I believe that one does not have a dipstick. You need to check the fluid by removing the fill plug located under the car on the passenger side of the transmission between the transmission pan and the oil pan. It will be a small brass colored plug.

The fill plug is on top of the transmission about in the center near where the transmission bolts to the engine. It will be red and look like a small oil cap.

The vehicle needs to be level and running in order to check the fluid level. The exhaust pipe is right there also so you'll have to be careful not to burn yourself while you are checking.. If you have the front jacked up and not the rear the level will be off.

The vehicle needs to be running before you pull the level plug on the underside of the transmission.

Once the vehicle is level, running, and up to temp pull the plug. make sure you have a drain pain under the car to catch any fluid that may come out. If a little fluid comes out than it is full. If no fluid comes out you'll have to add some through the fill plug on top of the transmission. Remove the fill cap and add fluid until it starts to come out of the hole. Reinstall the plug. Your good to go!

Where is the transmission dip stick located


not all cars have tranny dipsticks, you would have to check your manual, or call the dealer. trannys with no dipsticks are called sealed transmissions, and unfortunately they are still doing that in new cars...stupid idea!

Need to check transmission fluid on my 1999 c180 elegance.can i use engine oil dip stick


No, absolutely not. Check the transmission fluid level with the transmission dip stick. The oil level dip stick may not be the same length and the markings are not the same. Overfilling a transmission may cause damage. Do not have one then you need to get one. What has happened have you lost it?
