You can check the tranny fluid by raising the car evenly and removing the check bolt on the side of the transaxle, if it dribbles out a little, its fine, if not you need to add fluid (through the red cap you found)

Key wont turn front or back in my pontiac grand am 95 it was working fine in the morn then went to turn my car on at lunch and key wouldnt turn any advice?

sometimes if the steering wheel locked with pressure on it ( like being parked on an incline with the wheels turned or with the front tires against a curb the steering wheel locking pin will make it difficult to turn the ignition not saying this is in your case can also try wiggling the keep in and out up and down (gently as to not snap the key off) while try to turn it forward

I have a 2003 grand am 4cyl i have three codes PO137,PO141, PO442 and since i parked it on the 17th and then never went anywhere till the morning of the 19th my car wont start it rolls but wont catch...

The 137 code is low input,rear o2 sensor,141 is a preheat fault at the same o2 sensor,the 442 is an evap leak (like a loose gas cap )
None of these codes would cause a no start condition.I think a fuel pressure test should be first,at least see if you hear the pump run for about 3 seconds as the key is turned on,don't have to crank it just turn the key on and listen (or a helper) at the fuel filler neck.

I left for work this morning and everything seemed to be fine, I arrived at work and my '02 grand prix gt would not shift into park. It will shift into any other gear except park. My car is in the...

you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan does not start

could be the starter but could also be a relay that is not working properly. the relays are under the hood. you would have to have someone under the hood and someone turning the key at the same time to see if the relay is working. if it works every time you turn the key then its probably the starter.

Will not start when engine warm

Sounds more like your ignition module is getting hot and not working. I'd go there first before replacing the ECM. You can remove the ignition module and most NAPA stores have the ability to test them for you. Make sure they test it at least 5 times. This way it'll simulate starting and stopping.
