Question about 2004 Pontiac Vibe
Trans axle and transmission are the same in a front wheel drive car. After 25 oil changes, the trans fluid probably should be replaced anyway, if never done yet. Pontiac/Toyota do recommend synthetic trans fluid, which is quite pricey per quart from the dealer. If you did drain the trans fluid, and didn't replace it, chances are you wouldn't be driving right now. I do wonder how oil change #26 went wrong? Not criticizing, just wondering. Hope this helps.

1Rise the front end of the car and pull E-brake. (Please use a car stand to hold car up )
2.Remove trans drain plug let fluid drain out into a oil pan.
3.Once fluid has finish draining out, reinstall drain plug and lower the car down.
4. Remove the dipstick (yellow loop) from the transmission located on top and in the back of trans. You might have use a flashlight to see it. Dipstick is hard to see if this is the fist time you're looking for it.
5. use a funnel and add 3.1qt of ATF fluids.(auto trans fluids only)
6. Insert the dipstick into the transmission and you're done.
7.Go racing :)
