If it is like the 2004 then you pull the speedometer drive unit and top it up via the hole in the housing. The level is between the two ridges on the drive unit.

Need to know how much automatic transmission fluid goes in where the dip stick is. It is low(bout the very bottom of the dip stick) and I need to buy some more but dont know how many quarts.

Your only going to add approx. 1 pint if the level is reading towards the bottom of the stick. 1 quart will fill the trans to the correct level, and you will have some left over. Do not over fill, add a liitle and check the level frequently.

How much tranamission fluid does my 1997 sable hold

If you have your owners manual, there is a section containing the capacities for all fluids. You may also simply check your fluid level, with a running motor and warm transmission. If the stick indicates add, start with a 1/4 quart and work your way up. Unless there is a problem with the trans, there is no real reason to ever add fluid unless your are flushing the transmission.

Where do you put the transmission fluid on a 2008 Kia Spectra?

Locate the transmission dipstick. To add transmission fluid, simply remove the dipstick and insert a funnel in tube, then slowly add fluid. Do not overfill, as this will cause the transmission to slip and possibly cause damage.

Kia sedona automatic transmission gearbox

To fill the transmission fluid, you need a funnel that fits into the dipstick tube, add fluid there. If the fluid is black and smells burnt, that's bad. I would have the fluid changed. These transmissions don't have a filter, probally a bad idea.
