ourhowse, you may know cars, but you DON'T know the CRV. Both the automatic and manual transmission have drain plugs basically like the oil pan. Look at several of the online videos.

SOURCE: need to change spark plugs and fuel filter

What motor is in the 04 Cavalier? If it’s the Eco Tech 4, you need to remove the black cover on top of the engine to access the plugs. Once you remove this cover you will see the coils and the wires for the plug are attached to this cover. Gently remove the plug wires and disconnect the electrical connector from the coils. Set this assembly aside. Using an extension and the correct size spark plug socket. Remove the plugs. With the new plugs check and verify the gap is correct prior to installing the new plugs. One the correct cap has been set, install the new plugs. It is recommend to use a piece of vacuum hose to start the threads on the plugs as to not cross thread the new plugs. One the plugs threads are started use your wrench to tighten the plugs. Do not over tighten as you can strip out the threads. Then reinstall the wires and connect up the coils, reinstall the cover and start the engine. Make sure there is no check engine light and the motor is running correctly.

SOURCE: how do you check a 2004 alero transmission fluid

2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.

Transmission drain plug location on 2004 Cadillac deville


The OEM manufacturer did not install a drain plug in the transmission pan of the vehicle. You must drop the pan to drain the fluid. This is normal as you usually service the filter when you drain and fill the transmission.

Where is the transmission drain plug for 2004 trailblazer


Hi.

The Trailblazer transmission has no factory installed drain plug. To drain the ****** fluid you need to work from underneath the truck and drop the transmission pan off.

Regards.

How to change transmission fluid on a sealed transmission


I would first suggest taking it to someone who works on transmissions as it requires removing the filter pan on the bottom of the transmission. If you have had the car since new and never changed the fluid or don't know the last time it was serviced the best advice I can give you is to take it to a reputable mechanic or transmission repair shop and have them service the transmission. When you only change the fluid that comes out of the pan and filter you are only changing about 30% to 40% of the fluid the rest is in the torque converter which needs to be drained as well. Then there is the problem of disposing of the fluid if you do it yourself. It can be difficult to find someone to take the oil. If you decide to do it yourself it will also require a jack to lift the car, jack stands to hold the car up. NEVER EVER work under a car held up by the jack alone. This is the biggest reason I suggest letting someone else do this for you.

Need to find tool to take transmission plug off . I need to change the fluid and there are no service stastions in Little Rock that will touch it without proper tool


I'm curious, what tool? What Plug? If you check the Haynes repair manual on the vehicle it shows to remove the transmission pan to drain the oil. Although the vehicle is new enough it might have the newer Permanent Filter that is simply flushed at a service I only know of one vehicle manufacturer that I have heard was using drain plugs in the transmissions. If you go to Auto Zone they are going to have the tool for sale or rent if it's a special tool if there is one. If they sell a seal and Filter Kit you drain it by removing the Transmission pan.

Replace a 2004 Camry oil filter


For your car the Oil filter should be on the front left side of the engine as you look at it.
You will more then likely have to remove a small body panel to access it.
The drain plug should be located on the left side of the oil pan as well.

The Filter your car requires is a Wix #51348
Oil Capacity is 4.5 qts with Filter Change, double check your owner's manual or service manual to make sure.
So purchase 6 qts of you have some on hand when you check it and find it's a bit low.
General Procedures.

  • Gather necessary tools and materials. 
  • If you plan to change your oil regularly, consider investing in jack stands, a socket set
    (adapter to go from 3/8 to1/2 inch for strap wrench), a strap wrench, oil drain pan, leather gloves, funnel and a magnetic retrieval tool
    (to retrieve the plug encase you drop it in the hot oil). 
  • Run the car's engine for 10 minutes before you drain the oil. Warm oil drains faster than cold oil. 
  • Park the car on a level surface, engage the parking brake and turn off the engine. 
  • If your car has a low clearance, raise it by driving it onto a ramp or by jacking it up and supporting it securely. 
  • Open the hood and place the new oil and funnel on top of the engine to ensure that you won't forget to add oil afterwards. 
  • (an expensive mistake that many do-it-yourselfers make!).
