How do I add transmission fluid to a 97 rodeo


Add fluid at the tube where the dipstick for the tranny is, never add fluid to a cold transmission, it must be hot, never overfill, a little low on hash marks is good.

in the absence of car manual, fill initially with one liter/qrt of transmission fluid. check for leaks and start engine. with transmission in park, slowly add transmission fluid with engine at idle. constantly monitor transmission fluid level with vehicle on level position until fluid level in "cold", then drive vehicle approximately for one mile until fluid is warmed up or hot. recheck fluid level with engine idling and on park. Add if necessary until fluid level in Hot position in dip stick. then your done. write down how much fluid you added for future reference.

Pt cruiser transmission stick


I would go by the hot reading of the cars transmission fluid. Check while in park and idling, check as you stated on level ground. Wait until the car temperature reaches normal operating temperature then check the fluid, not once but at least two, even three times to make sure your reading is accurate. If it shows a cold reading still then add fluid until it is within the hot reading area/marks. NOTE: be aware that when it says hot meaning the fluid in the transmission is hot, not just the cars motor. So you may want to drive it around to warm it up then come back and park it on a level surface and leave it running. Wait 5 mins or so then go out and check the fluid, again it should read between the hot marks if not, add until it does. Hope this clarifies the proper way to check your transmission fluid.

Need to add transmission fluid to 2001 kia rio


Add fluid through the dipstick tube with a small funnel. When checking level, car should be at operating temperature (engine and transmission warmed up), and put in park on a level surface, engine idling. Check the fluid level, shut off car, and add fluid as needed.
It is important not to overfill, as that can lead to damage from foaming and loss of fluid pumping through the transmission. And fluid should be hot when checked, because transmission fluid expands when hot. The level will be higher on the dipstick when hot than when fluid is cool.
Now if you have a manual transmission, there is no stick for checking level. You remove the fill plug, a large bolt on the side of the case about half-way up on the case, and see if fluid level is right up to the bottom of the plug hole.

Where do I add transmission fluid on a 1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette?


You add fluid to the transmission dipstick tube using a long-neck funnel sold at auto stores. Use DEXTRON III fluid. Don't overfill, have car on level surface, hot, and in park. I hope this helps you. Mark

If your transmission fluid shows add, how much should you add?


Hello klb.

You should check your transmission fluid after it has been driven and hot.
Also on level ground and running in park.
The fluid level will rise when it is hot so if you add when cold it may overfill.
So if you are checking hot add about a half quart and recheck.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Where do I check the transmission fluid on a 1997 Hyundai excel


Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.

Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed. Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.

DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. 2. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area around the dipstick. 3. With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking brake applied, start the engine. 4. The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 5. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the "N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is accurate. 6. Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range.
