There is no dipstick on a '98 Oldsmobile Cutlass, so you must take it to a mechanic and have the transmission serviced after 100,000 miles (per the owner's manual). Poor design if you ask me.

There is a dipstick probably with a red cap on it that pulls out. Have the car on a level surface, engine at operating temperature. Pull stick out wipe it off and look on the stick for possible specifics. It may say "check when hot at idle in park" or " check while hot in neutral". etc. Insert back in and see where level is versus where it should be.

You add fluid at the same place you check it.

Pull out the transmission dipstick (red handle) just as you would for checking the motor oil, but with the engine running and the transmission in neutral or park.

Add it the same place you check it, through the dipstick tube. Check the level with the transmission hot, in park, engine running, on level ground. Use only Dexron fluid. Do not overfill!!!!!

I got 2 gallons of transmission fluid... Use one gallon then keep checking the dip stick for the fluid to rise.

Most likely brake fluid. Check the master cylinder level.

A 1992 Oldsmobile may not shift out of park because the transmission is stuck. Check to transmission fluid to ensure it is at the proper level.

If your Oldsmobile Alero will not shift into overdrive, the transmission may have froze up. Check the fluid levels to determine if you are low on fluid.

The 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass cooling system has a fluid capacity of 5.5 gallons. The cooling system fluid should consist of 50 percent antifreeze.

Check to see how much fluid is in your transmission.

An 89 Cutlass Ciera holds 7.4 quarts of transmission fluid. When servicing the vehicle, a portion of the fluid remains in the transmission and will not be added back.

Between the engine and firewall labeled TRANS. Under the Air Filter/ Intake box there is a red cap on the transmission for putting in fluid. There is no dipstick that I know of on a 1999 Cutlass w/ 3100 "J" motor.

A transmission fluid leak means that the plug may need to be replace, or the seal or gasket may need to be replace. As it could be caused by a work seal, or gasket, or a loose plug.

The master cylinder contains the reservoir for the brake fluid. This is where you would add it on an 1990 Cutlass Supreme.
