The transmission on the 02 Grand am was actually meant to be "sealed for life", meaning that the fluid in the transmission should last the life of the vehicle. Now some people may argue against this and I certainly understand their point of view, but Pontiac built it to stay sealed, and in some cases you can actually end up damaging the transmission by changing out this fluid (once again, many people argue against this). If you are just doing this change as a regular maintenance then I applaud you for it, but I would recommend you don't actually open it up unless you suspect there is an issue inside. Those transmissions are fairly bomb proof. I've had several of them and put over 200,000 km on them without any problem, or changing any fluid.
