I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.
Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.

those can be tricky to solve. get in the back of the car and look for a connector on the window. some times for some reason they let go. if it has let go then visit you auto store and ask for a fix there are a few products that are cheap. if it has not let go then if you know how to use a multi meter check for voltage on the connector/s if theres voltage then there is a break in the defroster somwhere

Hello oldiro: My name is Roger and I can help. From under the vehicle look up between the transmission and the side of the block. Mid motor above the pan rail there is a bolted in sensor. This should be the crank sensor.It will have two wires plugged in to it. Please rate this answer as this lets us know you received the information you asked for. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

The OBD II code for P0400 is Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Malfunction.
I'm sure the only thing you have left is you may have to replace the EGR valve or check for any leak from the vaccum lines going to to EGR valve.

If possible, bring the window down to about 2/3rds raised
Remove the door trim panel.
Carefully remove the plastic liner from the door - it should be stuck on with of gooey black stuff. You will be re-using the goo and plastic so be careful with it and dont let the goo'd surfaces touch each other and dont get the goo too dirty.
The inside edges of the metal on the door can sometimes be like a razor blade - you were warned.
You might want to move the window up or down a bit until you can see the bottom of the glass where it joins the rails. This is difficult if the window is stuck full open or full closed - just be patient and careful in these cases. The window connects to the rails somewhere along the bottom of the glass and you might have to feel around to find the clips.Unbolt or unclip the window from the regulator rails and lift the window up and out of the door.
Remove the bolts holding the regulator and motor assembly. There are probably 2 bolts on each of the 2 rails and 2 or 3 bolts on the motor assembly. My guess is that they are 10MM metric bolts. The regulator cables will be clipped onto the door in 2 or 3 spots, push these clips back into the door then drop the motor forward enough to unhook the wire harness from the motor.
At this point you sort of fold up the whole regulator assembly and pull it out.
Replacing the motor with a genuine GM part is VERY expensive. usually, for about 1/3rd of the price of the motor alone, you can get a complete regulator assembly (motor included) from an aftermarket source.
