I prefer ngk iradium plugs for these cars. for the trans, if it automatic, i like to see them about every 50 - 60 k. sounds early, but these cars tend to burn up the fluid. if its a manual, about every 80 k

Can you drain torque converter when changing transmission fluid on a 2004 pontiac vibe

Basicly just remove the bolts in the transmission oil pan, make sure you have a drain pan under it and leave a couple bolts in, loosen the remining bolts and let the oil drain then loosen and remove them slowly as oil will be draining out while you are doing it.

Change the filter and after cleaning the pan install a new gasket and put it back on. Do not tighten the bolts too tight because it will distort the gasket and it will leak.

Pour about 5 quarts of transmission fluid in the trannsmission and start it up, look for leaks, and finish filling it to the cold line on the dip stick. If there are no leaks run until its warmed up and make sure the fluid level is at the full hot line on the stick.

There is really no way to drain the converter.

What doe a tune up for a 2005 chev cavileir coup concest of

Your typical tune up will consist of changing your spark plug wires, spark plugs, air filter, coil wire, coil pack, oil change, transmission flush, radiator flushed, and breaks check. It would not hurt to have your injectors flushed as well. I hope this helps you out. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask.

My 2005 chevy impala recieved a code of P1070 and I am unsure of what that means. I could really use some help. I believe I need to change the spark plugs could this cause the problem I have?

Unfortunately not the best news: A P1870 code means the transmission reporting to the computer that something is slipping.

You could try flushing / changing the transmission fluid & resetting the computer, but transmission service could be in your near future.

Hope this helps.

How to change spark plugs

make sure your vehicle is off. pull the cap thats attached to the cable on top of the spark plug off. get a wrench, loosen the spark plug, take it out, put a new one in where the old one was, tighten it with the wrench (snug, not super tight) and put the cap that is attached to the cable back on.

How to change transmission oil in pontiac vibe

most cars do not have a drain plug for the trans fluid. You have to remove the entire trsnmission oil pan.You did not metion if this was a standard or automatic transmission. On standard transmission you will found a plug on the bottom on passenger side which are need to be unscrewed for a draining and screwed back before fill up, and fill up hole would be on driver side approximately on 2/5 from the bottom and could be with rubber plug or metal screwed in plug, and are used for both, fill up and level check.Do not forget to keep the car on even floor when checking or filling transmission. You can use funnel with house attached to it to fill up transmission.

Where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.
