1. Check the Fluid Level 20-Apr-2016
The fluid in an automatic transmission operates the clutches, provides cooling and lubrication, and even drives the vehicle. So few things are more important than proper fluid operating level for keeping the transmission working. Most automatic transmissions have a dipstick for checking the fluid level. If you're not sure where yours is or how to check the transmission fluid level, refer to your owners manual, or go to your local ATRA-member repair center: They'll be happy to show you.
