Posted by Anonymous on
The oldest and one of the top world wide questions.
ever. capacities, covered in the oper or fsm books.
but , you never said what transmission is there.
a/t box with ATF fluid,
m/t box with gear lube. its a fluid too.
transfer case? it too is a transmission, if have 4wd,. do you?
ill not guess, toss coin land on slush pump. a/t
the A/t is like sponge, if full now, (is it?) then what comes out
is what goes in,
easy answer, and dead accurate.
what your sponge leaks out , no man on earth can guess.
for the A/t there are 3 numbers
drain only, like 3 quarts, but if over night more. see?
total overhual, dry clutch and box volumes
or say dry valve body and pan, but clutch is full.
also many cars with 4wd, the main box hold more fluid.
so....... (due to longer extension housings, etc)

or log in to alldata.com and read. its tall there.. 24./7

What does your owners manual tell you .

There is no dipstick on your auto trans. Checking it is a real PITA The trans pan has 2 plugs in it. The one on the very bottom is the drain. The one in the corner, up higher in a recess is the check/fill plug. To check, the engine must be warm and running, tranny in P. Remove the plug and fluid should dribble out. If it doesn't it's low, fill until it dribbles out, while engine is running. Obviously the truck must be on a lift or up on jackstands.

SOURCE: How to check transmission fluid
Easier done on a lift, but you need to start the vehicle and let it warm up and then remove the fill plug not yhr drain plug, (with the vehicle running) the plug will be found on the transmission pan but it is NOT the one on the very bottom of the pan, there is another plug up in the corner of the pan on the passenger side. Remove this plug carefully, for the fluid will be warm to hot, if a little runs out of the hole your ok, if nothing comes out with the plug completely removed you need to add a little at a time thru this hole until it runs back out. DO NOT SHUT THE ENGINE OFF WITH THIS PLUG OUT, fluid will run out if you do.
To get fluid in the hole, attach a small hose to a filler top off of a gear oil bottle and put that top on your tranny fluid bottle, turn it upside and squeeze the fluid in using the hose to get it into the pan. If you have a fluid pump it would be better but if not this will work.

Lee2fixit doesn't know what he talks about on 99 Rodeos.
There is no dipstick tube - there are two access holes on the side of the transmission. The bottom one is to drain it out. The top one is to fill it back up. It is full when the fluid comes up to the bottom of the top hole.
Or you can take it to a dealer or service center to have it done.

under the truck you will see the large trans fluid pan. there are two 3/4 inch bolts. one recessed about 2 inches and one flush with the bottom of the pan. The recessed one is the fill tube and the non recessed one is the drain. You will need a pump of some sort to pump the fluid in the fill tube until it starts draining out. I think if you start the truck the fluid will lower and you can put more fluid in until it drains again. I dont know yet what kind of fluid to use.

SOURCE: Transmission fluids
If you have the 4 speed 4L30-E..........9.2 quarts (automatic)
And, if you have a manual:
Manual Transmission, W/ BW 5-SPD..........4.4 pints
Manual Transmission, W/O BW 5-SPD..........6.3 pints
Type of fluid is dextron or mercon III, you have to pump it in from the bottom.
Please don't forget to rate!!!!
