I assume you meant flush, not brush? I would not flush the transmission on one that old, unless you have a specific problem and were advised by a mechanic or tech to get a flush, to see if it would remedy the problem. It would be better to do a drain and transmission filter replacement, then put the pan back on, refill the tranny- about 6 quarts will drain-and then run the car, see if that helps. You have replaced about half the fluid with a drain and refill, if you do it a second time (drain and refill), then you have replaced the majority of your fluid. Only about 20 to 30% of the fluid is the remaining old fluid, most of it is new fluid.

I would do this before considering a flush. Flushing can dislodge long- standing gunk or particles that weren't a problem, and they may wind up clogging the valve body or pump, instead of getting flushed completely away.

Another advantage to the drain and refill, the first time you drop the pan to drain the fluid, now is your chance to look very close at the amount of metal shavings in the bottom of the pan. The more severe wear your transmission has, the more metal shavings will be collected there. If it is free of metal shavings, the transmission is probably very good.

There is not your typical dipstick but underneath the hood about half way to the fire wall is where you put it in. If you unscrew the cap and fluid drips off if it does not you need more.

Your Alero does not have a transmission dip stick. You do not need to check it unless it starts leaking.


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

SOURCE: transmission dipstick

Your car has a sealed transmission, no dipstick, the fluid is checked with an electronic scan tool when it is at the proper temperature through an access port on top of trans. The reason they do this is to keep owners from overfilling the trans, very common problem and can ruin the transmission.

SOURCE: how do you check a 2004 alero transmission fluid

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.

2004 olds alero transmission fluid how much to fill up


fill it to just above the low level , check it while it is running, (in park) ;-) on a level surface. drive it around the block to warm up the trans, check it again, if it is still low then add some to the full line, check again while running. (don't add fluid when running) it should stay at the full mark at this point.

How many qts of oil in a 94 oldsmobile cutless 3.4 v6


If this is the 4 cam engine I rememeber it being 5.5 quarts.After draining the oil,refill with 5.5 quarts,start it up for a minute,shut it off,wait a minute,and check it on the dipstick.If it still needs a little,this additional amount plus 5.5 is the total.(Don't worry,a little over or under won't blow it up).

I CANT FIND THE TRANSMISSION FLUID REFILL PLACE ON THE CAR


You fill trans fluid through dipstick tube. Take out dipstick, use funnel, pour in fluid, check once in a while so you dont overfill.

I need to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 alero (4 cylinder),however I am unable to locate the dipstick to check the level. Where is it or how many quarts should I add.


Technically there is no dipstick as there was on other vehicles.Your vehicle may have a little cap that screws into the transmission. under that cap is the little dipstick. However some vehicles do not have this cap. Causing you to take the vehicle to a shop where they can flush the fluid using a machine that they hook up to the transmission cooler lines. This machine takes out all the nasty fluid that is left behind by a regular filter or drain and fill. Usually when you change the filter or perform a drain and fill you replace about 4-5 quarts. as this machine can replace up to 16 quarts, depending on the transmission. You cannot get this much out of the transmission by draining it. there is still some left in the passage ways and torque converter. i have used the machine myself on all of my vehicles and they will guaratee that the whole transmission will be cpmpletely filled with brand new clean fluid.
