Transmission Fluid. Pontiac G6. 2006

I can not find the dip stick to check my transmission fluid.

When changing the gear from park to drive, sometimes my engine jumps. If I don't have my foot on the brake firmly, the car can move forward quickly.
The enginge also seems to skip wile driving. Like it's in nuetral for a quick second then goes back in gear.

    my tranny went on the car my husband changed it but we don't know how much tranny fluid to put in, how do i find out how much to put in?

    Theres not a dipstick on these cars. Theres a cap on top of the transmission, remove it, and theres a small bolt on the front of the tranny (you have to get under the front of the car) next to the oil lines that go to the oil cooler. Remove that bolt and if i remember correctly its backwards threaded. Now pour transmission fluid into the hole on top of tranny, until transmission fluid pours out of the hole where the bolt was. Put the bolt back in and crank car and shift through from park to 1, then back to park, turn off car, and then start all over by removing bolt on front of tranny again. Keep doing this until when after you have truned the car off, and you put transmission fluid in, it pours out of hole on front. When I had the transmission replaced in my 06 G6, my mechanic said it would hold around I think 10 to 12 quarts of transmission fluid. Hope this helps.

    Also add at least 4 to 6 quarts of transmission fluid slowly before you crank it for the first time.

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.

Unfortunately, There is no way for you to check the Tranny Fluid. Almost all Auto Makers have gone Dipstick Less in the Last 2 or 3 Years. This is a Dealer Service Item Only. I know, IT SUCKS!

There is a plug that screws into the side of the transmission. Remove this plug, with the engine running only. Pour synthetic transmission fluid into the top of the transmission until fluid leaks out of the plug hole. Now it is full. Put the plug back in. IMPORTANT - If the engine is not running when you remove the plug, a lot of transmission fluid will pour out of the plug hole.

Where do you check the transmission level on a 1995 Polaris 425 Magnum. How do you add fluid?


on any vehicle with an automatic transmission, there are two dip sticks. One to measure oil level, and the other transmission fluid level( typically labled 'check with engine running in park'). To add transmission fluid requires a funnel to introduce fluid via the dip-stick tube.

If you have a manual transmission, then you don't need transmission fluid, you need gear oil, which can be measured at the transmission and added at the same port.

What can cause my car not to go into gear after the car is warmed up?


Check The Transmission Fluid, Is It Low? Check At Operating Temperature, Is The Fluid In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick? Is It Touching The Dip Stick? If It Is Not On The Dip Stick It May Just Be Low, Or, After You Add Fluid To Top It Off (Get It In The Cross Hatched Area Of The Dip Stick) And It Still Will Not Go Into Gear Or Move The Vehicle Normally, The Clutches May Be Smoked (Shot, Ruined) Have An Experienced Transmission Mechanic Look At It To Tell For Sure. If You Could Get It To A Trans. Shop By Trailer, They May Take A Quick Look & Tell You If There Is Any Hope. Hope This Helps.

My pontiac g6 was very low on transmission fluid, how much do i need to put in. The auto store guy said half a qt. Put half qt. In and transmission doesn't even shift out of first gear.


Step 1: Start your car and warm up the engine.

Step 2: With the engine running remove the transmission fluid dip stick, wipe off the fluid and reinsert.

Step 3: Remove the dip stick and check the fluid level.

Step 4: If it is low stop the engine and add about a cup of fluid using a funnel into the dip stick tube.

Step 5: Restart the engine and recheck the fluid level.

Continue filling and checking until the dip stick shows it is full on the stick. Do not guess as too much fluid can be as harmful as too little.

Transmission dip stick keeps popping out


check trans. fluid level per owners manual.The high operating temperatures cause fluid to expand greatly,an over-filled transmission can actually force excess fluid out of the dip stick tube.check level with trans. hot,engine running in park on a level surface. After driving,place shifter in park,hold brake and move shifter through all gears and back to park.remove dipstick,wipe clean,re-insert and check fluid level.normally,trans fluid & filter should be changed +/- 100 k miles

How to check transmission fluid and fill if nessesary.


if it is an automatic transmission, the dip stick is under the hood and should be on the drivers side of the engine,start the car leave it in park,pull the dip stick out and wipe it off with a cloth,reinstall the dip stick in the filler tube completely,and remove again and notice where the fluid level is on the dip stick,if you need to add fluid to bring it up to full,the correct fluid for your car is printed on the dip stick,you need a transmission funnel and put in in the tube you pulled the dip stick out of.
if you transmission is a standard,there is a 5/8 bolt on the side of the transmission you remove and put something like a screw driver in the hole to see where the fluid level is,.
