Where is the place to put automatic tranny fluid?

Most cars have a tube-like device with a removable fluid level checking "dip stick" in it connected to the transmission. The d stick has fluid level marks on its very tip showing low to full. You wipe the d stick clean insert it with the motor running in park gear. Insert and remove and take a look at the end of the d stick. Your looking for wetness of oil and this gives you the actual level of oil in the tranny. Compare the wetness to markings on the stick to tell if you need to add more ATF oil to the unit or not. Add a 3rd of a quart at a time and recheck until the wetness is at the full mark - if low on fluid. This dip stick and tube is usually spotted easily by looking for its special knob end - which can be yellow, red or have TRANS written on it somewhere around the motor area - and don't confuse the motor oil dip stick for the one you're looking for. Some cars have no such device. Checking then become a mechanics chore once the car is up on a lift. This link shows great products to assure years longer transmission life. Hope this helps.

Broke dipstick

in the auto parts store or in the tool section in a hardware store there is a long metal spring looking tool that has metal fingers that extend out when pushing down on the button and grab and retract when button is released
the tool is about 24 inches long most times it has a red T handle. if that will fit down the dip stick oil tube it should garb and hold the dip stick enough to remove it. next time when attaching an object back to the handle if it is metal clean / dry and try some JB weld pull test for rigidness and good contact.

How do i remove a dip stick housing?

If it's an oil dip stick tube and it presses into the bottom of the engine block. There should be a mount on the tube with a bolt whole that bolts to the block. If it is a Transmission Tube for automatic the same thing but bolts to the bell housing bolt top left of bell housing. Good Luck. Have a great day. Eddy the Master Mechanic.

I can't locate where to check the transmission fluid,there's a cap on top of the ****** that says ****** fluid but there's not dip stick

I am at a bit of a loss. Not only do I not know what Saturn you have but this site edits words that should not be edited. (I don't know what a ****** or a ****** is)

Regardless of what Saturn or those words, most the automatics I see (German cars are oddballs)have a tube where the transmission is filled and the dip stick is inside that tube. (may have a red handle) Perhaps your dip stick broke off. Can you look into the tube and see anything? The dip stick is long enough and the tube is deep in the pan where the broke dip stick should not fall all the way into the pan.

The oil dip stick handle was broken off the oil stick by a service technician and the remaining plastic and stick are lodged down inside the extension tube by about 1/2" from the top. Do you have any...

One way is to remove the tube from the engine block or the other way is to use a coat hanger and heat the end of the hanger red and then slide into the tube as so it can melt into the plastic try not to wiggle hanger and allow to cool then try to pull out, this may need to be done a few times to remove the dip stick, note dont push down hard as to not push the stick in further, hope this helps.

How do you remove broken oil dipstick from a 1999 ford escort?

The dip stick tube is pressed into the engine block. Put a bolt into the top of the tube so that the body of the bolt goes into the tube and the bolt head rests on the tube (so it does not fall down the tube). Use a wrench (such as a Vise grip) to hold onto the tube at the bolt and gently work it back and forth, being sure not to deform the tube. Remove the tube and old dip stick. Replace the tube by forcing it back into the eng. block. Replace the dip stick - done :)! Some dip stick tubes have a gasket at the engine - others just **** up to a shoulder that is built into the tube. Let me know if this works. Thanks.

Oil dip stick handle for Ford Focus ZX3 broke off. Rest of the dip stick still in the tube. How do I retrieve the remaining portion of the oil pan dip stick?

Drill small hole in what's left inside the tube - insert bolt extractor - pull out dip stick. Material is relatively soft so drilling is easy. Buy new dip stick.

you have to locate the tranny dip stick and pull it out- then get a funnel that will fit down the hole- and slowly pour in tranny fliud. check level by putting dip stick back in (allow time for fuild to drip down out of the tube) make sure engine is running and is warmed up while reading fluid level on dipstick. Make sure it is the tranny dip stick and not the oil dipstick. oil is usually yellow and says oil on it- Trans is usually red.

Transmission fluid

First make sure you need transmission fluid by checking the fluid level. To do this the transmission needs to be warm, in park with the engine running. Pull the dip stick out of the tube and wipe off with a rag or paper towel. Re insert dip stick all the way down and pull dip stick back out. Is the fluid red and is the fluid level in the hatch marks? If so it's ok. If below the min. level mark you will need to add fluid. Use a funnel and stick into the end of the transmission dipstick tube. Add the necessary amount of transmission fluid by pouring it into the funnel. Use ATF-3 fluid and do not overfill. Add a little at a time (like a 1/4 of a quart at a time). Also when checking fluid level be sure vehicle is on level ground.
