This model doesn't have a transmission fluid dip stick, it is a sealed transmission, there is a fill plug on the case of the transmission just above the pan in most cases, the fluid should be just below the plug, u must access this from under the car.

How do I check trans fluid on a 06 750li?I have a dip stick but it doesn't say on dip stick; if I check It with car in neutral or park while engine is running,or do I check it with engine off.


most vehicle auto trans are checked while the engine is running and trans is warmed up to normal operating temp. except hondas which are checked with engine off. pull out the dipstick and the fluid level should be somewhere in between the hash marks. if its low just top off a quarter quart at a time and watch the fluid residue on hash mark on the end of dipstick.

Where is dipstick for transmision on a 2005 chevy equinox


To drain the trans there is a 12 mm bolt on left side of case at bottom

To check & fill ---if you face the side cover & look to the left -down on the case- there is a bolt you remove & the dip stick comes out

You fill with GM T-IV Fluid #88900925

I guess that is avail dealer parts only

Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?


There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.

How to check transmission fluid level


Unfortunately you can not. Chevy put sealed transmissions on most of their cars starting in 2006. It would be out of luck if you got one without a sealed transmission. If you did, look behind the engine on the passenger side for a dipstick similar to your oil dipstick. If you dont see one, you will have to go to the dealership to have it checked.

How do i check trnsmition fluid level in97 chevy malibu ls.I can't find a dipstick in engine compartment.


There isn't a dipstick on the overdrive transmissions this is one of chevys better ideas.This is how you check this car you have to have car at normal operating temp.car jacked up that you can get underneath the middle back part of the trans housing.car running in parkthere are 2 plugs on the back of the housing near the center of the firewall area of the trans they should use either 10mm or 11mm wrench to loosen them you remove upper one only and fluid should drip out this small hole becareful if overfull it will come out all overyou and can burn you if it is hot.Now after all that depending on when the trans was built some of them did have a tiny dipstick that was on top of trans under the brake master cylinder under hood area.GOOD LUCK

Where do I find the dipstick for my transmission on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?


Should be a red handled dipstick on the left hand side of the motor. Not all car's have the dipstick, many types, you have to go underneath, find the upper fill plug on the tranny, remove the plug, and reach your finger inside and you should feel the fluid at the top of the hole.

Transmission fluid on 06 equinox


Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.
