well i think it is time to check the auto transmission fluid but i have no dipstick. somewhere i was told there is a plug that can be removed to check the fluid level. where is this at? if i’m standing under the car facing the front looking up at the transmission. where do i look? also i was at the dealer and they told me it was time to flush the thing. so maybe i should drop the pan and change the filter and refill. so where do i refill it, the same place you check it at? how much fluid does it take for a filter change?

also while i’m doing this what part number should i look for the change the seals on the transmission where the axles go into it? i looked on rock auto but could not find them. and i don’t exactly know on advanced auto site if they are this part or not maybe someone can help me out here Part No. 3543

Per p. 6-6 of the manual, if your vehicle is driven under severe conditions (hilly or mountainous terrain, high temperatures, hauling, etc), then the transmission should be serviced every 50,000 miles. Otherwise, the recommended service interval is 100,000 miles.

If I can answer any further questions, I’m happy to do so!

well I got the trans fluid changed I found the fluid level check port on the side where coby said and the fill was on top of the transmission. a black plastid plug that I cold hand loosen. that was an easy job. but one problem came up that others may want to watch for was the new gasket was not the same as what came out and for a few days I had a small leak. I found it because my cars don’t leak and when I had the car out of the parking spot I noticed the spot. so I tightened the bolts. when I installed the pan I figured I had them all tight enough but not so. so watch out for that. I had to tighten up more than I would have guessed they needed to be. I just placed a card board under the car and kept an eye on it for a few weeks to make sure I got it. it is good now.

again thanks coby 7 for all your help. and others that contributed to the problem.
