Re: How do I add transmission fluid without dipstick

As suggested, you should probably have changed it completely if you have high mileage. The shops check by removing the fill hole bolt, and basi...

The price you paid isn't horrible actually. Since it appears to be mechanically sound, don't sweat it. After reading the reviews on vibes, I'm convinced that theses cars are little gems. Kind of like VW beetles, or old 80's Corollas. Proper maintenance and you'll get much useage. Hey, I actually le...
