There won't be a dipstick. You have to pull out the plug on the side of the transmission while the car is level and the transmission is at normal operating temperature. This is pretty tough for the average guy to do in his garage.
My daughter has a '97. We just take it to a shop and get the fluid replaced every 50k miles and so long as it does not leak, we don't worry about the level between changes.

Could be the radiator is full of bugs or normal road filth that accumulates. How is the coolant level in the radiator. Fill it if low. Were you stalled in traffic? Were you at high altitude, like in the rocky mountains or appalachian mountains. Check radiator cap. They are relatively in-expensive considering the job they do. The cap pressurizes the fluid in the radiator and prevents it from boiling out at higher altitudes or higher temperatures.

Please could yu tell me where the transmission inspection plate is located on a BMW 318i SE Automatic 1998


What's a transmission inspection plate, and what are you inspecting.


Ok, I'll guess you want to know how to check the transmission fluid? How do I know this.....because I can mind read. I also know this because there's no dipstick of any kind to check the fluid level. So, what else is there you want to check on the transmission. color?--it's silver.

How do i check the fluid levels in a vw polo 1998 automatic gearbox from a motor mechanic thats been out the game for a while


If you have an 01M 4spd automatic transmission which uses VAG part # G 052 162 A2 ATF only. I'll suggest buy the seal and filter kit from VW and uses 3.2qt when you replace the fluid. Topping off require a different procedure. A VAG 1552 Scan tool is required when correcting the ATF level measured by reading temperature of the fluid.

Jeep wont go drive forward or reverse


Either the clutch or torque converter, most likely the torque converter, also check the gearbox fluid level and slave cylinder.

My 325i 1992 automatic transmission seems to be slipping and i want to know how to check the fluid level


The 3 series does not have a dipstick in the engine compartment. It is similar to a manual transmission and should have filler/level plug on the side of the gearbox casing.
