This is what I do. I have a 1998 Malibu that has a red Transmission Fluid cap that is visible (kneeling down)to the left of the inside of the battery straight to the back. If you have small arms you can reach and unscrew the cap, but it has to be cold. I then use a funnel that is about 18 inches long and insert it from the top while guiding the bottom of the funnel with my other hand. My funnel does not go directly in, but I anchor it where the fluid still flows in. I have put up to 3 gallons in and have had no problems. I usually add fluid when the car starts to kick, like jump starting.Hope it helps!AnswerThe 2000 and several other years of this vehicle have no transmission dipstick because they use a sealed transmission. The actual process for checking the trans fluid is elusive as I have been searching for days. The popular answer is that you need the vehicle engine and transmission at operating temperature, on a level surface, and then you pull a small plug (location in dispute) near the right axel shaft and watch for a small amount of fluid to run out. If none does, then it is low. Best I can come up with so far.
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
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.
the dipstick for the engine is right in front of it, has a yellow handle. there is no dipstick for the transmission.
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.
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.
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
There is no Tranny dipstick on 1996 and newer malibus
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.
The transmission dipstick on a 1998 Blazer should be located at the rear of the engine. It should not be near the oil dipstick.
add it through the dipstick tube.
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
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.
Doesn't have one.
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.
Assuming you have a automatic transmission the dipstick should be located under the hood, behind the engine, on the passenger side.
There should be a dipstick like the one for oil. Check with engine running.
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.
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.
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.
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.
