There are several things I used for tight spots. Use flexible adapters or flat wrench. Once it is broken loose it is usually fairly easy. Sometimes I even fabricate my own tools for the job. It was put in there so it is not impossible to take out.

How do i check and add transmission fluid to my 2000 pontiac sunfire


There is a bolt on the bottom of the transmission to remove to add/check fluid level. It must be done with the vehicle running and on a level surface (on a vehicle lift at shop). It can't be done with a floor jack because the vehicle won't be level anymore. There is a small (10mm I think) bolt on the on the side of the transmission side that faces towards the engine, just pull it out and if fluid trickles out then it is full. If not, get some dextron 3 and fill it. It's probably a good idea to just let a shop do this because there isn't an easy way for someone to fill it without the proper equipment.

How to replace the thermostat in my 2001 pontiac sunfire


Drain some of the coolant until you are sure it will not spill over when you remove the hose.
Remove the hose from the radiator .(Top) Hose. follow the hose to the thermostat housing. Remove the hose by removing the clamps.the thermostat is located in the housing. remove the bolts holding the thermostat housing. remove the housing. be careful to notice the position of the thermostat. Make sure you get the proper degree thermostat . Ask the vendor. give as much info as possible. mainly the size of the engine. remove the thermostat. You will get a new gasket with your new thermostat. Clean off the sufaces of the thermostat housing before installing the gasket.use a little grease to hold the gasket in place. and reinstall the new thermostat. replace housing and hose and refill with antifreeze/coolant. i hope this works for you and you vote for my answer.
