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.

    How to check trasmission fluid no dipstick just a red cap


    4T40E Automatic Transaxle CAUTION
    Removal of the fluid level screw when the transaxle fluid is hot may cause injury. Use care to avoid contact of the transaxle fluid to exhaust pipe. The fluid level screw is intended to be used for diagnosing a transaxle fluid leak or resetting the transaxle fluid level after service that involves a loss of fluid.
    1. The fluid level should be checked when the transaxle is near room temperature or at 104°F (40°C). To acquire this, left the car idle for 3-5 minutes with all of the accessories off. Fig. 5: Location of the fluid level screw and the fill/vent cap needed to check the fluid for the 4T40E automatic transaxle 87951085.gif

    2. Apply the brake, then move the gear shift selector through all gear ranges, pausing three seconds in each range. Shift the lever into P.
    3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
    4. Place a suitable drain pan under the check plug to catch any fluid that may drip out.
    5. Remove the oil check plug. The oil level should be at the bottom of the oil check hole. Because the transaxle operates correctly over a range of fluid levels, fluid may or may not drain out of the screw hole when the screw is removed.
    6. If fluid drains through the screw hole, the transaxle may have been overfilled. When fluid stops draining, then fluid level is correct and the check plug may be installed. If fluid does not drain through the screw hole, the transaxle fluid may have been low. Add fluid at the vent cap location in 1 pint increments until the oil level is at the bottom of the oil check hole.
    7. Install the oil check plug/fluid level screw and tighten to 10 ft. lbs. (14 Nm).
    8. Carefully lower the vehicle.

    I have a 97 Honda Passport,how do u check the transmission fluid?


    Okay, this truck doesnt have a normal dip stick to check the fluid in trany,to check the trany fluid level engine must be warm and parked on level ground, being on level ground is important!, next start engine and move slector through all gears and ending in park, put ebrake on and let engine idle, then remove the check plug from the bottom of trany pan, note theres a drain plug and the level plug heres a diagram to help you locate the right plug, remove the plug with engine idling and the fluid should leak out, the fluid will stop when level is correct if the plug is removed and no fluid leaks out then add some until it drips out level hole.johnjohn2_50.gif

    How/Where do I chek my transmission fluid?


    YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE TRANSMISSION DIP STICK YOU HAVE A LEVEL CHECK PLUG ON BACK SIDE OF OIL PAN YOU NEED A SCREW DRIVER TO PRY OUT LEVEL CHECK PLUG.WITH ENGINE RUNNING FLUID TEMPERATURE 95 TO 113 DEGREES. IF FLUID COMES OUT SMALL DRIPS FLUID LEVEL OKAY.IF FLUID POURS OUT CHECK HOLE YOU HAVE TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION. IF NO FLUID COMES OUT CHECK HOLE.ADD A PINT OF FLUID AT A TIME SO YOU WONT OVERFILL TRANSMISSION. YOU NEED A NEW CHECK PLUG O - RING. IF YOU REUSE THE OLD O-RING YOU WILL HAVE TRANSMISSION FLUID LEAK.DONT REMOVE CHECK LEVEL PLUG UNTIL YOU HAVE PLENTY TRANSMISSION FLUID ON HAND AND A NEW CHECK PLUG O- RING THE DEALERSHIP HAVE IT.

    Where do you find the stick to check the the transmission fluid


    Find the transmission fluid level plug, which is usually on the front of the transmission pan. Remove it using an 11mm flare nut wrench. Be careful not to lie directly beneath the plug when removing it because hot transmission fluid could spill from the opening. Have an empty container or jug on hand to catch any spilling fluid.

    Check the ATF level by observing the spillage. If fluid spills from the transmission fluid level plug opening after removing the plug, the ATF level is too high. Remedy this by waiting until the spillage stops and replugging the opening. If no spillage occurs, the fluid could be too low.
