Were do I find my transmission fluid or the fuses on my 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe? My car will not change gears.

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Leigh, Your transmission fluid dipstick typically is located near the fire wall or near back of engine compartment with a red handle. This is the ONLY fluid that should be checked While The Vehicle is Running! You have two fuse blocks under driver dash and engine compartment. You should have this inspected by a certified mechanic.

Barb Petrey, President - DBK Enterprises Inc at Jiffy Lube The fluid level could be low. Check the level with the engine running and top off if necessary. If not low see a transmission specialist. There is no fuse for that.

Gelina Aquilina, Service Advisor / Mechanic at You have 2 fuse boxes, one under the hood and one under the dash on the drivers side. Unfortunately, I don't think changing a fuse will resolve this issue. The transmission dip stick is usually on the passenger side behind the motor. If the fluid condition and level is good, you probably have a larger issue.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive There should be a transmission dipstick towards the firewall in the engine compartment. If you add fluid, make sure it is Dexron VI. These vehicles do have issues with the internal gears. Taking your vehicle to a transmission shop for proper diagnosis would be your best bet.

Maryann Croce, Owner at Croce’s Transmission Specialists Hi Leigh, On your 2002 Tahoe, You vehicle does have a transmission dip stick. Look under the hood on the passenger's side firewall. Look in the owners manual for the fuse locations. There are multiple. Do you have a check engine light on? I would recommend getting your Tahoe diagnosed. Good luck.
