You add fluid to the transmission dipstick tube using a long-neck funnel sold at auto stores. Use DEXTRON III fluid. Don't overfill, have car on level surface, hot, and in park. I hope this helps you. Mark

You add fluid in the same pipe the dip stick is installed in. It is meant to help keep you from over filling the transmission.

No drive on a 1999 olds alero


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.

Where is transmission drain plug


Most GM Transmissions don't have a drain plug. Need to slowly remove pan bolts starting at one corner to remove fluid. Gasket will need to be replaced once you pop the pan off.

2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette shifts into gear hard


try having your transmission filter changed there only about 15 - 20 bucks but you will have to buy transmission fluid. ive seen that solve that problem in a few vechiles. if you do it yourself there is a magnet located in the transmission pan that you have to remove to change the filter and if it is full of metal shavings i suggest asking a local transmission shop about having trouble with that type of vechicle
