Do You mean ? you need to measure or check Trans fluid level?
You should do it when hot and engine running. O.K.?

How do I check trans fluid on a 06 750li?I have a dip stick but it doesn't say on dip stick; if I check It with car in neutral or park while engine is running,or do I check it with engine off.


most vehicle auto trans are checked while the engine is running and trans is warmed up to normal operating temp. except hondas which are checked with engine off. pull out the dipstick and the fluid level should be somewhere in between the hash marks. if its low just top off a quarter quart at a time and watch the fluid residue on hash mark on the end of dipstick.

How much damage(if any) will putting in tranny fluid cause without the engine running??


Not sure why you ask the question. You probably check the trans fluid level with the fluid warmed up and engine running. If you have an Owner's Manual, check there for the procedure. If you don't have one, I suggest checking the level as I show above, then add fluid if needed in small amounts with the engine running, check the level after adding every SMALL amount (you do not want to overfill the trans. and stop adding when it's between add and full.

Can't find dip stick for transmition


There is a dipstick, most likely rear drivers side of engine but could be elsewhere. There are only 2 dipsticks in engine compartment, one is oil and the other is trans fluid. They should be marked. You add the fluid down the dipstick tube. Engine needs to be running in park and trans needs to be at operating temp to get accurate measurement on fluid. Hope this helps.

Transmission fluid goes low when driving for awhile then goes back to normal when parked for awhile


The transmission fluid level is to be checked with the ENGINE RUNNING, ond trans in park or neutral. there is fluid in the torque converter that will raise the fluid level when the engine is off..this is normal. So, I suspect that you may be low on fluid. and the indication after being parked for a while is not valid. Engine MUST be running, and ideally the trans fluid warmed up, but not critical.

Transsmition takes a long time to shift geers.


first thing to check is the fluid level.Warm up the engine,run through all the gears a few times and finish in neutral.With the engine still running check the trans fluid level with the trans dipstick.If it is low,this will be the problem.If needed,you add fluid through the trans dipstick tube.Hope this helps

Need to change the fluid on an 02 santa fe 2wd w/ 2.7


Use ONLY Hyundai SPIII fluid - no other substitute is available. Several ways to do this - drain & refill several times: run engine to operating temp and cycle the trans through D & R. drain fluid again, refill and run engine again and cycle D & R, drain and refill again. Do not over fill - check when fluid is hot, the adjust level.
The other way is a Trans-Flush machine which performs a 'fluid exchange' - pulls old fluid out while replacing it with fresh fluid while the engine is running at idle in Neutral.

Where do you put in transmission fluid


on that car you most likely need to get under the car and remove a plug from the trans itself to fill it. Remember to have the engine running when you fill and check the level.

Can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus


You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.

Transmission-overdrive not working properly


check the transmission fluid first .
============
overdrive allows the engine to run at lower RPM's , which increases the fuel
economy and also the transmission runs cooler

Trans fluid in the oil


unless someone put trans fluid in your engine oil
the only place that it even has a chance is in the radiator
you will see the trans lines running in and out of the rad.
