4.8 a/t fluid filler hole

Post by Andre Steyn » 21 Apr 2015 07:02

Morning does anyone know the location of the a/t fluid filler hole/neck/pipe on a 2004 4.8? Also where can I find a service dipstick to make sure I use the correct amount. Going to be filling it up with matic J type atf Liqui moly top Tec 1200. R1560 for the required 11liters!

It is just to the left of your engine dipstick Part No: 31086VC20A Gauge Assy-Oil

Checking A/T Fluid

Procedure from the manual:
1.Remove the oil charging pipe cap.
2. Insert A/T fluid gauge.
3. Warm up engine.
4. Check for fluid leakage.
5. Before driving, fluid level can be checked at fluid temperatures of 30 to 50°C (86 to 122°F) using “COLD” range on A/T fluid level gauge.
a. Park vehicle on level surface and set parking brake.
b. Start engine and move selector lever through each gear position. Leave selector lever in “P” position.
c. Check fluid level with engine idling.
d. Remove A/T fluid level gauge and wipe clean with lint-free paper.
e. Re-insert A/T fluid level gauge into oil charging pipe as far as it will go.
f. Remove A/T fluid level gauge and note reading. If reading is at low side of range, add fluid to the oil charging pipe. Do not overfill.
6.Drive vehicle for approximately 5 minutes in urban areas.
7. Re-check fluid level at fluid temperature of 50 to 80°C (122 to 176°F) using “HOT” range on A/T fluid level gauge.
8. Check fluid condition.
+ If fluid is very dark or smells burned, refer to AT section for checking operation of A/T. Flush cooling system after repair of A/T.
+ If A/T fluid contains frictional material (clutches, bands, etc.), replace radiator and flush cooler line using cleaning solvent and compressed air after repair of A/T.
9. Make sure AT fluid level gauge is removed then install the oil charging pipe cap or just leave the dipstick there.

I have removed the fluid filler end cap and hoped to see a dipstick. Am I missing something?
