Does the red dip stick indicate where to top up the transmission fluid in a 1998 Grand Prix GT 3.8L engine?
There is not a speacial tube to refill the transmission fluid. Use a funnel and pour it down the dipstick tube. Hope this helps. "G"
The transmission fluid in an automatic transmission is added through the same tube that the dipstick sits in. For adding fluid, it is best to purchase a long-neck funnel, which is made just for this purpose. Be careful not to overfill the transmission. Always check the fluid level with the engine running, the transmission in either 'park' or 'neutral', and the vehicle on level ground.
The transmission dipstick is at the center rear of the engine comparment behind the distributor. This is how you have to fill the transmission fluid as well. DO NOT overfill the transmission fluid, that is the quickest and easiest way to damage a transmission. Transmission fluid is to be checked on a warm engine, idling in park.
On a 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis : The automatic transmission fluid level dipstick should be in the engine compartment , near the firewall ( the metal wall that divides the engine compartment from the passenger compartment ) just towards the passenger side of the vehicle ( where the rear of the engine connects to the transmission )
