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.

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.

How do you change transmission fluid in an 1999 alero olds


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.

Where is the transmission dipstick


YOUR TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE DIP STICK.IT HAS A VENT FILL CAP WHERE YOU POUR TRANSMISSION FLUID.YOUR VECHICLE HAS TO RAISED LEVEL WITH A FLOOR LIFT. WHILE ENGINE RUNNING A CHECK PLUG ON TRANSMISSION AXLE HOUSING TRANSMISSION.CHECK PLUG IS ABOVE THE OIL PAN DRAIN PLUG. YOU REMOVE CHECK PLUG WITH ENGINE RUNNING.IF NO DRIP ADD A PINT FLUID TO GET LEVEL RIGHT.IF YOU GET A SLOW DRIP FLUID LEVEL OKAY.IF FLUID POUR OUT CHECK PLUG HOLE TOO MUCH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION.THIS TYPE OF TRANSMISSION THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID.

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.
