9 QUARTS??? Dude! that transmission barely holds 9 quarts when it is totally empty! You are going to destroy some stuff and have fluid everywhere!

The transmission fluid level must be checked from under the vehicle. It is easiest on a lift, but if you can get the car up on jack stands or something, that will work, as long as the car is LEVEL. To check the fluid level, start and run the engine for several minutes to get the oil hot. Then remove the check plug located just below and forward of the right drive axle. (See picture below) The fluid should be level with the edge of the hole (or just barely running out) when it is full. (This is checked with the engine RUNNING)

For the harsh engagement problem, I would recommend checking your motor mounts, NOT adding fluid.

You need to replace the TCC solenoid under the side cover pan of the transmission. You can also unplug the wires that go to the transmission in the front. After that it will not go into overdrive but it will stay running at stop lights untill you have it repaired.

When i put it into gear Drive or Reverse it makes a thump sound. It is fine when driving. Any thoughts


Obviously something is going on in your transmission. If your not having any issues with it other then that thump sound, then I'm not sure there's a problem with it. If the "thump" is very loud or enough to shake the car substantially, then you may want to get it checked out my your local mechanic.

How do you remove the headlight assembly on a 05 Pontiac G6 GT to replace headlight bulb? When unlocking car, the bulb works, but when starting or putting car in drive light goes off. Is the bulb the...


real interesting... there should be no relation to the "drive" and the head light. current drawn by the starter causes the lights to go out or dim. Check the headlamp relay and for corrosion on connector to lamp assemblies in the engine compartment. On back of assemblies there is a large diameter plastic retainer after you remove the wire clip. Turn counter clockwise and pull back. a wire clip should retain the bulb itself

Take your car to a mechanic or your local auto parts superstore and have them read/scan the codes for the reason for the check engine light. A good place to start.

2005 g6 stalling


I would suggest checking your wiring (core wire on the distributor, plug wires and the negative battery ground) I would imagine that the forward motion of the vehicle is possibly making your wires lose connectivity and making the car stall. Just a thought though.
