Check your owner's manual. It will tell you exactly how to check any and all fluids for your vehicle. Any mechanic shop or oil change place should be able to help you with that or even do it for you (normally free of charge). Generally speaking, transmission fluid is checked with the engine warmed up and running however it is not the case for all vehicles. For many standard transmission vehicles there is no way to check the fluid unless you pull out a plug and stick your finger inside (engine off of course!).

Good luck and Blessings!

My 2008 Chevy HHR shifts hard from 1st to 2nd and will not go into overdrive


The first thing I'd check is the level of the transmission fluid. Make sure the vehicle is level, and is up to normal operating temperature. Check It while it is running. If it's low, there's your problem. If it's okay, then you may need to change the transmission fluid and filter. The transmission filter is similar to a filter on an A/C unit. Like a screen to catch the junk in the fluid. It's located inside the transmission pan on the bottom of the vehicle. If you do it yourself, make sure you use the right type of transmission fluid. Filters and fluid are relatively inexpensive to replace.
With all of that being said, all of that information was for an automatic transmission. Not for a standard transmission. If your transmission fluid level is okay, and doesn't need changing. Take heart, that doesn't mean you're looking at a complete transmission replacement either.

Where do I check my transmission fluid in my 2008 Chevy cobalt?


On the passenger side. It's under the car. Look where the axle goes into the transmission. To the right of it is an 11 mm plug to remove. Start the car, let it warm up. The car has to be level. with the car running, Remove the plug, fluid should come out in a small stream or steady drip.

I have a 2007 chevy colbolt. the t/c light comes on while driving.


You will have to have the car scanned with an appropriate scanner
that can read traction control and abs system. It most likely has a bad wheel speed sensor but you'll need to get it checked to know for sure.

No that temperature is not too hot for your engine. The system is apperntly kicking in at 240 from what your saying and then it starts to cool itself down. One of your fans may be going bad if you keep blowing fuses.

How to check the transmission fluid on 08 chevy colbolt


On the Cobalt the car maker says that the fluid level only needs to be checked when the fluid is drained or when you have an obvious leak.If the fluid were to go low it would slip or you would loose drive.If you put to much fluid could foam and cause fluid loss.I would recommend that you take it to a shop and let them check it since the check plug is under the car.

How to check transmission fluid level


Unfortunately you can not. Chevy put sealed transmissions on most of their cars starting in 2006. It would be out of luck if you got one without a sealed transmission. If you did, look behind the engine on the passenger side for a dipstick similar to your oil dipstick. If you dont see one, you will have to go to the dealership to have it checked.

How do you check the transmission fluid level on a 2008 Chevy Cobalt??


The transmission is sealed. It is intended the fluidis to never need to be checked or changed. The dealer has a probe to check this function.
