Where is transmission dipstick Chevrolet cobalt?

There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly on top of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission. With the car running (Warning: The car must remain running while plug is out!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. Don't shut the car off while it is running or else fluid will pour out.

Okay, You know where the transmission fluid dipstick is? You get a funnel, and pour the transmission fluid right into the little tube you pulled the dipstick out of.

(Remember though that the oil can only be accurately checked when the car is not running.)

94 merc topaz trans problem?

My transmission was low on fluid. My gears would slip, I'd be driving and then I'd push on the gas and I wouldn't go any direction. I was checking my transmission fluid while the car was off and it said there was enough fluid in it. I started checking my fluid while it was running and found out I was out of transmission fluid. Once I put fluid in it, my problem went away and has been running good since.

First off can you feel it shift through all the gears while off (not running). Second off while running can you shift through the gears or does it grind while trying to shift through them. If it grinds when you try to shift then your clutch is shot. Good luck
