This year of Pontiac uses a sealed transmission, so there is no transmission dipstick, why GM choose to do this is beyond me. To check the fluid level you will find a fill pug under the car on the axle shaft output housing, remove the plug just above the transmission pan, with a hot transmission (at least 185F) you should be able to touch the fluid with your pinky.

Where do I check my transmission fluid on my 2005 Hyundai accent 5 speed 4 cyn


There will either be a dip stick marked transmission fluid on the opposite side of the oil dip stick or you will have to do it at the transmission itself. There will be a small dip stick or just simply a bolt halfway up. when the fluid comes out it is full.

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.


Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

Car starts and when you give it gas it wont go any where and the rpm hand goes up and still dont move


This sounds like transmission problems, some of these models do not have a transmission dip stick to check the transmission fluid level.
The first step is to see if this car has a dip stick to check the transmission fluid level. Low fluid will cause this problem also or if there is a leak and fluid leaks low after time until it gets to low and transmission wont move.
if this model does not have a dip stick for the transmission then you will need to take it to a tranny or repair shop and have them check it.

If you have a dip stick and the fluid is full then you may have internal transmission problems and again will need a shop to check it out. Make sure if the fluid is low and you are adding you will need to make sure you are using the correct fluid or damage will occur , the type is written on the stick, look closely and you will see the writing ,

Could you tell me where to put the transmission fluid in a 1988 honda accord dx. I can't seem too find it.


If there is a dip stick to show you the level of the fluid in the transmission, the transmission fluid is added through the dip stick tube. With the dip stick out, place a funnel in the tube opening and pour the fluid into the funnel.

How to refill oil in transmission for Dodge caravan 1995 (automatic transmission)?


You refill the transmission through the dip stick tube. Make sure you don't over fill the transmission though, that's just as bad as having low transmission fluid levels.

How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.


if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.

Your transmission is sealed and has no dip stick, checking the fluid level properly involves using a factory scan tool.
