Question about Pontiac Cars & Trucks
I thought it was the oil pan, thick fluid all over under motor. Figured out it was the transmission gasket. Took it off and didn't have to hit it with a mallet just started pouring out. Now just wondering how to get the fluid back in. Also there is a filter in there that I need to change?

I see no correlation between the two events. Things just happen on an old car. I'd question spending money to fix the 11-year old car, or replace it with something newer and less miles. I'd replace the car.

I would not recommend using Dexron III. Honda Odysseys are prone to transmission problems. A drain and fill with Genuine Honda Fluid is Recommended. The drain plug can be removed with a 3/8 ratchet at the bottom of the trans. The fill hole is at the top of the trans. You remove it with a socket on a long extension. The capacity is close to 3 quarts

SOURCE: Transmission fluid flushing
In normal situations people do not flush their trannys. Your would normally just lower the pand and change the filter and replace the fluid that came out. If you are not having a problem with your tranny this is what I would suggest. As the fluid gets older the tranny gets "used to" the old oil that is in there. When you add new fluids the new fluid contains detergents that clean the internal parts as they circulate. Unless this is the first time you've been to the recommended mileage for changing the fluid (I.E. 30,000 miles) you could flush it. If you do not know the history of changes, or if you are at, lets say 100,000 miles I wouldn't recommend flushing it. When the new detergents clean out the parts they remove gunk that is actually helping the transmission. Don't get me wrong, you don't want a whole lot of gunk, but you also don't want to remove gunk that for example is holding a pin in place, so the pin falls out (just an example) I hope this wasn't too hard to understand, and I hope I answered your question.

HI, this transmission is a sealed type. you will need to purchase a special tool from the dealership to fill this unit properly.
Contact the nearest Audi dealer for this fill tool.
