You do not say whether it is an automatic or standard ,and also is it a 4 or 6 cylinder????. If it is a 6 cylinder with autpmatic there is no dipstick,only a RED cap on the drivers side of the engine.It is a little hard to see but if you look straight down under where the air tube is that comes from the air box it is there.It is a little tricky to get to but it just unscrews and the fluid shoud be to the top. Get a flashlight and check. Normally these will not loose fluid unless there is a leak.You will need a funnel with a long hose to put fluid in,and make sure the fluid is for a GM ONLY.

sounds like bad clutches in trans...tranny shop needed...takes 4 qts for a filter change and remember to check it when the vehicle is warm and in park running.

You need to get the cars ECU (cars main computer brain) scanned for fault codes. The symptoms you are having are often caused by faulty engine sensors. The scan will identify which of these are at fault as these faults are retained within the memory of the ECU. This will give you a definite direction on the problem.
Ideally you should ask the dealer to do it as they have the software specific to your car - however your local Auto Parts store will often do this for you for free with a generic scanner. Many of these sensors are easy to change out yourself if you can identify which one is giving the error.
Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.
