Best Answer

Drop the oil pan. But another option if not replacing fluid filter is to take a very small clear hose and tape it to a shop vac hose, put the hose all the way down the fill spout and suck the fluid out. sugest a clean vac so you can determine the amount of fluid that came out and compare to the capacity chart, it will be less but not by much.

Drop the trans pan not the oil pan!

Transmission fluid dip stick on olds alero?

The transmission fluid dipstick for the Oldsmobile Alero does not exist. In place of the traditional fluid checking mechanism, the Alero has two caps. One of these is red, is located in the vicinity of the master brake cylinder, and is for refilling transmission fluid. The other cap, or plug, is 15mm and roughly halfway down the transmission. Loosen it carefully. If fluid comes out, the transmission fluid is good. If not, however, more fluid must be added.
