Cannot find where the transmission fluid would go


is the car auto or manual??
if auto you pour fluid down the tube you check your fluid at. make sure when you check the trans fluid the car is running or you will get the wrong reading.

if car is manual then you have to get a rachet and remove the plug on side of trans and pour the right gear oil into it (note not trans fluid GEAR OIL)

Coolant resevoir question


First, going two months without checking fluids leaves you open to not know when it started to get low. If you are filling the tank with gas, then you should check all the other fluids as well. By the book, you have two marks on the overflow container, COLD & HOT, normally we add coolant to the COLD level becuase of expansion when HOT it could overflow and waste coolant. So the new shop did not do anything bad, and the old shop should have advised you to check fuild levels often. In either case over two months evaporation could have reduced the coolant in the resevoir. It would be a good idea for the next few weeks to check it prior to starting the vehicle each day and not the level when cold, then check it when it has had time to warm up, such as when fueling the vehicle. Constanly having to add coolant is a serious condition that MUST be corrected soon or could lead to more serious engine failure. Hope this helps you.

Bleeding power steering pump


Just did mine...unplug 2-3 of your plug wires so the vehicle doesn't start but turns over. Turn over motor a few seconds then refill power steering resevoir. Repeat until resevoir quits needing fluid...replace wires and drive slowly turning steering wheel from just short of all the way right then repeat to the left. This will get the air out of the lines. Check the fluid after this last step.
