Loosen the rear bolts slowly on the pan. Start there and loosen towards the front and let the fluid drain until you can get the pan completly off and drain the rest of the fluid

With no dipstick, you should find a plug,( 7/16",under vehicle to see it) on the backside of casing near right axle, for checking/filling fluid, but other than that, remove the pan. Might want to do filter as well, when pan is off, if it hasn't been done in a while.

Heres the best solution....take off bolts around transmission pan. drain fluid, put in new seal and filter then bolt back up to torque specs. step 2. add fluid start engine. your next job is to drain the converter so you have fresh and clean fluid throughout the whole tranny. so heres how you do that. the bottom transmission line enters your radiator at the bottom this is the "retun line". loosen this line up and get a clean piece of hose that slips over the line snuggly. you will need about 4 feet of clear hose (can get at autozone or lowes or home depot) and a bucket/clear jug (about 2 -3 gallon clear jug. next ask a buddy to start the engine put their foot on the break and put tranny into drive while holding the foot on the brake. the torque converter will start pumping the old/black fluid out. watch the fluid till it starts turning a fresh red color. when that happens you have now flushed the system totally. during this procedure you may have to add fluid as the torque converter continues to pump out old fliud. when fluid starts running red then stop car engine put back in park and reconnect lower tranny line to radiator. you just saved yourself 200-300 bucks. a real easy job but can be a little messy. i just did this to my sons grand am. good luck!!!

How to change transmission oil in 2000 Pontiac grand am


You have two choices, you can either take it to a shop and have it power flushed, recommended because this gets rid of all the fluid and replaces it with new fluid. The second is to drop the transmission pan, most cars don't have a drain plug for transmission fluid, so you would need to take out all the bolts holding the transmission pan out slowly letting the fluid drain as you bring the pan down. After you have the pan off I would go ahead and change the transmission filter, it is just above the pan inside the transmission. Place the pan back onto the transmission and fill with fluid, about 6-8 quarts.

On the 2000 Grand Prix, is the oil pan the one in front, or is that the transmission fluid pan?


The one in front should be the oil pan, the transmission pan is stamped steel and sort of "L" shaped, starting on the drivers side and wrapping around behind the engine oil pan. The trans pan also does not have a drain plug, where the engine oil pan does.

Where is the drain plug on a 1994 pontiac grand am?


below is a picture of the oil pan that is where the oil drain plug is will be directly on the botton of oil pan on the driver side.

3abfbea.jpg' now if you meant something else like the radiator drain plug On some models of the Pontiac Grand Am, there is no drain plug. In this case, you will need to remove the lower radiator hose and use this to drain the radiator.
An if you meant the transmission youd have to tell me what transmission you have and i will go look in the manual right now for you.

if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you.

Loss of power steering in my 1996 Grand AM


What you've said is possible but likely there was some pump damage when you originally had the hose leak. Manufacturers have always said to use P/S fluid in steering pumps but within the past ten years this has become more critical to the point that I now would never "cheat" and use trans oil.
If you remove the return hose and drain system (running), then re-fill with p/s oil you MAY regain function, but it's not a 100% chance.
If you do this, make sure you bleed air out by turning wheels all the way left, then all way right and checking fluid level each time till oil level stablizes. If some performance is restored, repeat in about one week. If not, replace the pump.
