Question about Bentley Continental

1958 Bentley S-1 automatic transmission

Been drilling for hours to at least see a schematic or even a picture for the transmission. Mine seems to slip, have fluid lightly on ground and can't even find a filler/dipstick to check it! Please help!

SOURCE: check engine light on

If you disconnect your battery for 15 minutes it should clear a dummy light. However if it does not it you may have a bad sensor.

SOURCE: 1997 chevy cavalier Z24 2.4l autotrans. fluid level

Hi losflip,
There is a plug located where the right side axle shaft enters the transmission it is above the pan. To check the fluid level of the transmission the engine must be at operating temp and the vehicle must be level. The must be running and the transmission in park, the plug is then removed and if transmission fluid starts dripping/leaking out it is full. If not transmission fluid should be added till fluid starts leaking from the plug hole, then just reinsert the plug and tighten. Generally this is done with the vehicle on a lift in order to access the plug, you might be able to do this if you have enough room to access the plug remember the vehicle must be level.

SOURCE: need to check transmission fluid

I'm not sure about your specific car but most of the time when you can't find a dipstick for your transmission it is because there isn't one.  In these cases you have to find your transmission fluid pan and there will be two plugs in it.  On will sit higher up than the other.  The higher one is the fill plug and the lower one is the drain plug.  To check/fill the oil you take the fill plug out.  You know that it is full when there is a small amount of fluid dribbling out of that hole.  If there isn't anything coming out, you need to add some until there is.  It's kinda hard to add but they make special pumps/funnel type things that you can screw on the end of a bottle of fluid and you can buy those for a few dollars at your auto parts store.  Let me know if you have other questions.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa!

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Malibu - auto trans - no dipstick

You have what is called a closed cased transmission. You have to crawl underneathe to get to the tranny and remove the upper bolt close to the side of the case (more towards the bottom of the transmission). When you fill it, you fill it till it starts to drip out of that hole.

Looking for a picture for you.

How do I check transmission flued in a 2006 Bentley flying spur

With a Bentley you would take it to the Bentley dealership :>)

Lift the hood and look for the dipstick. There is one for the engine and one for transmission which normally has a clip to hold it down.

For the reason I stated first, there are no videos except for Continental.

Where do I put transmission fluid in 1958 Rolls Royce?

Mine is a little newer, but the dipstick tube is the usual place to refill, use a funnel, pour in only a few ounces at a time, then check the level with the engine running. Do not over fill it. Hope this helps.

Bentley continental Rough idle

any air leak will cause problems as for the ruff idling i would say it was fuel starvation as it is common. that would be down to the fuel regulator valve. this would also make other codes pop up.(exhaust gas temp sensor). Bentleys are a service nightmare false cods will pop up with the original fault. put engine into limp mode. also if it is an automatic the breather hose for the automatic needs to be cleaned every now and then as this can cause low speed and high fuel, cam belt need to be check on a regular basis and changed every 2 years min. cam and crank sensors on some models have been know to fail when engine is warm. if the codes were rest and fine for a few days then it is not a serious problem it sould like a lose wire on a sensor. these show up more in wet and damp weather. as you say you can afford to fix this problem I would have a rolling road test done this is the car is put on the computer and the car is driven on the rolling road. this is a better way of finding faults. also you get a good read out of what the engine is doing and not doing. also would have some one check the dampener for the throttle check as these can move and also cause low idle.

How can i check the transmission fluid in a 2006 pontiac solstice with an automatic transmission? I called the dealership and they want me to bring it in for them to do....1hr shop time at $105 an hour...

You should change automatic trans fluid every 30,000 miles and never go over
3 years,even if the milage is less
Also do the power steeering at the same time
The $105 is about right,but why would you be at a dealer for ANYTHING?
