Your Alero does not have a transmission dip stick. You do not need to check it unless it starts leaking.


Please let me know if this information is helpful. Positive feedback is appreciated. Thank You!

What transmission oil does my 2002 oldsmobile alero 3.4 need?


This care does not have a dipstick but can easily be checked at home.
  1. 1. Warm the car up to running temperature.
  2. 2. Park it on a level surface.
  3. 3. Leave the car running and set the emergency /parking brake. Also set bricks in front and behind the wheels.
  4. 4. Look on the passenger side of the transmission (underneath the car)
  5. 5. You will see a 10mm bolt a little bit inward from the right axle on the transmission itself.
  6. 6. Have a drain pan ready and pull that bolt.
  7. 7. If fluid comes out it is full.
  8. 8. If no fluid comes out then add ATF III in the fill port on top of the transmission until the fluid just barely seeps out of that hole you removed the bolt from.
  9. 9. This port is on top of the transmission (under the hood) and is usually red or black in color.
  10. 10. The transmission is now full and ready to go.
  • Oldsmobile says to use Alero "F" transmission fluid but ATF III will work just as well. It has the same friction modifier as the Alero "F" does and is a bit cheaper (price wise) as well.

  • Hope this helps.

Where do i put the transmission fluid in my alero 2001?


The only way to check the level is to get under the vehicle and loosen a bolt attached to the transmission. You fill the transmission until fluit comes out the bolt hole The only way to put transmission fliud in is on the drivers side of the engine. There is a lid that screws off that you put the fluid into. It is not visible and is a pain to get to. It is tucked in under other parts of the engine. You have to use a flexible funnel. I strongly suggest that if you are going to perform this yourself, you spend the $25.00 and buy the book on the vehicle from a local parts store.

I need to change the transmission fluid on my 2000 alero (4 cylinder),however I am unable to locate the dipstick to check the level. Where is it or how many quarts should I add.


Technically there is no dipstick as there was on other vehicles.Your vehicle may have a little cap that screws into the transmission. under that cap is the little dipstick. However some vehicles do not have this cap. Causing you to take the vehicle to a shop where they can flush the fluid using a machine that they hook up to the transmission cooler lines. This machine takes out all the nasty fluid that is left behind by a regular filter or drain and fill. Usually when you change the filter or perform a drain and fill you replace about 4-5 quarts. as this machine can replace up to 16 quarts, depending on the transmission. You cannot get this much out of the transmission by draining it. there is still some left in the passage ways and torque converter. i have used the machine myself on all of my vehicles and they will guaratee that the whole transmission will be cpmpletely filled with brand new clean fluid.

How to check trans oil on the '02 olds alero


Hi! The transmission on this model does not have a dipstick. Instead it uses a transmission fluid oil check plug. It is accessed under vehicle. To check fluid level you must remove oil check plug. if fluid is coming out transmission is full. If it requires some fluid you can get a gear oil bottle and a short piece of hose to put on end of nipple and squeeze dextron 3 transmission fluid in until it runs out of plug hole. Then re-install plug and snug it up. **Note: Car must be on level surface with engine off when checking. Use suitable jack stands in front and rear to make vehicle as level as possible.Always wear safety goggles when working under vehicle. I have included a picture of fill plug location for you. I hope you find this information useful!caf5dc7.gif

Where to put transmission fluid in the 2003 alero


i presume that is a front wheel drive. look beside the motor at the transaxale (transmission) for a dipstick... the fluid is added into the same hole the dipstick goes... you'll need a funnel..... incidentally atf type transmission fluid is for fords .... might want to check your owners manual for the correct type you should use.
