|Topic: Checking the Transmission Fluid on Your SUV|
transmission fluid in your SUV is hydraulic fluid located inside the
transmission which keeps all of the moving parts properly lubricated. It
is very important that this fluid be kept at the proper level to assure
that your transmission works properly. Low fluid level will cause
transmission failure and a costly repair bill. Transmission failure
while you are off the road will completely disable your SUV. Unless you
have a leak in the transmission fluid system someplace, you are not
likely to have a problem with this issue on your trips as long as the
fluid was at the proper level when you started out.
If you need to check the transmission fluid level, locate the transmission dip stick (top photo) and check the level according to the instructions in your owners manual. Most vehicles require that the engine be running to check the fluid level.
If you need to add fluid, use a small funnel and add small amounts of fluid to the little tiny tube where the dip stick was removed (be sure to check the proper adding procedures for your SUV in your owners manual). Keep adding fluid and then rechecking the level until the level comes up to the normal range.
