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.

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.

SOURCE: how do you change transmission fluid in an 1999

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.

Hi, I have known transmissions to have dipsticks. Obviously my '99 Alero doesnt have one. I was curious as how would i go about making sure my transmission fluid is not low and maintained?


this type of vehicle does not have one but there is a red cap located under the battery box. you can remove that cap and with a light you can see inside. how much fluid this vehicle has you will have to read your manual.
