There is a plug in the transmission case by the passenger cv shaft. With the engine running, remove the plug with a 7/16 socket. If fluid runs from the hole it's full. If it doesn't, fill the trans thru the fill cap near the air filter until it runs from the hole. Then replace the plug.

Adding transmission fluid


Add transmission fluid to the same tube you check the transmission fluid level. It will resemble the oil dipstick tube, only it's a larger tube that will accommodate a funnel to add additional fluid. It's important not to overfill the recommended level so try adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is withing the markings on the transmission fluid dipstick.

Where is the transmission stick located on the 2004 CTS


Hello Lillian.
Your CTS does not have a dipstick to check the level.
There is a procedure for checking it but it needs to be done by lifting the car high and level to access a plug on the side of the transmission.
Here is the procedure.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL CHECKING PROCEDURE

  1. Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid normal operating temperature has been reached.
  2. Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
  3. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. CAUTION: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
If you would like further advise on this matter, please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.

How do you check transmission fluid in 2004 Suzuki Forenza


There is no dipstick to check the automatic transmission fluid in the 2004 Suzuki Forenza. It is checked like a manual transmission. You will have to remove the fill plug underneath the car and then add some new transmission fluid until it drizzels out of the hole.

Looking for transmision fluid dip stick


Underhood Check
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    How do I check the transmission fluid?


    In an automatic transmission, the dipstick should be located around back of the engine. You let the engine run to normal operating temp. and you check the fluid level, add as needed. You add through the dipstick tube with a funnel. Hope this helps.

    The fluid level and fill is on the transmission itself, small plug on the drivers side. There is no dipstick for checking transmission fluid level.

    Where do u check the level


    Levels:
    Transmission fluid level:
    The transmission dipstick tube looks like a slightly large oil dispstick tube. It is located near the firewall on the drivers side.
    Set parking /emergency brake.
    With engine warm and running, pull dipstick and clean off with rag. Insert disptick and pull out. Check fluid level.
    To add transmission fluid, use the same dipstick tube and a kitchen funnel (good time to purchase a new funnel for the kitchen). Auto stores also sell "special" funnels with a short rubber hose attached to the end.
    Not all transmission fluid is the same. Purchase only the one made for your vehicle (Volvo?)
    I hope it was the transmission fluid level that you needed.

    If it's red, it's transmission fluid. Coolant would be green. Check the fluid level, don't let it get low, Chrysler minivans are prone to transmission troubles, and low fluid levels over time will ruin a a transmission. And be sure not to overfill, it's just as bad for the trans. Have the leak checked out and repaired, good luck
