Some fill from the top through the dipstick tube, others from the side of the transmission. IT is also important to get the correct transmission fluid otherwise you risk an expensive repair or replacement.
Manual transmissions can accept a variety of fluids: regular motor oil, automatic transmission fluid or heavyweight hypoid gear oil.
1 Answer. Putting transmission fluid into your engine shouldn`t have hurt anything, and as you`ve found out, may help it a little by cleaning stuff out. Obviously, it`s not necessarily a good thing, especially considering if you have too much fluid in the crankcase.
If you have an inline engine, look behind your oil dipstick toward your windshield to locate the transmission fluid dipstick. If you have a front-wheel drive, look to the right of your oil dipstick. The transmission fluid dipstick is usually close to your car`s battery.
Insert long funnel into automatic transmission fluid dipstick hole. Carefully add automatic transmission fluid in small increments and recheck level each time until fluid level reaches “warm” line. CAUTION: DO NOT OVERFILL OR SPILL AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID ON HOT ENGINE PARTS!
What Happens If I Use Engine Oil In The Transmission System? There should be little to no damage in most cases if you accidentally add engine oil to your transmission. Just perform a fluid flush and drain the oil as soon as you can.
Identify the consistency and smell of the leaking fluid. Transmission fluid is a slick liquid that`s oily to the touch, much like engine oil or brake fluid. It usually smells similar to petroleum. If the transmission fluid needs to be changed, it will smell burnt.
Usually, you should not have to add transmission fluid. If the level is down significantly below the “Add” or “Cold” line, you probably have a system leak and should take the car to your mechanic to have your car inspected for leaks by a technician.
Automatic: Every 60,000 to 100,000 miles
If you drive manual, most manufacturers will recommend changing your transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles. If you have automatic, you can typically boost that range up to 60,000 to 100,000 miles. There`s no harm in changing your fluid early.

Dont know what type of oil to use – Toro Power Lawn Mower
Put straight 30 weight motor oil in it. Not 10W30 or any multi-viscosity oil. Straight 30 weight motor oil. If you’re doing a complete oil change, then you may want to use Synthetic 30 weight, which will last longer between oil changes and also make your engine last longer (but it costs more too). Best of luck to you.James
What kind of oil in the oil tank and how much for the remington electric pole saw ?
Bar & chain oil is the best. You can use regular or synthetic. Some say you can use atf (auto transmission fluid) or sae30 oil. I use bar & chain oil.
I have a husqvarna 137 chainsaw. The problem is with the bar oil. When the saw runs oil is flowing but where the rubber corner piece which allows the oil to flow out of appears to be just dripping the oil straight out. It looks like it should fill a small reservoir behind the metal plate and the oil then moves upwards where the chains drags the oil through the oil hole on the bar which is moving outwards as in the top chain on the bar. However the chain-brake area is just getting messy with oil splattering all over and the bar not actually getting oiled. I have fitted a new metal plate to see if the corner of the original was not sealing properly but that has not helped. The bar holes are clean. Any suggestions as I can’t see what it could be?
It’s the rubbers. I had the same problem with my 137 and 141. The rubbers shrink over time and the oil never makes it up the channel. The replacement part is one piece and less prone to leaking than the original 2 piece design.
My husky 455 rancher is not oiling the chain properly. I have tried to clean all the oil ports on the bar and saw but it still is hardly pumping any oil to the chain. What could be the problem? How does the oiling system work?
The problem is very likely to be a clogged but more likely faulty internal oil pump (especially if your chainsaw is old).Hope it helps.
How do you add oil in the hydraulic transmission?
Might differ some on different makes
Transmission oil foaming and pushing out of dipstick tube during normal transmission operation. Transmission has been serviced – oil & filter replaced with OEM components.
Has the suction filter been serviced? And what transmission oil have you used? Is it John Deere hydraulic oil or hydraulic/transmission oil? Does the tractor have a loader?
Ms 170 leaks bar chain oil out bottom, no oil on chain
Your clutch drum bearing has gone bad, letting the clutch drum to move around and cut into the oiler behind it, so now it just pumps the oil out that hole. You have to get that fixed to use the saw, otherwise you’re going to cause catastrophic damage to the saw very soon.
My 290 isn’t oiling chain. I tried adjusting oil flow and still no oil?
You have to remove the bar and clean it out
