Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Alero
Where is the transmission dipstick?
There is not your typical dipstick but underneath the hood about half way to the fire wall is where you put it in. If you unscrew the cap and fluid drips off if it does not you need more.

Your Alero does not have a transmission dip stick. You do not need to check it unless it starts leaking.
Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

SOURCE: transmission dipstick
Your car has a sealed transmission, no dipstick, the fluid is checked with an electronic scan tool when it is at the proper temperature through an access port on top of trans. The reason they do this is to keep owners from overfilling the trans, very common problem and can ruin the transmission.

This usually depends on what kind of transmission maintenance you wish to do. if you want to do a complete flush you need to take it to a shop and have it flushed professionally. If you would rather do a drain and fill, then this is definitely something that can be done at home. I would also recommend changing the transmission filter and pan gasket. Will only take you a few extra minutes and will save you alot of trouble in the long run. Before you get started, be aware that it is not always recommended to do a complete flush on older model, high mileage vehicles. As the transmission fluid becomes worn, it creates deposits and when you completely flush the system, sometimes the deposits are left behind and will clog up the oil ports and cause you some major headaches. Always do at least 5 drain and fills before you flush the whole system. For a complete pictorial guide on how to perform a drain and fill please go here.
