If Your Transmission Doesn’t Have A Dipstick, Do You Still Need To Check The Fluid?

You’ve noticed an issue with your transmission, or you simply want to make sure the fluid is still at the correct level and looking good. But, you can’t seem to find the dipstick anywhere…what’s the deal? Cruise N' Cool Automotive, Diesel & Fleet Repair in Pompano Beach is here to help!

Increasingly, cars, trucks, and SUVs are coming equipped with sealed transmissions, meaning there is no easily accessible way to inspect or add fluid. In the old days, every automatic had a dipstick like the one used to check the engine oil, but that’s starting to become a thing of the past. Manufacturers like Ford and Mercedes have begun advertising no-service transmission fluid setups, meaning the fluid isn’t supposed to need servicing for the life of the vehicle. While the debate on changing the fluid in such vehicles is still controversial, the fact remains it is inconvenient to check or service. When leaks or other issues arise, checking the fluid may be necessary.

First, consult your owner’s manual. There’s a chance the dipstick is just well camouflaged, and you’re simply not seeing it. The manual will tell you how to check the transmission fluid, and if it’s even possible as a part of routine maintenance. If you have a sealed transmission, it’s probably better to let an expert handle it; doing it yourself could void the warranty, and may be difficult without proper equipment and knowledge.

If you have a sealed transmission and need your fluid inspected, our technicians have you covered. For the best transmission service shop in Pompano Beach, call or stop by Cruise N' Cool Automotive, Diesel & Fleet Repair today – we are here for all of your transmission repair and maintenance needs.
