The transmission is sealed, and the procedure to fill it is rather involved. The car must be cold, like let it sit overnight. Get the car up in the air. There is a standoff plug where you fill it, and a drain plug. Make sure the fill plug can be loosened. Then you start the car and run it through the gears for a few seconds. You must fill it while its running, with a pump, and with only approved fluid, not standard ATF fluid. When it is full, it will start to run out, quickly put the fill plug back in, and thats it.

How do i top up my auto transmission on audi a6 2006


The German manufacturers came up with a great new idea that many others have now copied and that is to eliminate the under bonnet filler tube and dip stick. Some of the German manufacturers have decided to eliminate engine oil dip sticks as well. These people are just so innovative.

Thus you have to use the correct filling procedure as laid down by the manufacturer which involves filling the auto transmission from under the vehicle by removing the filler plug on the side of the auto unit and pumping in the fluid. It used to be so much easier.
Obviously this is best done on a lift/hoist and the vehicle must be level.

How to check & change oil in automatic transmission on 2000 Audi S4

At the bottom of the automatic gearbox (tiptronic) you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First one (in front of the car) is for emptying = drain plug, and second one is for filling = filler plug. Tightening torque is 24 Nm for drain plug, and 80 Nm for filler plug.

Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) checking:
1. Requirements for check:
1.1. Vehicle standing on level surface.
1.2. Transmission must not be in fail-safe mode.
1.3. Shift lever in "P" position, parking brake applied.
1.4. Engine idling.
1.5. Air Conditioner and heater OFF.
1.6. ATF temperature must not exceed 104 Fahrenheit degree (40 Celsius degree) at start of test.
1.7. Only ATF with designation ESSO LT 71 141 may be used. Do not use any lubricant additives.
1.8. Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF - part number: G 052 162 A2 (1 liter wrapping)
1.9. An ATF level check when transmission oil temperature is too low results in overfilling, when too high results in underfilling.
2. CAUTION: Too much or too little ATF will affect the operation of the transmission. The ATF level must be checked at regular intervals.
3. The oil level is correct if a slight amount of oil runs out when ATF temperature is between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg) (caused by increase of oil level when heated). For warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg).
4. Hang filled ATF reservoir VAG 1924 as high as possible.
5. Shift lever in "P" position, engine running at idle.
6. Place oil drip pan under transmission oil pan.
7. Remove ATF filler plug (at the bottom of the automatic gearbox you will find 2 threaded plugs on below surface. First (in front of the car) is for emptying, and second is for filling up.
8. With ATF temperature between 86 Fahrenheit degree (30 Celsius degree) and 113 F deg (45 C deg), for warmer climates, 122 F deg (50 C deg), a slight amount of oil will flow from filler hole when ATF level is correct.
9. If necessary drain or top off ATF to attain correct oil level. Top ATF with filler hook from VAG 1924 ATF reservoir. Insert VAG 1924 (tool) ATF reservoir filler hook into filler hole and top off until a slight amount of oil flows from filler hole.
NOTE: Fit filler hook into one of the oil deflector cap slots placed on the filler opening.
CAUTION: Do not press filler hook upward or oil deflector cap can be pushed off.
10. Reinstall ATF filler plug. Tightening torque is 80 Nm.

Please do rate my response. Thanks!

Does a 5 speed manuel transmission use transmisson fluid and where is the dip stick to check the fluid?


Manual transmissions use gear oil, not automatic transmission fluid.
There will be a filler plug on the side of the gearbox. The gear oil should be filled up to the very bottom of the filler plug hole.

How to refill brake fluid in 1995 hyundai elantra?


Hello,

Manual trans: remove the filler plug (high up on the drivers side of the car... looking at it from underneath) stick a thin hose attached to a fluid pump into the trans until it touches the bottom then **** the old fluid out. then fill to the bottom of the fill plug hole with the correct oil (75W-80W gear oil), replace the filler plug.
Automatic trans: remove the drain plug on the pan, drain into a container, remove pan, clean or replace filter/screen, replace pan, fill with correct oil (not common Dexron II or III -- Hyundai ATF SP-II or Chrsyler spec 7176).

Where is the filler tube for transmission on the honda passport 97


There are 2 drain plugs in the transmission oil pan. one is higher than the other one. you have to have it running in park, take the upper plug out, fill the trans up with a small hand pump through that hole untill it the trans fluid out that hole. . if you drained the trans already you can top it off before starting. keep it in park with the parking brake on so you dont run your self over. it would be ok to run it through the gears once its full and see if you need to top it off again.
its a pain, and messy. have a drain pan there some rags. and gloves.
