My car messed up and I talked to a dealership and they said they would have to run a diagnostic and if it was the transmission. If the fluid was low they would replace it. Iasked if I could replace and they said no because it is very hard to get to and the fluid is very expensive. Is it really that expensive and can I change it myself?

Dex-CVT fluid is the special fluid for this transmission it is pricey. The check plug is under the transmission, so it is awkward to check.
...he axle a lot of fluid came out. I know how to check the level, but don't know how to add the transmission fluid. Thanks.
I have been having a problem with my transmission fluid leaking. I have been unable to locate a dipstick to check the level of the transmission fluid...
IS it true that only the dealer can do a Trans flush on a Saturn Ion? I have gotten conflicting info so I want to be sure. Thanks
i have 60,000 miles and want to have it serviced. ive been told not to flush the trans just add fluid if necessary and change filter. was i given correctinfo or should i have entire system flushed....
