If you mean engine oil level, impossible! If the transmission oil seal or the torque converter were leaking the oil would run out of the bell housing. There is no way it could force its way into the engine, it would have to half fill the bell housing and then get through the rear crankshaft seal.

My husband changed the transmission fluid in my 2006 mercury Monterey he put in 7 guarts of fluid after wards and its not even showing on the stick does this sound right?


He either added the trans fluid to the engine oil or he is checking the wrong dipstick. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL to see that the trans fluid is not in the engine. If the engine oil is full of trans fluid, do NOT START the car and now you need to change the engine oil and also add the trans fluid to the trans. If engine opil is ok, be sure to find correct dip stick for trans fluid. They should be marked accordingly.

How to fix transmission fluid overflow leak


Only way trans oil is leaking out of overflow is to much oil in the trans in first place. Did you add trans oil? check level when enine is operating temperature and engine idling in level ground. check 3 times to make it sure. If found overfull simply drain to proper level. If oil is in operating range than you may have trans problem that need professional care.

How do you add trans fluid?


You probably already know this but to save any confusion just in case you don't, There is a trans fluid dipstick in the engine compartment there are two dipsticks one is oil then (usually on the other side of oil dipstick) trans dipstick. The tube you take that dipstick out of to check the trans fluid level, put a funnel on that and dump it in there. Take extra caution not to over fill. Trans fluid expands as it heats. So if you check it cold there will look like a lot less than there is. Don't add when you have a measurement between low and high.

When i put the car into gear it is stuck in idle and when i rev the rpm's up to 3 then it kicks in and goes. Everytime i stop i have to do this.


the trans is slipping. check the level. with the engine hot, remove the dipstick and wipe clean. it will be located where the engine and trans meet. make sure it's not the oil dipstick. insert the stick and remove. the level should be between the lines or holes. if the fluid level is between those marks, don't add any. the type of fluid is printed on the dipstick. if the level is low add enough to the full mark only. add small quantities. 1/2 qt at a time. then check the level. if the level is good, have the trans fluid and filter changed. if that desn't work, there are mechanical problems.

My car moves forward but when i shifted to backward, car doesn't move. I checked oil level, it's very less. Is replenishing the oil will solve the problem? Are there any reasons other than oil level?


Warm the car engine.Change through all the gears and finish in N.Check the transmission oil level.If it needs trans oil,add the oil into the tube that the trans fluid dipstick is located.The gears wont work if the trans oil level is low.Probably a good idea to find the oil leak.I hope this helps

Auto transmission fluid check C180 Petrol 1997


The car has to be running when checking the trans fluid. It should have reading guages on the bottom of the stick with minimum/max levels. You should take it out and wipe it then reinsert it to read level...It should have fluid at least on the bottom 2 inches of the stick. If noting then your low and need to add. make sure your putting the trans fluid in the correct place and not mixing it with the oil fill...

How to add trans fluid


Checking the transmission fluid in your Volkswagen isn't as simple as it used to be. To check the transmission fluid level requires your vehicle to be on a lift that it can be set level on. With the engine running and transmission warm, a plug has to be removed from the bottom of the transmission pan. This plug is at the base of a short stand-pipe (tube) inside the transmission oil pan. With the plug removed a small amount of oil should spill out (what is trapped in the stand-pipe) and if the fluid is at the correct it will continue to drip. If that is the case the transmission fluid is at the correct level. If all that comes out is what is trapped in the stand-pipe then the fluid level could be low. To add fluid to the transmission requires removal of the fill plug that is located on the front left upper corner by the oil pan. Oil is added at that point until oil starts running out or dripping from the stand-pipe. When replacing the fill plug you also need a replacement lock for the plug from Volkswagen. Many of today's vehicles are equipped with sealed transmissions that require specialized procedures, equipment and parts to check the transmission fluid level. Sorry for the bad or good news. This way just make sure that the person services the transmission to keep the warranty valid.
