Re: changing of spark plugs and transmission fluid,,,,,,,
Dipstick should have a yellow handle on it and i'm assuming u are looking for 3 outta 6 plugs. They are behind the engine and usually accessible from underneath. Some GM models require removing the rear engine support mount and then tilt the engine upwards. I suggest u take it to a garage.

theres not one1 the only time you check it is if it has a transmission leak or you change the fluid. to do this you have to take ****** pan off to let fluid out. on top of transmission is where to add fluid. the only way to check is to get car up in air, start car get underneath and take out plug in back of pan and if it just drips out, it is ok. if not, add to fluid on red cap on top of transmission. make sure car is up in air and level and the engine is warm. good-day and may god bless!
There is no dip stick. There is a 7/16 check plug just under the passenger side axle.The transmission must be warm and the engine idling in park to check. This tough to do without a lift.Fluid will drip out of hole when full.
If you have an Automatic transmission. Lift the hood. Locate the Transmission dip stick. Start the engine and let the engine warm up some. then check the fliud level on the dip stick. On a Manual Transmission, locate the transmission under the vehicle and the fill plug (upper) and drain plug (lower) on the transmission. Remove the fill plug (upper) and see if fluid runs out. If no fluid runs out, add recommeded transission fluid until the fluid starts running out, the replace fill plug..
2005 Chevy Malibu has a sealed transmission with no dipstick, so you can't check the transmission fluid level without getting underneath the car and looking at the transmission itself.
Locate the transmission. Look for a small plug with a hex bolt on the passenger side of the transmission, adjacent to the passenger side front tire.
Start the engine and let it warm up to regular operating temperature. Remove the hex bolt from the plug hole in the side of the transmission with a wrench or socket. If transmission fluid flows freely from the hole, the fluid level is correct. If it barely drips, or no fluid comes out, the transmission fluid level is low.
GM as well as other car manufactures decided we...as vehicle owners....no longer need to check the trans fluid, so they decided on making transmissions as a sealed unit, which no longer requires a dip stick. I know what your about to say, and I agree.
It basically has a sealed transmission. Is the transmission showing any signs of leaking? The general rule of thumb is if the transmission is showing no signs of leaking, the fluid is good for 100k miles.
But, if you want to check the transmission fluid, put the car on jack stands so that it is level. On the drivers side of the transmission, about 2/3s of the way up, you will find a 15mm plug. Remove that plug slowly. If no fluid comes out, put your finger in the hole to see if the fluid is right at the bottom of the level of the plug hole. If so, it's good. Some fluid may trickle out when you remove the plug.
If the level is low and you need to top it off, you will find a red cap under the brake master cylinder under the hood. That is the fill location. Leave the plug out of the transmission, put a pan under it, and slowly fill from the engine bay until it starts to leak out of the transmission plug. Replace plug and you are done.
Great design!!!! There is a plug on the right side of the unit.(like the ones on a stickshift trans) you need to remove it on level ground and fill through the hole you mentioned. It's full when fluid begins to run out of the hole on the side.
if you have changed the plugs and wires you need to do a cylinder balancetest and find out what cylinder is missing after you find out what cylinder is bad check compression if it is over 100 check your injector
