Why do you need to add fluid into trans. it is a CVT trans, which doesnt require any service unless you are towing with vehicle. its a maintenance free trans unless of course you have a leak. just to give you heads up 1qt. of CVT fluid goes for around $20 a bottle (quart).

How much transmission fluid is needed to do the chevrolet 2013 captiva


it should be in the owners manual under maintenance and capacities it depends on what you are doing, i think in an automatic a dump and fill it 4.6 quarts. remember over filling your transmission is as bad as under filling it and can cause similar issues. Make sure you use the correct fluid, automatic is not the same as manual. check the owners manual for all the information you need.

My automatic Mazda 6 5 speed has a knock when switching from 3rd to 4, seems to do it when transmission is hot knocks harder when rpms are high 1st and second switch fine


Double-check, your automatic transmission fluid level as described in your owner's manual. Otherwise, there may be a "screen" inside the transmission pan that is clogged up. Have you serviced your transmission as recommended by Owner's manual?
There may also be a transmission computer that is not receiving sensor information properly. Salt and corrosion does strange things to connections and information to the computers.

Where do I put the transmission oil in


In what vehicle? Some cars have a sealed system and you cannot add or even check automatic transmission fluid except when the vehicle is taken in for service. Your owners manual should provide this information for you.

Transmission hard shift


follow this troubleshooting section for oil transmission.
n automatic transmission depends on the transmission fluid for transferring engine power to the wheels, shifting gears, lubricating moving parts and cooling down the transmission. Check the transmission fluid when your car is serviced and change it as recommended. Different cars have different ways of checking the transmission fluid level; some require the engine to be shut off (e.g. Honda), some cars don't have a transmission dipstick at all and the fluid can only be checked in a repair shop. Check your owner's manual for proper procedure. This is how the transmission fluid checked on most cars: transmission-fluid1.jpg After the vehicle was driven for a while to let the transmission fluid warm up, place your vehicle on a level ground. Set the parking brake. Make sure the transmission is in "P" (Park) position. Leave the engine running. Find the automatic transmission dipstick (your owner's manual will tell you where it is located). Pull the dipstick out.
transmission-fluid2.jpg Wipe the dipstick off with a clean lint-free rag. Insert it back fully. Pull it out again and check the fluid level. A transmission fluid expands when warmed up, so if the car has been driven for a while (20-30 minutes), the transmission level should be between "HOT" marks. If the vehicle is cold, the level should be between "COOL" marks. Check the fluid condition: a very dirty fluid with strong burnt smell is a warning sign of transmission problems. Normally the automatic transmission fluid should be clean and transparent, as in these photos.
transmission-fluid3.jpg On most cars the new transmission fluid comes red (photo on the left). Over the time it becomes brownish, as in the photo below.
transmission-fluid5.jpg This is how the synthetic transmission fluid looks after two years of driving - it's still clean and transparent. If your fluid looks very dark or dirty, check your owner's manual, maybe it's time to change it. Some manufacturers require to change the transmission fluid at 30,000 or 50,000 miles others specify that you never have to change it - check what's your car owner's manual says.
transmission-fluid4.jpg If the transmission fluid level is low, you can top it up, but be careful not to overfill it. Overfilling the transmission can cause problems. It's very important to use only specified transmission fluid type - check your owners manual or simply visit your local dealer, they always have proper transmission fluid in stock. Incorrect fluid type can damage your transmission. How to top up the transmission fluid: Using a thin funnel, add a small amount of the fluid through the dipstick pipe. Wait for a few minutes - let the fluid drain down. Recheck the level again. Don't overfill

Just looking to add more transmissioin fluid.. not sure where


Underhood Check-check for transmission fluid at the transmission case screwed in with a dipstick. Most GM vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions have such a dipstick.
  • Engine oil--Check the engine oil level.
  • Coolant--Check the radiator coolant level in the reservoir.
  • Battery-- Visually check battery cables and connections.
  • Automatic transmission--Check the fluid level.
  • Master cylinder--Check the fluid level.
  • Power Steering--Check the fluid level.
  • Windshield washer--Check the fluid level.
  • Belts & hoses--Visually check all belts and hoses for wear. NOTE: In addition to the items listed above there are cases with some manufacturer's where odd components such as manual transmission/transaxles and front differentials many be equipped with a dipstick found underhood for fluid level check. If you are unsure of a dipstick on your vehicle, check with the owners manual. 89531p07.jpg

    How do i change the transmission fluid


    1. A variety of fluids are used for different transmissions. Automatic transmissions use something called - shockingly - automatic transmission fluid. Manual transmissions use a variety of oils: regular motor oil, heavyweight hypoid gear oil or even automatic transmission fluid in some cases. Your owner’s manual will tell you what your transmission calls for. So, get to know what type of transmission fluid should be used for your vehicle. This information is contained in your owner’s manual - if not contact the manufacturer who should be able to tell you.
    2. Park your car so that it is level on the ground and leave the gear in Park or Neutral position. Usually the ATF is checked at the idling engine but everything depends on your vehicle. Firstly read your owner?s manual carefully and if it requires the engine to be running, start the car up and wait for it to warm.
    3. Locate the ATF dipstick. Usually it is a bit shorter than the engine oil dipstick. In some cases it will have a label on it, so your job will be made much easier!
    4. Take the dipstick out.
    5. Do the same once again in order to make sure the dipstick indication is true.
    6. The color and smell of transmission fluid can also indicate potential problems. Wipe the fluid onto a white sheet of paper or kitchen towel. It is usually red, and should be transparent and clean in appearance and free of black bits or flakes. It may be more reddish-brown because of age but never should be dark or black or smell of burning. You may not be able to fix the car if the fluid shows some of these characteristics, so just seek professional advice.
    7. Check the top of the dipstick and see if the fluid marking comes up to the ‘full’ line. Also check that you are looking at the warm reading - there should be one for ‘warm’ and one for ‘cold’.
    8. You need to add some more fluid if it does not come to up to the ‘full’ line. Unlike engine oil, transmission oil doesn’t burn up. So if you’re low on transmission fluid, you almost certainly have a leak. Carefully look for leak and if you find it remove as soon as you can. In case it is left it can cause the expensive repair of transmission system.
    9. To add the fluid, simply use a funnel to pour it into the system. Add the fluid slowly and keep checking the dipstick until it reaches the ‘full’ point. Remember, you’ll waste your time taking the ATF out again if you add it too much.
    10. Wipe the dipstick when finish the work and make sure it is back in securely.

    Can't find where to put automatic transmission fluid


    there are two areas where you can add fluid from the front of the vehicle, doesnt matter what kind of car it is, one is for checking the oil the other is for the transmission fluid, but before you add transmission fluid i recommend your flush out the old transmission fluid first so all the grimey old fluid is out and at the same time can notice if any bits of metal are floating around
