Where is the transmission fluid dipstick located on a 1996 GMC 1500 Sierra?
It is either on the back left in the engine department. Or you have a full plug on the transmission and its full when it spills overs.

%DETAILS%. Answer . It's small, only an inch across so look hard. FRONT Wheel Drive: Check to the sides of your engine. REAR Wheel Drive: Check in back of your engine next to the firewall..
Answer . the above answer that a manual transmission has no dipstick may not be entirely accurate. many manual transmissions (including that in my 1993 cavalier VL 5sp.) do have a dipstick for checking the manual transmission fluid. jack the car up and check the rear end of the transmission, just… below the level of the CV axles. look for a plastic cap with an "L" shape to it hanging over the back end of a plateau on the transmission casing. that will be the fill cap for your manual transmission, and should have a small dipstick attached to the end of it for measuring the amount of fluid in the transaxle. it is true that some transmissions are completely sealed and will not have this plug..

The 2005 Sierra 1500 does not have a replaceable fuel filter like previous years, it is now located in the tank with the fuel pump. . its dirrectly under the driver side against the frame rail
Answer . \nThere is no tranny dipstik, but there is a small black fill tube with a red plastic lock around it just above the starter.\nThis trans is supposed to be lifetime maint. free, but change the fluid and filter regularly if you value that car.
Answer . \nIf your car is 5-speed, there is no dip stick. The fill plug is the check on them. Unsure where there's one on an automatic.
Prelude Transmission Dipstick . \nI have an '87 Prelude and mine is located in the engine compartment on the passeger's side. It's actually on top of the transaxle down under the radiator's upper hose. You can burn your arm if you are not careful when reaching down to UNSCREW it. That's right, th…is dipstick is actually threaded into the transaxle. The top of the dipstick DOES NOT have a loop on it to hook your finger through, to pull it out and check it. Rather, it has a ridge that sticks up about 1/2". Kind of like a huge tip of a blade screwdriver. \nReach down about 12" below the top of the engine compartment, unscrew the dipstick and pull it up to reveal a little dipstick about 1-1/2" long.\nWipe it off and rethread it ALL THE WAY back in the transaxle. Then unthread it again and check it again to be sure you got the reading right. The hole that the dipstick sits in, is a filler hole about 1/2" in diameter. You'll need a long funnel or tube to pour in tranny fluid.\nBe sure and recheck the level when you are done.\nFor my year, this is a difficult and painful way to check the fluid when it's hot. It seems like it was an engineering mistake that should have had a dipstick on top of the screw-in filler cap instead.\nPerhaps your 1997 model had an improved design.\nZ-gear (MORE)
Answer . \nThere is no dipstick for the transmission. It has a check valve on the side of the pan.
The thermostat is located on the engine on a 1998 GMC Sierra 1500standard. The thermostat can be found by following the upperradiator hose directly to the thermostat,
Answer . \nLeft side and below the steering column. The cover has a finger pull, just pull out and down a little.
Stand at the front bumper of the Cougar (with the hood up & securely supported by the metal prop) and look to the right toward the back of the engine compartment on the driver's side. The transaxle dipstick is located between (behind) the air filter housing and the master cylinder reservoir (in fron…t & to the right of brake fluid). I think the handle on the dipstick is yellow (or some color other than black). (MORE)
Answer . I'm assuming that this is an automatic transmission. Either a TH350 or a 4L60. They don't have drain plugs. To drain the trans. you must remove the pan. After it's been removed and cleaned there are a number of different drain plugs that can be installed. All require drilling a hole in …the pan. \nIf you've never changed the fluid in an automatic you might want to have a shop do it. It's a pretty messy job till you get the hand of it! (MORE)
Where is the transmission fluid dipstick located on a Taurus - Sable and how do you refill the transmission fluid?
