The one in front should be the oil pan, the transmission pan is stamped steel and sort of "L" shaped, starting on the drivers side and wrapping around behind the engine oil pan. The trans pan also does not have a drain plug, where the engine oil pan does.

How to change transmission oil in 2000 Pontiac grand am


You have two choices, you can either take it to a shop and have it power flushed, recommended because this gets rid of all the fluid and replaces it with new fluid. The second is to drop the transmission pan, most cars don't have a drain plug for transmission fluid, so you would need to take out all the bolts holding the transmission pan out slowly letting the fluid drain as you bring the pan down. After you have the pan off I would go ahead and change the transmission filter, it is just above the pan inside the transmission. Place the pan back onto the transmission and fill with fluid, about 6-8 quarts.

How many quarts of transmission fluid does an 2007 grand prix hold


Depending on how much of the fluid is actually removed the fluid capacities are as follows:
Bottom Pan Removed : 7.4qtComplete Overhaul: 10.0 qtDry: 13.4qt
Since some transmission fluid is generally trapped inside the transmission during service, the actual number will depend on how much of the transmission was serviced.

Transmission won't shift into overdrive


Most likely cause is the 4th gear clutch shaft splines stripped off,where as fluid will be full,mostly clean and when pan is dropped for inspection you will find moderate amount of fine steel debris on magnet.another scenario is fluid is full,dark in color and smells like burnt oil which would indicate clutch friction disc slipping to the point of burnt.i am making the assumption that other gears happen at proper times and feel good and the check engine light is not on.The most telling trans diagnoses is if pan can be dropped,too much metal or friction debris=rebuild or replace.

(1999 pontiac grand prix 3.1 v6) how do I change my transmission fluid and filter?


You have to drop the tranny pan and drain the fluid into a large container. Get one of those large round ones from the part store, you will need one thatcan hold 10-12 qts of fluid. Some pans have drain plugs but most do not and you will have to loosen all the bolts untill you get the old pan to break the seal, leave the bolts on but loose enough to break the seal and let the fluid drain out of one side, then you can start removing the bolts. The filter is bolted to the underside of the transmission right above the pan. Simply remove the old one and bolt the new on on. Be carefull not to bend the pan and clean all surfaces of old gasket material before re installing new gasket.

How do you change the oil on a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix


you need to remove the drain plug from the oil pan, make sure the pan plug gasket is not dropped. Then you remove the filter & replace with a new one. After the oil has been left to drain. put the pan plug snuggly back into the oil pan. Refill 4.5 liters of 5w 30w engine oil. Start the engine, check for any leaks from both the new filter & pan plug. Turn off igntion & check the oil level on the dipstick. to make sure it is at the topp off the cross stitched area, if not add more a half liter at a time until it is at the full mark. There is nothing to grease with this car. U should also check transmission fluid, whick needs to be checked while the engine is running in park, there is a hot & cold safe level so check it carefully.

I have an instantly large leak of transmission fluid, and it all drained out. what could be wrong?


if the fluid is coming from the front of the transmission (near the engine) then it could be a front transmission seal blown .. if its coming from where the axels enter the transmission then you might have a blown spline seal .. you could have damage to the transmission pan .. that happens if a rock or chuck hole hits the transmission pan .. look for damage or a crack in the pan ..

How much transmission fluid does a 1999 Grand Prix once I drop the pan and change the filter? Also, what kind of transmission fliud works best? Thanks


Transmission fluid does not have to deal with nearly the number of problems engine oil has to, with heat, water, acids, grit, etc., so it is not at all critical. In the old days, Ford always had a different fluid because they used different material for seals. But these days the all the fluids sold are great.

As to how much, that depends. There will only be about 4 quarts in the pan and transmission, but the total is more than twice that, and it can very anywhere in between, depending on how much fluid drains down from the torque convertor. It has a little flap that is supposed to stop drainage, but it always leaks down slowly anyhow. So there is never any set amount. You just have to estimate how much came out, put that much in to start, and keep checking and adding, with the engine running.
