There should be a filler tube just behind the grill.The bottle is behind the grill way in the front of the vehicle.Have someone push the washer button and follow the noise of the pump motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

SOURCE: how do I check the transmission fluid in my 2001

There is no dipstick on the 01 Catera or any Catera for that matter (97 to 01) also same transmission used on 3 series BMWs.

I have 2 - 2001

It's a sealed transmission. There are fluid drain plugs, one at side of the tranny and one at the bottom. Jack the car up from the front on a level surface. Place a hose to a funnel and remove the top filler access plug (the side one). Insert the hose here and fill the funnel until fluid leaks out the side hole (make sure you have a catch pan). Then drop the car and let the excess fluid level out from the fill hole. Raise the car again and wipe away the excess fluid and re-install the filler plug.

I have a 98 cadillac catera and it slips right out of gearb when i have it in drive i have to shift it myself down to first and it goes fine second is also fine but when i put it in 3rd or drive gear...

You are having an ELECTRICAL or SOLENOID problem... Since Manually you are able to get the gears to work properly, then I would be looking at the Electronics and / or the Shift Solenoids (Solenoids FIRST).

In my 1997 Cadillac Catera if I turn my lights, windshield wiper, or Air on the battery goes down slowly untill it dies...I have bought a brand new battery also replaced the altenator!! What else could it...

It sounds like the ground from the alternator is bad. Have the connections cleaned and restore the ground. if that doesn't work have the alternator tested. Sometimes they do fail straight from the shelf. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I just got a 1998 cadillac catera and i been trying to figure it out where iwhs the transmision in this car cause i have to put some oil on it. but i can find it. i would like to know exactly where is it.

The transmission in your 1998 Cadillac Catera is a "sealed unit". Under normal use, it does not require service to the transmission filter/fliud.
If you insist on checking/changing the fluid, there is a fill plug at the side of the transmission that will help you determine the fill level of the transmission.
You warm the transmission to operating temp, and remove that plug with the engine running, then on top of the transmission on the driver's side of the vehicle, there is a red plastic cap you remove. Insert a funnel, and slowly add fluid, watching until it begins to dribble out of the check hole under the car. Reinsert the check plug, then cap the transmission again.
Recommended fluid type is Dexron-VI.

I have a 1997 Cadillac Catera that is having shifting problems. It slips between first and second gear when I accelerate hard. The light on the dash has come on. It also chatters when in first and second...

It may help to change the transmission fluid and the filter. I'd definitely baby the tranny until you can figure out the problem.

Smell the transmission fluid for burnt smell and discoloration, it is a sign of trouble.

You may want to start shopping around for transmission shops.

Good luck!

I need a picture of the windshield drain on a 2001 catera cadillac. It seems the tube does not go all the way down to the drain. It is leaking into the body this can't be good.

You need to clean out the cabin filter drain tube. The cabin filter housing allows the air to enter the cabin through the HVAC system. When water gets in here, the drain tube allows it to escape. If the drain tube is plugged with leaves and dirt, the housing fills up and it overflows into passenger floor area.
Remove the filter, clean the drain tube (prepare to get your feet wet) and put in a new filter.
The filter is below the pass side WS wiper under the plastic cover.

There is no dipstick to check the transmission fluid on a 1998 Cadillac Catera. It can be checked by opening the fill plug on the side of the transmission.
