SOURCE: 1997 chevy cavalier Z24 2.4l autotrans. fluid level

Hi losflip,
There is a plug located where the right side axle shaft enters the transmission it is above the pan. To check the fluid level of the transmission the engine must be at operating temp and the vehicle must be level. The must be running and the transmission in park, the plug is then removed and if transmission fluid starts dripping/leaking out it is full. If not transmission fluid should be added till fluid starts leaking from the plug hole, then just reinsert the plug and tighten. Generally this is done with the vehicle on a lift in order to access the plug, you might be able to do this if you have enough room to access the plug remember the vehicle must be level.

SOURCE: checking fluid in transmission

There is no dipstick on a manual transmission. On a manual tranny, you check the fluid by pulling the fill plug on the side of the transmission. The fluid is supposed to be even with the bottom of the fill plug hole. Gently stuck your finger in there and on a fully serviced trans. you will feel the fluid on your finger tip. On an auto transmission the dipstick is on the passenger side near the exhaust manifold close to the firewall. Also you fill the trans thru the dipstick. Make sure you use the proper fluid and the correct amount.22

SOURCE: Cant find a dipstick to check transmission fluid

Sometimes like in a BMW there is no dipstick and the fluid may be checked by a cylinder container much like the brake fluid resevoire. It would have a dipstick in the cap.

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

Car starts goes in gear but want move


check transmission fluid. There should be a dipstick under the hood only if it's automatic. If it's a standard, there is a lot more to checking fluid. If there is nothing showing on your dipstick add some through the dipstick tube. Never add fluid though while car is running in gear as it will take off on you when fluid reaches transmission. Add a liter, check again, then follow the proper way to check the fluid level. The proper way will be written on the dipstick itself. It may say check hot in park, or check in neutral, but never add it like that if there is nothing showing on the dipstick.Let me know how you make out

Every gear is like neutral what can itbe on my 1997 dodge stratus


On a automatic it is important to check the transmission fluid this is done when the vehicle has reached operating temperature.Dodge is good at listing the type of fluid they require on the transmission dipstick,vehicle in park car at idle at it must be within the specific mark they have listed on the dipstick,when the fluid is low there is not enough pressure to trtansfer power for a clutch engagement and it will flare and slam in gear.Check your fluid level,

Were do i put transmission fluid in the tranny 1997 cadi catera


Your Catera has a sealed for life transmission so therefore on one of these models there is no dipstick and you cannot check the fluid level yourself. The dealer can check the level but that is only necessary if you have a leak. Use a premium grade oil and a quality filter such as AC/Delco, Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. The correct weight oil is listed in your owner's manual and possibly on the oil fill cap or dipstick.

My 1998 cadillac concours just gave me the code 730


This code means there has been excessive slip in the transmission, possibly due to lack of fluid.

Check the fluid level by warming up the car then check the dipstick with the engine still running.

Or....you may have a faulty vehicle speed sensor (VSS) located on the output shaft transmission casing.

I have a Cadillac CTS 2004.. 3.6L V6 engine. I need to know if my car has a dipstick? And is it to check the level or just a hole to fill.


I too have the 2004 CTS.
Just today, my dealership checked my transmission fluid level because I have gear noise.

There is NO dipstick!

The car is put up on the hoist with motor running and transmission in neutral.
There is a fill / level check plug located on drivers side of transmission through which the level is checked.

1997 sL1 Saturn manual transmission hard to change gears


The dipstick is behind the battery, below the master brake cylinder and is not the clutch reservoir. It has a red flip top handle instead of a ring like most dipsticks. It was hard for me to find due to engine grease. I had the same problem and was able to see that I was low on fluid (only a little) and adding fluid helped the problem. Questions? kurt1431 at comcast dot net.
