I have a renault clio 52 reg, the engine coolant keeps goin down

i have a clio, had same problem too. its the head gasket. when this breaks or cracks it allows water into parts of the engine it should not, and therefore the water starts to mix with the oil forming this 'light brown gunge' the problem is that when driving with a damaged head gasket you will damage the head of the engine too which is why this is reoccuring. your best bet is to take apart the engine, clean it out, buy a new head gasket and then get the head of your engine skimmed. this could solve the problem depending on how damaged your head is.

Can;t locate auto transmission dipstick on 1985 honda civic

on passenger side of engine compartment you have the transmission, if you look down from above. there should be an inconspicuous round black rubber knob sticking up from a short tube kinda down low in the engine compartment, on the front-side of the transmission. definitely not as obvious as the oil stick

Transmission fluid ~ where do I put it in at?

There should be a dipstick in the rear of the engine compartment (not to be confused with the engine oil dipstick) for the auto transmission. If you pull the dipstick out, you can then use a funnel in the tube and pour the appropriate amount of transmission fluid in.

By the way, I see on other forums that Hondas use a special transmisison fluid. Be sure to check your oweners manual and /or the dealer to find out.

Hi and Welcome to fixya.

First of all you have to dipsticks one for oil and the other for Automatic fluid pull this one out and this is where you top up your Auto fluid, start the engine and let it idle in park position first check your level on the dipstick if low top up but don't go mad with topping up just a little bit at the time you don't want to over fill it,once done this replace dipstick and turn off engine,hope this helps you.
Best regards.
