Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

I needto know where the transmission fill is.

I need to check the level and maybe add transmission fluid on a 2005 Pontiac Grand Am. So I need to know where the dip stick and fill are located. I have heard it is below the master cylinder? If that is so then I don't know where that is either. If there is anyplace there are images or diagrams that would really be helpful. Thanks

How do I check transmission fluid in my 2005 pontiac grand am

If you car's trans is the 4T45E trans then there will be no dipstick, there is a *fill plug* located on the converter housing. The *level* plug is at the back of the trans down near the end of the tailshaft next to the passenger side axleshaft. Pull out the level plug and look to see if there is any sign of fluid at the bottom of the port. If not, add fluid thru the port on the top of the converter housing until fluid begins to seep out the level plug port.

Where do i check the transmission fluid

Automatics have a dipstick level checker. Manuals do not. You check the level on manuals by unscrewing the fill plug along side of transaxle, about halfway up from the bottom. If no oil comes out, stick your finger in and feel for the level. The level should be right up to the fill plug. Add fluid till it just starts to ooze out.
Good luck.

Trying to find were to check and see if i need more transmissin fluid in my 2002 pontiac grandamGT

To check the transmission fluid level in your car you have to raise the vehicle up and take out the transmission fluid check plug in the transmission. It is locate just below and forward (Towards the front of the car) of where the right axle goes into the transmission housing. To fill it take the plug out then remove the red cap located on the upper side of the transmission housing. You will need a long funnel to add the fluid. Add fluid until it can be seen dripping out of the check plug under the car. Then replace the cap and reinstall the plug. (There is no dipstick on your car)

Where do you check trans fluid level and where do you add on 2005 grand am automatic.

There are only 2 dipsticks in the engine compartment, on that engine the oil dipstick will be in the front and the transmission dipstick will be in the back by the firewall (under the windshield) remember though unlike the oil level that you check with the engine off the tranmission fluid level needs to be checked with the engine running and in park

Its best to add while all is hot..
Leave it runing in park while adding fluid..
Put a little at a time and keep checking being careful not to over fill..
The dipstick mesures in pints - not quarts..

Where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

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.
Good luck.
