The filter for automatic transmisions is in the trans. You take the trans oil pan off while draining the fluid to change. Then once the pan is off you will see the filter, it should be replaced at the same time as changing the fluid.

I need to know exactly where the oil filter is located on my 2001 Chevy Tahoe.

it's under the vehicle on the drivers side next to where the engine and transmission meet. If you can see the drain plug the filter is right next to it.

Why is it that I cannot shift to 4th gear from third gear in my Hyundai Sonata 2001

The same thing happened in my 2001 Hyundai Sonata. I read many previous forums that stated transmission shops cannot find the problem and the ones that did spent alot of money to do it. I am more of a diy guy so i got a free diagnostic test done stating a shift speed sensor. i pulled off the air filter box to expose the top of the transmission and low and behold i found the plug in the center was corroded. I went to the parts store and they wanted about $50 for the new plug and being sceptical i just took some scrap wires and soldered new connectors inside the plug and hasnt had the problem now for a year.

Does the AT transmission have a filter or do you

Only a few had filters. if it does you can see it from above. It would be near the radiator on the drivers side. It sits on top ofthe tranny and is a regular looking oil filter. You probably do not have one. Fluid changes do not usually involve gasket changes.

Car is stalling out when cold

"Take the trans pan off and it is there. It will take about 4 quarts of trans fluid to refil the trans."
If the question refers to the engine oil filter, then it is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, just to the right of the engine oil pan. There is a suspension fork just under the oil filter, so you have to look above that or around it and you will see the filter. The top of the oil filter will be facing to the left, pointing toward the passenger side tire. There is a small flap on the left of the filter that you will have to push out of the way to get your hand on the top of the filter. I recommend jacking up that side of the car a few inches to get your arm in there. I also recommend using a FRAM filter, that way you can take advantage of the top grip feature so that you can get a much better grip on the filter and remove it very easily. Remember to "moisten" the gasket on the new filter before installing it. The Sonata takes 5 quarts of whatever premium oil you want to use, however, I cannot recommend a brand without starting an argument. I believe the car manual call for 5w30, but I have used 10w30 with no issues. Best of luck...
