The control module is located just behind the ignition coil. Sorta hard to get to but we got it and the van is running great.

SOURCE: Radiator Drain Plug Location 99 Astro

I have a 99 Astro & my drain plug is on the passenger side. Look for the small drain tube at the bottom of the plastic tank. The turn knob is right above it.

SOURCE: Code Reader reads Shifter Solenoid Stuck or Off

The Shift solenoids are located in the transmission oil pan. I would recommend replacing both shift solenoids while you're in there. Also replace the filter and pan gasket. The shift solenoids are located towards the rear of the valvebody and will be identical to each other. They are held in place by a retaining clip which is easily removed with a small screwdriver or similar tool. Care must be taken as parts may fly out of the bore when the solenoids are removed. Hope this helps.

Does it feel like the shifter cable is actually moving the detent in the transmission? I've seen a broken shifter cable in a cavalier a while back with the same symptoms you described. Check the cable where it connects to the transmission. It's under the hood on the drivers side.

Are you referring to the oil filter? It is located under the engine on the drivers side just in front of the flywheel cover on the transmission. The drain plug is a 15mm bolt.

How to change oil in standard trasnmission in Ford Ranger 1997


remove the fill plug before you do anything. If you can not remove the fill plug there is no reason to remove the drain plug since you will not be able to fill the transmission once the fluid is drained out.

Once the fill plug is out, remove the drain plug. Let oil drain into a drain pain. Reinstall the drain plug. Fill the transmission with the appropriate fluid until the fluid starts to drain from the fill hole. Reinstall the fill plug. Your good to go.

Where is the transmission dipstick located in a 1998 chevy prizm



  • No dipstick on this transmission. This transmission has two plugs on the transmission itself, underneath the vehicle.
  1. Turn the vehicle off for this transmission.
  2. Pull the top plug first. This is the check / fill hole. If fluid comes out of that hole then the fluid level is OK. If it does not then add until it just barely seeps out and this is the proper way to fill your transmission.
  3. You can continue by pulling the bottom plug (with a fluid pan underneath to catch all the transmission fluid) and let all the fluid drain.
  4. Not plug the lower hole.
  5. Now fill the transmission from the upper hole.
  6. Now plug the top hole.
  7. That is a transmission drain and fill and you just saved $60+ that a shop would charge in labor.

How many quarts of transmission fluid does my 1999 chevy astro van require?


1999 CHEVROLET TRUCKS ASTRO VAN 4.3L 6-cyl Engine Code [W]
CAPACITIES: Automatic Transmission, 4L60-E Initial Fill..........4.7 liters
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill 4 speed 4L60-E..........10.6 liters

To check fluid level, transmission should be hot and engine running at idle. Pull the transmission dip stick out "red" wipe clean and re-insert. Check level of transmission fluid as indicated on the dip stick using the second reading and make sure the Astro is parked on leveled ground. Add Dexron III or VI as needed and do not over fill.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

Can't locate fluid eservoir to add trans fluid


Here how to do it: If you see no signs of leaking from the transmission then the level is probably not low, take it to a transmission shop, transmission repair on this car is not for the DYI.

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

Has the 'Check Engine' light come on? I had this problem at 30,000 miles and the trouble codes set were transmission component slipping. Ultimately required replacement of the transmission.
