Where is the transmition...

Where is the transmition dip stick in a Kia Soul 2016

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Soul yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I am not fixing it myself all I want is to be able to check the transmition fliud

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, which fluid are you talking about? And what color and consistency is it?

Transmition fluid. I have no idea of the color since I cannot find the stick

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No just that

Hi,

Ok, I need to know if yours has the 1.6 or 2L engine as transmissions are different and checking procedure is different

HI,

Ok, there is not a dipstick on this one. Give me a moment to upload the procedure to check fluid level, which is a bit indepth.
