The transmission fluid stick is generally not a universal fit part and will normally be specific to your vehicle. There are many local aftermarket auto parts stores, such as Autozone, O’Reilly’s, Napa, and so on, where you should be able to order or purchase a transmission dipstick for your vehicle without having to turn to the dealer.
