Where do you find the transmission fluid stick in your 1996 Chevy Lumina Minivan to check the fluid level?
I found a transmission dip stick on the top right of the engine - up under the hood between the firewall and the engine - you need good light and I've yet to figure out how to fill the fluid, since the dipstick is horizontal and normally it's how you fill the fluid.
So, we're a step closer.
If a 1990 Chevy Lumina engine sounds like it wants to go but the car will not or is slow to go what could be the problem?
TRANSMISSION!!!!!!!!, TRANSMISSION. First check the level of transmission fluid and if there is fluid in there ( to check fluid warm up engine and check the level with the transmission in PARK and the engine must be running) smell the fluid if it has a burnt smell and is dark then you may have fried your transmission. A transmission repair can be expensive so please get at least three repair quotes. DEAD tranny man........
When stopped at stop sign or stop light you step on the gas pedal of your 95 Chevy lumina and it sounds like it is reving up and then when the speddometer reches 20 it runs fine what's wrong?

The amount of transmission fluid that is needed after a filter change in a minivan will vary depending on the model and type of van. Usually, one can add three quarts, then start the van and check the levels to see if more is needed. Sometimes it can take up to 5 quarts to get the levels where they should be.
