How to Check Fluids in a John Deere 1010


Fluid in your John Deere 1010 tractor is stored and measured in separate fluid reservoirs. The fluids serve various parts of your car to either lubricate them or provide fuel or a scientific reaction. The fluid reservoirs contain dipsticks that indicate the proper amount of fluid to store in your John Deere so that it's not over or under filled. To check the fluid levels on your tractor, you'll need to go under the hood and measure the desired fluid using its corresponding dipstick.

Things You'll Need

  • Rag
  • Open the hood of the tractor and hold it up with the rod so that it's stabilized.

  • Find the reservoir for the fluid you wish to check. For example, the engine oil reservoir will be marked as such, saying "Engine Oil", with a picture that also indicates which fluid is stored within.

  • Remove the dipstick from the tank and wipe away any fluid that remains. Insert it into its tank once more to get an accurate fluid level.

  • Take out the dipstick once again and measure the level of fluid. There is a line or arrow at the bottom of the dipstick which says "FULL." If your tractor has enough of that fluid, it will reach the line, if not it will fall beneath the line.

  • Add fluids as needed, making sure you remeasure continuously until you have the correct amount.
