This is how you do it.

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.

CHEVY COLBALT WONT GO INTO GEAR ?? 2005


if its the the gear selector is moving and not going into gear ----under hood drivers side under brake mastercylinder is the top of transmission the gear selector cable connection is there check that it hasnt come off,loose or damaged ----=if selector does go into a gear and trans not responding look under drivers side and thru wheel wells for fluid leak ---theirs no dipstick so to check fluid
There is a black cap located on top of the trans almost directly under the brake master cylinder. It's about 2 inches high, 3 inches around. That's where you add the fluid. The checking procedure is as follows: Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified. 104 degrees F.
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
vehicle must be level with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range.
Remove the transmission oil level control plug.
The plug in an 11mm bolt located between the r/s axle seal and the oil pan.
Check the fluid level. The fluid level should be even with the bottom of the threaded plug hole.
If you remove the plug and nothing comes out, add about half a quart at a time until the fluid starts to dribble out. Once it stops, the level is good.this is the procedure to check fluid if their is fluid and problem still persists the transmission module and or internal transmission damage possible which a mechanic {transmission}would need to diagnostic check the following link has multi videos for the cobalt transmission 05 Cobalt Transmission Fill Yahoo Video Search Results

Where is transmission dipstick Chevy cobalt 2005


according to wiki.answers.com
"Chevy Cobalt has a sealed Automatic Transmission... no dip stick. Probably best to take it in to get service by trans shop if you think it needs changing or re-filling."
Or
"There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly ontop of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car1.gif in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission, With the car running (WARNING: THE CAR MUST REMAIN RUNNING WHILE PLUG IS OUT!!!!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. AGAIN DONT SHUT THE CAR OFF WHILE IT IS RUNNING OR ELSE FLUID WILL POUR OUT!"

Where is the trans gauge on a 2005 Chevrolet Cobalt?


There is no Transmission dipstick. It is all sealed. To service you need to take it to a shop or do it yourself, but be prepared to get really dirty.

Transmission fluid level?


There is a 11mm plug on the passenger side of the trans near the axle shaft. Remove that with the car level, trans hot, and engine idling. Fluid should just come out of there when its full.
