Hello kino26763: You can locate the fuel filter at the rear of the car. You will need to raise the car so you can get under it. Be sure to use safety stands for your protection. The filter will be just in front of the rear axle. Passenger side at the gas tank. Should be a small round cylinder looking can.There should be three fuel lines coming off of the filter.
If this helps please rate the information supplied. This helps us insure you received the right help. Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using FixYa. Roger

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak
checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

SOURCE: transmission fluid on 06 equinox
Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

jack the car up and remove the trans pan (12 bolts I think), inside you will find the filter replace it, after u finish refill with the exact same amount of fluid (about 3-4 quarts of Dexron 6 ATF) and then recheck hot, don't overfill...

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.
