Fill through the dip stick hole. There is a special funnel available for this ... find at auto parts stores or discount houses that handle auto accessories. This funnel will have a real long 'snout'. If you have a regular funnel, you can add a piece of 3/8 inch hose to do the same thing. If you have to buy the hose, you might as well buy the funnel.

Make sure you put in Ford approved fluid!!!!!

Check your manual, but you may not have one. Quite a few newer cars no longer have dipsticks for the trans fluid.

SOURCE: i can't add transmission fluid to my 2004 saturn vue

I think your transmission is a 4T45E which does not have a typical dipstick. Check underneath the vehicle on the transmission case above the oil pan on the passenger side of the vehicle and you will see a pipe thread plug. The transmission must be at operating temperature on a level surface and the engine running, you then remove the plug and add new fluid in the fill hole until it runs out the removed plug. You will obviously need a catch basin and do not re-insert plug until fluid has stopped overflowing. Do not turn off the engine during the process.

SOURCE: where is the Transmission fluid dip stick to add

Hello and Welcome to Fixya,
Very sorry Sir, as far as I know. The Dip stick is not included in this model. The transmission fluid must be checked only by the professionals at the dealership's place using special tools for the job (so that the unit shouldn't be over runned by the user and for long life safety of the engine). You should contact the dealer near your place for the completion of the job!

Need to know how to add the transmission fluid


Manual transmission is easy. There is a fill plug on the left axle flange and a drain plug on the bottom (special bit required).

The automatic must be filled while running so it really isn't a DIY.

You add fluid in the same pipe the dip stick is in. Remove the dip stick and insert a funnel and add fluid through there. Check it frequently since there is no way to remove fluid easily if you over fill the transmission.

Transmission warning light coming on,possible problems are low oil pressure or no oil pressure how do i check which one it is and fix it? Thankyou


If you have an Automatic transmission. Lift the hood. Locate the Transmission dip stick. Start the engine and let the engine warm up some. then check the fliud level on the dip stick. On a Manual Transmission, locate the transmission under the vehicle and the fill plug (upper) and drain plug (lower) on the transmission. Remove the fill plug (upper) and see if fluid runs out. If no fluid runs out, add recommeded transission fluid until the fluid starts running out, the replace fill plug..

I can't find the well for the Automatic Transmission Fluid. I see the cap for engine oil, brake fluid and steering fluid but no transmission fluid. Please help!!!


You must locate the transmission dip stick. Look towards the rear near the firewall. It looks like the oil dipstick but larger. You fill up or add transmission fluid through the transmission dipstick hole.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.


if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.

How do I check the transmission fluid, and do I add the transmission fluid to the same place as where the dip stick is?


Pull the dip stick out and check it while the truck is running in park, Yes you add it through the dip stick tube if necessary, but a little at a time don't over fill it.

Where do you fill the automatic transmission?


If you have a tranny dipstick, then you would need a long tranny type funnel and fill there.
If you do not have a dip stick, then you would have to raise the vehicle, and look at the tranny. There will be a higher and a lower plug on it. Remove the higher plug and stick your finger in the hole. If you feel fluid, then it is full.
