Where do I put in transmission fluid on aBuick Rainier 2004 someone told my wife not put it down the dipstick?

Buick has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual (typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities.) When adding transmission fluid to your Rainier, be sure to add it slowly as the transmission fluid capacity is reached quickly and it is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill. You can add fluid through the dipstick tube! Hope this helps. May god bless!

Where do you add the transmission fluid for a 2010 chrysler town & country on the engine is it where it says dealer only

The automatic transmission dip stick and filler tube have been removed from many later model auto transmissions now so you cannot check fluid levels yourself or add fluid easily to these units.

I assume you have the V6 engine and if you check the engine bay you will find no transmission dip stick and filler tube there. In these cases you have to add fluid by pumping fluid in after removing a filler plug on the case of the transmission from under the vehicle and it needs to be perfectly level when this is done.. There is a specific procedure for this which varies from unit to unit because you need to ensure the transmission is not over filled.

Unless you know what you are doing and use the correct filling procedure this is not a do it yourself task and it is best done with the car perfectly level up on a workshop lift/hoist.

How much fluid do we need to fell transmission

It varies by make. Remember most transmission fluid is locked into the torque converter and didn't come out even when you changed the filter. So knowing the capacity isn't helpful. Filling from a filter change usually doesn't take much fluid. Maybe 3-5 quarts. Just add fluid one quart at a time with the engine off. Start the engine with the transmission in neutral and check fluid level. Repeat this process until it reaches the cold full mark. Then start the engine and let it warm to operating temperature. Check the fluid level again, it should now be on the hot mark. If it's not add some more until it is. Remember all checks should be done with the engine running and transmission in neutral but you should only add fluid with the engine off for safety reasons.

I just need to know where i put the transmission fluid in at

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to find your transmission dipstick. Pull it out and you add the transmission fluid at this point. Be careful not to add to much cause it can mess up your transmission. Add small amounts at a time.

Where do i add transmission fluid in a 97 c1500

If you know where the automatic transmission dipstick is, under the hood close to the firewall, (where you check your fluid), this is also where you add fluid. You will need a funnel with a small discharge end to fit into the dipstick tube. Good Luck. i hope this is very helpful!

Where is the fill plug you remove to add transmission fluid to a 6 cylinder automatic transmission

From what I know... there isnt a "plug" for the transmission fluid. You use the transmission dipstick to add fluid into the tube. Simply place the opening of the container of fluid against the dipstick and pour slowly.. the fluid should run down the dipstick into the tube. good luck
