The transmission is sealed (no dipstick/fill tube). If fluid id needed you need to put the vehicle on a lift and access the fill plug from under the vehicle. The trans temperature must be monitored (by use of a special scanner) before filling or overfilling will damage the transmission resulting in early failure.

SOURCE: cant find where to add transmission fluid

on some of the newer cars they dont have dipsticks they have a plug near the pan that you have to pull on the trans to check the fluid level and to fill it there is a cap hidden on top of the trans by all the stuff you have to try to bend a funnel around to get in it. dont you love the engineers

SOURCE: where do i add transmission fluid to my pontiac g6

You can add transmission fluid to you transmission through the transmission fluid dipstick tube. Take your time and use the right size funnel, check and dubble check to make sure you don not over fill. Over filling the transmission is just as bad as not haveing enough fluid too.
Good luck and hope this helps

there is no dipstick. the fluid must be checked from under the vehicle. fluid must be at 209* f.
or trans will be overfilled. there is a plug on the right end of the trans( 7/16" )& must be removed with engine running, if at proper temp & fluid comes out then trans is full.

SOURCE: adding transmission fluid to a 2002 pontiac grand prix se

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...

SOURCE: how do you check/add transmission fluid to a 2004

Hello! To check the fluid level, the first thing you want to do is get the fluid to operating temperature, by driving it for a bit and letting it shift through all gears. Once you've done that you need to make sure you park the car on a very level surface. Remove the front passenger wheel and the splash guard. From there reference the picture below to give you an idea where the fluid check plug is located - there is no dipstick on this transmission (4T45e). You will also see the fill plug location.

If you do a pan drop and filter replacement only, the fill capacity is 6.9 quarts. You will want to use Dexron III type transmission fluid.

FYI - here are the torque specs for the pan bolts is 106 in/lbs and the check/fill plugs are both 124 in/lbs.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Their are two dipsticks under the hood one is motor oil it is brown in color. The transmission will be a little closer to the fire wall it will be red in color. Your car needs to be running to check trans fluid for an accurate reading. With motor oil your engine needs to be off for an accurate reading
