SOURCE: I dont know where to

You do not say whether it is an automatic or standard ,and also is it a 4 or 6 cylinder????. If it is a 6 cylinder with autpmatic there is no dipstick,only a RED cap on the drivers side of the engine.It is a little hard to see but if you look straight down under where the air tube is that comes from the air box it is there.It is a little tricky to get to but it just unscrews and the fluid shoud be to the top. Get a flashlight and check. Normally these will not loose fluid unless there is a leak.You will need a funnel with a long hose to put fluid in,and make sure the fluid is for a GM ONLY.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: where do i put the transmission fluid in my alero 2001?

The only way to check the level is to get under the vehicle and loosen a bolt attached to the transmission. You fill the transmission until fluit comes out the bolt hole The only way to put transmission fliud in is on the drivers side of the engine. There is a lid that screws off that you put the fluid into. It is not visible and is a pain to get to. It is tucked in under other parts of the engine. You have to use a flexible funnel. I strongly suggest that if you are going to perform this yourself, you spend the $25.00 and buy the book on the vehicle from a local parts store.

SOURCE: how do you check transmission fluid on a 2001

If this is the one without a dipstick and just a cap on the trannie, then it's tough. I believe the "proper" procedure is to do it by having the dealer measure trannie temperature under certain conditions.
For me, I just added a bit at a point when I had some slipping occurring.

HOW TO PUT TRANSITION FLUID IN 2000 ALERO


For the V6 model, there is a red cap on top of the transmission. With the hood up looking at the engine, it would be on the right side on top of the transmission, there is no dipstick.

CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID SOUND LIKE VECHICLE SLIPPING DUE TO LACK OF FLUID. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID ON DIP STICK. WHILE ENGINE COLD FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD FULL MARK.CRANK ENGINE LET VECHICLE IDLE TO WARM.THEN HOLD FOOT ON BRAKE SHIFT THROUGH ALL GEARS FEW TIMES CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU GET TO FULL MARK.IF YOU HAVE THE TRANSMISSION WITH NO DIP STICK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER. YOU NEED 7 QUARTS OF TRANSMISSION FLUID.BUY DEALERSHIP TRANSMISSION PAN GASKET ITS THICKER MADE DIFFERENT WONT LEAK FLUID. THE TRANSMISSION GASKETS AT AUTO PARTS STORES TOO THIN LEAK FLUID BAD.

I CANT FIND THE TRANSMISSION FLUID REFILL PLACE ON THE CAR


You fill trans fluid through dipstick tube. Take out dipstick, use funnel, pour in fluid, check once in a while so you dont overfill.

Where is the location for the transmission fluid on a 2000 oldsmobile alero


In the transmission pan underneath tranny. You should have a red dipstick on passenger side to check. Not all models have a dipstick, some you have to go under car, find the upper filler bolt on tranny, remove the bolt, stick your finger in there to check tranny fluid levels and add from there. You can go to autozone.com and register for full free online repair manual for your car.

I need to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 alero (4 cylinder),however I am unable to locate the dipstick to check the level. Where is it or how many quarts should I add.


Technically there is no dipstick as there was on other vehicles.Your vehicle may have a little cap that screws into the transmission. under that cap is the little dipstick. However some vehicles do not have this cap. Causing you to take the vehicle to a shop where they can flush the fluid using a machine that they hook up to the transmission cooler lines. This machine takes out all the nasty fluid that is left behind by a regular filter or drain and fill. Usually when you change the filter or perform a drain and fill you replace about 4-5 quarts. as this machine can replace up to 16 quarts, depending on the transmission. You cannot get this much out of the transmission by draining it. there is still some left in the passage ways and torque converter. i have used the machine myself on all of my vehicles and they will guaratee that the whole transmission will be cpmpletely filled with brand new clean fluid.

Transmission dipstick


Your car has a sealed transmission, no dipstick, the fluid is checked with an electronic scan tool when it is at the proper temperature through an access port on top of trans. The reason they do this is to keep owners from overfilling the trans, very common problem and can ruin the transmission.
