Re: Automatic Transmission 97 metro
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!...

A model from the 1970s should take Dextron. There are or were several types, II III and IV. I'm fairly sure any version of Dextron should work. You might want to check with a real transmission shop to make sure. It should also be stamped into the dipstick.
For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is
recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is
recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid.
It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months
and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.
the power steering has a resavour near the fender with a lid on it remove the lid and it has a dip stick on it as long as it's on the stick it's OK. The transmission uses Mercon dextron III and it's important to check with the engine running and to not over fill it. From the low part to the high it's only half a quart so when adding put in in a litttle at a time and check it each time and if it doesn't look right chack it several times as the oil can be on the sides of the dip tube. and too low is bad too. If in doubt. have this work done by a trained perfessional as being wrong can be very expensive.
GM now recommends dextron 6 or VI in all automatic transmissions.It is a synthetic transmission fluid that was introduced in 2006.They no longer license or police the making of dextron 3 or III that was originally installed in your car.This is why you now find dextron III / Mercon because manufacturers are now combining the specs of both Ford and GM into one fluid.Dextron VI is compatible with all dextron II and dextron III fluids.It is more expensive because it is synthetic.Runs about $4-$6 a quart. You can still use dextron III but GM states you never know what you are getting.Well hope this helps.
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.
I always get either the Chilton's Manual or the Haynes Repair Manual (my favorite) for about $20 - $35 at Auto Zone or Pep Boys or any other Retail Auto Parts Store. These give not only fluid specs [capacities and recommended types], but also step by step detailed instructions on repairing anything wrong with that specific model of car, based on a complete tear down and rebuild. A must for used car owners.
