There really isn't a place to check the fluid level. The only thing you can do is top off the fluid level. In the first picture shows the location of a tube coming up from the transmission. It also shows the plug on it which needs to be replaced if removing it with a new one. The second picture shows the location of the "check plug" on the transmission. The way to top off your fluid level is to remove the check plug and add transmission fluid in that tube until fluid starts to run out of the check plug. That's how you do it on your vehicle. Hope this helps you....

How do i check fluid for convertable top


"How do I get the air out of my hydraulic system"?
  • Remove the reservoir plug on the motor pump. Leave the plug out and do not put back until you have finished.
  • Fill the reservoir 3/4 full with fluid (to the bottom of filler plug hole). Put a rag under the hole to catch overflow that will occur as system fills.
  • Run the pump for 15-20 seconds. Stop. Check your fluid level and refill to bottom of filler hole. Continue running the motor in the same direction for an additional 15-20 seconds. When the top gets to the end of cycle, check your fluid level, fill to bottom of filler hole, and run the motor in the opposite direction.
  • You are literally running the top all the way up and down sereral times. Checking the fluid level as you go and fill as required, leaving reservoir 25% empty.
  • When you are no longer able to add fluid, put the top in the down position. Check the fluid level one last time, should be to bottom of filler hole. Put the plug into reservoir.

    Transmission stuck in higher gears on highway/fluid fill level


    The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Instead there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.

    Note: the vehicle must be kept level when checking the transmission fluid level.

    Place an oil container under the check plug and remove it. Observe the fluid as it drips into the pan, indicating correct fluid level. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the check hole. Double check to make sure the car is level. If no fluid drips from the check hole, some fluid should be added via the red cap. But add only a little at a time until the fluid is at the bottom of the check hole.

BEFORE OPENING THE HYDRALIC PUMP FLUID CHECK PLUG BECAUSE FLUID WILL SPRAY EVERY WHERE..IF HYDRALIC PUMP CHECK OUT OKAY AND YOU DO NOT HEAR NO HYDRALIC PUMP NOISE.POWER IS GOING TO HYDRALIC PUMP.EITHER HYDRALIC PUMP MOTOR FAULTY OR FAULTY HYDRALIC PUMP RELAY BEST TO LET MERCEDES BENZ DEALERSHIP CHECK IT OUT...

    How do you top up transmission fluid?


    I never heard top up but have heard of top off. That just means to fill to the level. Checking your transmission fluid is just like checking your oil. The cap usually will even say transmission fluid. Just pull the dipstick out, wipe it clean then put back in. Pull back out again and on the dipstick there will be markings for the level of fluid. Some say "add" at the bottom of the dipstick. Some say "max" and "min" for the levels. Check to see where its at on the dipstick and add some if it is low.

    Transmission fluid leak ,most on top of tranny


    This is how to service your transmission. Ensure to follow these steps to check the existing level to see in fact how much fluid your losing and if your at risk of a blown tranny with little to no fluid
  • Drive the car for several miles or until the engine has reached its normal temperature, as indicated by the temperature gauge. Position the vehicle on a flat surface, shift the transmission to the "Park" position and apply the parking brake.Raise the hood and allow the vehicle to idle.

  • Withdraw the transmission's dipstick. The dipstick features a T-shaped handle with the words "Trans. Fluid" stamped into the top of the handle.Wipe the dipstick clean of any transmission fluid with a clean shop rag. As the vehicle is driven, transmission fluid may splash onto the dipstick, resulting in a false fluid level reading.Insert the dipstick into its tube until the handle rests securely against the top of the tube, then withdraw the dipstick and note the fluid level. The fluid level should be at or just below the "Warm Full" mark stamped into the dipstick. If the level is low, fluid must be added.Add Mercon V transmission fluid in small increments to avoid overfilling the transmission. Insert a funnel into the top of the dipstick tube, then pour the transmission fluid into the funnel, periodically checking the fluid level on the dipstick.

    Service 4 wheel drive switch


    check the transfer case fluid level and fill it up your fluid for the tcase is transmission fluid, IIRC its ATF +3, to add fluid is pretty simple. On the rear of the case there are two fairly good sized bolts, the top is where you check your fluid level and add fluid, the bottom is to drain the case. Remove the top bolt fill until level with the bottom of the hole. in other words fill it until it runs out the hole and replace the bolt. hope this helps

    2001 Passport with automatic has no dipstick for transmission, how do I check level and where do I add fluid


    If you are looking to check the fluid levels and add transmission fluid you will need to first purchase a fluid pump at your local car repair store. Most run between $10 and 25$. For best results, run your car for a few minutes to bring the fluids to operating temperatures before attempting to add fluid. Be careful of hot surfaces and liquids.
    It is difficult to check the level of fluid in the 2001 Honda passport because it lacks a dipstick. Instead, you will have to get underneath the car and check it at the Automatic Transmission fluid pan. This is located approximately below the center of the rear passengers seat on the underside of the car.
    To check the fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Use your finger or other object to see if the fluid level is at the same level as the drain plug. This can be difficult to do therefore it may be easier to add fluid until it is full to verify that you are at the correct levels.
    To add fluid, remove the top most bolt on the automatic transmission fluid pan (most use a 3/4 inch socket). Using the fluid pump, slowly add transmission fluid until it starts to drip out. Replace the bolt. Take care not to over tighten the bolt.

    If you want to be thorough, start your car and while your foot is on the brake, run your transmission through the gears slowly. Turn off your car. Remove the fill bolt and check the fluid level again. If it is not full see the previous steps. If your levels are OK, replace the bolt and you are good to go.

    Brake light on dash stays on but sometimes goes off when cornering. Whats wrong


    Check your brake fluid level. If the level is low, it will cause this. Also- if the level is significantly low, have your brakes checked, or check them yourself. When brake pads or shoes wear down, the level of fluid in the reservoir will drop accordingly with it.
