Need to locate auto trans dip stick tube to add fluid,for a 1995 isuzu trooper v6

I'm pretty sure that year does not have a dipstick or dipstick tube. Instead there will be two drain plugs on the transmission pan. One is the drain plug and the one more to the rear and to the side (i'm going off memory here so I might be wrong) if the fill plug. The engine will need to be running when you remove the fill plug. I will warn you that it is common for the nut for the fill plug to break loose inside of the drain pain making it impossible to remove. The fix for this is to replace the pan. If you get the plug out you will need to use a pump to add fluid to the trans until fluid starts to come out of the fill hole. When the fluid is done draining back out the trans fluid is full and the level plug can be reinstalled. Have a drain pan under the trans before you start removing the fill plug to catch any fluid that may come out or any fluid that comes out after you fill the trans. If you have any questions i'll be happy to answer them.

Cant drain trans oil, gt225

That trans should take 4.2 quarts of John Deere lo-visc hygaurd.With both plugs removed from bottom of trans as well as the bigger black plug on the front side of trans,it should fully drain in about 5 minutes.Dont forget to unscrew the black fill plug from top/left side of trans so it can vent.Your book may say not to remove it but it's a misprint.When you go to fill trans dont install fill plug until oil is at top of threads,then install plug/cap.Continue to fill trans through white plastic tank until its level with lines.

How to fill automatic transmission fluid 1998 Accord 4 door

there is a large fill plug on top of the trans. it is a 17mm. you can see it from under the hood on the rear top of the trans. by the way this bolt is typically very tight and then breaks free very loose so be careful you dont smash your hand when it breaks free. also if your doing a trans drain and fill its only 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 quarts. and i would recommend using honda auto trans fluid- hope this helps

How to change transmission fluid

There are 2 plugs in the trans. pan. The one that is lower or closest to center is the drain plug. The upper plug is the fill plug. Remove the drain plug to drain the fluid. I would recommend if the vehicle has over 60,000 mile that you also remove the trans. pan and replace the filter. You will need a pump of somekind to pump the fluid into the fill plug hole. Reinstall the drain plug make sure you replace the seals on both plugs.Remove the fill plug and pump f;uid in untill it comes out. With the vehicle level run the vehicle until warm shifting through foward and reverse several times. Trans fluid is full when fluid just begins to trickle out of the fill plug hole when hot. Reinstall fill plug with new seal.

Replace manual transmission fluid 2001 Saturn L200

on most cars that i have serviced the trans. if the trans has a dipstick tube. you can fill it from there. look for a plug that has a square hole (like a 1/2" ratchet would fit into) or the plug maybe a square head or even a bolt shaped plug. the drain could be on the side of the trans or the bottom. get yourself a Haynes manual #87020 at your local auto parts store or online

Checkin trans fluid

Here is how I do it. Hope this helps.

AT Fluid Level Check (No Dipstick)

Fill through Check/Fill plug on the bottom to the rear of the transmission oil pan until fluid flows over from hole. Install plug and with engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With transmission in PARK and engine running, remove Check/Fill plug and add fluid as needed until it flows over from hole. Transmission oil temperature must be 86° to 130° F (30° to 55° C)
