SOURCE: dipstick for transmission fluid

There is no transmission dip stick... it is a sealed system and no service is necessary. If it's leaking, you'll need to have the seal replaced.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak

checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

SOURCE: no dipstick to put transmission fluid into

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.

Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.

How do you top up transmission fluid?

I never heard top up but have heard of top off. That just means to fill to the level. Checking your transmission fluid is just like checking your oil. The cap usually will even say transmission fluid. Just pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean then put back in. Pull back out again and on the dipstick there will be markings for the level of fluid. Some say "add" at the bottom of the dipstick. Some say "max" and "min" for the levels. Check to see where its at on the dipstick and add some if it is low.

My 2001 ford taurus will not move at all with car on. Can place in all gear & still will not move a inch. What has happen

with the engine running,in park, open the hood. pull the transmission dipstick,located on passengers side,just below the windsheild.the handle may be red,or yellow.pull the dipstick out and read it.the fluid level should always be in the crosshairs or XXXXXX's it has a full reading, at the top of theXXXXX's but only while the engines running and motors warm. it [the dipstick has a cold reading,but more acurate when read warm,and in PARK. always use FOMOCO transmission fluid when adding transmission fluid to your car. that means ford motor company fluid only.[fomoco] is it leaking fluid at all? do you see red fluid anywhere that you park the car? if so,then you have either a bad front or rear transmission seal. either ones a better thing than a bad transmission ,sounds like you're just low on fluid,but i got to ask where the fluid leaked or where it went? suggest that you check for leaks. you may add fluid to your transmission and it moves, but be alert,look for a leak somewhere.thank you for choosing

No power on hills or flat.revs up high rpm before shifting.errattic shifting

First check the level of fluid in your transmission, if its an automatic , there will be a dipstick on top of transmission and there is a line on dipstick when its warm running usually in neutral.( will say on dipstick if you run vehicle in neutral or in park), if car is a standard, theres a plug on side of trans. usually have to do this under vehicle. pull plug with car level and put finger in hole and if you cant feel fluid on finger its low. also in automatics if fluid is dark and not clear or bright red and stinks (with a burnt smell ) its usually means you have transmission problems. if fluid is low you have a leak and if went to long low on fluid chances are transmission is bad.

Often the cause is low transmission fluid. Follow the instructions in your manual for checking it, because unlike checking your oil level, checking transmission fluid levels require that the vehicle is running.

Please, by no means do this check if you are uncomfortable doing it. Have a "gearhead" friend that you trust or a mechanic show you how.

Most manufacturers ask that you start the car, and while holding down the brake pedal, slowly shift through reverse and then all your forward gears, then place the car back in park.

Next (with the car running- CAREFUL!), find the transmission dipstick under the hood, pull it out, and wipe it off. Put the dipstick back in, pull it out and check the level. If it is low, you need to add some transmission fluid of the type specified by your manual into the dipstick hole (you will need an inexpensive transmission fill funnel), a little at a time, and keep checking it as described above until it is at the FULL mark.

It is important to note that the dipstick is marked FULL HOT (car is warmed up) and FULL COLD (car is NOT warmed up) because transmission fluid expands quite a bit and overfilling is bad for your tranny!

I own a Jeep with a Chrysler "straight six" engine (one of the best motors ever!) and my transmission slipped because of low fluid - I added a bottle of "transmission stop slip and stop leak" fluid to it and topped off the remainder with the proper type of transmission fluid, and now, seven months later, I do not lose any tranny fluid and it shifts great! The stop leak is more expensive, but IMHO it is worth the cost.

Please rate my solution when you get a chance!

Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny

This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    I believe that I have a transmission leak and I am low on fluid but I have no idea how to put it in. Also I used to have an isuzu trooper that took 5W 30 oil instead of transmission fluid is that the case...

    Probably not the case on the oil. If you're not certain about the oil, I would call a dealership to find out. Most vehicles use Dextron/Mercon and you have to use a funnel and put it in through the dipstick tube. Hope this helps

    I recently had a leak in my 2002 Grand Am SE 3.4L transmission due to a spot which wore a hole in the hose. Fliud leaked out at gas station and I drove it a mile home. My dad fixed the line and we dropped...

    The manual says there is no dipstick. The transmission is a sealed unit, filled for life. It's really a bad design to not have a dipstick, because transmissions will weep a little fluid at times and it's a good idea to check the level once in a while. The Manual says that if it leaks fluid you have to repair or replace the transmission. Not a valid repair when the car has 160,000 miles and it's a pint low. There's a plug on the passenger side at the bottom of the transmission to check the level (with the engine running, so it needs to be on a lift) and there's a yellow filler plug hidden under the air cleaner on top of the transmission.

    If you put in 5 quarts, it is either too much or too little. Both cases will cause the fluid to foam, causing jerky shifting. Mine was too low at 185,000 miles and it was banging shifts when hot.

    By the way, that transmission needs about 9.8 quarts after a pan drop and filter change, so your 5 quarts is way too little.

    Transmission only shifts when aceratated high what is the problem

    Sounds like you have low fluid levels in the transmission. I bet that when you do get a shift it really clonks into gear. Too much of that will rip the input shaft off on the splined end. Check the fluid dipstick for the transmission (not the one for the engine oil) and if low top it up to just short of the maximum. Do not use engine oil to top up it needs proper transmission fluid. If the fluid is low check that there are no drips coming from any leaks..sometimes leaks occur around the seal where the speed sender cable enters the transmission casing.
