Question about 1994 Chevrolet S-10

1 Answer

The transmission seems to be slipping going down the rd. It has fluid in it, however it dosent have a dip stick. I used a dip stick out of a camaro and it is obviously to long but it does show fluid about 6" up from the end. I relize that is not the accurate way of measuring but i cannot find a dip stick know were. the truck will go down the road but rpm are up and the truck dosent go very fast.

This my not have a dipstick. There should be two plugs on the tranny. A top or side plug for filling and checking fluid and and a bottom plug for draining. The fluid should be at the top of the hole where you can fill it with your finger.
I recommend a fluid and filter change. That usually helps significantly.
If by slight chance it doesn't help, then likely the bands in the tranny will have to be replaced.

    There is a place for a dipstick, its lost. could there be a modular valve gone bad or a vacum line off?

    This can be caused by a stick valve or faulty valve body A shift solenoid can also cause this. Lucas oil can help help loosen up a sticky valve.

Transmission slipping on 03 GMC Envoy. what does iy mean when trans fluid measure high on dip stick?


Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this.
#2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.

While driving by 1997 Toyota Camry yesterday, I thought I felt the a slip in the transmission, and then a warning light came on and it the slipping became worse. Any thoughts?


With the car on level ground, the engine on, and the transmission in park or neutral, check your automatic transmission fluid (ATF) using the dipstick located in the engine bay (procedure: Take the dip stick out, wipe it off, put it back in completely, take out to check level). If the fluid is low, fill with ATF fluid through the same tube the ATF dip stick came from. Caution: It's easy to put ATF in, but difficult to take out. Pour a small amount in and check before pouring more.

My 2002 camaro v6 automatic, when i take off to 30mph the rpms go up to 2000 almost 2.5 then goes back down to 1000rpms..like its screaming. Is the timing off and how would i fix this problem


sounds like the electronic transmission module is going bad or the bands in the transmission are slipping it could also be the torque converter sticking first check the fluid level while engine is warm and running if its low fill to right level if its dark brown then you need to have it flushed and the screen replaced the fluid should be a red color or practically clear

2001 malibu transmission slipping


lvd, Start the car, leave the shifter in park position.
Remove the transmission dip stick, wipe it clean, reinsert the dip stick and verify it is between the add and full mark.
Do not go over the full mark as that will create a slip condition caused by foaming oil.
Let me know.

Low on transmission fluid. The tranny fluid can only be checked by Chrysler, there is no dip stick, because you have to know the motor temp to be able to know where the fluid should register on the dip stick. Crazy!
Its not slipping now, but shifts hard. Has to be looked at by Chrysler again, but its done this since Ive had it, so I didnt realize it was a problem....
