Actually your car has no transmission dipstick...

There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level.

You have to fill the oil from the fill cap until it runs out of the bolt hole. Don't ask me why GM did this on a lot of their cars...

Location of transmisson dipstick on a 02 chevy malibu


GM realized that transmissions lasted longer and needed less fluid changes when the transmission was sealed so they stopped putting transmission dipsticks in at some point.

How does one check transmission oil in 2005 chevy malibu maxx


You don't yourself. The lube change shop or garage can do this (requires special tools or removal of the pan). for a 2005 you're likely in need of a flush. some models can have a dipstick installed, but its not necessary. Unless you have a serious leak of fluid or shifting issues, it's rare to lose fluid. If you are having issues, then start with a flush and inspection BY A REPUTABLE GARAGE. do not use a dealer or transmission shop, they will always find ways to seprate you from your $$$

How to check transmission fluid on a 2000 chevy malibu


Make sure the car is in park with the engine running and pull out the transmission filler tube dipstick and wipe it off. Put it back in the same place you took it out of. Then pull it out again then look at the level position of the oil at the bottoim of the dipstick. 1 quart is equivelent to about 1/2 in

I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu. and I cant find the transmission dip stick. been told have to check with special tool from underneath. this seems stupid to me there has to be a dipstick from under the hood to...


There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level. Transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out the bolt hole. Typical GM engineering. Just check the owners manual. It should tell you something about this.

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.

I can't find the transmission fluid dipstick on my car.....


there is no dipstick, this is a sealed transmission, GM did this to stop owners from overfilling the trans, the fluid level must be checked by the dealer with a scan tool.
