There is no transmission dipstick.

The car needs to be jacked up so that the front of the car and the rear of the car are level. You can then gain access to the transmission level plug located on the passenger side of the transmission under the car, right behind the oil pan. It will be a small brass colored plug.

With the engine up to normal operating temperature and running remove this plug. Have a drain pan under it to catch any fluid that may come out. If fluid comes out it is full. If no fluid comes out you'll need to add some. DO NOT SHUT OFF THE VEHICLE WITH THE PLUG REMOVED!

The fill plug is located on the top of the transmission. If you look down on the drivers side of the engine where it meets the transmission you will see a red cap. Unscrew that cap and using an appropriate funnel add fluid until it runs out the level plug hole. Once it starts to run out it is full and the level plug can be reinstalled, the engine shut off and the car lowered.

It is very important for the car to be level and for the engine to be running the whole time to level plug is removed.

My 2001 alero is running real rough and trying to overheat, it has oil and water and gas what could it be?

Replace your thermostat. This allows coolant to travel through your engine. It could be stuck close not allowing enough coolant to pass through.

Need to know how to change tranmission shift sensor?

Shift Solenoid maybe? Usually in the pan area. This requires dropping the tranny pan underneath and changing the fluid, filter, gasket, and solenoid(s). Prices for solenoids are cheaper online than in the parts stores. I'm not familiar with a shift sensor, but maybe I don't know about it. :)

Replacing blower for 2001 oldsmobile alero

Are you replacing it because it has no speeds and doesnt seem to work? checked your fuses and tried replacing the blower motor resistor? I would try a blower motor resistor because it is the most common issue with most cars first. before doing the fan, if you are unsure locate your blower plug in and apply power and ground and if it comes on it is not the blower motor.
