Where do you check the transmission level on a 1995 Polaris 425 Magnum. How do you add fluid?


on any vehicle with an automatic transmission, there are two dip sticks. One to measure oil level, and the other transmission fluid level( typically labled 'check with engine running in park'). To add transmission fluid requires a funnel to introduce fluid via the dip-stick tube.

If you have a manual transmission, then you don't need transmission fluid, you need gear oil, which can be measured at the transmission and added at the same port.

Transmission slipping on 03 GMC Envoy. what does iy mean when trans fluid measure high on dip stick?


Two things: #1 someone has overfilled it by mistake thinking they were putting oil in the engine. Yes I have seen this.
#2 The transmission cooler in the radiator could be leaking antifreeze into the transmission through the cooling line raising the fluid level. I would look for milk shake foam on the dip stick and make sure you check trans in park and not neutral.

How to check the oil. The dip stick has no method of measuring other than a small white knob on the end.


Done with scanner and it reads out oil level in mm. If oil level low, a warning with show on cluster.

Most modern vehicles measure oil level this way....as well as the transmission.

The Dip Stick tube is only for sucking out the oil. This is known as 'Top Side Evacuation'.

Some DIY types collect and measure the drained oil and refill with same amount.

How difficult is it to change the oil pan on a 1997 gmc jimmy 4x4?


4WD To Remove:
  1. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Oil level indicator
    • Front differential assembly
    • Starter
    • Transmission cover
    • Oil pan drain plug and drain the engine oil into a suitable container
    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Remote oil filter hose clip bolt on oil pan
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Access plugs for oil pan rear nuts
    • Transmission to oil pan bolts
    • Oil pan nuts and bolts gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

      NOTE: The low oil level sensor is not reusable.
    • Remove and discard the engine oil level sensor (if applicable) gm_truck_43_ol-pn_blts.gif

    • The oil pan
    • The oil pan gasket
  2. Discard the oil pan gasket.
  3. Clean all sealing surfaces on the engine and the oil pan.
To Install:
Note: Whenever the transmission and the engine oil pan are removed from the engine at the same time install the transmission before the oil pan. This is to allow for the proper oil pan alignment. Failure to achieve the correct oil pan alignment can result in transmission failure.
  1. Apply a 0.197 inch (5 mm) wide and 1.0 inch (25 mm) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the engine front cover to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ahsv_loc_f.gif

    gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ahsv_loc_r.gif

  2. Apply a 0.197 inch (5 mm) wide and 1.0 inch (25 mm) long bead of adhesive GM P/N 12346141 (Canadian P/N 10953433) or equivalent to both the right and left sides of the crankshaft rear oil seal housing to engine block junction at the oil pan sealing surfaces. Note: Always install a new oil pan gasket. The oil pan gasket and oil pan must be installed and the fasteners tightened while the adhesive is still wet to the touch.
  3. Install the new oil pan gasket into the groove in the oil pan. Note: The oil pan alignment must always be flush or forward no more than 0.011 inch (0.3mm) from the rear face of the engine block.
  4. Install or connect the following:
    • The oil pan onto the engine block
      1. Press the oil pan gasket into the grooves of the engine front cover and crankshaft rear oil seal housing
      2. Slide the oil pan back against a suitable straight edge
    • The oil pan bolts and nuts, but do not tighten
  5. Measure the pan-to-transmission housing clearance using a feeler gage and a straight edge. gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trnz_clrc.gif

    • Use a feeler gage to check the clearance between the oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points
      1. If the clearance exceeds 0.011 inch 0.3mm) at any of the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points (A), then repeat the step until the oil pan-to-transmission housing clearance is within the specification
      2. The oil pan must always be forward of the rear face of the engine block
    gm_truck_43_ol-pn_trq-sqc.gif

  6. Tighten the oil pan bolts and nuts in sequence
    • Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm).
  7. Measure the clearance between the 3 oil pan-to-transmission housing measurement points in order to ensure proper alignment.
  8. Install or connect the following:
    • A new oil pan drain plug seal (O-ring) onto the oil pan drain plug
    • Oil pan drain plug into the oil pan
      1. Torque to: 18 ft lb (25 Nm)
      NOTE: The low oil level sensor is not reusable.
      gm_truck_43_ol-pn_ol-lvl-snsr.gif

    • New low oil level sensor
      1. Torque to: 115 in lb (13 Nm)
    • Transmission to oil pan bolts.
      1. Torque to: 35 ft lb (47 Nm)
    • Access plugs for the oil pan rear nuts
    • Starter wire harness bracket stud
    • Transmission oil cooler pipes (if equipped)
    • Remote oil filter pipe adapter
    • Oil filter hose clip bolt to the oil pan
    • Transmission cover and bolts.
    • Starter motor
    • Front differential assembly
    • Oil level indicator
  9. Fill the engine with oil.
  10. Connect the negative battery cable.
