Hi, the oil pan will have a drain hole but you may not see it it is right at the back of the sump so you need to get right under the car to see it but it is their you need to get to it from the back its not in the bottom of the sump but right at the back get under and you should see it.

make sure the car is on stands as its not safe leaving it on jacks it only takes a rubber seal to split for the jack to drop

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

How hard is it to change a oil pan gasket

It's not hard ,but you need to know if there might be any obstruction that might get in the way preventing you dropping the pan down just make sure all the oil is drained before you start ,and make sure you clean both surfaces thoroughly before putting gasket on ,and you must tighten all bolts or screws evenly or it will leak .

How much transmission fluid does a 1998 sunfire gt 4 speed auto take? I've changed the oil and don't know for sure how much to put back in?

3.8 in the pan and about 6-8 liters in the tran if it is a downstairs check plug then its is pritty easy to check. There is a little 11ml bolt on the right side of the tran pan that you pull out while the car is running and in park if fluid comes out your good, if not top it up cycle the gears and try again. best of luck

Dont know where oil plug is

Under the car about dead center between the Front wheels. Should be a 15mm Bolt head. If you can identify the oil drain pan under the car, it's the lowest bolt on the pan.

Where to check/put in transmission fluid in 2005 Pontiac Sunfire

I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.

Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.
Good luck.
