No, manual transmissions on most if not all cars do not have dipsticks. Check the side of the transmission. In most manual transmissions there are two drain type plugs that can be screwed out. The bottom plug drains all oil. The plug that is part way up the side of the transmission is the fill level plug. With the engine OFF! Pull the plug, put your finger in the hole and see if there is any oil below the level of the plug hole. Oil SHOULD come to the bottom of the hole. If you can't feel any oil with your finger add more.

If it is an A/T it is located rear of engine near firewall. If it is manual, there is no dipstick. The level is checked under the car on the upper side of the transmission where you will find a plug.

If it is a manual transmission, it has none. If it is Auto, look around some more and you will find it. Clue, Owner's manual! if you have the 2.4L T engine it does not have a dip stick

The transmission dipstick on a 1998 Blazer should be located at the rear of the engine. It should not be near the oil dipstick.

The manual transmission don't have a dip stick. It has a plug in the side of it that you remove and check the fluid level.

Assuming you have a automatic transmission the dipstick should be located under the hood, behind the engine, on the passenger side.

Assuming you have an automatic transmission the dipstick is located under the hood on the passenger side in back of the engine, close to the firewall.

200 Chevy Malibu has a sealed system, so it does not have a dipstick to check the transmission fluid. If there are issues, one has to check the fluid while the car is running.

The transmission dipstick, On a 2008 Chevy cobalt, can be found at the back of the engine compartment, near the center. The dipstick handle will be bright yellow.

If it is a manual, YOU DONT HAVE ONE. Because you dont need to check the tranny fluid unless you have a leak, at which time you should be on your way to a mechanic

Generally the transmission dipstick is on the backside of the engine near the firewall.

You can check the fluid in your 1995 Chevy Cavalier transmission with the transmission dipstick. The transmission dipstick will be on the left-hand side of the transmission and have a bright yellow handle.

A 1996-2014 Chevy Express Van 1500 transmission dipstick/tube and the engine oil dipstick/tube are both located under the hood on the passenger side. The engine oil dipstick should have a yellow handle. The trans dipstick is located next to the engine oil dipstick.

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.

Is it a manual transmission or and automatic? Need to know. Auto the dipstick is to the back of the engine looking to the passenger side. Sometimes it will be a Red knob or Black. Manual trans don't have a dipstick just a plug on the side of the trans, about the middle of the trans half way up.

As you are looking under the hood, it is back by the firewall on the left side

If you mean, do they make the Chevy Colorado with a manual transmission, the answer is yes; the standard transmission in a base Colorado is a 5-speed manual.

User Avatar

If this is an automatic, it would be in view on one side or the other close to the firewall. If this is a stick or manual transmission you don't have a dip stick.

It doesn't have a dipstick for the automatic transmission.

The transmission has a very small dipstick that is yellow located between the transmission mount and transmission on the side closest to the radiator. There is a 13mm bolt that holds the dipstick in place. Do not remove any bolts from the top of the transmission or you can end up having to have the transmission fixed.

You can check your automatic transmission fluid in your 1992 Chevy Cavalier with the transmission dipstick. The dipstick will have marks that indicate whether it is full or low one quart.
