How do you check transmission oil level in a Mazda 323 automatic transmission


Your owner"s manual will have the details. Usually it is something like: warm up the transmission by driving x miles. Stop the car then slowly cycle through all the gears (with the brake on, engine running). Put it in park, turn off the engine. Then, within 1 minute pull out the transmission dipstick, wipe it, put it in then pull it out again and then look at the oil level. It should fall within the two range marks. The reason for checking it this way is that the tranny oil pump pumps oil into the torque converter, and the converter takes oil, lowering the oil level on the stick. So the level you see on the stick is really the oil that's left after filling the converter.

I would like transmission


if youre asking about the transmission fluid - it usually has a yellow handled dipstick saying Trans Fluid or something that allows you to check the level. transmissions usually generally take ATF (automatic transmission fluid) unless otherwise specified, just check the owners manual if u have it.

same goes for the oil, best to just check the manual for the oil type such as 5w30 or 10w30, otherwise it should say on a sticker/label underneath the hood somewhere. there will be another dipstick like for the transmission to check the oil level from the oil pan.

Transmission


There are two types of transmissions in 1991 Toyota Corolla. Manual Transmission and Automatic Transmission.
1. Manual Transmission:
The transmission oil is checked through a level bolt which is provided to the left CV joint side in the middle of transmission. To check the oil level, park the car on a level floor, remove the level bolt with 22 mm or 24 mm spanner. If the oil starts coming out of this hole the oil level is considered OK. If not, top up the oil till it starts coming out and tighten the bolt. The recommended manual transmission oil grade is 75W/ 90W and total capacity is 2.4 Litres.

2. Automatic Transmission:
Warm up the engine, park the car on level floor, pull up the hand brake, gear lever stick in P, keep the engine start, let the radiator fan come on, take the auto-transmission stick out, wipe it with a clean dust free cloth, insert it in, again take it out, keep the stick in horizontal position and check the oil level. At operating temperature the auto-transmission oil level should be at upper level (Hot). If not, add oil to mach the mark. The recommended auto-transmission oil is Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) Dexron II, and total (drain and refill) capacity is 1.4 Litres.

How do i check a volvo 850 turbo's transmission fluid? do i have engine running? off? in park or neutral? thanks


Check the oil level as follows:

Park the car on a level surface with the engine idling . Slowly move the gear selector lever through all the shift positions and then to position P. Wait 3 minutes before checking the oil level.
As the illustration shows, the dipstick has a COLD and a HOT side. The oil level should between the MIN and MAX marks. Wipe the dipstick with a clean cloth.

WARNING! The oil may be very hot.



Do not use rags that could leave lint on the dipstick. The transmission is topped up via the dipstick tube. The space between the MIN and MAX marks on the dipstick corresponds to 0.5 US qt. (0.5 liter). Do not fill the transmission with too much oil, since this can result in oil being ejected from the transmission. Too little oil, on the other hand, can negatively affect transmission operation, particularly in very cold weather.

A Cold transmission: oil temperature 105° F (40° C). This is a normal temperature for the transmission after idling for about 10 minutes. At oil temperatures below 105° F (40° C), the level may be below the MIN mark.
B Warm transmission: oil temperature 169° F (80° C). This temperature after driving for about 30 minutes. At oil temperatures above 190° F (90° C), the level may be above the MAX mark.

Fluid type: ATF Dexron IIE and Mercon.

I have an orange light with a oil can picture but its not the oil light an the coolant and windscreen wash is at the right level thanks


transmission fluid level is low, if it isn't the oil light, but as a precaution, check the oil level anyway just to be sure. If it is an automatic transmission, I do believe it would be the transmission fluid being low. check your fluid levels.

Transmission stuck in neutral (automatic) won't engage drive or reverse


first i would check the transmission oil, do this by starting the engine and leave it running, select all the gears (park, Reverse, neutral etc) then put it back to neutral, leave engine running then locate the transmission dipstick in the engine bay, remove and wipe the dipstick, replace then pull out again, if the oil is showing between the cold and hot marks then level is ok. I shoing lower or none, top up the oil level with automatic tansmission oil, keep rechecking the oil level as adding oil as to ensure it is not over full. will need to select all gears again before checking oil level again.
If the oil level is correct than quite likley a Transmission failure will require mechanic.
