SOURCE: 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.
Regards,

SOURCE: check automatic transmission fluid 2001 pontiac sunfire

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

SOURCE: Transmission Fluid. Pontiac G6. 2006

The trannsmission is a sealed unit and there is no dipstick. Check to see if you have a leak. More than likely it sounds like your low on fluid at least a 1/2 to a whole quart. Since these are sealed units it should be taken to the dealership to have looked at. If there is not any leaks then I would add 1/2 qt of tranny fluid and try driving so see if it helped. If it helped a little but the same problems are still there add another 1/2 qt. If it doesnt solve the problem then your tranny needs to be looked at.

SOURCE: 2008 pontiac torrent back hatch lock won't unlock

can you get it open at all? or can you get to it? it sounds like it's simply frozen. if you can get to it the simpliest thing would be to spray wd40 on the part that spreads. you'll need to give it a minute then spray it again to make sure it gets in good. now, if you can open it, do so, the spray it with the wd40, wipe if down some, work the mechanism then spray again. this should loosen and help it work . unless you've been hit and the thing was jammed somehow it should do the job. good luck & God bless,

My service awd drive light came on and wont turn off


You need wiring diagrams & professional scan tool
software to work on it

Codes have nothing to do with parts replacement

Without the requires reference material & proper
test equipment, you can't do anything

Can't even find a possible problem, if you don't know
the how the system works, or how to test things

While I never recommend a dealer, that might be the quickest
solution for you.

Doubt a local shop is too familiar with AWD on many vehicles,
car at least,trucks they probably figured out

How do i check the transmission fluid on a 2008 Pontiac G6 6 cylinder?


There are quite a few types of cars on the road with sealed automatic transmissions like your Pontiac. Yours will have a plug screwed into the front of the trans near the coolant lines. It has an 11 mm [7/16] head. Unscrew it then check the level by finding if the fluid is to the hole. It's topped off by removing a cap on top of the trans and adding fluid until it starts to run out the hole, with the engine off. Your owner's manual will list all this.
