    AUTOMATIC TRANS HAVE SOLENOIDS THAT SHIFT THE GEARS FROM REG TAKE OFF TILL IT REACHS A CERTAIN SPEED THEN THE ELECTRICAL SOLENOID SHIFTS THE GEARS TO MATCH THE SPEED BUT TRY REPLACING THE TRANS FILTER AND WHAT EVER AMOUNT OF TRANS OIL THAT WAS IN THE TRANS OIL PAN . PURCHASE THE TRANS FILTER AND IT COMES WITH THE PAN GASKET AS WELL . PLACE HI-TEMP SILICON ON THE OIL PAN ONLY BUT USE YOUR PAN BOLTS TO HOLD THE GASKET DOWN TILL IT STICKS IN PLACE AND LET YOUR TRANS DRIP IN OIL DISPENSING PAN BEFORE YOU TRY TO PLACE THE PAN BACK ON ABOUT A COUPLE OF HOURS THE SURFACE NEEDS TO BE CLEAN AND FREE OF TRANS OIL IN ORDER TO SEAL BUT DONT TORQ THE BOLT DOWN ON LIP TO WHERE IT PUTS A DENT ON IT CHECK YOUR REPAIR MANUEL ON POUNDS OF TORQ

Please do not have your transmission flushed , have someone take the oil pan off and replace the filter as well and what ever trans oil you take out replace it as well . no automotive repair shop will warrenty your trans if it should suddenly stop working , but just for your satisfaction ask the transmission repair shop who flushs trans if they guarantee it and have them put it in writing . ive never understood why flush dirty oil and leave the dirty filter in the trans , it collected all dirt and metal wear which is what is causing it to plug up causing it to restrict the oil flow

2003 CTS Automatic when i change gears from drive to park or park to drive i hear a clanking noise when i change the gears. If someone is standing there when you pull up and you put the car in park......


I had the same noise on my wife`s 03 cts. It was the the rubber bushing on the shifting arm from the shift lever to the trans. The arm was 250.00 plus I installed myself. Very easy to get to. Bad design should not have went bad.

Where is the transmission stick located on the 2004 CTS


Hello Lillian.
Your CTS does not have a dipstick to check the level.
There is a procedure for checking it but it needs to be done by lifting the car high and level to access a plug on the side of the transmission.
Here is the procedure.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL CHECKING PROCEDURE

  1. Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid normal operating temperature has been reached.
  2. Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
  3. Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. CAUTION: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
If you would like further advise on this matter, please ask me here in a comment.
Thank you for using FixYa.
