The same place you drained it.There is a small torx screw in the center of the large plug that is used for filling the transmission.You will need to pump fluid into the small hole.To check the fluid the engine must be idling in park and the transmission should be 100 degrees (warm to touch)but not hot.Fluid should stream slightly from the small hole when full with trans warm and engine idling.Vehicle must be level.Good Luck!

Accidentally drained transmission fluid instead of oil. Bought 2008 Toyota Tacoma used and manual does not provide info on where transmission fluid is put in.


Normally the transmission fluid off pumped from the side of the engine block. You have to look from the under side of the vehicle. Good luck....

I have a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe and I accidently put motor oil in the A/T oil spot. What should I do?


Don't run the engine at all. If it was started, the transmission pump will have pumped the motor oil all through the transmission-go have it professionally flushed. If the engine was not started, drop the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and get a new transmission filter. Put it back together and run the engine until the transmission fluid gets hot. Then change the fluid and filter again. After this, monitor the transmission fluid dipstick. If any traces of more motor oil in the pink fluid, do the drain and change filter a third time. (buy a case of transmission fluid-each drain and change will take about 6 quarts.)

I have a 2005 toyota corolla and need oil change


If auto you refill through the auto dipstick, If manual you will find a plug approx 1/3 - 1/2 way up the side of the g/box. The engine oil drain plug will be infront of the gear box (should be a 14 mm bolt) located on the engine sump.

Locatte transmission drain plug 2002 xls EXPLORER


Most of the explorers don't have a drain plug, you have to remove the oil pan to drain the fluid, messy and a pain but for some stupid reason they decided not to put a drain plug in them.

Drained transmissoin fluid instead of motor oil on my Ford Explorer XLT, how do i refill transmission fluid?


Insert drain plug, tighten back up. Open hood, look for the transmission dipstick (BE SURE NOT TO USE THE OIL DIPSTICK) refer to your manual or dealer as to it's location. Obtain the proper transmission fluid for your vehicle, get a small funnel that will fit in the dipstick tub (remove the dipstick) and pour in an amount less than specified by your owners manual. Turn on engine, let run for a minute or two then take reading. If your level is low then add small amounts until the desired level is reached. DO NOT OVERFILL. If you're uncomfortable with this procedure, it's best to get assistance.

Can i drain the transmission fluid on a 05 suzuki forenza my self?


yes. HOWEVER, whe you refill it. make sure that you put in the correct type of oil. refer to your owner manual prior to putting in any old automatice trranny fluid as some tranny's require a sopecial type of oil, put in the wrong one and you fry your transmission. If its a standard, put in the correct weight of gear oil. Not trying to scare you, but i want to make sure that your REFER TO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL for the correct type of oil to put in after you drain it.

good luck.

Transmission oil


Yes the transmission fluid goes in the location of the dipstick. As for the yellow "oil", if you just recently got the car maybe the previous owner put engine oil in the tranny fluid receptor instead of the engine...it's been known to happen. As far as I know, tranny fluid should be red, even if water gets into it, it's still a pinkish color. Maybe better to drain it and replace it. Good luck.
