If you mean to add tranny fluid, you put it in the dipstick tube. Facing the engine from the front, it is to the left at the back of the engine

Where do you add transmission fluid for a 2007 chevy hhr


Chevrolet recommends that the transmission fluid be changed every 50,000 miles, but Chevy intended the transmission to be serviced only by authorized repair shops. For this reason, the HHR does not feature a transmission fluid dipstick. However, the HHR's transmission fluid can still be checked without exotic tools.

It is important to check the fluid level only after the fluid has circulated throughout the transmission by shifting through the gears. Failing to allow the fluid to circulate will result in a false fluid level reading. Turn the engine on and shift through each of the transmission's gears with the brake pedal depressed and the parking brake applied. The car should be allowed to idle in each gear position for approximately five seconds. Turn the engine off, then climb underneath the passenger's side of the vehicle. A small plug is located on the passenger's side of the transmission. Remove this plug with a wrench. Turn the engine on and observe whether any fluid drips out of the transmission plug's opening. If fluid does begin to drip from the plug opening, the transmission does not require additional fluid. Turn the engine off and install the transmission plug.

If fluid did not begin to drip out of the transmission's plug, transmission fluid must be added. Turn the engine off, then remove the black breather cap from the top of the transmission. The circular breather cap twists into the transmission. Twist the cap in a counterclockwise direction until it detaches from the transmission. Because of the lack of clearance between the breather cap's opening and the bottom of the vehicle, transmission fluid cannot be poured into the breather cap opening. Attach a fluid pump to a quart-sized container of new transmission fluid. Insert the pump's hose into the transmission through the breather cap's opening. Turn the engine on, then actuate the pump until fluid just begins to drip out of the plug's opening on the side of the transmission. Screw the breather cap onto the top of the transmission, then install the plug with a wrench.

Were do I find the power steering cap an transmission fluid cap..


under your hood you will see three fluid reservoirs only two of wich will have twist caps. one is for water and the other is for power steering... the smaller one will be your power steering reservoir. as for the transmission fluid it is to be poured directly into the transmission. there will be a cap or bolt on the top that will need to be removed, after that you will need a long set funnel to reach it. good luck.

I have no gears forward or reverse. My Vehicle is a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 Hemi with 170,000 on the clock. Fluid is clean and full with no leaks. I have the following trouble codes:...


Your scanner will give you the code but it will not tell you how to fix your vehicle. Scanners basically tell you what systems to check or what systems are failing.

These are what your codes mean:

P0700: Transmission Control Module
- Shorted or open circuit within transmission control module (TCM)
- Failure of transaxle control module. This is just a informative code.

P0734: Gear ratio error in 4th gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0732: Gear ratio error in 2nd gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0731: Gear ratio error in 1st gear
- Low transmission fluid level
- Dirty transmission fluid
- Shift solenoids
- Transmission mechanical problems
- Transmission hydraulic control circuit

P0871: Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor Switch C

P0876: Transmission Fluid Pressure Sensor Switch D

Emissions Codes:

P0400: Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction
- Harness or connectors (EGR volume control valve circuit is open or shorted.)
- EGR volume control valve stuck closed
- EGR volume control solenoid valve
- Dead (Weak) battery
- EGR temperature sensor and circuit
- EGR Valve

How to fix :
- Clean EGR Valve
- Repair EGR harness or connector
- Replaced EGR volume control solenoid valve
- Replaced EGR volume control valve

P0440: EVAP Emission Control System Malfunction
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

P0456: EVAP Control System Leak Detected (Very Small Leak)
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

P0441: EVAP Emission Control System Incorrect Purge
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Incorrect fuel tank vacuum relief valve

How to fix:
- Retight or replaced fuel tank filler cap
- Replaced damage or leaking EVAP canister

Based on the info check your EVAP system. I would check for leaks and maybe replace the EGR and the canister.

For the transmission check the TCM also you may need to take it to a mechanic though.

Hope this helps a little.

WHAT DOES THE TRANSMISSION CAP HAVE ON IT?


Transmission cap? To add fluid? If that is what you mean, there is no cap and filler tube. You use an automatic transmission fluid funnel (long and thin) and refill the fluid through the transmission's dipstick tube. Pour the fluid in slowly and check level often to avoid overfilling. Use the correct ATF specified by GM and DO NOT overfill your transmission. I hope this helps.

Cant find dip stick for tranny fluid 2004 sunfire


GM went to sealed transmissions. That car doesn't have a transmission dipstick.

There's a fill bolt that needs to be removed from the transmission while the car is on a level surface. If transmission fluid comes out, then you're at the proper level. Otherwise fill until fluid starts to come out. (Similar to what would be done on a manual transmission)

Look at the top of the transmission for a little red cap(like the oil fill cap) this is where you add fluid. If you want to check fluid condition, you need to remove cap and stick something in there and smear the fluid on a piece of paper to see color.

Hope this helps you out

Adding Transmission Fluid


Get a funnel and pour in the transmission fluid where the transmission oil dipstick is. The plastic container with the yellow cap is probably your radiator fluid (engine coolant)
