All Automatic Transmissions are filled by the "Dip Stick Tube", which requires the use of a "Dip Stick Funnel". You can buy one at your local auto store or Walmart. CAUTION: Always check tranny fluid level with engine running and warmed to full operating temperature. MAKE SURE NOT TO OVER FILL!!! Over filling can cause damage to the tranny. Final note: ONLY manual transmissions are filled from under the vehicle via the tranny plug.

You either have to fill it through the transmission dip stick if it is equipped with one, or you need tho crawl under the car and look at the side of the transmission and you should see a plug looking bolt which you will have to remove and fill through there till it runs out that plug hole

Transmission fluid pressure


The transmission is probably WAY overfilled. If you are trying to "check" or "top-off" the fluid level by removing the FILL/VENT CAP and looking in, then that is most likely the case.

The fluid is checked on that transmission by placing the vehicle on a hoist and removing the CHECK PLUG with the engine running. The fluid should just barely dribble out from the check plug when it is checked. Please note from the diagram below, that the check plug is UNDER the vehicle iand is WAY below the FILL/VENT CAP.

Trying to locate spout to add tran fluid or gear oil


  • If this is a manual transmission you will have to get underneath the car and on the transmission you will see two big plugs. This check is performed with the vehicle off.
  1. 17mm or 18mm.
  2. Top plug is the fill plug and the Bottom plug is the drain.
  3. You will need a funnel with a hose attached to it.
  4. Pull the top plug out and fill until the fluid just barely comes out and that is the proper fill.
  5. Plug the hole with the fill plug. Job complete.
  • If it's a manual it will have a dip stick or it may have a cap on top of the transmission that is commonly referred to as a "sealed transmission."
  1. Put the emergency brake on.
  2. Put the car in neutral.
  3. The check for this is a 10mm plug on the transmission. Again this has to be accessed under the car.
  4. Pull that little plug and if fluid comes out then it is full.
  5. If nothing comes out then add fluid where you removed the cap until it comes out and plug the transmission.
  6. Replace transmission refill cap.
  7. Job complete.

What type of trans. fluid does it take and how do i know when its full


Transmission Fluid Fluid Level Checking & Filling To Check:
  1. Connect a scan tool to the vehicle to read ATF temperature. ATF checking temperature should be 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C).
  2. Start the engine.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  5. Allow the ATF temperature to reach 95° - 113°F (35° - 45°C). Automatic transmission fluid inspection plug vw-07-00-7273.gif

  6. Remove the inspection plug from the transmission housing. Fluid is pipe will run out. If fluid continues to drip out, no additional fluid is needed. If only the fluid in the overflow pipe runs out, additional fluid is needed.
To Fill:

  1. Pry the cap from the filler pipe. The cap locking device will be destroyed during removal.
  2. Pull the plug from the filler pipe.
  3. Add fluid slowly with VAG 1924 or equivalent until fluid runs out of the inspection hole. Install the inspection hole plug.
  4. Install the plug in the filler pipe and secure with a new cap.

Trying to find were to check and see if i need more transmissin fluid in my 2002 pontiac grandamGT


To check the transmission fluid level in your car you have to raise the vehicle up and take out the transmission fluid check plug in the transmission. It is locate just below and forward (Towards the front of the car) of where the right axle goes into the transmission housing. To fill it take the plug out then remove the red cap located on the upper side of the transmission housing. You will need a long funnel to add the fluid. Add fluid until it can be seen dripping out of the check plug under the car. Then replace the cap and reinstall the plug. (There is no dipstick on your car)

Cant find dip stick for tranny fluid 2004 sunfire


GM went to sealed transmissions. That car doesn't have a transmission dipstick.

There's a fill bolt that needs to be removed from the transmission while the car is on a level surface. If transmission fluid comes out, then you're at the proper level. Otherwise fill until fluid starts to come out. (Similar to what would be done on a manual transmission)

Look at the top of the transmission for a little red cap(like the oil fill cap) this is where you add fluid. If you want to check fluid condition, you need to remove cap and stick something in there and smear the fluid on a piece of paper to see color.

Hope this helps you out

How do you check a 2004 alero transmission fluid


2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.

How do you check the transmission fluid -wheres the dip stick


According to the manual if the transmission is leaking fluid or shifting incorrectly take it to the dealer. Other than that the service interval for filter and fluid change is 100,000 miles. There is a 7/16 plug on the transmission case you have to be under the car to see it. it is located on the backside near the right axel. You take it out and put in transmission fluid till it comes out the plug hole. The fill plug is accessed from engine compartment,you will need a long funnel to fill. It's a must take it to a Dealer for service unless you want to try to service it your self. Good luck friend. 
Here is how you add fluid:Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid temperature has reached the value specified. 
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range. Remove the fluid vent cap. 
Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. Caution: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening. 

Remove the transmission oil level control plug.147643_trans_1.jpg this trans only has a fluid vent cap that you can unscrew to add fluid.
