Question about 1999 Pontiac Grand Am GT
I assume you mean an automatic transmission. The dipstick should be to the right rear of the engine compartment (facing the car). There should be directions on how to check the fluid level stamped on the dipstick. To change the filter and fluid, you need a large drain pan and a pair of ramps. Start loosening the drain pan bolts, loosening more on the lower side of the pan. As the gasket starts to come loose the fluid should start poring out. Once you have the pan off, examine the pan and look for large bits of metal or chunks of clutch in the bottom of the pan (sooty looking deposits are normal), clean the pan, clean off the gasket surface, install the new filter, put the new gasket on the pan and start inserting the bolts through the pan lip and gasket. Put the pan back in place and start all of the bolts. Tighten all until they are finger tight, make sure the gasket has not shifted, then start tightening with a wrench. Fill the transmission with the recommended fluid (probably Dexron III or Mercon) and check the level. Do not overfill as the transmission will not shift properly.
