Before adding transmission fluid to your Chrysler 300, you should make sure that your engine was running when you checked the transmission fluid levels. If the level is low, you need to add fluid by using the dipstick tube.
- In the cabin of the Chrysler 300, locate the hood release lever. Pull to release the hood.
- Release the safety catch and raise the hood up
- Next, locate the transmission fluid cap. Some models do not have a transmission fluid dipstick. If that is the case, consult with your mechanic to check the transmission fluid level.
- Remove the reservoir cap to add fluid.
- Consult your owners’ manual to determine the type of transmission fluid your vehicle will need. You can generally find this information toward the back of the manual under a section called “fluid, capacities, and specifications” or something of the like.
- Remove the dipstick from the dipstick tube and place a funnel in the tube.
- Slowly add fluid up to the maximum fluid level line. Be careful! It will fill up quickly.
- Don’t overfill in transmission fluid.
- Replace the dipstick into the dipstick tube. Then remove to get a reading to ensure you have filled the vehicle with adequate levels. Remember, to get an accurate reading of transmission fluid, your vehicle must be running. Replace dipstick after reading.
- Replace the reservoir cap
- Slowly and carefully shut the vehicle’s hood.
For more questions, consult your mechanic and/or your owners’ manual.
