SOURCE: checking transmission fluid level on 2005 c230 kompressor mb

what fluid did you want to check? oil, coolant, transmission, brake? let me know and maybe i can help. the leak you currently see what color is the fluid? black or dark brown probably enigne oil. red or dark brown probably some kind of hydraulic fluid--trans or brake, yellow, green or blue with a sickly sweet smell is probably coolant. i haven't worked on a c230 but as far as i know all transmissions have a dipstick where you can check the level. check your owner's manual. make sure the car is warmed up such as after a short drive to properly circulate and check the trans fluid. some cars also require the transmission to be placed in a specific position ie neutral when being checked. again check your owners manual.

to the guy that was critical about your question, i hope he stays as dumb and ignorant about his/her car as he seems as with his/her attitude--just keep bringing it to servcie, that way i can keep making a lot of money out of you. i actually prefer an owner who knows a litlte some thing about their car and how it works--it makes the job easier in communicating to me what may be wrong and thus i can save them time and money. we both win. just don't tell me what you think it is--just tell me the symptoms are, as a professional it's my job to figure it out from there. hope this helps.

SOURCE: transmission fluid level

I have a 1998 Isuzu Rodeo however when I purchased the vehicle I managed to obtain a service manual on mine.
Mine is a V-6 3.2liter engine with automatic transmission and it took me a while to find out where I added transmission fluid at too.

It is located under the vehicle on the Passenger side of the vehicle and it is located on the transmission just before the transfer case. There is like a eye beam across one side to another then there is like a Indent the lower one is for drain and the upper one with a larger bolt like plug is the fill hole. I used a turkey baster with a large bulb like affair to **** the transmission fluid in to it from the bottle then I inserted the baster up and into the hole vacated by the plug. Then squeezed the fluid into the transmission and kept at it till the fluid dripped out on its own. I hurried and inserted the plug into the hole and screwed into it and tightened it up and lowered the vehicle down checked after the vehicle had been warmed up and re jacked the vehicle up and rechecked and all I needed was a small squirt into it and it was full and since then it has been running really well since.

SOURCE: Transmission fluid type and level

This is complicated.... Ok, your right, no dip stick is there! This is how it works.
Underneath the car, there is a plug (11mm) on the transmission case on the passenger side. It is about 3" up from the pan edge and on the front side of the case. With the engine running in PARK, remove this plug. If trans fuild doesn't run out of the hole, the level is low. Pour it in the hole on top (where the red cap is) until the fluid runs out - all while the car is running. Once it is roughly dribbling out, the trans is considered full. replace plug. Your done!!
Easy ehh? Dexron III fluid

SOURCE: local mechanic says they can't check fluid level

"Sealed" means there's no dip stick tube.
The Explorers and Lincoln LS have this also.
It is nothing new and you can still change/flush the fluid as usual.
A special procedure is used to check the fluid level.
Not having the dip stick tube is one less place for dirt to get into the transmission.

I have a 2009 Buick Lacrosse. After a year of driving with no issues, it has a very loud whining noise every time I crank it and never stops until I turn off engine. Does it in drive and park and at all...


The most common source of the whine is the power steering pump is low on fluid or the pump is defective. Check the owner's manual for instructions on how to check the fluid in the pumps reservoir.

My 2005 buick lacrosse will not move. it will not shift into gear and the tires will not spin at all....what happened??


When is the last time you had the transmission fluid and filter replaced since you have owned the vehicle? If you have not had any of these things done, I would recommend starting there. If those do not solve the problem, then it might be the transmission itself. The transmission operates off of fluid pressure. When the fluid breaks down, it becomes thinner, and cannot engage the transmission properly. If the fluid breaks down, it also causes the transmission to get hot, or even overheat, causing damage to the transmission itself.

How do u add transmission fluid on a buick lacrosse 2006


The only way I know of to add transmission fluid to a transmission is through the same tube that the dip-stick is in. Add about 1/4 quart at a time. Usually, it is added while the engine is warm, idling in park or in neutral. It should tell you on the dipstick itself. Be sure it is on level ground. Do not overfill, or it will leak forever.
If the transmission level is low, then it must have leaked out in the first place. Try to find a leak by parking over night on fresh newspaper, and observe the paper the next day. If it is towards the front, then it might be the tubes going to the radiator, which cools the tranny oil right along with the engine coolant. If it is in the middle of the engine compartment, then it is the front seal, a major repair, so just maintain the level until the end of the car's lifetime. If it is towards the end of the engine compartment, then it is just an output seal, an easy fix by a competent mechanic.
Most transmission shops, as well as brake shops, will give you a free inspection. Sometimes, Wall Mart will too.
Good Luck.
