Usually on the front side (standing in front of your Sunbird) the dipstick tip on GM cars is usually yellow...some rare models have the dipstick located inside of the oil filler cap...(attached to inside of the cap:) Hope this helps.

I have a 1999 Saturn sl model and NOWHERE can I find the dipstick to check the tranny. There is the yellow dipstick for the oil, but where the Chilton's guide tells me there should be a red dipstick for...


The Transmission has a check plug and a fill cap. The check plug is located just under the passenger side axle and has a 11 mm head on it. The fill cap is on top of the transmission just underneath the air cleaner box. the transmission must be ideling in park and be warm to the touch , not hot or cold. Fluid should drip from check plug when full.

HOW DO YOU TELL WHEN THE TRANSMISSION FLUID IS LOW IF YOUR CAR DONT HAVE A DIPSTICK UNDER THE HOOD


Sunfires have a setup like a manual transmission would, there is a plug in the side of the transmission that you have to remove wile car is running. then you run a long funnel down to a red screw cap on the top side of the transmission would be drivers side,slowly add trans fluid until it drips out the hole, replace the plug and you are done, it is not an easy job on the ground, works better on a hoist.

Where is the transmission dipstick on 1998 Pontiac Sunfire?


This model doesn't have a trans dipstick. To check trans fluid level there is a plug on the right side/passenger side above the transmission pan about 2 to 3 inches.The plug has an 11 or 12 mm head on it. Remove this plug while vehicle is running and at operating temperature if fluid comes out of the where the plug was then the level is adequate. To add transmission fluid there is a red or black plastic cap on top of the transmission on the driver side.You will need a transmission funnel to add to it if fluid is need.

Cant find dip stick for tranny fluid 2004 sunfire


GM went to sealed transmissions. That car doesn't have a transmission dipstick.

There's a fill bolt that needs to be removed from the transmission while the car is on a level surface. If transmission fluid comes out, then you're at the proper level. Otherwise fill until fluid starts to come out. (Similar to what would be done on a manual transmission)

Look at the top of the transmission for a little red cap(like the oil fill cap) this is where you add fluid. If you want to check fluid condition, you need to remove cap and stick something in there and smear the fluid on a piece of paper to see color.

Hope this helps you out

I have a 1999 bmw 323i. i need to know where the oil filter is and where to put the transmission fluid.


the oil filter is right in the middle of the engine (between the intake and valve cover gasket) near the radiator it has a 36mm cap over the top of it. the transmission doesn't have a dipstick. the fluid must be checked through a fill plug (transmission must be cool and vehicle running) would not attempt in driveway with vehicle on jackstands

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.

Changing radiator


Does the car have a transmission dipstick? Look on the passenger side of the engine compartment towards the firewall to find the dipstick tube. If it has a dipstick there will be a square top on it with a locking mechanism. Run car to normal operating temerature, unlock the dipstick pull it out wipe it off push it back in and pull it back out then look to see if the fluid is between the marks. If not just add fluid through the tube.  If you don't have a dipstick there will be a smaller cap with  red plastic lock on it. You will have to break the red lock to get the cap off. There is a special tool from Mercedes to check the level on these non dipstick units. If you think it is low then add 1 quart and road test for proper operation and shifting.
