This depends on what trany is in that truck, one has a dip stick tube with a normal dip stick to check the level and then the other trany has no dipstick theres a plug on the side of the trany where the tube would go , the plug need to be removed and to add fluid you would need a pump and small hose to pump it in, also these tranys take a certain type of fluid so check with your local dealer , the wrong fluid will damage the trany, the plug you remove will have a small stick on it to measure the level, when checking the level you dont put plug all the way in only the stick part goes in. here are a few diagram to show you the plug location and the stick to check level. hope this helps, be careful the plug is near exhaust and truck must be at operating temp and truck on level ground to check the level. good luck, hope this helps.how do I check the - johnjohn2_2.pngjohnjohn2_4.png

The transmission is considered a "fill for life" servicable by dealer only, in other words there is no dipstick. The superduty is the only style with a dipstick. no dipstick in the explorer either.

    Every trans has a way to check fluid levels

    ALL Transmissions get fluid changed
    EVERY 30,000 miles (unless your a fool
    and have deep pockets)

There should be a dip stick at the rear of the engine on the passenger side.

SOURCE: transmission dip stick

You have to buy one, can possibly get from wrecking yard but first make sure it is the same transmission by calling dealership and asking what years have the same trani.......must be the same because otherwise the length could be different and you would not get correct reading. But you really need one.

SOURCE: Where is transmission fluid located.

Transmission fluid is located inside the transmission fluid pan. It is checked and added through the fill tube. The dipstick is located under the hood. You have two dipsticks, one for engine oil and one for transmission fluid. On some models, the dipstick for the transmission fluid may be located under the engine cover in the cab of the van between the driver's and front passenger's seats. If you simply cannot find two dipsticks under the hood, it's under the engine cowl.

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 ,

Checking transmission fluid


Cars these days have colored dip sticks. One is yellow and one is red. The red one would be your transmission dipstick. Check the transmission with the car running. If you are low. Get a funnel and put it where the dip stick came from and put some transmission fluid in it and put the dip stick back in the hole.

Need to know how to add the transmission fluid


Manual transmission is easy. There is a fill plug on the left axle flange and a drain plug on the bottom (special bit required).

The automatic must be filled while running so it really isn't a DIY.

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,.

How can i put transmission fluid into my car,how much do i put in


Check the Level of the transmission fluid by pulling the Transmission dip stick. The colour of the dip stick is most likely red in colour and you need to check it with the car's engine running and hot. Pull the dip stick out clean it off and check it again. always check the second reading. 
To fill the transmission, you need to fill it through the Transmission dip stick tube. Yes your going to need a thin funnel and good luck. Do not over fill the transmission. over filling will cause damage to the transmission. 
Best thing is, if you have not done a transmission oil and filter change. Have it done at a Transmission shop and you'll know that the transmission level is fine and have them show you have to check and fill the Transmission. As time goes by and mileage get's high, the fluid will get contaminated and the filter plugged up which would in turn cause a transmission failure.
Good luck and hope this helps. Oh and the type of transmission fluid should be in your manuel or stamped on the dip stick.

I can't locate the transmission fluid dip stick for 2003 Grandam


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