What do you need to know?If your car is a automatic transmission,then start and let warm up and put in park and check while running,if low,turn off and add,then start and check,use funnel at dipstick hole.If manual transmission,there's a plug on side of transmission,remove plug and see if you can see fluid,put finger in to feel,to add,get a turkey baster,dollar store has them,fill till it comes out.The drain plug is under transmission.
YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE DIP STICK.IT HAS A VENT FILL CAP WHERE YOU POUR TRANSMISSION FLUID.YOUR VECHICLE HAS TO RAISED LEVEL WITH A FLOOR LIFT. WHILE ENGINE RUNNING A CHECK PLUG ON TRANSMISSION AXLE HOUSING TRANSMISSION.CHECK PLUG IS ABOVE THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG. YOU REMOVE CHECK PLUG WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF NO DRIP ADD A PINT FLUID TO GET LEVEL RIGHT.IF YOU GET A SLOW DRIP FLUID LEVEL OKAY.IF FLUID POUR OUT CHECK PLUG HOLE TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.THIS TYPE OF TRANSMISSION THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID.
Automatic Transmission,4T45-E......AF6 Automatic Transmission,4T40-E......AF6 Use Low Viscosity ATF, Hight Viscosity ATF or additives create fluid retention which cause the servos, solenoids to seize up causing shifting problems.
2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.
You may have a dipstick leading to your transmission fluid somewhere in your engine bay.
Alternatively, you'll have to get under the car and look transmission. There will be two plugs. One will be located near the bottom of the transmission (drain plug) and one will be located somewhere up the upper half of the transmission (fill plug). When you open the fill plug, some transmission fluid should leak out. If it does, then it's full. If it doesn't leak out, you'll need to fill it until it does start to leak out and then put the plug back on
I dont believe that car has a trans dip stick there is a bolt underneath that you remove while engine is running if you see trans fluid flowing it is full not sure how to explain exactly where it is if you have not done it I dont recomend trying
i presume that is a front wheel drive. look beside the motor at the transaxale (transmission) for a dipstick... the fluid is added into the same hole the dipstick goes... you'll need a funnel..... incidentally atf type transmission fluid is for fords .... might want to check your owners manual for the correct type you should use.
