The fluid has to be checked with the engine running and the trans needs to be cycled in and oul of gear a few times. The fluild may have to be wiped off the stick many times as the stick is picking up fluid off the side of the dipstick tube as you just put the fluid in that way. Or you could just take a break and come back later to check it after it's had time to go down the tube and it'll check like normal.

Can't find where to add transmission fluid in a 2006 all wheel drive equinox


I am unfamiliar with exact car, however, It is not unusual for transmission oil to be put in via the the transmission dip stick tube - do not confuse it with the engine oil dip stick tube. Do it slowly and make sure you dont over fill or you will eventutally blow your transmission box seals or worse. Let the oil settle before checking levels too because it is easy to misread the dip stick when you have used the dip stick tube to fill oil in.

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..

there is no transmission dip stick on this car. It has a sealed system and you need to take it to the dealer or a repair shop who can work on this car.

WHERE DO I PUT THE TRANSMISION FLUID


you have to locate the tranny dip stick and pull it out- then get a funnel that will fit down the hole- and slowly pour in tranny fliud. check level by putting dip stick back in (allow time for fuild to drip down out of the tube) make sure engine is running and is warmed up while reading fluid level on dipstick. Make sure it is the tranny dip stick and not the oil dipstick. oil is usually yellow and says oil on it- Trans is usually red.

Transmission fluid for a 95 jeep grand cherokee


Generally it will be in your owners manual, and some or stamped on the actual dip stick, any autoparts store will know the specific kind, and it is generally on the fluid containers also. Hope this helps.
