Yes. You should get the fluids in your car changed according to your maint. books recommendations. I have nearly 175,000 miles on my Toyota and I believe it is because I have faithfully kept up with my oil, fluid and belt changes. Happy driving. Kris

SOURCE: when do i change the transmission fluid 2005 monte carlo?

Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

SOURCE: Where do you fill power steering fluid in 2003

The 3100 and 3400 Engine Models have the power steering reservoir located on top of the engine on the passenger side of the vehicle, located directly on top of the power steering pump. The 3800 engine has the power steering pump located on the rear of the engine. you will want to wait until the engine is cold, some of them are a tight squeeze and can cause burns when it's hot. You have to, with the engine OFF, reach back and around and take the cap off to pull out the Cap/Dipstick and check it. Filling it is the tricky part, I have some tubing attached to the end of a funnel I use to Fill them, I currently work at a GM Dealership. Sometimes the wiring runs right on top of the reservoir, and it can be a hassle to get the cap off.

That means your powersteering is out of fluid. This could possibly be a leak in the powersteering pump or it could be as simple as add more fluid.

I have a humming noise while driving my 2003 monte carlo ss

Most likely a wheel bearing, Take it for a drive, When you hear the noise move the steering wheel slightly right then left and listen for a pitch change in the whine, What ever way the pitch changes, Say you turn left and it changes? Its the left bearing and same for the right.

2003 monte carlo whining noise and hard shifts

Transmission. Check fluid level using proper checking procedure, which is usually get to operating temperature (take it for a short drive), park it in neutral idling, parking brake on. Fluid should be at correct level, and red in color. Anything else, have a transmission flush and fill, do the filter as well, just to be safe. It's a good place to start. And hopefully you don;t have bigger problems. Hope this helps.

Transmission fluid

i think the monte carlo is just like the grand prix i just did maint. on, if so i asked my dad a couple days later (trans expert 30years) where to fill and check fluid at since i could not do it and he said that owners have no option but to take it into the dealer or trans shop.and i know that the montes and grand prixs have the same drive train.