Answer Owners Manual will have illustrations and detailed information regarding transmission fluids, specifications, location, how-to read the dipstick, etc. See "Related Questions" below for more Step-by-step With the Sable parked on flat, level ground, run the engine until warm. Wi…th transmission in park, the emergency brake on and the engine running, open the hood, pull out the transmission dipstick (not the engine oil dipstick) that has a yellow handle. Wipe off the dipstick with a rag, re-insert into the dipstick tube all the way down, then pull it out again. Hold the dipstick in a vertical position so the oil does not run along the stick. Look to see where on the stick the red transmission fluid covers. It should be covering the two tiny holes at the bottom of the dipstick, but not higher than that. If it is between the holes, check regularly to see if it goes down. If below the holes, have an attendant add up to a quart as needed, after turning off the engine. Answer For fluid recommendation, refer to the Owners Manual AND the Ford Technical Service Bulletin - TSB linked below . For all Taurus / Sable, the TSB basically states that Mercon V is now the specified transmission fluid. . Answer Through the dipstick tube if automatic transmission. Through a removable plug on the side of the transmission if standard/manual. Answer Close to the driver's side of the engine compartment, back close to the firewall. If you are standing in front of the car, it will be just a bit to your left of the brake master cylinder, down low. 1995 Mercury Sable Transmission Dipstick The dipstick is located in the back of the engine compartment on the driver's side toward the middle. It's down low and you might have to move some wires to find it. The transmission dip stick (fill) is a few inches from the power brake booster near the firewall. You actually have to put it into the transmission fluid dipstick hole using a long funnel. I just did this tonight after speaking with my mechanic. Answer If you are facing the engine with the hood up it is on the right (drives side). The trans stick is a bit hard to see as it is down in a bit just to the left of the brake fluid reservoir. Will have a yellow handle. Pull the stick out and add the fluid. I would however suggest that you check the fluid lvl before you add to it. . Start car let it run until car is warm (temp gauge is in the middle of cold and hot). or you can drive car until it is warm. The fluid should be a light red color and be in the hash mark area on the dipstick. wipe dipstick and check a couple times to make sure. Answer Get a very long tube that attaches to the bottles of transmission fluid, or a funnel with a very long, narrow, flexible tube and stick that into the dipstick pipe. That's the only way to get stuff in there, without getting it all over the place. Under the hood, behind the engine on the left (driver's) side. It's also the transmission dipstick tube. Best not fill it all - up but the transmission checker tube is generally close to the firewall and you best find it quick or get someone to show it to you. If you're having tran problems get the fluid and filter changed but not by a transmission repair shop. Answer You put fluid in the same place you check it. Make sure the car is parked on level ground and you check it according to the instructions in your owner's manual or what is written on the dip stick. DO NOT OVERFILL!!!!! Answer Transmission "dip' sticks most of the times are located in front of engine (marked) trans. oil or spelled out transmission oil remove stick use funnel ,place it in hole of dip stick add transmission oil, remember to check trans oil when car is on at idle speed. turn car on, wait 6 to 10 minutes, then check trans oil level make sure car is on park with parking brake on(safety) Answer The dipstick tube for the '95 Taurus 3.0 is located on the driver's side near the firewall (about 6" in front of it) nearly below the master cylinder. When filling the trans simply place a funnel for transmissions into the tube (after removing the dipstick) and pour about 1 pint at a time into the tube, waiting about 10 minutes between pours to check the level. The 10 minute wait allows the fluid to drain fully from the tube so you won't get false results.

Answer Transmission at full operating temperture, engine running at idle, in park. Pull the dipstick and check the level. The add mark indicates 1 pint low. Caution: Do not overfill!! Answer towards the firewall, there is a red handle dipstick that says tranmision fluid, the same place that you check it. This is also where you fill it. Its a long skinny tube with the dipstick in it. You can buy a funnel at an autoparts store such as checker, schucks or kragen that is long and skinny for this purpose. They cost like $1.

