Question about 2001 Pontiac Sunfire
Front cross member has rusted thru. Whats next? can it be replaced or is the car scrap?
Anything can be replaced. the only question is. is it worth spending the money to do it? thats for you to decide. make some calls and get some quotes for the job. then decide if its worth spending it on your current car (taking into account its current condition. and anything else you might have to do to it the next few years) or using it to buy a newer one

Drain some of the coolant until you are sure it will not spill over when you remove the hose.
Remove the hose from the radiator .(Top) Hose. follow the hose to the thermostat housing. Remove the hose by removing the clamps.the thermostat is located in the housing. remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing. remove the housing. be careful to notice the position of the thermostat. Make sure you get the proper degree thermostat . Ask the vendor. give as much info as possible. mainly the size of the engine. remove the thermostat. You will get a new gasket with your new thermostat. Clean off the sufaces of the thermostat housing before installing the gasket.use a little grease to hold the gasket in place. and reinstall the new thermostat. replace housing and hose and refill with antifreeze/coolant. i hope this works for you and you vote for my answer.

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

Lock handbrake, loosen lug nuts, jack it up and set on axle stands and remove front wheels.
Unbolt the brake caliper, tie it up to the suspension arm with a zip tie etc. Don't let it hang loose on the brake lines. Unbolt the brake rotor from the hub. You might need a friend to stand on the brakes to keep the rotor from spinning.
Once the brake rotor is off, undo the center hub nut (usually a large bolt 22mm or bigger). Keep these in order when you remove them, the castle nut is next (looks like a little castle turret), washers, a lock nut and then finally the bearings are next. Clean out the aperture with a clean cloth.
Regrease the bearings and the inside of the hub. Refit the parts in the right order. Be gentle with the lock nut, it may take a few goes to get this right as it can be too loose or too tight, making the rotor (when it's back on) feel stiff to turn.
Refit the rotor, brake caliper (make sure the brake line is not crimped) and do the same for the other side if it is necessary. Refit wheels and take her for a spin.
Vote for me if this helps you. Thanks

SOURCE: How do you replace the
You need to replace more than the fluid, you need to change the filter. What happens is the filter can plug, and drop fluid pressure, then the clutches slip and burn.
You may want to consider having a lube shop, equiped with the T-Tech flush machine to do this job. If you drop the pan, you cannot drain the torque converter, cooling lines or cooling radiator. The t-tech machine puts in new fluid until clean fluid comes out...
