The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Although there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.

I have a 1998 Saturn SC2 engine stutter.


Sounds to me like you need to change the transmission fluid the filter is under the air filter box and the drain plug is a 17mm on the bottom of the trans closest to the engine about mid ways between the car warm the car up good then drain the fluid beware the fluid will be hot the filter is like a oil filter it just unscrews fill with proper fluid do not over fill hope this helps you

Where is the transmission filter located in a 2002 Saturn SL1 car?


It is actually on the outside of the transmission on top parallel to the ground. It is toward the front of the car and is a large oil filter looking spin on filter.

There is no pan on an S-series car, simply a dipstick, external filter, and drain plug. Pretty much like changing the oil on your engine, actually easier!

How to drain transmission fluid in 1993 saturn sl2?

Good luck

Saturn SC2 manual transmission modification


Manual transmision gears actually bathe in oil and distrubute the lubrication around the gearbox simply by the gears being connected to each other. In these boxes, the oil is not pumped as it is in automatic transmissions.

Some automatics build up oil pressure to shift gears while others use computer control. Manual trannies do build up pressure slightly because the of the meshing gears and the forcing and displacing of oil between the teeth, but nothing like an automatic.

The fluid in auto transmissions is pumped through the filter like it is in the engine. Since manual transmissions don't have a pressurized oil system, you will need add a suitable pump which will take oil from the lowest point in the tranny case and run it through a filter head (available at any hydraulic supply house) and from the filter output, back into the tranny.

You could position the filter in the engine compartment if you like. It sounds like a lot of work with little benifit. You will still need to drill into the tranny to access the oil and back in to replenish it.

I would recommend placing a magnetic plug on the drain (if there is drain) to catch the worn metal parts. If your really eager, just change the tranny oil more often and clean the metal off the magnetic drain plug.

Changing the transmission fluid yourself


On the 2006 Saturn Vue FWD 2.2L there is both an oil plug and a transmission fluid plug. From under your car you will see closer to the middle a wide "L" shaped flat surface, that is for your transmission fluid. There is a plug/bolt on the side of it to drain it. It will drain very slowly so give yourself plenty of time and make sure you have a wide pan to collect because it doesnt stream out, it dribbles and drips all over.
For the oil look for a flat square closer to the front than the transmission fluid pan. You will see a large bolt towards the back on the side of the oil pan. This is where you drain your oil.
For Radiator fluid there is a plug on back side towards the bottom of the radiator itself. If you are unsure where your radiator is... you might want to leave all this to a professional.
