that's a really good question.......... so far i don't know if its the aproved way but it can be poured down the transmission dipstick tube.... a slow process but it does work.
Yes that is the recommended way to do it, you use a funnel while the vehicle is running and in park, pull the dipstick out of the tube which is located usually above the air filter box on the driver side of the engine near the back of the motor. (GREY COLOR HANDLE USUALLY)
Check the fluid level and add to the estimated amount, if it is at the add mark usually is good to add 1/2 quart to the transmission. Once done, you either stick the dipstick back in and ram it in the hole carefully to help push the fluid down the tube into the tranny, roughly 10-15 times quickly or you can leave the dipstick out and have to wait roughly 3-5 minutes before getting an accurate reading of the fluid level.
Make sure to take multiple readings cause the first one isn't always the correct one, least 3-5 times.
Hope this helps.
Pontiac Trans Sport was created in 1990.
No, do not mix trans and brake fluids. The trans is dextron and the brake fluid is dot3.
If an automatic transmission ,broken bands in the tranny.
Pontiac does not make a transmission dipstick, unless the newer ones have them. Actually, the early models did. My '96 had one. Later models did not. The trans fluid is checked via a plug in the side of the trans-axle.
your vehicle does not have a dipstick tube,your trans is a sealed unit and cannot have fluid added to it.the only way to check your fluid level is at the transmission itself.there is a plug on the passenger side top area of your trans case
Not very likely, as there is no such thing as a 2005 Pontiac Trans Am.
Harley Sport-Trans Fluid if you can find it. I use it in mine religiously. Works great!
There is a trans dip stick on the back side of the engine. This is where you add fluid also. GoodluckJOe
The brake system uses brake fluid and the trans uses trans fluid.
NV 3500 trans..................Synchromesh transmission fluid or equivalent NV 4500 trans..................Syn-torq synthetic transmission fluid or equivalent ZF S6-650 trans...............Trans-Synd synthetic transmission fluid or equivalent
it doesnt have adip stick it has a bolt in the side of trans better take to dealer
most likely dextron three, but GM prints the fluid type on the dipstick on most cars, you have to look close
transmission fluid is uaually added through the trans dipstick tube.
I do believe that if it's a sealed transmission then you have to pull the check plug from the trans to check it its just like a fill plug believe its on the left side of trans.
Most of the ATF will remain in the trans cooler and lines unless you have the transmission force flushed by a trans shop.
With the transmission in park, and the engine running. Remove the dipstick wipe and dip again then read. It will show fluid if its cold or warm. (Just a tip use dexron 3 type trans fluid.)
NO no, you will ruine trans.
there probably isn't one. Pontiac discontinued trans dipsticks in models earlier than yours. You have to check the fluid at the fill plug on the trans itself.
DEXRON auto trans fluid
how do i fill my trans fluid in 1996 nissan 200sx 1.6 l manuel trans
Be very careful NOT to put trans fluid in an engine ! - It goes down the tube that holds trans dipstick, into the transmission.
