There probably isn't one, common since the early century, sealed at the factory, there is a fill and level plug, for servicing

Transmission is shifting at a high rpm is there a synchronizer or something that may need repairing


You might be low on transmission fluid. A transmissions fluid acts like a lubricant and as a hydrualic fluid. When the fluid is low sometimes the vehicle needs to spin at a faster rpm to initiate the shift. Check both the level and color of the fluid. It should be red. It's alright if its a little dirty, as long as you can still tell your looking at a red liquid you should be alright. Transmission fluid is properly check with the car at idle in park or neutral while on a level surface. The dipstick location varies from car to car but looks similar to the oil dipstick.

My 2001 Subaru Outback doesn't show a transmission dipstick. The manual has a diagram but there's no dipstick there. It just started kicking between gears, 1. Where's the dipstick? 2. How many miles can I...


It just all depends on the fluid level. It probably needs changed around 50,000-60,000 miles. Sometimes, the dipstick is under the car. It is not an actual dipstick. It is much smaller but it is located on the side of the transmission. I would check down there to see if it is on the side.

How do you check transmission fluid


Make sure the engine has been at operating tempurature for at least 5 minutes. Open the hood and locate the TRANSMISSION dipstick, this one is different from the ENGINE OIL dipstick. It is usually bigger and located closer to the firewall in the engine compartment, if you have any doubts about finding it, look in your owners manual, it should tell you where it is. When you pull the correct dipstick you can tell becuase the fluid is RED and not BLACK or BROWN like engine oil. The car should be on a level surface and the engine should be idling in PARK to check the fluid correctly. Pull the dipstick, wipe it with a clean cloth and then re-insert it and pull it out again. There should be clear markings on the end of the dipstick to show where the level is. Again, check in your owners manual to see where normal levels are marked. If you don't have an owners manual, just look to see if the level is at least between two marks; an uppper and a lower. If no fluid shows on the stick, you are running low on fluid and could damage the transmission, have it filled immediately.
Hope this helps.

How do you check the transmission fluid in a 1993 toyota celica automatic, and what type transmission fluid does it use?


There should be a dipstick for it between the engine and the firewall labeled transmission.If there isn't one,a shop has to check it but I don't believe that method started until well after your year model.Start the car and let it warm up for 5 minutes on a flat,level surface.With the engine running,pull out the dipstick and wipe off with a paper towel will do.Reinsert the stick and check the level according to the marking,same as an oil level marking.Do it a couple of more times to ensure accuracy.If you do need fluid,you need to simply read the back of the transmission fluid container.Every manufacturer makes their own so it is not universal.Toyota for yours obviously.When adding fluid,you can turn off the car but you will need to add little by little,doing 3 or 4 readings,being careful not to overfill.Somewhere in the mid to upper range of the marking is best.Overfilling can cause the gaskets to leak,but not right away.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

Where do I check the transmission fluid


Hi, follow the detailed instruction below on how to check the Transmission fluid on your Chevy Cavalier 2001.
  1. Turn the Cavalier on and put it in neutral. Make sure your hand brake is engaged to keep the car from moving while you work on it. Open your car's hood so that you have access to the engine.
  2. Look for your Cavalier's transmission dipstick. It should stick out from the body of the engine, and be clearly labelled as "transmission fluid." Refer to your Cavalier's owner's manual for a diagram of engine parts if you have trouble locating the dipstick.
  3. Pull the dipstick out and clean it off with a rag. Reinsert the dipstick and pull it out again. Check the end of the dipstick for your reading; the transmission level will be measured on the dipstick by labels like "low," "medium" and "high." If your dipstick has no fluid on it, it means that your Cavalier is almost out of transmission fluid and needs more. A low reading also indicates a need to add more fluid. If the fluid is low, add a bottle of transmission fluid, available for purchase at auto supply shops. Add fluid and repeat this process until your dipstick shows a reading of "high" or "full."

How do i add transmission fluid into a 1993 Ford Ranger?


Automatic Transmission?

The fluid level needs to be checked with the engine running, the vehicle on a level surface, and the transmission in park. Remove the Transmission dipstick, wipe clean, and reinsert. Immediately pull it out again and check the fluid level. If it is not where it should be fluid can be added through the dipstick tube. A half a quart can make a big difference in fluid level so start small.

It will take a while for the new fluid to clear out of the tube to get an accurate reading after you add the new fluid.

2002 toyota sienna change transmission fluid and


The drain plug is on the bottom of the transmission. Its torqued to 49 nM.
1. Remove tranny oil pan drain plug
2. Drain old fluid (roughly 2-4 quarts)
3. Reinstall drain plug.
4. Measure amount drained in a 99 cent orange juice pitcher from Walmart
5. Pour back the same amount drained using Toyota Type T-IV fluid (available in 1 quart bottles from a Toyota dealer.
6. Start engine and shift slowly through all the gears ending in Park.
7. Check fluid level on the dipstick. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level to a point inbetween the COLD and HOT marks on the dipstick.
8. Go for a 20 minute drive and recheck fluid level. Add fluid, if necessary, to bring the level up to,
but not beyond, the upper half of the HOT range on the dipstick.

As in 1973, NO FLUSHING is needed and NO FILTER REPLACEMENT is needed, NO PAN REMOVAL is needed. As, as in 1973 todays Toyotas have a metal mesh filter screen that doesn't ever get clogged except in rare cases of transmission operational abuse, including failure to ever change the fluid for 150,000 miles or more.

How do i add transmission fluid to my 1996 camry?


If you have a dipstick under your hood for the tranny fluid, then fill it in there slowly... if not, you'll need to fill it through the filler plug that will be on the side of the transmission just above the halfway point

Transmission Fluid


some manufactures have chosen not to put dipsticks on their vehicles, being if it is not leaking the level will not go down. thus if you don't see a leak there is no reason to check the fluid level. mike
