There is no dip stick on some of these models, to check the transmission fliud level you will need to check from bottom of the car and to add there is a red cap on the top of the transmission.

there is a small cap bolt on the passenger side of the ****** located in the area of the axle going into transmission, the car needs to be at operating temp and lifted level with engine running remove the plug and fluid should drip out, if not add fluid with plug out a pint at a time until fluid starts to drip out . note add a pint and shift in all gears and back to park and check for dripping fluid if dripping install cap. it is full.when adding ,after each pint run shiffter into all gears first. good day

2005 lincoln navigator transmission slipping. Changed the filter and oil got better for a little while now it gets worse intermittently.

Look at the fluid and smell it. If it is not pink and has a burned or bad odor the clutches are burned up. In any event you will need to have a transmission specialist check the transmission. Please do some research for your area. Talk to friends etc. and do your best to find an honest repair center. Transmission repair centers have a huge dissatisfaction record across the USA. Try to find one that has a good record. Check the BBB in your area.

My 2003 kia transmission will not shift into next gear at 45mph do u know what it is?

The transmission fluid is the first place to check. The car must be running in park and be slightly warmed up to get an accurate reading. The transmission dipstick is near the big black box near the drivers steering wheel area under the hood. It has a black plastic "stopper" at the top and you pull it straight up while the car is running, wipe the dipstick end off with a paper towel to dry it and then place it back in the tube and pull it out and inspect it. The reddish fluid should be near the "top" little dot or hole in the dipstick a few inches from the bottom of the dipstick where it says 65 degrees. If there's nothing on the stick, you need to add fluid, one pint at time (use for Dexron III automatic transmission fluid) and repeat until the fluid is to the 65 degrees mark. Then the transmission should shift properly. If the fluid is already at the 65 degrees mark before you add anything, you should pay the dealership to diagnose the issue. If the fluid was LOW, you may want to add transmission leak sealer, cross your fingers and save some money for your next transmission (dealership will not fix leaks from transmission seals including plugs in the transmission but they will be happy to sell you a new transmission)

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2004. How do you do it?

tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)

If it is a 5 speed manual, then you add Transmission oil under the car on the upper side of the transmission. Under the hood on fire wall side there is the speedometer cable. You must remove lock down bolt with # 10 socket and lift straight up. That is where you add/check your Transmission fluid on a 5 speed. Clean the area first and it's fairly simple. 
The tube where the dipstick for the Automatic transmission is where you add the Transmission fluid. You will probably need one of those funnels with the really long neck, so that you can get the fluid into the tube without pouring it all over the place. Be careful that you don't overfill the transmission!

Good luck and hope this helps.

Can't find where to put automatic transmission fluid

there are two areas where you can add fluid from the front of the vehicle, doesnt matter what kind of car it is, one is for checking the oil the other is for the transmission fluid, but before you add transmission fluid i recommend your flush out the old transmission fluid first so all the grimey old fluid is out and at the same time can notice if any bits of metal are floating around

Where do I check the transmission fluid on a 1997 Hyundai excel

Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed. Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.

1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. 2. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area around the dipstick. 3. With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking brake applied, start the engine. 4. The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 5. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the "N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is accurate. 6. Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range.

I found out what was wrong by calling local transmission places and they told me the transmission needs replacing or rebuilt. Thank You for your time.
