There isnt a stick for this. its a complicated mess to check. best done by a shop. it has to be running. there is suppose to be a high plug/ low plug. and some say just one plug you pull. doing a Google search all the forums say the same thing. its best to let a shop check it, sorry.

My Isuzu Rodeo won't shift into any gear besides park or neutral.

if the car is a auto matic start the car in park with the parking break on. under the hood you will see to dip sticks. one should be black "oil" the other yellow Transmission stick. with the car running pull the dip stick out wip off any oil on the stick. reinstall all the way pull it out again, you should have either 2 dots aproxmaintley 1" spread the top dot is where the trans mission fluied needs to be. if it is barley on the stick go to your local parts store ask what type of transmission it uses and buy a couple of quarts probley about 12.00 also get a tran. funnel to add the fluied. put a little at a time and check the stick untial it is on the top mark about2.5" from bottom of the stick. also if the fluied is not a redish color, have it changed. good luck

Where is transmission stick located on a 1998 Chevy Malibu automatic

The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Although there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.

How much transmission fluid does a 2002 chevy malibu hold, how do i measure it and is there a warning indicator if it is low

if your looking for a dip stick, there isn't one , here's what you do for a 2001, 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. The transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out of that hole. I believe its the same through 2005

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 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.

My daughters 2001 chevy malibu won't go past 50 mph. The transmission starts to slip when it goes into the passing gear. Can anything be done? Could it be as simple as a vacuum hose? Or is it toast?

Pull the transmission dip stick out and look at the fluid. If it is NOT pink and has a burnt odor the transmission probably has worn out clutches and need rebuilding or replacement.

I found the transmission fill cap on my friend's 1998 Chevy Malibu, but where is the dip stick to check the fluid level located?

There is no dip stick. There is a 7/16 check plug just under the passenger side axle.The transmission must be warm and the engine idling in park to check. This tough to do without a lift.Fluid will drip out of hole when full.

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.

2001 malibu transmission slipping

lvd, Start the car, leave the shifter in park position.
Remove the transmission dip stick, wipe it clean, reinsert the dip stick and verify it is between the add and full mark.
Do not go over the full mark as that will create a slip condition caused by foaming oil.
Let me know.
