You should never add transmission fluid to a Chevrolet 350 engine. You can add transmission fluid to the transmission through the transmission dipstick holder.
you will have to have it towed to a shop to have the trans flushed; do not drive it!!
NO!!!! do not do this, oil is oil, transmission fluid is transmission fluid, and antifreeze is antifreeze, do not mix any of these, it can perminately damage your engine.
If you mean "in" the engine, as in "instead of motor oil," the answer's no. I guess you could probably put it on the engine, if you can explain why you'd want to.
to the transmission, not the engine
No. Transmission fluid lubricates the transmission. Coolant is used by the radiator to cool the engine.
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.
Either someone put transmission fluid in the oil filler or the transmission fluid drain plug was mistakenly opened instead of the engine oil. In other words, transmission fluid is red and engine oil should be amber to black in colour. Note some automobiles use red fluid for power steering as well but usually don't have a drain plug for that.
Transmission fluid doesn't go into the engine.
The Honda Rincon uses engine oil as transmission fluid so when you change your engine oil or check your engine oil level you are also changing or checking the transmission fluid at the same time.
You should never use transmission fluid in a radiator.You can use water without antifreeze in a radiator, but if the engine gets below 32 F (0 C) the water will freeze and severely damage the engine.
The 1997 Chevrolet express 7.4 liter engine should never have transmission fluid point into it. The engine holds 6.4 quarts of motor oil. The transmission holds nine quarts of transmission fluid.
transmission fluid is getting into engine in our 1984 ford f 150
It calls for transmission fluid =]
Well, if you only used a different grade of oil, like 10W-30 instead of 5W-30, everything should be fine 'til the next oil change. If you put the wrong type of transmission fluid in your transmission, like Dexron/Mercon instead of Chrysler ATF+4, get the fluid changed and transmission flushed immediately; incorrect transmission fluid type can ruin your transmission. If you put oil in your transmission, or transmission fluid in your brake fluid, or brake fluid in your power steering pump or engine (or any other variation of fluid confusion that may exist), you may be in for some costly repairs. Get the suspect system flushed and fluid changed as soon as possible.
Just like with engine oil, transmission fluid is easy to check. There is a dipstick similar to that used to check engine oil levels. It is usually farther back on the engine. Pull it out and check the levels of the transmission fluid.
Your manual transmission does not have to have fluid in it in order to start the engine. Theoretically you can start the engine with the transmission out of the vehicle totally. That being said.... Its not a good idea to start the engine if there is no fluid in the transmission just in case someone tries to move the vehicle by putting it in gear. You do not want to drive the vehicle with no fluid in the trans.
im not sure if it is the same for an automatic transmission, but for a manual, it should be under the hood, in the engine bay. when you open the hood, you are standing in front of the engine, look behind the engine, where the engine joins with the transmission, on the left side... that is if you are standing in front of the car, look on the left side of the transmission, there should be a 12 inch dip-stick that goes into the transmission housing. this is where you can check the fluid level, or add fluid. if you change the fluid, you refill the transmission from here as well
Do you need the engine to be running when adding transmission fluid to a 1995 ford aerostar
Its the transmission dip stick tube is how you add transmission fluid.
If the engine dies when you shift to reverse (or any gear), then it could be low on transmission fluid. If this is the case, do not drive it or you could destroy your transmission, which is a very expensive repair. Get the transmission fluid problem (possibly leaking seals) fixed instead.
There should be two dipsticks under the hood on a Malibu. One will be plainly marked "OIL" or "ENGINE OIL." The other one is your transmission fluid. This is assuming your Malibu has automatic transmission. If your Malibu has a manual transmission (stick shift), then there is no dipstick for transmission fluid -- manual trannies get lubrication from the engine oil.
Transmission fluid can be poured through the engine compartment on a Honda Accord. There is a dipstick and reservoir where the fluid can safely be placed.
The fluid is drained by removing the transmission pan.
