Never really worked with lexus, but most vehicles do not have a transmission fluid drain plug, you need to remove the drain pain of the transmission, the transmision will be behind the engine under the car and there should be 15-20 bolts most likely 10 ml bolts becarefull taking them off, and start at one corner and work around till most of the fluid is drained get a new gasket and filter before you try this i would recomend getting a hayns or chitlon manual for your car from your local auto parts store so you have pics to help you

Hello / I have a car maintenance workshop Question / How change Automatic oil gerbox Renault Megane 2005 Thank you


You need to get under the car, identify the transmission oil pan and look for the drain plug:

Locate the filler plug - it will be on the side of the transmission, higher up. Use bottles with spouts to fill with the correct amount of transmission fluid .. or .. possible .. fill with fresh transmission fluid via the transmission dipstick.

How to check transmission fluid 2010 lexus rx350 fwd


to check transmission fluid in a 2011 lexus rx 350 fwd there is no dipstick, but the transmission is not sealed as the dealer will tell you, thats a gimic for you to bring youre car to a dealership!
simply remove the drain plug from the transmission on the main bottom, the fluid will not come out, there's another fluid retaining plug above that!
next the fluid add hole is on the side of the transmission behind the driver side wheel towards top of transmission!
you simply add fluid whether you pump it in or snake a rubber hose off of a funnel, when the fluid is full it will come by the bypass plug and leak out the drain hole, at this point that's the correct amount of fluid!
simply re install the drain plug and the fluid add plug and you're done!
cost me $100 at a transmission shop to find this out yesterday

Adding transmission fluid


Found this on wiki answers

There is no dipstick on the Malibu transmission. To correctly check fluid level, you must locate the filler cap and the drain plug on the transmission. The filler cap is a red cap located on the drivers side of the transmission between the air filter box and exhaust crossover pipe, almost under the crossover pipe. The drain plug is located on the passengers side of the transmission, just behind where the axle connects to the transmission. It has an 11mm head and can be seen if you lay in front of the passengers front tire, look about 3 inches above the transmission pan. Once you have located these, warm the transmission to normal operating temperature, and with the car running, transmission in park, and the car sitting level, slowley remove the drain plug, have a drain pan under the plug in case any fluid comes out. There should be very little fluid coming out, if there is none coming out re-install the plug, remove the filler cap and put 1/2 quart of fluid in, now run the transmission thru all the gears and back to park. Put the drain pan under the plug and remove the plug, if it is overfull, let it drain until it stops, if it still doesn't have fluid coming out, add 1/2 quart at a time until it does, following the above procedure. Make sure you let any excess fluid drain out and re-install the plug. As noted above, make sure the car is running while checking the fluid. I know it seems complicated but it isn't as bad as it sounds. This same procedure applies to all Chevy Malibus from about 1997 until 2004 if I'm not mistaken.

Ware to fill transmission fluid


Well I guess you have figured out there is no dipstick. There are two plugs in the rear transmission pan. The bottom plug is for draining and the upper plug is for for filling and checking. Trans must be in park with the engine running and fluid should stream from hole when full.

Where is the drain plug located on a Volvo 2000


There no tranny drain plug, you must drop the pan to change the fluid and filter. Standard fluid is fne. I believe Dextron3 but double check with the autoparts store (tell them you have a volvo) and they can lookup the correct type of ATF.

Automatic Transmission question.


If there is no dipstick then most likely their is a level screw. Will look simular to the drain screw. Unscrew and if fluid comes out their is enough fluid in the transwmition. If not fill fluid into the level screw hole until it starts to run out.
