On a manual tranny you DO NOT have a dipstick,you have a square plug on the side of the gearbox for the level only.(manual gearboxes are filled for life.100k)tell all who told you to get a manual......if they can read that is..

Can't find dip stick for transmition

There is a dipstick, most likely rear drivers side of engine but could be elsewhere. There are only 2 dipsticks in engine compartment, one is oil and the other is trans fluid. They should be marked. You add the fluid down the dipstick tube. Engine needs to be running in park and trans needs to be at operating temp to get accurate measurement on fluid. Hope this helps.

How do you add trans fluid?

You probably already know this but to save any confusion just in case you don't, There is a trans fluid dipstick in the engine compartment there are two dipsticks one is oil then (usually on the other side of oil dipstick) trans dipstick. The tube you take that dipstick out of to check the trans fluid level, put a funnel on that and dump it in there. Take extra caution not to over fill. Trans fluid expands as it heats. So if you check it cold there will look like a lot less than there is. Don't add when you have a measurement between low and high.

When i put the car into gear it is stuck in idle and when i rev the rpm's up to 3 then it kicks in and goes. Everytime i stop i have to do this.

the trans is slipping. check the level. with the engine hot, remove the dipstick and wipe clean. it will be located where the engine and trans meet. make sure it's not the oil dipstick. insert the stick and remove. the level should be between the lines or holes. if the fluid level is between those marks, don't add any. the type of fluid is printed on the dipstick. if the level is low add enough to the full mark only. add small quantities. 1/2 qt at a time. then check the level. if the level is good, have the trans fluid and filter changed. if that desn't work, there are mechanical problems.

Where is the dipstick for tranmittion, dont have a manual and cant find where we are losing water

there isnt one. there is a screw with a hex head on the rear of the transmission just above the transmission oil pan. when you take out the screw the oil will just start to drip out. to add trans fluid on the drivers side under the hood you will see a large black tube that comes off the engine. look just below that down into the engine toward the ground and you will see a red cap about 2 inches in diameter it says transmission fluid on it. you just unscrew it. you will need a long funnel or you will spill

I have a 1997 Chevy Cavalier. It doesn't have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid level. Is there another way to check this?

There's a fill plug on the right side of the unit that works just like the ones on stickshift transmission...fill on level ground 'till fluid just spills from plug opening.

I need to find where to add transmision fluid 2000 vette

Is it a manual or automatic trans?If it's auto trans,there will be a dipstick tube near the firewall on the passenger side.You fill the trans through the dipstick tube with a funnel.Careful not to overfill.If it's a manual trans,there will be a plug halfway up the side of the trans.Remove the plug & fill till it starts to leak out the plug hole.Be sure to use the recommended fluid in either case.Good luck,

on some of the newer cars they dont have dipsticks they have a plug near the pan that you have to pull on the trans to check the fluid level and to fill it there is a cap hidden on top of the trans by all the stuff you have to try to bend a funnel around to get in it. dont you love the engineers
