How often to change transmission fluid in a 2004 ponitac grand am


Never to maybe once for the life of the car. Some of the older cars were drained by removing a magnetic plug in the transmission pan and often the service centers conned the owner into letting them drop the pan and change the filters, which invariably caused problems with leakage due to pinched seals, which caused problems with the transmission getting to hot for lack of fluid. "If it ain't broke don't fix it." Just add fluid as needed if ever.

Oil capacity of 2002 grand prix


Right around 4 3/4 quarts. Use an AC Delco filter. There is a difference and this will prevent low oil pressure.

Oil filter location


The V6 has a screw on filter unlike the 4 cylinder which has a cartridge filter. The filter is located in one of 2 positions depending on which V6 you have. On one V6 it is located under the car towards the front where there is a splash guard that is held in place by two thumb screws. Remove the thumb screws take out the splash guard and there it is. On the other V6 it is located under the air tube that comes from the air filter where you will see a nut about the size 3/4 or bigger just unscrew it and change your oil filter.

How to change a transmission filter on 2002 gt grand am


The transmission filter is in the transmission so your going to have to drop the transmission pan. The best thing your going to have to do is to bring it to a transmission shop or any GM dealer and have them service the transmission.
There is no dipstick on a 2002 Grand Am. You'll need to find a small plug on the passenger side of the transmission - look slightly behind the oil pan. Should need 11mm socket to take it out (it's obviously a plug - it doesn't look like it's holding anything together) If no fluid comes out, it's low. To add, you'll need to take off the airbox and find the red cap that either says 'trans fluid' or just has a picture of a gear.
What ever you do, do not do a transmission flush. It common for the transmission to fail shortly after the transmission flush has been performed.
If your going to attempt to service your transmission, you need to drop the transmission oil pan to remove and replace the transmission oil filter. Spray down the valve body with brake parts cleaner and then replace the oil filter that just slides back in place, make sure you remove the old O ring that holds the oil filter in place. Using the old O ring may result in the oil filter dropping from the valve body.
Once you have reinstalled everything, you can refill the transmission through the tube mentioned under the air box.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck.
