Hi Jeff, all 2000 big twins came with a dipstick to check transmission fluid level. If memory serves me correctly there were some early FLT/FXR models that came with a fluid level plug that was about half way up on out side cover that took a 3/16" allen. That being said I highly recommend you buy a complete set of allen wrenches or allen sockets for two reasons. They are relatively inexpensive less than $10 if you buy them at Harbor Frieght or other discount place and your going to use the other sizes anyways. Good luck

SOURCE: Transmission fluid capacity for 2000 Kia Sephia?

The four speed automatic shows a total fill (that is all the fluid it can hold) is 5.7 Quarts. So if you just dropped the pan and relplaced the filter, you shouldnt need more than 4 quarts and likely you would have a little extra with that.

SOURCE: need to check transmission fluid

you will have to raise the vehicle. Look on tranny. You will see two plugs, a lower side drain plug and a higher side check/fill plug. Remove higher side plug, stick your finger in the hole. If you can feel the fluid at top of hole, then it is full, if not, then you will have to add some which is always the tricky part.

SOURCE: how do i check my transmission fluid? for a 2000

there is no transmision dip stick on this car. under the air filter housing has red cab for filling the trany.
for level check you have to lift the car and there is a level plug on transmision remove the plug and fill the fluid till starts to drain from the plug. so you have to bring to vehicle to shop. check your owner manual to service time and milage for the not add transmision fluid just by guess owerfill will make more problem.

How do you check the transmission fluid on my 2002 Softail

Unscrew the trans dipstick. It is on the right side of the bike, on the trans cover (where the clutch cable goes in) and has an allen head on it. Stand the bike upright and level. Insert the dipstick until it sits on top of the threads, don't screw it in. Pull it out and make sure the oil level is between the add and full marks.

Transmission a mechanic said a hose rotted and the transmission died?? how can i fix it without replacing the tranny

Although this is may not work depending on transmission wear and tear, you will need to do this if you plan to replace transmission any way. Replace the damaged hose. Next I would get a transmission filter kit. This is a simple kit that is sold at part stores and includes filter and gasket. You will need to buy transmission fluid and a gasket sealant. Jack up the vehicle, drain the transmission fluid by loosening the transmission pan, if you need help finding this check the gasket shape you purchased. The pan will most likely be stuck a little from the previous gasket sealant. Carefully pry it apart with a flat head screwdriver or pry bar, transmission fluid will go when pan is dropped, so, be careful in placement of pan and how much you loosen all bolts. when pan is dropped check for metal shavings inside. If you have none things are looking good. Remove filter most oftenly attached with phillips head screws. Check this filter for debris and metal. If you do not spot anything serious by now, replace using new filter. Ensure you have a clean surface for the new gasket after removal of old gasket. Once you have this done, add a thin layer of sealant to pan and place gasket on top of it. Apply another thin layer of sealant to the other side of gasket and reinstall to transmission using correct tightening sequence and torque. These bolts do not need to be overly tight. Most leaks happen from overtightening bolts to pan. Usually a lil over hand tight is fine, but, check with you parts store. Add fluids to proper level and then you will be able to test the transmission out. I know it sounds like alot, but, it cheaper than buying a new transmission if you don't have to.

Tip stick for transmission

It does not have a dipstick.To check the fluid trans fluid has to be warm then you take the allen screw out of plug in pan, see 1st pick and you should have a steady drip from the hole. If you have to add fluid you would need the special tool shown in second pick and a tool to pump fluid in.
