How do i check the transmission fluid level?

With the engine and transmission at operating temperature, and on a level surface, leave the car run and pull out the dip stick marked "trans". Wipe it clean with a rag and put it back in. Pull it back out and look for the level of fluid on the end of the dip stick. It will be marked where the acceptable level of fluid is.

I found the transmission fill cap on my friend's 1998 Chevy Malibu, but where is the dip stick to check the fluid level located?

There is no dip stick. There is a 7/16 check plug just under the passenger side axle.The transmission must be warm and the engine idling in park to check. This tough to do without a lift.Fluid will drip out of hole when full.

How do I check he transmission fluid

Start the car and let it warm up. Set the parking brake and put the transmission in neutral. Then open the hood and on the drivers side of the engine is the transmission. There is a dip-stick that will say transmission. Pull the dip-stick and check the fluid on the dipstick.

Where is the dip stick to check the transmision fluid how do you check the transmision fluid?

2005 Chevy Malibu has a sealed transmission with no dipstick, so you can't check the transmission fluid level without getting underneath the car and looking at the transmission itself.

Locate the transmission. Look for a small plug with a hex bolt on the passenger side of the transmission, adjacent to the passenger side front tire.

Start the engine and let it warm up to regular operating temperature. Remove the hex bolt from the plug hole in the side of the transmission with a wrench or socket. If transmission fluid flows freely from the hole, the fluid level is correct. If it barely drips, or no fluid comes out, the transmission fluid level is low.

How do I check the transmission fluid....can not find dipstick.

GM as well as other car manufactures decided vehicle longer need to check the trans fluid, so they decided on making transmissions as a sealed unit, which no longer requires a dip stick. I know what your about to say, and I agree.

Were i chek transmition oil

On the back of the engine towards the firewall, you'll find another dip stick colored red just like the engine oil which is colored yellow. Check the transmission oil with the engine running and the transmission oil at operating temperature. Pull it the dip stick out and wipe it clean and take the second reading, there will be markings on the dip stick to where the transmission fluid should be and never over fill your transmission, thats just as bad as having not enough transmission fluid.

How do you check the transmission fluid level

It basically has a sealed transmission. Is the transmission showing any signs of leaking? The general rule of thumb is if the transmission is showing no signs of leaking, the fluid is good for 100k miles.

But, if you want to check the transmission fluid, put the car on jack stands so that it is level. On the drivers side of the transmission, about 2/3s of the way up, you will find a 15mm plug. Remove that plug slowly. If no fluid comes out, put your finger in the hole to see if the fluid is right at the bottom of the level of the plug hole. If so, it's good. Some fluid may trickle out when you remove the plug.

If the level is low and you need to top it off, you will find a red cap under the brake master cylinder under the hood. That is the fill location. Leave the plug out of the transmission, put a pan under it, and slowly fill from the engine bay until it starts to leak out of the transmission plug. Replace plug and you are done.

2001 malibu transmission slipping

lvd, Start the car, leave the shifter in park position.
Remove the transmission dip stick, wipe it clean, reinsert the dip stick and verify it is between the add and full mark.
Do not go over the full mark as that will create a slip condition caused by foaming oil.
Let me know.

Changing of spark plugs and transmission fluid,,,,,,,

dipstick should have a yellow handle on it and i'm assuming u are looking for 3 outta 6 plugs. They are behind the engine and usually accessible from underneath. Some GM models require removing the rear engine support mount and then tilt the engine upwards. I suggest u take it to a garage.
