The 5R55W 5 speed automatic transmission doens't have a dipstick. It must be taken to the dealer to do anything with the transmission fluid. There are ways to change it yourself, but they probably aren't worth your time. If you have a 2001 or older, remover the pan (make sure you have something to collect the fluid), drain, probably should replace the filter, reinstall pan, good idea to have a new gasket, fill with appropriate amount of fluid. Your owners manual should tell you how many quarts and what kind. If you don't have one, ask the guy at the auto parts store when you pick up the fluid.

Before you can change the transmission fluid on a 1997 BMW 540-I you need to remove the plug and drain the old fluid. The new fluid is poured into the top of the transmission in the hole marked for transmission fluid.

Do you mean "change THE transmission" or "Change the transmission FLUID"? Big difference there....

There is not one. The transmission pan must be removed to change transmission fluid and filter.

If there is a real need to change the transmission fluid, one simply unscrews the drain plug on the bottom of the transmission. If there is a need to do this, it is strongly suggested that one drop the transmission pan and change the filter also. Always catch the old fluid in an approved container and dispose of properly.

Remove the transmission plug on the bottom of the transmission. The transmission fluid will drain out of the unplugged whole.

Remove the plug on the bottom of the transmission. Allow the transmission fluid to drain out. Replace the plug back to the bottom of the transmission. Fill the transmission with fluid.

you change the manual transmission fluid in a '99 cavalier simply by removing the transmission drain plug and allowing all the fluid to drain then replace the plug and refill with Syncromesh transmission fluid(that is the fluid recommended by Chevy for use in your transmission) It should take 2 quarts.

The most common cause for a transmission not to change gears, is low transmission fluid. Check the transmission fluid and fill to the full line.
