Hey guys, I"m a tiny embarrassed to ask this but have you guys seen the tranny fluid dipstick almost everywhere on a 3.5? Im in search of this thing and also I dont view it anywhere, it doesnt exist!thanx

There is no dipstick ~ above this transmission. Over there is a check plug on the next pan. The liquid does not have to be checked unless there is a problem.

Looks favor it"s comparable design to the German auto tranny through 100K fabricated fluid. Still i hated when there is no dipstick and when you do fill it, it will have to be pumped in v the engine running at certain temperature til overflow. I am very familiar v this type of architecture as I simply serviced my 5 series last Christmas. What a pains to fill it without the dipstick!

thanx for the input guys. Car are getting more complicated to work-related on. My amanti is additionally a pita. I tell you once i had actually my old jeep, i use to love going under the hood on that thing. Additionally on my sorento ns couldnt uncover the other 3 spark plugs, i know there ago there somewhere however ill permit someone else worry around that. Lol
Several years back there was a report in the SAE journal around transmission failures. GM, Toyota and some transmission manufactures reported the the most common reason for failures to be improper servicing. The easiest means to mitigate these failures to be to make it harder for untrained or ill fitted owners and repair shops to service transmissions.

Yeah, that make sense, but for cars like BMW & Mercedes, the organization dept make more money 보다 sales because of the "un-user friendly" mechanical designs.

I agree through them. Simply wait it rotates a V8 Borrego comes in slipping and also the ZF trans has red fluid in it. Ns hope somebody has deep pockets, due to the fact that there is no means Kia is spanning that.

Don"t the V6"s in the Sorento sit prefer a conventional engine? i think the Sedona"s have actually a transverse engine and also the plugs room a PITA. If friend can gain 3plugs on the Sorie, i think(Imho), girlfriend should have the ability to get the other three.
