SOURCE: 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.

2001 pontiac sunfire will not hold any antifreeze, why and whats wrong with my car????


General advice:U must track the leak .How much it takes to loose the coolant?.If the coolant shows under the car must identify the tubes clamps that need tighten or replace.If a radiator related problem need clean/solder/replace.If leaky water pump,replace.If no trace of coolant ceck the oil.If is color altered(milky)u have a head gasket ahead (with head revision)or a broken engine block/piston cyclinder.If the oil is ok,ceck the smoke:whity smoke means coolant in the pistons head.Again best guess:head gasket (can leak also in the intake manifold).Very rare coolant shows in some cars in the power stearing oil (!?) track the tubes.Tip:colored coolant (green...)is better visible in leaks.Tip:water coolant may show rusty spots where dissapearing (radiator,expansion deposit,pitched tube).Hope u deal it.Cheers.

Changed head gasket and now wont start at all. When i go to start it back fires out of the throtle body. Is this my timing?


Sure sounds like your timing, or it can do this if you didn't properly adjust the valves when putting the head back on.

2000 pontiac sunfire replaced head gasket now it still wont start, it just backfires


It sounds like a timing issue. Make sure the cam shafts and timing belt are installed correctly. Hopefully you have not belt any valves while trying to start it. Good luck.

I need to know torque specs and torque pattern for a 2001 head gasket on my 2001 sunfire


HINT: The "torque pattern" on ALL cylinder heads is start in the center and work your way toward the ends. The specifications below are "torque-to yield" or "torque angle" specs. When in doubt, about 65 Ft. Lbs. will work on pretty much ANY aluminum head. The main point is to get them EVEN to prevent warpage.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire is dumping antifreeze out the overflow. Could it be something other than thermostat?


Common causes include: leak from engine, hoses, etc. causing overheat due to low coolant, electric fan not coming on, internally obstructed radiator, external obstruction to radiator (leaves paper. plastic bag on front of radiator of stuck between radiator and A/C condenser), bad thermostat and last, blown head gasket. Proper testing for any and all these conditions will give you the answer you are looking for. If the antifreeze is overflowing without any overheat, it can either be over-full, or in some cases, a head gasket can do this by filling the cooling system with exhaust and driving the coolant out.
