    Seeing that there was not Dip Stick. Where on the car could it be replaced? And if so would anyone have a picture to help provide me?


    Thank you!

    It's a sealed unit, but if you crawl under the car towards the transmission pan area you'll see a bolt on the side of the pan (passenger side). That's the only place you can fill the fluid up.

    Not exactly a how-2 on topping off the transmission but close enough.

    I just used a hand siphon pump and filled my transmission when it was low. What I did was, jacked the car up and send the one end of the siphon hose into the bolt hole then lowered the jack down. Then I kept the transmission fluid bottle high and siphoned it down to the pan.

    If you go to a transmission shop and tell them that its a fill untill tranny they have a seringe type tool that pumps it in.. fill.. unitill! lol.. this is the dumbest thing ! they should have left the dipstick!... I found this out the hard way. what an ordeal.. the mech ended up fileing down the tip on an air hose threading it into the hole and dumping the fluid in!
