It should be on the drivers side and it looks like the oil dipstick. Usually the top of the handle is shaped like a " T ". Most of the time it will be yellow and say trans on it. It may be lower than the oil dipstick. Good luck.

on most cars that i have serviced the trans. if the trans has a dipstick tube. you can fill it from there. look for a plug that has a square hole (like a 1/2" ratchet would fit into) or the plug maybe a square head or even a bolt shaped plug. the drain could be on the side of the trans or the bottom. get yourself a Haynes manual #87020 at your local auto parts store or online

Where is the transmission drain plug located in a 2007 saturn ion


There is some sealed units with no drain or fill. Or it could be on the driver side bottem of the transmission but is not accessable because it is too close to the frame. Hope you find it and its accessable.

I want to look and change my trnsmission fluid on


Take the driver's side tire off and look straight over the rotor to the trans and there's a plug bolt that needs a hex socket to get it out.

Dealer says it uses Dextron III trans fluid, not gear oil or motor oil like in some smaller cars.

Location of drain plug, fill plug and correct oil level plug for 5 speed manual transmission


I don't know if there is a fill plug. I just use the level plug located on driver's side right above the inner CV joint of the half-shaft (axle) to fill it. A piece of flexible tubing connected to a funnel works well. The drain plug is fairly near the center of the bottom of the gearbox housing (behind the bell housing). The level plug has a 24mm, fairly flat, hex head, and the drain plug is a recessed plug with a 3/8" (?) square hole (for a socket handle).
