Question about 2005 Pontiac Grand Am
If you car's trans is the 4T45E trans then there will be no dipstick, there is a *fill plug* located on the converter housing. The *level* plug is at the back of the trans down near the end of the tailshaft next to the passenger side axleshaft. Pull out the level plug and look to see if there is any sign of fluid at the bottom of the port. If not, add fluid thru the port on the top of the converter housing until fluid begins to seep out the level plug port.

the red plug on the bell housing is wear you put it in .but to check it is a pain in the ****.on the passenger side of the of the transmission.by the cv shaft is a 1/4" plug or it takes a 7/16 socket.whith the car running and not jacked up pull the plug.if fluid runs out it is full. if no fluid leaks out it is low.the car must be level when you check it . if it is low have a friend to poor it in while you watch it .when it starts coming out put the plug back in.do not shut it off with the plug out or it will leak the fluid out,what will they think of next

To check the trans fluid you have to have car on a lift or over a pit (like at oil change place) so it is level.
On the lower pass. side of trans. right near the rt. front drive axle there is a small plug (takes 7/16" wrench) Pull plug and fuild should run out W/ engine hot and running.
If you need to add there is a red cap on the driver side top of the trans right at the back of the engine. Unscrew cap and fill thru small hole.

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.

I am not sure which engine you have on your 202 Grand Prix, but if you have the most common 3800 V6 this is where it should be. Look at the back of the engine compartment just to the left of the plastic master cylinder resevoir.
Here is a picture you can look at...
I hope I was able to assist you!
