For several years now, some of the car manufactures have done away with installing a transmission dipstick or filler tube.If you own a late model Ford Explorer of Ranger, some BMW.s Cadillac Catera, or Isuzu Rodeo, the vehicle needs to be up on a lift, running to check the fluid level. Some Chrysler and Mercedes have the dip stick tube, but you have to purchase the dipstick as a separate tool.
So, if you go to check the fluid level on your transmission and can’t find the dipstick, you’re not crazy. You may not have one. At Summit Transmissions and Auto Care, we have the knowledge and tools to check these transmissions out. Give us a call, and we can schedule an appointment to do a free transmission check.
