You put it in the small tube that the transmission dip stick came out of. You'll need a small funnel and the PROPER fluid.

SOURCE: Trans-axle fluid leak

checking the transmission fluid involves lifting the vehicle and removing a plug on the transmission, it is quite difficult and messy if you don't have access to a lift, the vehicle has to be level and at operating temperature in park, there is a small plug on the side of the transmission near the passenger axle shaft. remove the plug slowly, i believe it is an 11mm bolt, if fluid drips out, the level is ok, if no fluid comes out, there is a small plastic screw on cap on top of the transmission itself on the driverside near the oil filter cap, add fluid slowly untill fluid starts to drip out of the plug hole, once the fluid starts to drip, insert the plug and tighten, don't overtighten, just snug it up.!!!make sure you use the right fluid, this is important!!! i believe your fluid is dextron 6, double check in your owners manual, the use of any other fluid will cause damage!!! also, do not remove the small plug on the front of the transmission, that is the pressure plug, all the fluid will shoot out with force if that plug is removed!!!

SOURCE: how to adjust headlights on 2006 chevy cobalt

There will be adjustment screws located on at least two different spots surrounding each headlamp. By turning these screws you move the angle of the headlamp. Most shops will do this at a very resonable rate, I say this because improper headlamp angle may lead to a ticket, or at least a warning. To say the least, they have to be at specific angles and heights. Good luck.

if it is a automatic transmission just open the hood and there is a tube other than the oil tube usually the opposing side of the engine between the engine and the fire wall it has a long dip stick just like the oil stick and this fluid level should be checked when engine is running in park,If it is manual transmission it is usually a sealed unit.

Where is transmission dipstick Chevy cobalt 2005


according to wiki.answers.com
"Chevy Cobalt has a sealed Automatic Transmission... no dip stick. Probably best to take it in to get service by trans shop if you think it needs changing or re-filling."
Or
"There actually isn't one. It's a sealed system. There is a cap to fill the transmission directly ontop of the transmission. If you need to check the level, lift the car1.gif in the air and there is a 11mm plug on the bottom of the transmission, With the car running (WARNING: THE CAR MUST REMAIN RUNNING WHILE PLUG IS OUT!!!!) take the plug out, the fluid should trickle out of the hole. If no fluid comes out add fluid. AGAIN DONT SHUT THE CAR OFF WHILE IT IS RUNNING OR ELSE FLUID WILL POUR OUT!"

HI IM TRYN TO BUY THIS 06 CHEVY COLBALT....HAD MY MECHANIC CHECK IT OUT FROM UNDER THE ENGINE TO BASICALLY THE ENTIRE CALL.IT HAS 72000 MILES ON IT.......ARE CHEVY COBALTS GUD CARS...I NOTICED TO IT DOESNT...


  • Hi, I can help.

  • I think the Cobalt is a decent car. not on my top 20 but defiantly worth owning if the price is right and the engine and transmission look clean and drive right.

  • As for the transmission, there is no dipstick. There is a check plug on the transmission just above the pan. I will list the steps on how to check the transmission. To fill the transmission there is a red or black cap that twists and pull up that is under the hood, on top of the transmission.


  1. Warn your car up.
  2. Make sure you are on a level surface.
  3. Put it in park.
  4. Set the emergency brake and leave the car running.
  5. On the back of the transmission there is a little 10mm bolt.
  6. Remove the bolt.
  7. If fluid comes out then it is full.
  8. If not then fluid is needed.
  9. Add just until it seeps out of the hole and that the proper way to fill that transmission.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I've had my 2006 chevy cobalt LS since 2007 and has never had the transmission flushed.when and or should it ever be flushed?


Every vehicle should have the automatic trans fluid changes at 30,000 miles and never go over
3 years,even if the milage is less.
Also,do the power steering at the same time.
