The 1998 Chevy Malibu does not have a transmission dipstick. Instead there is a check plug located on the transaxle, near the pan, adjacent to the engine oil drain plug.
Note: the vehicle must be kept level when checking the Transmission Fluid level.
Place an oil container under the check plug and remove it. Observe the fluid as it drips into the pan, indicating correct fluid level. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the check hole. Double check to make sure the car is level. If no fluid drips from the check hole, some fluid should be added via the red cap. But add only a little at a time until the fluid is at the bottom of the check hole.
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 in a newer Malibu does not have a dipstick. It is meant to be left alone until it is time to have the vehicle serviced by the dealer or a licensed mechanic.
The 2004 Chevy Cavalier transmission dipstick will be on the left-hand side of the transmission. The transmission dipstick will have a bright yellow handle.
There isn't one. Don't you love it?
in 1996 Chevy started makeing sealed transmations on malibus meaning there is no dipstick. you have to have a profesional check the levels
the dipstick for the engine is right in front of it, has a yellow handle. there is no dipstick for the transmission.
I have a 2000 Malibu and it does not have a tranny dipstick. You have to check fluid under car, there is a check hole on the trans. It's a pain in the butt.
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.
The transmission dipstick on a 1998 Blazer should be located at the rear of the engine. It should not be near the oil dipstick.
There is no Tranny dipstick on 1996 and newer malibus
there is no dipstick, read owners manual you should find some info needed i had same question when i purchased mine it has a plug located, if facing car,near right side sorta at the bottom
it doesnt have a dipstick. the malibu's have a sealed transmission that shouldn't need service for up to 100,000 miles. there is a trans fluid cap under the throttle body and exhaust.
add it through the dipstick tube.
Doesn't have one.
Auto.? dipstick at rear of engine Std.? should be a plug at the side of transmission
It may not have one. Some GM transmissions are sealed for life.
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.
There is no didpstick. Chevrolet Malibu builders screwed us consumers. I hate the way they built these transmissions. Why couldn't they just add the darn dipstick like everyone else. It is so hard to check the transmission fluid. You have to have car jacked up and then make sure its leveled. Then you need to turn the carn on so
There should be a dipstick like the one for oil. Check with engine running.
There is no transmission dip stick. On the drivers side under the thermostat housing you have a red cap, that is your fill tube for the transmission. TJMAN DALLAS GA I'm not sure where it is located, but i know on alot of newer Chevy cars that there may not be one, because the transmission system is sealed.
It doesnt have one. Since about 1995 or so, most smaller transmissions have what is called a 'sealed' transmission. You will have to take it to a mechanic you trust to check it out or to the Chevy dealer. The easiest way to make sure it is correct is to take it to a Quick lube and have the transmission serviced.
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 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.
Pass side, back of motor.
