What are the symptoms of having low tranny fluid in a 2002 Oldsmobile alero

I also need a tune up, the car loses power and I have to let off gas and start pressing it again. It seems like the car isn't "catching" to speed up.

A low transmision fluid will will cause the transmision to slip . When you press the gas the engine will rev up ( while in Drive) but the car won't move or will move a little . If the fluid gets low enough it the car won't move at all.

SOURCE: Low Transmission Fluid in 2003 Oldsmobile Alero

  • This care does not have a dipstick but can easily be checked at home.

  1. 1. Warm the car up to running temperature.
  2. 2. Park it on a level surface.
  3. 3. Leave the car running and set the emergency /parking brake. Also set bricks in front and behind the wheels.
  4. 4. Look on the passenger side of the transmission (underneath the car)
  5. 5. You will see a 10mm bolt a little bit inward from the right axle on the transmission itself.
  6. 6. Have a drain pan ready and pull that bolt.
  7. 7. If fluid comes out it is full.
  8. 8. If no fluid comes out then add ATF III in the fill port on top of the transmission until the fluid just barely seeps out of that hole you removed the bolt from.
  9. 9. This port is on top of the transmission (under the hood) and is usually red or black in color.
  10. 10. The transmission is now full and ready to go.
  • Hope this helps.

Tranny slips until warms up then fine after that


Check for low trans fluid. I would consider changing the trans fluid, using a synthetic trans fluid, if you have more than 70,000 miles on the fluid.

2002 Oldsmobile Alero makes loud noises when turning


more than likely it is just low on power steering fluid. system might have air in it now. so after fill power steering unit to proper level driver the car and check fluid level again. and add more if needed . I believe car should have motor running for when checking fluid, same as transmission.

Where is the location for the transmission fluid on a 2000 oldsmobile alero


In the transmission pan underneath tranny. You should have a red dipstick on passenger side to check. Not all models have a dipstick, some you have to go under car, find the upper filler bolt on tranny, remove the bolt, stick your finger in there to check tranny fluid levels and add from there. You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual for your car.

Where is the transmission dip stick for 2002 alero


As was mentioned, there isn't one. There is a small bolt on the side of the transmission pan (facing the front of the car) that is pulled and checked by the service mechanic. If a few drops of tranny fluid are released when the bolt is pulled, there is adequate fluid in the transmission.

Your Alero does not have a transmission dip stick. You do not need to check it unless it starts leaking.
