where to fill AOD tranny

Recommended Posts

I had rigged up a funnel earlier to put ATF in through the dipstick tube, but there has to be a better way to fill the tranny, I see no caps or anything under the hood, is there a fill hole on the side of the tranny that i'm not seeing?

You guys are seeing correctly. Every automatic I have ever worked on is filled through the dipstick hole. (even M1 tanks!) There is probably something somewhere that has a seperate fill hole, but I have not found it yet.

They have to be filled through the dipstick tube. You can buy a funnel with a long tube that goes into the dipstick tube perfectly. Thats the proper way

Its not a whole lot to complain about...

 

Ever Work on a Mercedes Benz trans?

 

On top of the almost $10 per Liter Trans Fluid, its even a SMALLER trans tube.

 

And another example of Precision German Enga-Neering, they didn't even put in a dipstick to check the trans fluid. Instead the put a sticker there that says "If you need to service your transmission, it only can be done at the dealership blah blah blah..." :wacko:

In Germany they try very hard to make you take your car to a shop for work. Parts stores are almost non-existant, any modification from stock (I mean any mod, even a different size tire/rim combo) requires a trip to an inspection station and an anotation on the registration. You may not work on your car on Sunday. (I was informed of this by a very large Polizei Officer one Sunday morning) And don't even think about washing your car in your driveway; you must take it to a carwash. (The treehuggers are to blame for that law) I hear people complain about inspections on here alot, but you have not been through anything like what they go through. I spent a lot of years in Germany and am always glad to be back in the good old USA.