The transmission fluid should be checked when the is vehicle is warmed up and while the engine is on. The Trans oil dip stick has a red cap and is located on the left side of the engine (when standing in the front of truck) and toward the windshield. Pull the dip stick a wipe, relace, remove and che…ck the level on the stick. Good luck. (MORE)
Yeah, there is no dip stick, You first must make sure car is level, (on jack stands) Warm car up. Use a cooking temperature gage and stick it in front fill spout , (it has red tamper seal on it) and it is hard to get to. Temperature must be between 95-113 degrees (trans oil) shift gears all the way …threw and then shut car off . Then un screw inspection screw on back of transmission. Now if no oil seeps out then add some a little at a time. If it pours out, then drain it till it drips, but it should not pour out unless someone recently put to much oil in it. You want just a small drip to come out and it should be the proper level, the liter of special trans axel oil you must get from dealer, and you guessed it, yeah 20.00 bucks a liter. You will also need a extra long flex funnel (MORE)
most likely inside the tank some more of gm wonderful engineering marvels. they my have given you a wonderful deal on the truck now its time to pay the piper
fuse panel is located below steering wheel to the left. there is a small cover that pulls off. it has aplace to place approximately two or three fingers in. On my 94 Sierra there are also a lot of fuse under the hood in the relay box mounted over the wheelwell on the drivers side. Also, a lot of …the functions that used to be protected by fuses are handled by relays in the same box. After mine turned 200k I have had to replace 6 of the relays (about $15 each at an aftermarket parts store). I know the horn, ignition, high beams, low beams, airconditioner and horn are all on separate relays. Also I remember that the trailer towing light fuses are in the relay box. (MORE)
The transmission fluid dipstick on a 1989 Mitsubishi Galant is nextto the engine block. It is on the driver's side, near the rear ofthe engine.
The 1999 GMC 1500 PU equipped with the 5.0L V8 have an undercarin-line EFI filter. The filter is located directly upstream of thefuel tank in the gasoline line going to the engine. The OEM ACDelco replacement fuel filter is #GF652.
The horn is located under the air box. You can see the horn if you lay down in front of your right front tire and look up.. The horn is located under the air box. You can see the horn if you lay down in front of your right front tire and look up.
The starter of the 1994 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup is located on thedashboard. It is usually attached by a small wire.
manual transmissions don't have dipsticks. you have to check it at the hole in the side of your transmission. It will most likely be in about the center and have a hole that the ratchet will fit. or look like a big bolt head sticking out. the fluid should be up to the bottom of the hole.
you realy need a VW agent as the level is checked using a diagnostic tool.
depending on the year of the truck. if it is in the late 90's it is on the driver side of the motor. It is in a stupid spot top get at. It is horizontal to the motor. if it is a 4x4 it is right behind the differential.
There is no transmission dipstick. Check fluid level by removing the inspection plug on the left side of the transmission. Only check fluid level with engine running otherwise fluid will overflow through the hole since fluid accumulates in pan with engine off. Normal level is to the top of the port.…. Also, if you have the automatic transmission on your 2003 CTS, there is no way to check the fluid level. See your owner's manual. (MORE)
I assume that you have an Automatic., 2.3L. As you open the hood, on your right side, look down between the rad and rad hose, its down about 12 inches. Close to the rad. Should be there. If you have a standard, then you do not have one. When the car is up on jacks, there is a check the oil level plu…g, once the plug is out, the fluid should just drip out very slightly. Check you manual for correct fluid type and levels. Dexron III or better is good. (MORE)
This is located to the right of the engine and usually has a yellowcap. It is a narrow cylinder and somewhat easy to miss.
Does a non-fuel injected 4.3 L engine manual transmission GMC Sierra 1500 1992 have a MAP sensor and where is it located?
There is no non-fuel injected 1992 model GMC Sierra 4.3 L. This engine has TBI (Throttle Body Injection). It may look like a carburetor but it has an injector mounted inside the housing.

The knock sensor is on the starter side of the engine. It is abuthalf way between front and back.
there is no dipstick for the forenza auto tranny. it is checked like a manual tranny. you have toremove the fill plug and add some until it drizzels out. also it uses a special fluid that you can only get at the dealer...... And it also uses a special tool to do it with
The IAT sensor is a separate two wire plug right off of the air filter box.
