Where is automatic transmission drain plug on 1999 vw jetta?
Many automatic transmission do not have drain plugs. You drain the ATF by removing the transmission fluid pan. If you are changing the ATF, you should pull the pan anyway, to replace the ATF filter. You will also need a new pan gasket. If there is an ATF drain plug, it will be located in the transmission fluid pan, on the bottom of the transmission.

Where is the trans dip in a 2004 Cavalier?
If it is an automatic, there isn't one. As stupid as it seems, the oil level is checked with a level plug located in the side of the transaxle that is only accessible when the car is on a hoist. The car must be level, transmission warm and on a level surface (hoist) when removing the plug to check. The transmission is filled by removing the vent located on the top of the transmission.
How do you remove a transmission from a 92 Chevrolet Lumina Euro Sport?
There are mant steps to removing this transmission, but the engine needs to be supported and the sub-frame removed. The transmission has to be removed from the bottom. I work at a transmission shop and have done these many times. If you don't do this all the time, i suggest taking it to a professional, can be dangerous if not knowing what you are doing.

Asked in Transmission Fluid
How do you check the transmission fluid?
If the car is an automatic, there should be a dipstick for the tranny fluid that will be labeled, "use automatic transmission fluid only". If the car is a standard then you have to get under the car and pull the drain plug and check the level there, and standard cars don't use transmission fluid, they use 902w gear oil. May I add, that you don't' check a manual transmission level by removing the drain plug. You check it by removing the fill plug. Also not all manual transmissions use the same lube. Some do indeed use automatic transmission fluid. Read you owner's manual. Also there are some A/T that don't have a place to check the fluid level. They are sealed for life transmissions.

How do you add transmission fluid to a 2001 alero?
If it is an automatic there is a small red cap on the transmission itself under where the air filter box is. You will need a long funnel to not spill. You can check the level by running the engine and removing a small plug under the transmission. If the fluid is trickling out it is full, if it is pouring it is overfilled.

Is it easiest to replace the engine on a 1992 Acura Vigor 2.5 automatic with or without removing the transmission at the same time?
You are better taking off the engine with the transmission together, I have a 93' Vigor and changed the transmission and it pretty hard, there many bolts that are hard to get; if you need to changed your engine, it will be much easier taking the transmission off while the engine is off the vehicle..

Asked in Honda Passport
Does a 1998 Honda Passport have a automatic transmission filter?
Yes it has a filter. But it is located inside the transmission and may not be replaceable without removing the transmission and breaking it apart. If so, change the fluid and forget the filter. Your owner's manual will provide this information, or you can contact a Honda dealer to see if this vehicle has a replaceable filter. Some do and some don't.
Asked in Transmission Fluid, Ford Ranger
How do you change the Transmission fluid on a 1999 Ford Ranger automatic transmission?
Most of the automatic transmissions of this vintage (cars or pickups) on US-made vehicles that I have seen are lacking a transmission drain plug, which unfortunately makes changing the transmission fluid a potentially messy proposition. You can start by removing a few of the bolts holding the transmission fluid pan to the underside of the transmission, which will likely allow some of the fluid to drain out. While carefully holding the pan in place, remove the rest of the bolts, and remove the pan. It may be stuck to the transmission pan gasket. You can carefully pry the pan off, but be careful not to gouge the transmission housing, or bend the transmission pan. Once the pan is removed, there will be a transmission filter that should be replaced also. Don't forget a new transmission pan gasket. Make sure that all the old gasket has been carefully removed from the transmission housing and/or the transmission pan. Oftentimes when purchasing a new transmission filter, it will come with a transmission pan gasket- but be sure. One final note- removing the pan/draining the fluid will not remove the old fluid which is still in the torque converter. To do this, you'll need to have the transmission flushed by a transmission shop. It can be done by a DIY'er, but involves removing a line from the transmission cooler, and can get a little complex for the average in-front-of-the-garage-on-a-Saturday-afternoon-type repair. If your transmission has 100,000 miles on it and has never been flushed, flushing it may do more harm than good, as sediments can be dislodged within the transmission that could get lodged in the small orfices in various valves within the transmission.

Asked in GMC Sierra
Can you change a rear seal on a GMC Sierra and somehow mess up the transmission?
I suppose it is very possible to cause an unintended problem with the transmission while replacing the rear seal as it involves either removing the transmission, or at least pulling it back. If its an automatic transmission, you would have to remove the torque converter and flex-plate. If something doesnt get properly torqued to specs, then Yes you could cause a huge problem. You also run the risk of damaging the drive-line, slip yoke, Universal joints, etc.... Not the best job for a first timer to do in my opinion.
