Question Where to locate transmission "dip-stick" or reservoir

My 2005 Suzuki Verona seems to be shifting hard, practically jerking the car when I shift from park or drive. it also hesitates when i give it gas. it was suggested by a friend to check my transmission fluid, i have tried and well, i am unable to locate the "dip-stick" or reservoir. is this something that needs to be checked by a mechanic?

Please help.

this car does not have a dipstick. it uses a drain & fill plug on the side of the transmission case. and there is a special socket to undo those plugs..

Our dealership has that socket, but since we only sold two Veronas and both of them are out of warranty they don't come back anymore lol. I don't think that socket has EVER been used!! FYI - The Verona uses special tranny fluid if I remember correct. Our parts department has a bunch of it in stock

Thank you for your help Larry and Jeff. I will be taking my car in today. And i know what you mean about the "socket never being used". it had been a good 2 years of driving my car until i saw two other Verona's in town. other than that, i haven't seen any others around. The Verona's are not a very common car here.

Default 2nd Qstion: Excessive static shock when exiting car

Ever since I obtained the car, I have noticed that everytime i get out of the car, I always get a shock from touching the door. All of my passengers also receive a nice unexpected shock when exiting the car. I have become accustomed to it by now, but there are times when this shock gets me in a not so nice place. The only thing i can come up with is maybe its from the interior floor matts. someone once suggested it could be a conductor i dont know what it could be and I would like to fix this as well. would the only solution be to place rubber matts in my car?

If anyone has any suggestions as to what it could be, please let me know.

I also have a problem with the clock staying on. it turns off and on. i have a new battery, so i don't know what to check. the mechanic said it could be electrical, but didnt look "important" or "pressing" enough to check and just recommended that i leave it.

you can try one of those static strips (they sell at most auto stores) that you see hanging from the back of cars. they help discharge any built up static electricity to the ground. or grab hold of the door frame before you get out of the car, that way the shock happens at your feet and you wont really feel it.
(ill admit im a little curious about the "not so nice places..")

with the clock, i dont think theres really much you can do besides replacing it...

I took the car to my near by auto shop, they were too busy to do run the diagnostics test, so will have to take it tomorrow morning. so the only thing done on my short "to-do" list was the oil change. I did check out a near by Kragen's auto parts store, and they didnt have the static strips that you mentioned, for some reason they dont carry them anymore, so now I have to hunt around. I hate going into auto parts stores.

replace the in-dash clock? not feeling like doing that. could it be a fuse?

Car is fixed. I was advised by the shop that i usually go to, to take it in to the local dealer. What was the problem? They replaced a Transmission Range Switch. hope this helps anyone with similar problems. It was explained to me that, the reason why the car would not respond when I would give it some gas is because the signals were not being communicated so the car would go into a "safe" mode and put itself in Neutral. the jerking or popping that i would experience when shifting from P to D or R is because it wasnt receiving the signal so it was basically slow to respond.

im learning alot about my car now, but i also find that not too many mechanics like working on a Daewoo/Suzuki.

Thanks for your help guys.

Got specs on those sockets? Is it something like the oddball 8m/m square drive plugs (like on Peugeot transmissions,) or something different?

Got a 2005 Verona for my wife in 2007 (dealer loaner, just before they stopped. Bought it two years old with ~385 miles on it,) and it's been a solid little car. But, we're coming up on 100Kmiles, and I'm going to need to address some of these things now (I'd read somewhere that the Jatco box in there is a "lifetime fill," but I'm not sure I trust that...)
