the dipstick. If it is low add transmission fluid. Note: Check owners manual for the correct type of fluid that should be used for your cars transmission. I have included a link that will help you with doing this procedure. http://www.ehow.com/video_104_check-automatic-transmission.html
If this doesn't help there are bigger problems going on inside the transmission. And if your car is using transmission oil you should get the leak checked out. I hope hope that this is helpful.

Someone put Dexron 2 automatic transmission fluid in the manual transmission of my 1992 geo metro. If I put the GL-5 75w in there, will it cause a problem?


I would first drain the transmission fluid out completely first. Then go ahead and add the correct fluid ( the GL-5 75w) sounds like the correct fluid you should use.
