SOURCE: Transmission fluid type and level

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!

The transmission is sealed. It is intended the fluidis to never need to be checked or changed. The dealer has a probe to check this function.

I believe you have a sealed trans. There is small window on the trans to check level. Not real useful though.

The transmission fluid is not to be checked or touched unless there is a malfunction in the system and the fluid has to be drained to repair it. The transmission is sealed form the factory and the fluid lasts the lifetime of the unit.

SOURCE: how to check manual transmission fluid level on

oh the side of your transmission, above the halfway point, there will be a plug that you can open. (don't open the plug on the bottom of the transmission as that's the drain plug). When you open the plug, some fluid should leak out meaning it's at the right level. If nothing leaks out, pour some fluid in until it starts to run out and then replace the plug.

Where can I locate the transmission fluid level on my 2003 jetta 2.0L gas


There is a small allen head plug on the bottom of transmission (6 mm).This where you you check the fluid .The transmission has to be at least 130 f and the engine idling in park on level ground.Fluid should drip from the hole if trans is full and you must use the factory vw fluid ( @ 25.00 quart) to fill.There is a 10 mm allen head plug on the top of transmission near the linkage that is the fill point.Good luck.These plugs strip out very easily , use the correct size and a high quality tool.

How do you know when you need to change your transmission fluid in my 2002 ford explorer


This is in the owners manual pages 269 and 270. TRANSMISSION FLUID
Checking automatic transmission fluid (if equipped)
The automatic transmission does not have a transmission fluid dipstick.
Refer to your scheduled maintenance guide for scheduled intervals for fluid checks and changes. Your transmission does not consume fluid. However, the fluid level should be checked if the transmission is not working properly, i.e., if the transmission slips or shifts slowly or if you notice some sign of fluid leakage.
Transmission fluid should be checked and, if required, fluid
should be added by a qualified technician.
Do not use supplemental transmission fluid additives, treatments or cleaning agents. The use of these materials may affect transmission operation and result in damage to internal transmission components. Checking and adding manual transmission fluid (if equipped)
1. Make sure the vehicle is on a level surface or level hoist.
2. Clean the filler plug or dirt and debris.
3. Remove the filler plug and inspect the fluid level.
4. Fluid level should be at bottom of the opening.
5. Add enough fluid through the filler opening so that the fluid level is at the bottom of the opening.
6. Install and tighten the fill plug securely.
Use only fluid that meets Ford specifications. Refer to the Lubricant Specifications in this chapter.

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

    Check trans fluid level. May need to flush trans fluid and filter and adjust bands. First gear and reverse are first to go out. Low fluid level would cause slipage

    Low Transmission Fluid in 2003 Oldsmobile Alero


    • This care does not have a dipstick but can easily be checked at home.

    1. 1. Warm the car up to running temperature.
    2. 2. Park it on a level surface.
    3. 3. Leave the car running and set the emergency /parking brake. Also set bricks in front and behind the wheels.
    4. 4. Look on the passenger side of the transmission (underneath the car)
    5. 5. You will see a 10mm bolt a little bit inward from the right axle on the transmission itself.
    6. 6. Have a drain pan ready and pull that bolt.
    7. 7. If fluid comes out it is full.
    8. 8. If no fluid comes out then add ATF III in the fill port on top of the transmission until the fluid just barely seeps out of that hole you removed the bolt from.
    9. 9. This port is on top of the transmission (under the hood) and is usually red or black in color.
    10. 10. The transmission is now full and ready to go.
    • Hope this helps.

    1993 Chevy Silverado Blazer wont shift into 3rd gear


    Check transmission fluid with vehicle up to temp (after driving) and running at idle on level ground. If slightly overfull no problem. Be sure to remove dipstick, wipe clean and reinstall/remove for accurate fluid level check.
