Chevy Malibu Transmission Fluid Level

Q. Hi Vincent, I have a 2001 Chevy Malibu automatic transmission and can't seem to find the transmission dip stick. I was told that it did not have one. The seal is leaking so how do I know how much fluid to replace until I can get it repaired?


Chevy Malibu Transmission Fluid Level

A. There is a red fill cap on the transmission bell housing under the brake master cylinder. You'll have to look real hard to see it. There is also a bolt on the passenger side of the transmission that you remove to check the level. Transmission must be warm and the engine running. You add fluid until it runs out the bolt hole. Typical GM engineering. Just check the owners manual. It should tell you something about this.
