Open your engine hood and look in your engine bay.
Find the dipstick at the left side of vehicle, nearly exhaust extractor.

2001 kia sportage, put it in drive and it takes off fine but it takes high RPM'S BEFORE IT HITS ANOTHER GEAR


You either have a transmission or a torque converter problem. Check fluid for a discoloration or burnt smell. Then take it to AutoZone or similar and have them scan in for transmission codes. Then take it to a transmission shop for a complete diagnosed. This will save you money in the long run

I need to find the transmission dipstick in a 2011 Kia Sportage


The transmission dipstick will be closer to the firlewall on most vehicles It may have a handle with a picture of a transmission on it. You'll need to find the transmission drain plug if there is one. Some models you need to drop the transmission pan some you have to drop the oil pan before you can drop the transmission pan. Many you have to remove brackets and or exhaust parts before you can remove the other pans. See Tutorial

Kia optima 2008 how many quarts transmission fluid and what type


This info should be in your owners manual.
The 4 speed trans shows a total fill of 8 quarts and the 5 speed shows a total fill of 10 quarts. Just changing the filter should be half that amount for each transmission.
There are trans fluids for multi-brands of import cars, Dextron may also work.
Again, check your owners manual or look on the dipstick.

Where to add gear oil to manual 2002 kia sportage


For a manual transmission, an SAE 75W-30 transmission oil is recommended. For an automatic transmission, Dextron II E or M-III is recommended. The 2002 Kia Sportage hold 2 quarts of transmission fluid. It is recommended that these fluid levels be checked every six months and changed or refilled as needed. The fill spout should be on the left side of the engine block and the fluid will be red in color.

Where is the dip stick to check transmission fluid in a 2002 kia spectra


On the 2002 Spectra, it is just left of the air filter box. It has a red "button" on top of it. It's not a "loop" like the oil dipstick. It's just like a knob for a drawer, but vertical.

With an automatic transmission, you would add transmission fluid into the ATF fill port, which is located beside the transmission's dipstick.

I hope this helps you, if so please show me the 4 thumbs up for this free solution. Thanks Mike from Fixya.

Trying to find were to check and see if i need more transmissin fluid in my 2002 pontiac grandamGT


To check the transmission fluid level in your car you have to raise the vehicle up and take out the transmission fluid check plug in the transmission. It is locate just below and forward (Towards the front of the car) of where the right axle goes into the transmission housing. To fill it take the plug out then remove the red cap located on the upper side of the transmission housing. You will need a long funnel to add the fluid. Add fluid until it can be seen dripping out of the check plug under the car. Then replace the cap and reinstall the plug. (There is no dipstick on your car)

Do i leave the car on to check my transmission fluid


If you have an automatic transmission then yes you do. It should be checked at normal operating temperature (drive it for 15 to 20 minutes) and while the engine is running via the dipstick

Where is transmission fluid located? Where is stick to check?


Transmission fluid is located inside the transmission fluid pan. It is checked and added through the fill tube. The dipstick is located under the hood. You have two dipsticks, one for engine oil and one for transmission fluid. On some models, the dipstick for the transmission fluid may be located under the engine cover in the cab of the van between the driver's and front passenger's seats. If you simply cannot find two dipsticks under the hood, it's under the engine cowl.
