There is clearly something wrong with the transmission. i dont know whether it is a matter of just the stick itself being broken or if it is just sticking in neutral. What should i do?

The 'stick' may be getting loose or rusty. Replace or tighten as necessary underneath the car where it pivots.

If this is ok, then the transmission has a problem.

Do a 2010 Jeep Liberty Have a Automatic transmission dip stick?

Alot of the newer vehicles have maintenance free transmisions so they dont have dip sticks. And if it is maintenance free it will tell you under the hood.

My tension pully asembly has broken 4 times what could cause this

Clearly something else is happening. You didn't say whether it is a manual or automatic tensioner or what specifically has broken.

Mostly these are very reliable.
In the case of a manual tensioner it is important no to over-tension the belt.

Other possible causes are bent or misaligned pulley(s), wrong belt or defective torsional vibration damper (crankshaft pulley).
One final possibility I can think of is an egg-shaped pulley...

My Astra holden has 2 dipsticks one i know is for oil level the other just a /14 inch from the oil dipstick is my question , what is the second dipstick for??

Might you have an automatic transmission?
Automatic transmissions have their own dipstick.
I don't know about Aussies, but here in the states, transmission fluid has red die added to it to prevent your mixing them, and to tell you whether it is engine oil or transmission fluid that is leaking.
If you mix them by mistake, you must drain them and put in the correct fluid, or suffer ruining the engine or transmission, which ever one has the wrong fluid.
Your oil light should not be coming on. That is a different problem.
Oh, yes. There may be a dipstick on the power steering pump it you have power steering, but it should be really small. (short)

Transmission making noise and speedodometer quit, my 1995 corolla the speed odometer quit, the transmission starting making noise and went out of gear and back, is my tranmission broken and or repairable,...

The slipping could be low fluid. If you have an automatic, You didn't mention the type transmission, check the fluid and add if needed. If you have a standard you need to get to the check plug under the vehicle. You check that level by removing the plug and sticking your finger in the hole. The fluid should be to up to the bottom of the check hole. The transmission is most likely repairable and cost will depend on whether it is a Manual or Automatic and what actually needs to be repaired. This could be a simple adjustment to the bands and solenoids in the transmission or a clutch issue but you won't know till you take it to a shop. The speedometer could be a broken cable or broken speed sensor, both are repairable and actually don't cost that much. Another possibility is the speedometer itself having a broken spring inside.

Cant find the dipstick on a standard jeep liberty 2003 to change the transmission fluid

The transmission fluid stick is usually toward the back of the engine.That's right where the engine transmission connect together.It should also be labeled transmission on top of the stick.To check transmission fluid level,you need to let it run about 5 minutes on a level surface,then check the level.When you check it,if you see little metal flakes on the stick,there is something very wrong with your transmission.Good luck!

youve probabally broken a shift fork and you will need to take the transmission in to be refurbished. If your shifter moves freely it could be that your shifter itself has broken which is a much cheaper fix. If you can dissassembel the shifter assembly and check for any serious brakes thats the simple fix. Otherwise take it in and get it looked over as a transmission overhaul is not something that you can do yourself without serious training, patience and organization...

Dead battery leads to transmission fluid leak

the reason your trans blows out fluid after you changed the battery is because the original battery is connected to the ****** vent tube i also had this problemb .i thought the vent tube was for the battery but it is for the transmission solution dont reconnect it to the new battery it dont vent the same and plugs off the vent tube builds up pressure in the trans and bows back out the fill tube ! why ford connected the tanny to the battery ill never know . stuppidty !!!

Where is transmission oil located in the car?

do you mean..dip stick? oil filter? or something like that?

if it is a manual transmission they have a filler hole rather than a dip stick.........

if it is a automatic transmission the dip stick should be located under the hood in the right side "passengers side" or in the drivers side if it is a front wheel drive car....
