SOURCE: Transmission fluid dipstick on 2001 Corvette?

Hi,

No there is no tube/dipstick under the hood as the tranmission is in the rear of the car. You need to lift it up level and then check the fluid.

I own a 01 vette as well. Change the fluid 50k the first time and check/replace every 30k after that. Just a standard filter fluid change is fine. No need to flush.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

I am not sure which engine you have on your 202 Grand Prix, but if you have the most common 3800 V6 this is where it should be. Look at the back of the engine compartment just to the left of the plastic master cylinder resevoir.
Here is a picture you can look at...

Automatic transmission it don't go


Check the transmission for fluid. Start the car, remove the trans dipstick and then check it again and wipe it on a white paper towel and check the color. It should be pinkish red and not runny. if it is not, have the tranny flushed and refilled. If that looks okay, check for a loose vacuum hose attached to the transmission from underneath.

Can't find my transmission fluid dip stick under


If you can't find one than there is likely not one. Look under the vehicle at the transmission pan. If you see a large nut with a smaller screw in the middle you just found the transmission dipstick. With the engine running and the transmission up to operating temp remove the center screw. If no fluid drips out the transmission than you will need to add some. Lisle tool makes a tool that inserts into the opening all you will need is a hose and a pump. If fluid comes out the hole than the fluid is full and none needs to be added. Do not take out the center screw with the engine off. This will be counter productive!

Where will i find the transmission oil and what type to add


Transmission fluid, readily available at any parts store or Walmart, is found in the transmission pan. Look in your owner's manual's index (which should be in the glove box) to find the dipstick location. Frequently, when you pull the dipstick to check fluid level, the type of fluid to use will be etched on the dipstick at the fill line. It should also be printed in the owners manual under Recommended fluids or fliud capacity. See index under transmission or fluids. What vehicle do you have?

e: subaru legacy transmission dipstick Transmission dip stick is behind the engine in front of driver side firewall. Move a few hoses out of the way, look down and you'll see it has a yellow top.
Other side (passenger) lower down yet, again move a few hoses aside, yellow top handle, you'll find the shorter differential dip stick.
In either case, if your gaze reaches the ground, you've gone too far.

    How do you properly check the transmission fluid?


    To check your automatic transmission fluid, look for a dipstick handle sticking out of your transmission. This is located toward the rear of an in-line engine on vehicles with rear-wheel drive as shown here:

    emissionwiz_76.jpg If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, the transmission fluid dipstick is sticking out of the transaxle, as shown here.


    emissionwiz_77.jpg To check your automatic transmission fluid, follow these steps:
    1. Pull out the dipstick.

      With the gearshift in Neutral or Park and the parking brake on, let your engine run. Be sure the engine is warm when you pull out the dipstick. (Don't turn off the engine.)

    2. Check the fluid.

      Dip the tip of your index finger into the fluid on the dipstick and rub the fluid between your finger and the tip of your thumb. The transmission fluid on the dipstick should be pinkish and almost clear. If it looks or smells burnt or has particles in it, have a mechanic drain and change the fluid.

    3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean, lint-free rag; then reinsert it and pull it out again.

      If the transmission fluid is clear but doesn't reach the "Full" line on the dipstick, use a funnel to pour just enough transmission fluid down the dipstick tube to reach the line. Don't overfill!

    While driving the car jerks and the rpms jumps from 2 to 3 and then back to 2. it seems like the trans. is slipping


    hi,
    if its an automatic transmission, it may need fluid. look closely under the hood for the transmission fluid dipstick, it may be somewhat hidden. check the owners manual for location. leave the engine running and put the car in park, sert the parking brake, take the dipstick out, wipe it off and replace. remove it a second time for your reading, it should right between the two marks, look closely on both sides of the dipstick the exact directions for the car may be written on it. if it doesent show any fluid on the dipstick, you can safely add 1 quart of automatic transmission fluid to the hole where the dipstick came out of using a funnel, check level again and add slowly now untill its right in between the marks. put a piece of cardboard under the car at night to see if its leaking and where. there are small transmission cooler lines that sometimes become loose that go from the transmission to the side of the radiator,study tighten those hose clamps down on the tubes. sometimes the ends of the flexible tubes become worn out, you can replace or cut off the bad areas of the tubes, reattach and tighten securely..
    good luck

    Can't find the oil or transmission dipstick on my '99 rodeo.


    The oil dipstick is on the driver's side of the engine. Look a little low. There is no transmission dipstick. There is a plug on the transmission pan that has to be removed while the engine is running to check the fluid level. A special tool is needed to add fluid to the transmission.
