Well first Check to see if you need it than add if needed 99 Pontiac dip stick shouldn't be that expensive before you add the fluid when it wasn't necessary as it could cost a lot to repair your transmission hope this helps

SOURCE: checking transmission fluid level on 2005 c230 kompressor mb

what fluid did you want to check? oil, coolant, transmission, brake? let me know and maybe i can help. the leak you currently see what color is the fluid? black or dark brown probably enigne oil. red or dark brown probably some kind of hydraulic fluid--trans or brake, yellow, green or blue with a sickly sweet smell is probably coolant. i haven't worked on a c230 but as far as i know all transmissions have a dipstick where you can check the level. check your owner's manual. make sure the car is warmed up such as after a short drive to properly circulate and check the trans fluid. some cars also require the transmission to be placed in a specific position ie neutral when being checked. again check your owners manual.

to the guy that was critical about your question, i hope he stays as dumb and ignorant about his/her car as he seems as with his/her attitude--just keep bringing it to servcie, that way i can keep making a lot of money out of you. i actually prefer an owner who knows a litlte some thing about their car and how it works--it makes the job easier in communicating to me what may be wrong and thus i can save them time and money. we both win. just don't tell me what you think it is--just tell me the symptoms are, as a professional it's my job to figure it out from there. hope this helps.

I am not sure which engine you have on your 202 Grand Prix, but if you have the most common 3800 V6 this is where it should be. Look at the back of the engine compartment just to the left of the plastic master cylinder resevoir.
Here is a picture you can look at...

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to 1992 BMW 525i.

On the driver side of the transmission pan there is a fill plug. The car must be in the air and level. With the car running fluid will run out of the plug hole when it is full. This is no fun without a lift.

SOURCE: how do you check/add transmission fluid to a 2004

Hello! To check the fluid level, the first thing you want to do is get the fluid to operating temperature, by driving it for a bit and letting it shift through all gears. Once you've done that you need to make sure you park the car on a very level surface. Remove the front passenger wheel and the splash guard. From there reference the picture below to give you an idea where the fluid check plug is located - there is no dipstick on this transmission (4T45e). You will also see the fill plug location.

If you do a pan drop and filter replacement only, the fill capacity is 6.9 quarts. You will want to use Dexron III type transmission fluid.

FYI - here are the torque specs for the pan bolts is 106 in/lbs and the check/fill plugs are both 124 in/lbs.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Adding transmission fluid


Add transmission fluid to the same tube you check the transmission fluid level. It will resemble the oil dipstick tube, only it's a larger tube that will accommodate a funnel to add additional fluid. It's important not to overfill the recommended level so try adding 1/2 quart at a time until the level is withing the markings on the transmission fluid dipstick.

My Pontiac Grand Am Does Not Have A Transmission Dipstick Thats Visual... How Do I Change The Fluid?....


Sorry, but if you can't find the dipstick don't try to change the fluid.

If you want to add fluid, that's a bit of a trick too. The dipstick should be right over the top of the transaxle toward the front on either the left or right side. Once you have it located, start the car on level ground. Pull the dipstick out and wipe it clean, first noting the color and smell. It should have a petroleum smell and a good clean reddish/pink color. If it is dark and smells like it is burnt, it will need to be changed - but first check the level by putting it back in the stem and then pulling it out and checking the level. If it is to the full mark and meets the color/smell test, you're done. If it is clean but below the mark, check the owners manual for the type of fluid to add (part store can tell you too) and add a small amount until you get to the full cold mark. If you drive to the parts store and then add fluid, feel the fluid to see if it is warm or hot (carefully) as this will determine if you fill to the cold mark or the hot mark. The fluid expands and turns to foam if you put too much in so you may want to add a little and check it to avoid adding too much.

Trying to find were to check and see if i need more transmissin fluid in my 2002 pontiac grandamGT


To check the transmission fluid level in your car you have to raise the vehicle up and take out the transmission fluid check plug in the transmission. It is locate just below and forward (Towards the front of the car) of where the right axle goes into the transmission housing. To fill it take the plug out then remove the red cap located on the upper side of the transmission housing. You will need a long funnel to add the fluid. Add fluid until it can be seen dripping out of the check plug under the car. Then replace the cap and reinstall the plug. (There is no dipstick on your car)

Adding power steering fluid


Locating the Power Steering reservoir and adding PS fluid. 1999 Pontiac GP


  • The reservoir is clearly visible in the engine bay on the 3.1 litre engine cars.
  • For the 3.8 Ltr engine cars, use a flashlight to look down past the alternator for a black cap with a steering wheel printed on it to indicate the power steering fluid reservoir. ( passenger side of the vehicle).
  • Remove the cap of the power steering reservoir, clean the dipstick, re-insert and remove again to check the fluid level. If the level is at or below the low level mark, add fluid slowly, taking care not to fill above the MAXIMUM mark. It's best to add small amounts and re-check the level as you go to ensure you do not overfill the reservoir above the MAX level.
  • ONLY use the power steering fluid recommended for that vehicle by GM.

    I need to check and put in transmission fluid in my 1999 grand marquis


    Under the hood there will be a dipstick marked for transmission. You need to check the fluid level while the engine is running. If you need to add fluid, you use a funnel and pour the fluid in through dipstick tube.
