Broken dipstick removal on 1.8l Nissan Sentra.

There have been issues with dipstick handles breaking off and dipstick stuck in tube. Here is a simple way to remove that broken dipstick. On the valve cover there is a hose that leads to the intake tube. Remove this hose and with a blow nozzle blow compressed air into the valve cover. The broken dipstick will shoot out of the tube. Simply install the new dipstick into the tube.

is the trans dipstick tube in the trans ? are you talking about the grommet at the bottom of the dipstick tube ? that goes in the trans first then push in the tube . if your talking about the dipstick itself wont go into the tube try slightly bending the tip and push it into the tube

Where is the transmission Fill plug on a 2005 chevy equinox?

There is no fill plug on transmission pans, you have to fill them from the
dipstick tube in the engine bay. Get a long funnel that will fit into the
dipstick tube hole, and then fill it that way. Make sure you turn the
vehicle on while filling it, and put it through all the gears, with your foot
on the brake. This will make sure your torque convertor is being properly
filled, along with the trans. Good luck.

How do i fill my transmission in my 2005 chevy silverado?

First, park vehicle on level ground, and leave engine running. Pop hood, look at the right rear of the engine compartment very near the engine, and you will see two dipsticks. The yellow one is engine oil; the red one is the transmission fluid.
With engine running and in park, and standing on the right side of the truck, not in front (to avoid moving parts), flip up the handle of the red dipstick (this is the dipstick lock), and withdraw the dipstick straight out of the fill tube. Wipe the dipstick off with a clean cloth, and carefully so as not to bend it (even if it is the cable type dipstick), re-insert it into the fill tube all the way to the bottom. Withdraw the dipstick again, slowly this time, and support the last six inches or so of it with your other hand as it comes free of the tube, and observe the fluid leverl on the dipstick. If the fluid level shows in the normal range, put the dipstick back in, and flip the lock back down; you're done. If it shows low, put a paper transmission fluid funnel (the kind with the strainer built in at the bottom) into the opening of the dipstick tube and slowly, adding no more than one pint at a time, pour fresh transmission fluid from a new container into the transmission. Recheck the fluid level after each pint of fluid. Repeat this operation until the proper fill level is reached.
All of this is done with the engine running.

How do I replace the oil dipstick tube?

The dipstick can be pulled out of the block with a pair of vicegrips and the new one driven down into the block. Before trying to pull the dipstick tube out make sure it is not held onto the block with a small bolt.

Where do I find the dipstick for my transmission on my 2005 Chevy Equinox?

Should be a red handled dipstick on the left hand side of the motor. Not all car's have the dipstick, many types, you have to go underneath, find the upper fill plug on the tranny, remove the plug, and reach your finger inside and you should feel the fluid at the top of the hole.

Where to add trans fluid on 06 silverado

Hello. I can assist you. You will need a funnel. Then remove the transmission dip stick and insert the funnel into that tube. Slowly add new fluid, checking as you go to be sure that you do not overfill. When you are satisfied that you have added enough, then remove the funnel and replace the dipstick.

Where do you put transmission fluid for 2005 chevy impala

automatic transmission fluid is filled directly through the same tube the transmission dipstick goes...a long neck funnel and slow pouring followed by constant level checking is best never overfill the transmission
