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

    You do NOT need to check the transimmission fluid in a Pontiac torrent it is self maintained, The only time you need to worry about transmission fluid is if there is a leak.

My husband changed the transmission fluid in my 2006 mercury Monterey he put in 7 guarts of fluid after wards and its not even showing on the stick does this sound right?

He either added the trans fluid to the engine oil or he is checking the wrong dipstick. CHECK THE ENGINE OIL LEVEL to see that the trans fluid is not in the engine. If the engine oil is full of trans fluid, do NOT START the car and now you need to change the engine oil and also add the trans fluid to the trans. If engine opil is ok, be sure to find correct dip stick for trans fluid. They should be marked accordingly.

How to add transmission fluid to 2006 Pontiac torrent

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.

Where is a dipstick for the automatic transmission fluid level located on 2006 Torrent

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.
