Question about Cadillac Cars & Trucks
Do nothing if everything seems OK. Drain and refill, but never flush, you will stir up gunk in the pan, if you have hard or sluggish shifts

tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)

Dont think you can for this model its a special tool used and only the dealer has this tool ,its to stop you from doing it yourself and create work for the dealer .many europeon vehicles now use this type of filler where its pumped up from underneath and sensor within the box via OBDII tell the operator when to stop filling .Its known as progress

I've been having hesitation with shifting for the past 3 years. been in the shop 6 times (its a 2006 CTS with 78,000kms on it).
First they replaced the torque converter. That fixed the symptoms for 6 month. then they replaced the ****** under warranty. next time it was software. next time I'm not sure what they did to fix it. This time they blamed it on timing chains. After being in the shop for 8 weeks, I picked it up today and it worked great, except the check engine light came on, drove it straight back to the dealer. they took it for a test drive and it broke down on the highway. had to be towed back in.
My guess is you have the "stretched" timing chain issue that can occur on the Cadillacs. It might be covered by warranty, or if your SOL like me... not covered under warranty. Right now I'm fighting with GM Canada and the local GM dealer to fix this under warranty since it started under warranty to begin this.
