There should be a screw on the front of the trani near the coolant lines. With the engine off you unscrew the filler cap. That's on top of the trani on the driver's side. It has a little gear in fluid symbol on it. Then you take out the screw on the front and fill until fluid comes through the hole left by the screw. Remember to use Dex VI.

Hi dhansohm1,

open the bonnet (hood) and look for the transmission dip stick.... it's usually got a red top.... anyway the one that goes into the gear box.....Check the level ONLY with the engine running.... If needed, fill through the same tube....

Regards, Johngee10

From 2005 on they removed the dip stick and filler tube to save themselves $1.25 per car. You will see a plug where the dip stick use to be, you have to remove it to fill. Pontiac recommends that you inspect or change trani fluid every 50,000

2007 pontiac g6 transmission filter replacement

Remove the transmission pan - some don't have drain plugs, have a big pan underneath to catch the fluid. Pull filter and install filter on. Clean any debris from pan. Install gasket onto pan and install pan back onto transmission. Torque bolts to factory specs. Fill with approved ATF.

Hope this is helpful :-)

Hwo do you add transmission fluid to a pontiac g6

On the drivers side on top of the transmission, there is a red cap. Twist it off and you can fill it that way. You have to be careful though, because the only way to check the level is from underneath the car. There is no dipstick. Next to the oil drain plug, on the transmission, there is an 11mm bolt. This is the check plug. Run the vehicle to operating temperature and carefully remove the screw. You will know the transmission is full when the fluid dribbles out of the check plug.

Where is the fill cap for the power steering fluid resevoir for a 2006 Pontiac G- GT 3.5 v6 ?

Stand over the left front fender. Lean over so you can see past that side of the engine. You'll see the black cap on top of the trans on that side. Is your trans slipping between 1st and 2nd when it's warmed up? 'cause mine is.

Transmission fluid

alot of the newer cars do not have a checker. If you have no leak then its full. You just service it at the recommended intervals. How you fill them is you have a drain and a full cap. You remove the full cap and fill till it comes out. The fill cap is on the side of the trans and is accessable from the bottom

Where is the dip stick located for the transmission on a 2006 ponitac g6

Unfortunately their isn't a dipstick, their is a red cap on top for adding fluid and the way to check it is to have it running up in the air and remove a small plug from the pass side of the trans. after removing the plug with the engine running, add fluid and make sure its dexronVI , to the fill hole until it comes out of the bottom hole and thats how you check and fill it, I know it sucks..

The newer Pontiacs (& Chevy Malibus) have a sealed transmission, which means that there is no dipstick for the transmission. Consult your owner manual.

Where do i add transmission fluid to my pontiac g6 gt

You can add transmission fluid to you transmission through the transmission fluid dipstick tube. Take your time and use the right size funnel, check and dubble check to make sure you don not over fill. Over filling the transmission is just as bad as not haveing enough fluid too.
Good luck and hope this helps
