Question about 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
A Haynes manual would know (purchased at Auto Zone or other) also, I have called dealer service departments and asked to speak to any available mechanic and sometimes I get lucky and they let me talk to them and they answer my questions!

Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

This is a common GM specific problem. Your turn signal switch contains an elaborate networking device that has to cancel brakelights while running a turn light. Often times the ground within the turn signal switch is lost causing your situation. After investigating such other possibilities as fuses and loose grounds it may become necessary to replace the turn signal switch. Thank you, Dana

On the supercharger snout, located immediately to the right of the coil pack mounted closest to the supercharger, is the supercharger oil plug. It is a hex nut that uses a 3/8" allen wrench.
When the engine is cold, remove the plug. You can use any item of your choice that will create vacuum such as a siphon, a turkey baster or my favorite is a squirt bottle nozzle with about a 12" line on it.
Insert your hose into the reservoir hole and remove as much of the oil as you can. If you use the squirt bottle nozzle then if the hose is long enough then you should be able to "snake" the hose down into the reservoir almost the entire length of it by pushing the end of it toward a "1 o'clock" position if you are standing directly in front of the car.
Squirt the oil into another container. If your oil is the GM supercharger oil, it is animal fat based and biodegradable and can go in your regular trash.
Refill with GM supercharger oil or any other appropriate lightweight oil specified to meet requirement for the Eaton M90 supercharger. An equivalent oil can be purchased from www.zzperformance.com.
Fill the reservoir until the fluid reaches the bottom of the fill hole threads.
As an added note, if you lose the hex nut cap for the reservoir it isn't necessary to order a new one. A 7/8" fine thread bolt will fit perfectly but be careful not to torque more than 8ft/lbs with either the nut or bolt.
