Question about 2001 Saturn L-Series
02/'03 L200/L300's don't have
transmission dipsticks most likely reflecting Saturn's confidence of a
leak-free transmission, leaving only a red fill cap on the
transmission. The actual method for checking transmission level is a
very abnormal method; parking on a level surface, removing the
transmission oil level bolt/cap from the transmission, observing
whether or not fluid flows out. Excess fluid will flow out
automatically establishing the proper level and amount of transmission
fluid. Less would mean topping off by pouring some into the top access
fill hole and observing if fluid flows out the leveled drain hole until
fluid flows out. This would indicate proper levels and replacing the
top and access plug is all that's necessary. Messy as compared to the
old method. The access bolt will be sized differently from the other
bolts holding the transmission sump on. I would assume your '01 L200 is
the same. Use regular Dexron ATF red transmission fluid.
