SOURCE: I dont know where to

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.

Hi

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.

SOURCE: how do you check a 2004 alero transmission fluid

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.

I just replaced the transmission in my Oldsmobile Alero. The car will pick up speed when its cold but as it warms up, the speed reduces. Can this be the cause of the cadillac converter?


TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL COULD BE LOW OR IMPROPER ADJUSTED OR WORN OUT SHIFT CABLE. IF ALL IS GOOD YOUR TRANSMISSION IS A 4T40E OR 4T45E ELECTONICALLY CONTROLLED FOUR SPEED TRANSMISSION. ALL TRANSMISSION SHIFTS IS CONTROLLED BY PCM AND TCM YOU CAN TAKE CAR TO DEALERSHIP OR TRANSMISSION SHOP THEY CAN REPROGRAM ALL THE SHIFT CONTROLS.

Idles fine, but has hesitation and cutting back when you accelerate.


same with mine... exact same situation. I have an automatic, and when it switches gears the rpms may spike and/or it won't shift. further investigation showed that the transmission fluid was leaking thru a hose... add a half quart of trans oil and drive it to a mechanic unless you know how to check your level

sorry but time to visit the transmission shop. the only thing you could try first is Lukas Transmission oil sold at parts stores one quart only. make sure you get the oil for transmissions and not the crankcase.

Roaring noise in front of 2003 olds alero gets louder as I accelerate, sounds like manual transmission needing to be shifted to next gear(this isn't a manual transmission


Have a shop look at it. It may just be a failed wheel bearing. The bearing will leave you stranded if it gets bad enough and cause more damage.

Hard down shifts


Check the transmission fluid level, see if there is any foaming in the fluid which is bad, and condition, If the fluid is low the transmission fluid pressure could be low and if the transmission fluid filter is dirty, that could also be restricted the fluid flow.
The transmission fluid should be bright red like strawberry in colour, if it's dark like burgundy then it's time to change the transmission oil and filter. The hard down shifting could be a servo that is sticking caused by dirt in the fluid, have a Transmission shop service the transmission and scan the car's ECM for any codes that may be causing your shifting problem.
Good luck and hope this helps.
