i just got some transmission fluid for my chevy blazer (99) and i need to
add just a little bit to the tranny. but where the hell do i put the fluid
at? i read the manual but it doesnt tell you where it is to do so, only the
dip stick. i was thinking about dropping some down the dip stick but i
figured someone here would know where to dump it. Thanks for you help
Since you "don't know Jack. . . ." be careful when you add transmission
fluid. They sell it in quarts but you shouldn't need more than a pint.
Don't overfill it! If it needs more than a pint, I'd suggest you take it to
a shop for a filter/fluid change. Tell them to check for a leak.
Well I was going add this transmission additive stuff in there. Supposed to
help your tranny switch better. Is this true? or should I just put some ATF
fluid in it instead. it's like 12 oz worh of the stuff
OK -- - if you're having transmission problems, there is no additive that
will fix it. Don't use additives. If you're just low on fluid, add some
transmission fluid. Don't put anything else in there! Don't use additives.
If your transmission hasn't been serviced, take it to a shop and have the
filter and fluid changed. Don't go for one of those gimmicks where they
pump out the old while they pump in the new either. Some guys may offer
differing advice, but you said you "don't know Jack. . ." Transmissions are
complicated and you simply can't fix one with an additive.
I know that, I just saw it at a store and figured what the hell. I'm one of
those "I know enough to be dangerous" people. I'll just add the fluid in.
Prolly gonna get a filter and fluid change anyway. I'll just get it
changed, and if they see something wrong, they'll fix it. Thanks for the
Hey Doc, what I know about transmission would maybe fill a thimble but I
thought transmissions were supposed to be checked while in drive on level
ground. At least that's what I was told 20 years ago. Have things changed
or have I been in error for the last 20?
