Where is the drain plug for the transmisson

Many vehicles do not have a drain plug for the automatic transmission. This is due to the fact that they do not require fluid changes very often, and when you do change the fluid, you need to change the filter or clean the screen, whichever it has. Therefore, to drain transmission fluid from most cars, it is necessary to remove the transmission pan. This allows the fluid to drain and gains access to the filter/screen. Also, it prevents accidental draining of the transmission when the novice is attempting to do an oil change.

Need to find where transmisson fluid pan is 2002 mazda 626 trying to change trans fluid & filter

  • If this is a manual then the filter on this transmission is inside the transmission and is not serviceable unless you want to pull the entire transmission and open it. You will have two plugs on the transmission. One right above the other. Pull the top plug FIRST and then the bottom plug and wait for the transmission to drain. After it drains plug the bottom hole and fill the transmission until fluid just barely seeps out the top. Then plug the top hole and this is a transmission flush on this type of transmission.

  • If this is an automatic transmission then the filter is under the transmission pan itself. Drop the pan then the filter. Clean off old gasket and install new gasket. Place new filter in and replace the pan and snug the pan bolts up. Not to tight just snug them good. Then fill the transmission with a couple quarts of fluid and turn the car on, put your foot on the brake and run the car through all gears to fill the pockets. Check fluid level and adjust accordingly.

  • If you have any questions or comments you can leave them right here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

How much oil goes in the transmisson?

if you do it yourself, about 4 to 6 quarts. If a shop does it they will use a machine and use about 12. Its capacity is about 10 to 11 It all does not drain out when you just drop the pan or remove the plug.

How do you check tansmission fluid level in 2002 sunfire? 2.2 engine

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.

Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

Where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.
