SOURCE: A/C Orifice Tube on Sunfire

Pontiac has bad habit of moving them around on us. 
Example: on the 2000 Sunfire it is at the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car. On the 1998 it is on the high pressure line right as it enters the firewall.
Therefore I am comfortable in saying that you will find it in the outlet of the condenser up near the front of the car.I recommend that if you are doing this repair yourself, ensure you replace the o-ring on the line itself with a new one. 
 Thank you for your question and good luck.

SOURCE: check automatic transmission fluid 2001 pontiac sunfire

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

Need to flush coolant and replace with new coolant can not find drain point for coolant.

Not all cars have them. Sometimes it's just a plastic screw-in plug. If there is no petcock or plug at the bottom of the radiator (right or left corner), you have to just unclamp the lower radiator hoes and pull it off. Be careful if the coolant is hot. OK?

Removing drain plug in radiator in 2003 sunfire

The textbook method is to remove the drain plug on the bottom of the radiator.

Most drain plug is make of inexpensive nylon/plastic and it may fall apart while you turn it.

The professional method is to loosen the lower radiator clamp and drop to lower radiator hose.

Drain the coolant onto a large drain pan and recycle the coolant


I just did a FREE write up on air purge from coolant system and how to detect initial state of blown head gasket at the Fixya tip selection.
