How many quarts of transmission fluid does a 1999 Oldsmobile Alero hold. Also when you put my car in drive it jerks and when it shifts (mainly 1st and 2nd gear) it jerks. Any suggestions?

    I HAVE A 1999 ALERO AND SOMETIMES WHEN I PUT IT IN DRIVE IT JERKS AND WHEN I PUT IT IN PARK DO YOU MIGHT KNOW WHATS CAUSING THIS?

    Sometimes, when my car is warmed up, it jerks going from first to second gear, and then other times it doesn't. I'm scared to drive it sometimes because i think that my transmission is going to go out.

2004 olds alero transmission fluid how much to fill up


fill it to just above the low level , check it while it is running, (in park) ;-) on a level surface. drive it around the block to warm up the trans, check it again, if it is still low then add some to the full line, check again while running. (don't add fluid when running) it should stay at the full mark at this point.

CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID SOUND LIKE VECHICLE SLIPPING DUE TO LACK OF FLUID. CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID ON DIP STICK. WHILE ENGINE COLD FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK SHOULD FULL MARK.CRANK ENGINE LET VECHICLE IDLE TO WARM.THEN HOLD FOOT ON BRAKE SHIFT THROUGH ALL GEARS FEW TIMES CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL IF LOW ADD FLUID UNTIL YOU GET TO FULL MARK.IF YOU HAVE THE TRANSMISSION WITH NO DIP STICK.YOU NEED TO CHANGE TRANSMISSION FLUID + FILTER. YOU NEED 7 QUARTS OF TRANSMISSION FLUID.BUY DEALERSHIP TRANSMISSION PAN GASKET ITS THICKER MADE DIFFERENT WONT LEAK FLUID. THE TRANSMISSION GASKETS AT AUTO PARTS STORES TOO THIN LEAK FLUID BAD.
