1997 pontiac sunfire no ****** dip stick how much fluid to put in


It will probably be easier to take it to a regular repair shop to have it checked. There is a small bolt that comes out to verify fluid level after it's warmed up and still running. It's too hard to describe where the level plug is located and it can be dangerous to check & fill without experience.

2005 pontiac sunfire 2.2 ecotec. when i put in drive i hear a loud bang and when driving has a quieter bang when shifts gears the motor mounts don't move much what could it be?


Sounds like transmission is low on fluid and gears are banging together when they shift. Probably should check the level and add to fill and hope that no damage has been done. I hope that helps you figure out your problem.

I have a 1997 pontiac sunfire with a manual transmission. I can not get the car to go into gear and the clutch pedal has no pressure. I saw that fluid is leaking out at the spot where the gear shifter...


The clutch system is hydraulic just like your brakes are. You have a slave cylinder and a master cylinder. You must have a leak somewhere, and will have to see what part it is, or have it looked at. Once replaced, the system needs to be bled of air just like brakes do.

Check automatic transmission fluid 2001 pontiac sunfire


You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.
