How do you check transmission fluid on 2008 chevy colbolt started or off

Check your owner's manual. It will tell you exactly how to check any and all fluids for your vehicle. Any mechanic shop or oil change place should be able to help you with that or even do it for you (normally free of charge). Generally speaking, transmission fluid is checked with the engine warmed up and running however it is not the case for all vehicles. For many standard transmission vehicles there is no way to check the fluid unless you pull out a plug and stick your finger inside (engine off of course!).

Good luck and Blessings!

Where is the dipstick for transmission fluid on Aveo 5 2008 manual transmission?

I've never seen a manual transmission with a dipstick. Even most modern automatic transmissions are sealed units designed to go 200k+ miles without a fluid change. Dipsticks are pretty much a thing of the past.

Manual transmissions almost always have two plugs on a side somewhere... One at the bottom to drain, and another 4 to 6 inches above it to fill. You add fluid until it just starts to dribble out of the fill-hole and put the plug back in. If your manual tranny uses ATF like my T-56 does, I find it easiest to drill a hole in the cap on the fluid bottle and add a grommet from a hardware store and stick in a 3' length of tubing. Now you have a squeeze-bottle making it easy to fill through an inconveniently placed hole in a hard-to-reach place.

Starts and will move for a few seconds but then stops moving and won't turn off. What's wrong?

Find the transmission dipstick and check the fluid level.
Read the owner's manual for the location of the dipstick, and the kind of transmission fluid to add to it.
The fluid should be checked when hot, not cold, but a smart mechanic will know how to check it correctly when cold.

2008 Toyota Tacoma-automatic. Transmission fluid was drained in error thinking it was oil outlet. Where does new transmission fluid go in? Manual does not provide this specific info.

Trans fluid goes in the same tube the transmission dipstick sticks into. You'll need a funnel with a narrow bottom opening (1/2" or less). Make sure you pour it in the transmission dipstick tube, and not the engine oil dipstick tube. ;)
Initially, try to add about 3/4 of the estimated amount that you accidentally drained, then slow fill the remainder while checking level at different stages.
Also, try not to overfill. Check fluid level often, with engine running, in park or neutral, as you re-fill it.

I bought a used 2008 mdx. i feel the shift between gears a whole lot. is that a problem with my transmission? my 2008 lexus rx350 feels very smooth, almost cvt, as a comparison.

Sorry, i cant really provide a solution without more details..
But i would say check the transmission fluid (assuming its an auto, since you said when it shifts)
If your transmission fluid is low, add some, then "Cycle" the fluid.
Start in your cars lowest gear (L or 1?) and keep it there for like 15 seconds. Then move up to gear 2, then (3?) or "D", then "N", then "R" then "P" with 15 seconds in between. The whole time your doing this, your holding the brake, and not moving. Your going from the lowest gear you can pick, to park. if your car has the manual mode and doest have "1 / L" or "2", put it in manual mode, keep it in first gear, tap to shift to second, and if it lets you go any higher, go to third, fourth, etc. with 15 seconds in between..
Do this anyways and see if it helps haha.. Good Luck!

How do i check the transmission fluid on a 2008 Pontiac G6 6 cylinder?

There are quite a few types of cars on the road with sealed automatic transmissions like your Pontiac. Yours will have a plug screwed into the front of the trans near the coolant lines. It has an 11 mm [7/16] head. Unscrew it then check the level by finding if the fluid is to the hole. It's topped off by removing a cap on top of the trans and adding fluid until it starts to run out the hole, with the engine off. Your owner's manual will list all this.
