How to Check Transmission Fluid

Changing transmission fluid

 

Understanding how to check your transmission fluid in Gas City on a regular basis can help keep tabs on maintenance issues before they become serious. Your car’s transmission moves it forward, meaning it’s important to stay up to date on routine maintenance because of how important this part is. Do you know how to check transmission fluid? How often do you check your transmission fluid? We’ve got answers to that and more in this guide from Greg Hubler Buick GMC, your service team.

 

 

How Often Do You Check Your Transmission Fluid?

You should check the main fluid levels of your car each month. This means your transmission fluid, your power steering fluid, and your engine oil. As always, you can consult your owner’s manual for a more specific maintenance schedule particular to your car.

Checking Transmission Fluid: Step-by-Step Guide 

All you have to do to check your Hartford City vehicle’s transmission fluid is follow these steps:

  1. Turn the engine on for a few minutes, because your engine needs to be warmed up to get a proper read. Make sure your car is in park before getting out and opening the hood.
  2. Find the transmission fluid dipstick. Check your owner’s manual if you’re having difficulty.
  3. Remove the dipstick and touch the fluid. It should be almost clear with a little pink in it. If it looks dirty or gives off a burnt smell, it’s time for service.
  4. Wipe the dipstick off with a rag. Put it back in the vehicle, pull it out again, and check the level. If it’s less than “Full,” you’ll need to add more.
  5. Use a funnel to bring the fluid level up to where it should be, but don’t overfill it.

Checking the Fluid in a Sealed Transmission 

If there’s no dipstick, your car is probably equipped with a sealed transmission. Our advice on how to check transmission fluid without a dipstick is: just don’t, because you might damage the transmission. We can take care of that for you.
