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.

Transmission warning light coming on,possible problems are low oil pressure or no oil pressure how do i check which one it is and fix it? Thankyou


If you have an Automatic transmission. Lift the hood. Locate the Transmission dip stick. Start the engine and let the engine warm up some. then check the fliud level on the dip stick. On a Manual Transmission, locate the transmission under the vehicle and the fill plug (upper) and drain plug (lower) on the transmission. Remove the fill plug (upper) and see if fluid runs out. If no fluid runs out, add recommeded transission fluid until the fluid starts running out, the replace fill plug..

I can't find the well for the Automatic Transmission Fluid. I see the cap for engine oil, brake fluid and steering fluid but no transmission fluid. Please help!!!


You must locate the transmission dip stick. Look towards the rear near the firewall. It looks like the oil dipstick but larger. You fill up or add transmission fluid through the transmission dipstick hole.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

Leaving a parked spot I noticed some red fluid under the middle front of the car. Someone it was transmission fluid.Also noticed that there was dried fluid same position in the garage where I park the car....


The red fluid is probably transmission fluid. Pick some up on your finger smell it and if possible compare it to known transmission fluid. You invariably have a leak. If you want to find the leak try this.

Locate a large piece of cardboard and place this under your cars engine compartment just after you garage it tonight. The cardboard will tell all on the leak location.

As far as adding trans fluid . . . you only need to ad fluid if it is low. The transmission is often refered to as a transaxle. Also transmission fluid is most commonly added via the transmission fluid dip stick hole via funnel. Be Careful not to over fill the transmission.

Good Luck

Where is transmission fluid located? Where is stick to check?


Transmission fluid is located inside the transmission fluid pan. It is checked and added through the fill tube. The dipstick is located under the hood. You have two dipsticks, one for engine oil and one for transmission fluid. On some models, the dipstick for the transmission fluid may be located under the engine cover in the cab of the van between the driver's and front passenger's seats. If you simply cannot find two dipsticks under the hood, it's under the engine cowl.

Fill tube for the transmission location


Hahaha..! Thats a funny response, but not a solution.

Assuming you're talking about the automatic transmission, there is no fill tube for your transmission. To fill the transmission, check the fluid level, or top off the fluid level, you will need a few different (non-traditional) tools. You will need some way to pump fluid up into the transmission from below due to the fill port being on the bottom of the transmission fluid pan. A bottle of transmission fluid (Dextron III) and a screw on fill tube from WalMart or Autozone can be used to fill the transmission with fluid.

Service to this transmission can be a fairly messy task. Operating temperature must be attained prior to fluid level adjustment. Once operating temperature has been achieved, two drain plugs should be located on the main transmission fluid pan. One plug is positioned vertically higher than the other. With the engine idling, remove the higher plug. When this plug is removed, fluid shouldn't flow from the hole profusely. If it does, then that's an idication that the unit is overfilled. If no fluid flows from the hole at all, then it may be an indication of a low fluid level. Use the desired devised method to pump fluid into the higher plug hole until fluid begins to leak from the plug hole. Once this occurs, then the plug must quickly be reinstalled.

It's messy and inconvenient; I know. Thank you to the General for the transmission and adventures with hot trans. fluid. Gee.., another good example of why Toyota passed ya up

How can i tell if the transmission fluid is low


You may have a dipstick leading to your transmission fluid somewhere in your engine bay.

Alternatively, you'll have to get under the car and look transmission. There will be two plugs. One will be located near the bottom of the transmission (drain plug) and one will be located somewhere up the upper half of the transmission (fill plug). When you open the fill plug, some transmission fluid should leak out. If it does, then it's full. If it doesn't leak out, you'll need to fill it until it does start to leak out and then put the plug back on

Dont know the location for the auto transmission ckeck/fill dipst


Unfortunatly you cannot check the transmission, or add fluid yourself. You have to take it to a dealer, or a transmission specialist. That's not strictly true. The Trooper uses a GM "closed" transmission system. Its possible to do it yourself, but a real pain and requires some kind of pump system to pump in the fluid from below the vehicle. There are 2 filling bolts on the transmission pan, the lower one is the drain, the higher one towards the pan corner is the fill/level plug. You must remove the fill plug and pump fluid into it until it starts to run back out. Run the engine to distribute and warm the fluid, then check the level again, topping up if necessary. Replace the plug using new seal.
