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

I have a 1998 pontiac sunfire with a 3 speed transmission and i want to change it to a 4 speed transmission, what would i have to do to change this, i know the computer is one thing i would have to change,...


First you have to be sure that they made a 4 speed for this car. When you get it (assuming junk yard) you will need the ECM and the engine/transmission wiring harness. Depending on the year of the transmission you will probably have to swap some of the plugs in the harness, so don't throw the old one away. Once you have it all together, then you will have to have the ECM reprogrammed for the engine and transmission.

What kind of auto trans fluid


The 2003 Sunfire has been updated from Dexron II or III to Dexron VI per a Technical Service Bulletin from GM.

Automatic Transmission, 4T40-E Initial Fill..........6.5 liters
Automatic Transmission, Total Fill 4 speed 4T40-E..........12.2 liters


Good luck and hope this helps, if you do use Synthetic transmission oil, make sure it's a Low Viscosity Synthetic Transmission oil. High viscosity transmission oil will cause the gear shifting to stick and will cause shifting issues.

Thank you for using fixya and good luck.

1998 SUNFIRE GT TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


There are 3 transmissions that could be in your car,the 3 speed auto and 4 speed auto overdrive,and of course the manual 5 speed.The 3 speed is designated the 3T40,the 4 speed auto is the 4T40E trans.To check the fluid level,first,the car has to be warmed up to at least 100 degrees Fahrenheit.The car has to be raised in the air,as there is a steel plug in the trans case that has to be removed to check the fluid level.The plug takes an 11 mm or 7/16" socket or wrench and is located on the passenger side of the trans case,near where the passenger side axle engages into the trans.The procedure is to warm the car up to at least 100 degrees,engage the shifter into each gear selection pausing for about 5 seconds in each gear,then remove the plug.If fluid drips out,it is full.If no fluid drips out,add fluid through the top of the trans after removing the red plastic cap,and make sure to use a long funnel to avoid a mess.Add fluid until it drips out the hole.When done,replace the plug and cap.Just a note,a transmission does not "use" fluid like an engine uses oil.If you have to add fluid,that means there is a leak that needs to be repaired.Good luck
