The transmission fluid fill is under the hood of the car, the same place the dipstick is. You'll need to take the dipstick out, and fill to the specs, but the fluid will then fill the pan where it needs to be.

Manual how to replace transmision oil


The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

How can I change the transmision fluid in my 2005 chevy equinox?


Most transmission pans do not have a drain plug. To drain the transmission the velicle will have to be raised. I usually set a large drain pan-several quarts in size-under a rear corner of the transmission pan. I loosen about three bolts on the corner so the transmission fluid will drain. When drained, I remove the rest of the bolts-all 32 or more of them. With the pan off check the color of the fluid look for burnt looking fluid. See if the fluid smells burnt. If so you may have other transmission problems. Look for metal pieces in the transmission pan another indicator of other problems. Clean all the old gasket from the pan and transmission housing-be careful not to gouge either the pan or housing. I use my finger or thumbnail if possible. Gouging either of these places will cause leaks. If you're going to replace the screen do so now. Place the new pan gasket on the pan. Check with the manufacturer's specs before using any permatex or other silicones to hold the pan gasket. I always slide a bolt or two through the pan and gasket holes, lift the pan, and start the bolts. Go slow. Make sure each bolt is going through the gasket hole before tightening it to the transmission housing. Replace the bolts and tighten to a snug using a criss-cross pattern. Go back and forth across the pan tightening each bolt a few turns until all are tight. Don't overtighten the bolts. Doing so will damage the pan gasket, When all bolts are tight, refill the transmisson slowly checking for leaks. Fill the transmission to manufacturer's specifications.

How do i put in transmission oil 2004 volkswagen passat


There is no dipstick on these vehicles like u will find on older american cars.

The transmission fluid can only be checked when the transmission fluid temperature is between 35 to 45 degrees celcius.

The only way to know the fluid temp is with a diagnostic scan tool. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one.

How many ATF go to the aut. trasmission?


You need a scan tool to check the automatic transmission fluid on this car. The scan tool is needed to know the temperature of the fluid which must be close to 40 degrees celsius. At that point you remove the fill plug in the bottom of the transmision pan and fill with fluid until fluid drains back out. Use only genuine VW fluid part number G 052162A2 or you will damage the transmision. If you fill with fluid while tranny is to cool you will over fill and damage the transmission. If you fill with fluid when the tranny is to hot you will underfill and run a slight risk of damaging the transmission. The fill plug and drain plug are next to each other so make sure you are removing the right one. <<<< The above I found on a vw site, The tranny should take about 5 qts for a filter change, or 12 qts for a total rebuild. And the fill plugs on th eside of the tranny, one should be up, that is the filler, and lower one is the level, when it seeps out the lower one, it is full. Hope this helps.

I have a 2002 Passat wagon, with a1.8 l engine and a 5 speed automatic transmision. By mistake I drained the transmision. |How do do I refill the transmision so that I can take it to a shop to top it up...


Find the transmission filler tube under the hood. Get a funnel, and fill. Do not overfill, and use proper tranny fluid for your cars' specifications. Your user manual should have a capacities index, and the type of trans. fluid to use listed somewhere in the manual. Hope this helps.

Where is the transmission in line filter located for a 92 saab


I assume you have an automatic transmision (the manual is basically "fill and forget unless it leaks" as it wasn't designed with a drain point, but check the level periodically, anyway) Like pretty much all auto trans, the filter is located inside the bottom pan, and for Saab is a metal encased rectangular unit, with rounded end. It is cleanable and re-used. Drain the pan; clean the pan exterior and drop it; remove filter mounting bolts and filter and clean with suitable solvent or clean ATF; clean pan and magnet in pan and reinstall magnet in the SAME position; re-install filter with NEW O ring; dry pan and re-install with NEW gasket (no sealant); install drain plug; re-install cross members/support plates what have you torques: pan mounting bolts 71-106 in-lb drain plug 44-71 in-lb REFILL the transmission, and with handbrake on and engine running, shift through all gears. Then re-check fluid levels and check for leaks. If this helps you, please give a "thumbs up" thanks Saabreur

How can i change the transmision oil?


You have to drop the transmission pan and it's a mess. Or you can take get to a service center and let them do it for about $129 - $200 which they will flush the trans out and put a filter and new gasket back on it and fill it up with trans fluid.

I would like to change the transmision fluid in my 1996 s-10 pickup 4.3 eng any advice???


Unfortunately GM didn't put a drain plug in the transmission pans. You'll need a transmission service kit which will have the filter and new pan gasket. Put a large catch can under the pan, loosen all the bolts and crack the pan loose from the transmission and allow the fluid to leak out. Next remove all but two bolts letting the fluid drain as you go. With one hand on the bottom of the pan supporting it remove the last two bolts. Lower the pan down and drain the rest of the fluid out. The rest is pretty simple and hopefully less messy. Wiggle the transmission filter out, remove the grommet and replace it with the one supplied in the kit. Clean the pan, especially the magnet of metal shavings. Clean the gasket surfaces. Place the new gasket on the pan and thread a bolt in each corner into the gasket. Bolt the pan up and refill with transmission fluid.

How to change oil transmission isuzu rodeo 2003


There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the pan. remove the lower one to drain the trans fluid. To refill, use a pump and pump the fluid into the upper drain plug until it seeps out and re-install the plug, similar to refilling a manual trans.
Once this is done, Start the vehicle and run it for about 3 minutes, shifting through all gears (do not drive vehicle Remove the upper drain plug and let any excess fluid drain out. Done. This is as per Mitchell OnDemand.
