What size socket fits 2007 Pontiac torrent automatic transmission fill plug or bolt

That's it in the pic? Kind of hard to gauge the bolt size from the picture. It must be metric, though. My guess, it looks like a 17 mm socket or wrench would fit. 15, 17, 18, or 19 mm, those are probably the choices. Don't you or a friend have wrenches or sockets that you could try?

flywheel bolt size

I'm thinking here that the head of the bolts is not very thick in which case the socket you are using will need some modification. If you look in the socket you will see that there is a small lead in relief and this will only allow the socket to full engage on 1/2 of the bolt head. Place the socket in a vice and use a grinder to grind of the face of the socket until the sides are square across. This will give full contact with the bolt head inside the socket.. Another point, it is unusual to find metric bolts in a USA made engine so check out the other size metric sockets as European metric use 9-11-13-15-16-18-20 mm sizes compared to Asian 10-12-14-17-19-21 mm. in auto production.

hello, i am a mother of 4kids.i have a chevy monte carlo i think 97, it will not start..it does make a noise of hesitation ,,,,we toweed it to the mechanic and the mechanic says it's the starter.. the mechanic is charging me a lot of money i don't have..i am going to try doing it myself...teach me how to do it....how much do you think is a brand new cost of a starter, or refub? any idea. thank you ,, i really need your help..

Hello: A rebuilt starter is 129.99 & 10.00 core charge which you get back when you return the old starter. a new starter is154.99 w/same core charge. To replace starter raise up front of car, the starter is on the bottom front of the engine. You need the following tools: 10mm 3/8 drive socket, 8mm socket 1/4 drive, 13mm 3/8 drive socket 15mm 3/8 drive socket, 6 inch and 12 inch 3/8 drive extension and ratchet and 3 inch 1/4 drive extension and ratchet. Disconnect black (negative) battery cable (use 8mm socket and ratchet) Raise car up remove any lower cover that restricts access to the starter, disconnect small purple wire from starter solenoid use 8 mm socket 3 inch extension and ratchet. Remove heavy red wire from starter solenoid with either 13 or 15 mm socket 3 inch or 6 inch 3/8 drive extension and ratchet on the bottom toward the transmission there will be a black plastic rock guard cover remove it 10 mm socket, extension ratchet then remove two bolts !5 mm bolt heads using the 6 or 12 inch extension and 3/8 extensions and ratchet when bolts are out starter will fall away from engine. Don't let it fall on you. When re-installing make sure the wire connections on the stater solenoid are tight but do not over tighten them or you will break the solenoid. Also remove the positive battery cable (while the black one is disconnected) make sure it is clean, No corrosion, clean with baking soda and water mixture then rinse off w/fresh water. When connecting battery make sure connections are tight. GOOD LUCK

Hello: There should be a 10mm bolt head that holds a clip. This clip keeps the speed sensor in place. Use a 10 mm wrench, socket to remove bolt/screw.
