There is no dipstick. It's a sealed unit.

I have just installed my JVC KD-R720 in dash reciever in my 1999 Pontiac grand am and also have subwoofers. The amp turns on but i am getting nothing to the subs. I know its not the amps connection cause...

Check a few things. Make sure the head unit is getting power. Then make sure that your RCA cables are connected to the right output RCA's fromt the head unit. If this is ok, check to make sure the RCA cables didn't get crimped somewhere. If this is still all ok, check the volume on the unit and to see if you have the unit on mute. Sometimes it's little things like that. Did you adjust any settings to the amp? If so, check the gains. Hope this helps.

I just got an oil change in my '03 neon this last Saturday. I also brought it in to have the transmission checked yesterday(2/3) and they read the codes for me. One of the codes was for Low Oil Pressure. I...

First of all you must check the OIL sump Level in the engine. Lift the dip stick to find out the level. Now if this is lower then look under the car for any leaks. If not the fault can be the OIL PRESSURE SWITCH. Check the wires to this switch and trace for any breaks in the wiring.

There probably isn't one. It is a sealed transmission and the idea is that if there is a problem, you have to take it to a shop/dealer for service. There is a drain and a fill hole in the transmission, and you almost need a lift to access them. If you can reach them, remove the fill plug and poke your finger inside and if you feel fluid just below the edge of the hole, then the level is adequate. This is how you would fill or refill the transmission.

Hope this helps.

Tranmission had motor oil put in it by mystake dove it for one week befor i realised how to repair it the bands have just started sliping

That's not good.
The best advice I can give you is drain the transmission fluid and remove the tranny filter(requires removal of transmission pan), flush several quarts of tranny fluid through with the pan removed to grab any residual oil,replace tranny filter with a new one, reinstall pan, re-fill tranny pan with proper oil and add a whole bottle of "Lucas Transmission Stabilizer". The stabilzer works wonders with the slipping, although if you keep driving it the way it is now you will at worst "grenade" your tranny, if you take the steps above you could still get a lot of life out of it provided no serious damage has already been done. Seek a mechanic if you are not familar with the disassembly mentioned above.

Good Luck
Hope this helps
