    its a 2006 miata base model automatic transmission........ automatic... I believe there are 2 drain plugs on the bottom of the trans case to empty it out. Confirm if that is correct.. but I cant find the filler tube or dip stick. Unless im completely blind......would I have to fill it on the outside of the transfer case ??????? there is some kind of plug but I would assume it would of been much easier to leave a dip stick somewhere

    thanks for your help

Hi!!
That information is on your vehicle's Owner's Manual. To fill the transmission, you got to find the dipstick, remove it and using a small funnel on the dipstick tube, add 5 qt of the manufacturer's recommended fluid which is Castrol Synthetic ATF+4 Transmission Fluid.

How do u top gearbox oil up on a automatic clio 51 reg


For vehicles without ATF filler tubes and dip sticks accessible in the engine bay, the ATF needs to be pumped in from the side of the transmission and from under the car. There is a specific filling procedure that must be followed. If your particular model has no Auto transmission fluid filler tube with dip stick in the engine bay this is what must be done. If unsure on your particular model then check your owners manual or contact the dealer service people.

If your model has no engine bay ATF filler tube I suggest you get the dealer to do it for you or a transmission business that knows these transmissions and will not overfill it. The vehicle needs to be up on a lift and perfectly level in cases when fluid is required to be pumped into the Auto Transmission from under the vehicle.

These transmissions are sealed units and if fluid needs to be added then you will have a significant leak that needs to be attended to. Running the transmission with low fluid which requires adding to will result in expensive damage to the the unit. If you have a model with no engine bay transmission filler tube and dip stick to check the auto fluid level you will have no idea how much fluid is being lost if you have a leak.

Where can I find the the automatic transmission fluid filler on a 2006 1.4 Honda Jazz and how do I drain off the existing fluid?


If it has a dip stick to check the level it will be around the transmission end of the engine .Accredited auto transmission shops have a suction pump and hose that fits down the dip stick hole to draw out excess oil . Find an accredited transmission shop with experience in your make of car and talk with them to get some idea of what is involved.

Transmission fluid stick


No the manual transmisson does not have a stick. on the transmisson their are two plugs. One for draining and one for filling. In order to check the fluid, pull the higher plug out and feel with a finger in that hole for fluid. To set the level to the correct level you would need to drain and refill the trans. If no leaks are present you should be OK

Checking and servicing the automatic transmission


The cap your reffering to is the dip stick. You need to remove the 10mm bolt that holds it in order to check/fill the trans. The trans takes Nissan J Matic fluid ONLY use of any other fluid will damage the trans and void your warranty(this is why it is bolted in). You will see it printed on the handle of the stick when you remove it. You can use the drain plug on the trans pan to drain the old fluid out and then refill it at the tube with a funnel.

How to fill transmission fluid in a 2006 pontiac G6 Gt


There should be a screw on the front of the trani near the coolant lines. With the engine off you unscrew the filler cap. That's on top of the trani on the driver's side. It has a little gear in fluid symbol on it. Then you take out the screw on the front and fill until fluid comes through the hole left by the screw. Remember to use Dex VI.

Your dip stick tube is your fill tube for your transmission . Make sure your transmission oil is at opperating temp before servicing some instructions are written on the dip stick , Use a small funnel , Add a little at a time (cup). Use the proper fluid , check regularly
