Re: where do i put transmission fluid
Thats the answer that you wanted, but I'm wondering if you know that to check the level, you need to have the park brake applied and the engine running....There will be two marks on the stick, one for cold fluid and the other for when the fluid is hot
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Buick has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual (typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities.) When adding transmission fluid to your Rainier, be sure to add it slowly as the transmission fluid capacity is reached quickly and it is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill. You can add fluid through the dipstick tube! Hope this helps. May god bless!
The Transmission fluid stick is located toward the back of the engine on the drivers side. Check on a level surface when the engine is hot and the vehicle is in "Park". Don't add fluid if within the crosshatch marks. Be sure to use the correct fluid if adding. Check your owner's manual for the correct Mercon fluid. My 2001 taurus with the 3.0 engine uses Mercon V (Mercon 5) only.
The Brake fluid can be visually checked. The master cylinder reservoir is also located on toward the back of the engine on the driver's side
if this is an automatic transmission, check your transmission fluid level. The fluid should be red, if it is orange/ brown colour and smells burnt. Will need to be changed. Take it somewhere to have fluid and filter changed. If you are mechanically inclined try flushing the fluid through the transmission. Disconnedt the driver side transmission cooling rubber line from bottom of rad. place the end of the hose in a large container. Put parking brake on, turn on vehicle and put into drive. the transmision fluid with pump out into container. Watch how fast it pumps out. When the fluids stops coming out, shut off engine and put back into park. Next drain remaining fluid out of transmission pan. There is 9/19 or 14mm bolt for this on bottom side of transmission. When this is done, refill transmission and repeat. This time you are flushing all the extra **** out of the transmission. Again check thre flow rate of the fluid coming out. It will come out faster this time. When finished replace transmission fluid again with new clean fluid. This should help free your shifting. When starting the engine for the first time. Put the brake on and put the shifter in 1st for a few seconds , then 2nd and drive, then reverse. This will also allow the fluid to begin to circulate.
If the transmission fluid was dark brown or black it would be wise to replace filter when you finish flushing transmission. To do this you have to disconnect the 4 wheel drive shaft to get pan off. Try just flushing the transmission first. I will look again in couple of days for your reply.
MIGHT need a new engine-to-transmission mount. or maybe the wrong fluid was put it. transmissions are very sensitive to what fluid it has. some transmission shops use generic brand fluid while a transmission needs specific fluid. find out if they used the proper fluid. if they didnt put the right one, get it flushed and put the right fluid in. get it checked by your mechanic to be sure.
go to www.autozone.com and search for a power steering pump for your car. print a picture of it. open your hood and find the thing under your hood which looks just like it, unscrew the top and put your fluid in there. it is 16 years old, do not be surprised if the pump or the hoses have gone bad and the fluid does you no good
TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE A DIP STICK.IT HAS A RED FILLER CAP INSTEAD.TO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID THE CAR HAS TO PUT ON A LIFT LEVEL.TRANSMISSION HAS A CHECK PLUG.ITS UNDER THE EXTENSION HOUSING.THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG IS BELOW IT.YOU NEED A DRAIN PAN AND THE CAR NEED TO BE RUNNING AT OPERATING TEMPERATURE.WITH ENGINE RUNNING YOU REMOVE THE CHECK PLUG.IF NO FLUID DIPS OUT YOU NEED TO ADD SOME FLUID.IT FLUID POURS OUT YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TRANSMISSION FLUID IN SYSTEM.IF YOU GET A SLOW DRIP YOU HAVE THE CORRECT AMOUNT OF FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.THE CAR HAS TO BE LEVEL AND YOU PUT FLUID IN THE TOP OF TRANSMISSION WHERE THE RED VENT FILL CAP IS.YOU NEED A LONG LONG FUNNEL TO PUT FLUID IN WITH OUT SPILLING FLUID ALL OVER THE PLACE.
Why do you need to check it as it is a sealed unit and as per jaguar
does not need to be checked so they say.......
Having said that
there is a allen head screw on the right side about 3inches above drain
plug. Take it off and see if fluid comes out if not add until it runs out
and put allen screw back in. No there is not a dip stick. To add fluid
there is a rubber plug or allen screw on top of tranny behind battery
box. You will need a long funnel.
A transmission solenoid is an electro-hydraulic valve that controls fluid flow into and throughout an automatic transmission. Solenoids can be normally open or normally closed. They operate via a voltage or current supplied via the transmission computer or controller. Transmission solenoids are usually installed in a transmission valve body, Transmission Control Unit, or transmission control module.
THIS IS A SEALED TRANSMISSION AND HAS NO DIPSTICK TUBE,THE DEALER HAS A SPECIAL TOOL FOR CHECKING FLUID LEVEL, THE PLUG FOR ADDING FLUID IS ON THE TOP OF THE HOUSING NEAR WHERE THE LEFT AXLE GOES OUT. DON'T JUIST BLINDLY ADD FLUID, IF U OVERFILL IT U CAN BURN UP THE TRANSMISSION.