REMOVE THE SKID PLATE IF YOU HAVE ONE, IT IS RIGHT NEXT TO THE OIL PAN. THE OIL PAN IS ACTUALLY MOLDED AROUND IT. REPLACE IT WITH FRAM OIL FILTER, IT PROVIDES A BETTER GRIP FOR YOU.
You have to first remove the transmission linkage. Take a screwdriver and put it between the ball and sleeve of where the cable hooks to the lever on the driver's side. Then remove the blue plug thing and the metal [-shaped clip. Then push the tabs in on the side toward the front, make sure to push …them on both sides. Leave the white plastic clip alone. Then push the linkage all the way through the bracket and put it aside. You will need a speedwrench or just a regular ratchet and extension, and I believe a 7/16 socket for most of the bolts, and a 10mm socket for the 2 on the transmission linkage bracket. Then, starting at the front of the vehicle, remove the bolts one by one until you are down to 2 and transmission fluid is starting to spill out. Turn one out about half way, then slowly remove the other one, this will allow transmission fluid to spill out slowly without making a mess. Then, supporting the pan with one hand, use the other to completely remove the last bolt. Clean the pan and magnet thoroughly, and replace the pan gasket. The filter should come off fairly easily, but make sure that you replace the o-ring sealing it in as well. You may need a screwdriver to remove it. If your vehicle is 4wd, be VERY CAREFUL removing the pan, as it is difficult to do and you can easily damage a solenoid because they are exposed. Then replace the pan, bolt it back on (be careful not to tighten the bolts too much, they require only like 20 in/lbs. and are easily stripped. Then plug the transmission linkage back how it was, it should just click in place, and reattach the ball to the sleeve. I believe your vehicle takes around 4.5 Qts of Dexron You might a drain plug then you wont have to worry about a mess. If you have an automatic then chances are it is a 4L60-E or 4L65-E either way it holds 5 qts. Just make sure you top it off when the trans. is fully warmed up & engine is running DONT OVER FILL Yes it is Dexron, but make sure it is Dexron III (MORE)
Trace your fuel lines from the gas tank along the inside of your frame rail. It should be located about 2 or 3 feet from the tank.
Mine was black rubber coated, located drivers side engine compartment, behind the engine, under tubes/wires, close to the firewall, about a foot down, below the black (plastic) covering below the windshield.
\nif you have overfilled it. you either gotta do one of two things try to suck it out with a tube and a syringe, or take off the pan, the pan would be easiest, but most messy because its full the fluid will leak out. good luck.
typically it would have a 4l60e unless a hd. option truck or bib block the there is a chance it might be a 4l80e
It is screewed into the side of the engine block just in front of the starter. Passenger side of the engine. It will have a wire pluged into it.
If its an automatic half ton its the 4l60E if its a one ton its the 4l80E
You have to pull the diff. cover and let it drain. Then replace the gasket. Put the diff cover back on then fill with gear oil. 75w-90 is recommended but 75w-140 could be used if you are towing a lot. Fill to about 5/8" below the fill plug on the top front of the diff. No you don't have to unbolt …the cover. First check to see if you have a drain plug. It will be on the bottom of the differential housing. If you do it will save you money on a gasket. (MORE)
There is NO dipstick for the transmission. I've been trying to find out how to check the fluid level due to a small leak. So far, I've heard the oil has to be at a certain temp, but no one will say what that is; It has to go in one of two Allen headed plugs, probably the higher one on the tail end o…f tranny since oil poured out of the lower one on the side. Then I've heard you have to have a computer hooked up to determine the correct fluid level while everything is at the correct temp. When I tried to put some of the $62 a liter fluid in the plug on the tail end, it ran out as fast as I put it in, indicating that there may be a check valve which would make me you might have to put fluid in under pressure and that the fluid level may actually be above the plug! I'm still trying to find out answers to my questions, but the answer to your question is there is NO dipstick! (MORE)
