On my girlfriend's 93 (same generation), it's right in front, between the two middle exhaust manifold runners. You should see a hole in the heat shield, and the dipstick handle is right there. If the dipstick is missing, look through that hole with a flashlight and you'll see the tube there.

1992 cadillac deville leaking oil at dipstick

I would look for other leaks. If you are sure it's leaking at the dipstick tube, there is normally an o-ring where the tube presses into the engine. In general, this is an odd place for a leak, as ther eshould be no oil pressure in the pan (where the tube terminates) and unless the engine is overfilled with oil, the tube end shouldn't be immersed in oil to leak. IF there is pressure in the oil pan, that generally indicates bad rings. I have seen engines where the oil dipstick actually pops out of the tube under pressure when the engine is running due to pressure in the oil pan from blow-by at the rings.

Checking oil level on my V3 Vortech dipstick is located on side of unit . Pics available

The dipstick tube should be as high as the top of the engine, and you should be able to remove the dipstick from it by simply pulling it straight out (no unscrewing).
No oil should come out because engine oil only goes up about a third 1/5th the way inside the engine. So unless it is overfilled, you shouldn't worry about pulling the stick up and out.
Check the oil level with the car on level ground, and with it turned off for at least 10 minutes so all the extra oil drips down to the bottom of the engine first. Then pull the stick straight up and out, wipe all the oil off of it using a paper towel or clean tissue, then put the dipstick back in (you may need to turn it left or right just a little bit to help it past some of the bends in the tube). Push it ALL the way in, then pull it straight back out again. Look for the oil sticking to it at the bottom. You should see a clear line somewhere between the full and fill lines.
If it is low, but there is at least SOME oil, take it to a Jiffy Lube and have them check and top it off. IF there is NO oil on the stick, you should not start it until some oil is added.
I cannot go in to how to add oil here as it is different on different cars - but you do NOT put oil into the dipstick hole.

How do i check/add transmission fluid in my 1991 trooper II?

Similar to the oil dipstick, there is another in the back of the engine, it is coming from the transmission. Usually there handle is painted RED, but that can vary...

Once you locate this, you'll want to have the engine running for about 15 minutes in order to get a correct reading at the reccomended operating temperature,

Remove the Transmission dipstick from the tube and wipe it off with a cloth, paper towel, etc...
Reinsert it in the tube and seat it before removing it again and veryify the level is in the correct range... (Usually noted on the dipstick.)

Not all, but most vehicle manufacturers reccomend checking this while the vehicle is in neutral, so be sure to have the parking brake on and be careful with any loose clothing or shirt sleeves as you dont want to get caught up in a rotating fan...

The tube in which you find the Transmission dipstick, is also the location you will need to add any new fluid through... You'll need a transmission fluid funnel... If you dont know which is which, simply ask to verify this at the part store...

BTW, You could simply drive to a part store such as Napa, Oreillys, Autozone, Shucks, or whatever is available in your neighborhood and ask someone there to help you locate it... as well as the correct fluid...

Hopefully you will find something of use in this.

Good Luck and Happy Motoring...

I can't find the well for the Automatic Transmission Fluid. I see the cap for engine oil, brake fluid and steering fluid but no transmission fluid. Please help!!!

You must locate the transmission dip stick. Look towards the rear near the firewall. It looks like the oil dipstick but larger. You fill up or add transmission fluid through the transmission dipstick hole.
Good luck and thanks for your question and I hope my suggestions help. burdfrenzy

How do i put oil into the automatic gear box i can find the dip stick but no way of putting the oil in


Good thing you know the dipstick is located!

Try to use a funnel that fits in the dipstick tube, insert the funnel in the hole of the tube and pour the ammount of fluid you needed to top up your transmission.

Hope that helps you a lot!

Thanks for using Fixya!

Need to know how to check oil in transmition in a 95 ford aspire

Check the engine oil level every time you fill the gas tank. The car should be on level ground when checking the oil.
  1. Turn the car off and wait several minutes.
  2. Locate the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube.
  3. Wipe the dipstick with a clean rag and reinsert it in the dipstick tube.
  4. Remove the dipstick again, hold the dipstick horizontally and observe the level of the oil.

Fig. 1: Grasp the engine oil dipstick and withdraw it from the tube

Fig. 2: Observe the oil level on the dipstick and add oil if it is low

  1. The oil level should be at the FULL mark on the dipstick.
  2. If the level is at or near the LOW mark, replace the dipstick and add fresh oil to bring the level up to the FULL mark. Do not overfill.
  3. Recheck the oil level and close the hood.

Good luck, and remember rated this help!!!
