Question about 2003 Pontiac Grand Am
According to the manual if the transmission is leaking fluid or shifting incorrectly take it to the dealer. Other than that the service interval for filter and fluid change is 100,000 miles. There is a 7/16 plug on the transmission case you have to be under the car to see it. it is located on the backside near the right axel. You take it out and put in transmission fluid till it comes out the plug hole. The fill plug is accessed from engine compartment,you will need a long funnel to fill. It's a must take it to a Dealer for service unless you want to try to service it your self. Good luck friend.
Here is how you add fluid:Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified.
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range. Remove the fluid vent cap.
Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. Caution: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.
Remove the transmission oil level control plug. this trans only has a fluid vent cap that you can unscrew to add fluid.

there is no dip stick you have a fill plug and drain plug.the fill plug is the one higher up on the trans case. take out the fill plug and if it runs out the hole or you can touch the gear lube with tip of your finger in the fill hole its full. have a great day.

there is a plug on the bottom of the trans right next to the engine i think its an 11mm. you have to remove it with the engine hot and running, and add fluid until it starts coming out that hole.

SOURCE: how do I check the
The transmission is considered a "fill for life" servicable by dealer only, in other words there is no dipstick. The superduty is the only style with a dipstick. no dipstick in the explorer either.
