If your car is the 2.4 version then I can help. Under your intake tube their is this little RED Cap on top of your transmission. You have to drain your trans first then unscrew the RED cap and refill transmission with 4 quarts of trans fluid.

If your Oldsmobile Alero will not shift into overdrive, the transmission may have froze up. Check the fluid levels to determine if you are low on fluid.

The Oldsmobile Alero has a sealed system with no dipstick. A total change requires approximately 9.5 quarts of Dexron III transmission oil.

To keep a car running its best, a person has to keep the fluid levels maintained. The 2000 Oldsmobile Alero uses 12 quarts of transmission fluid.Ê

there is no dipstick for the transmission on an alero there is a fill spot crammed on the transmission beside the motor to check it you get under and pull out a plug on the tranny

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.

There is no transmission dipstick. They have a sealed transaxle. You should never have to add or replace fluid.

The Oldsmobile Alero has a capacity of 9.5 quarts of transmission oil. It is important to use Dexron III oil and not Mercon.

Check your owner's manual. Under heavy driving conditions, the factory owner's manual suggests changing it at 50,000 miles.

A 1998 Oldsmobile 88 takes ATP automatic transmission fluid. This is sold in most places that carry transmission fluid, or you can buy it through a dealer.

Sounds more like a transmission mount. When you drive it if it doesnt jump when it shifts gears then more than likely its a mount.

Can't find it ? It does not have one ! Only has a fill cap. Fluid is checked by removing a plug on transmissin. This is great job for GM dealer.

You can check the automatic transmission fluid on an Olds Alero by finding the check plug. It is located about half way down on the transmission. Loosen the plug and slowly pull it out.

use, DEXRON III automatic transmission fluid

There is no transmission fluid dipstick on 2000 Oldsmobile Alero. The process to check the fluid level is very tricky and my recommendation is to take it to the dealer to have it check and filled if needed. It was designed this way to prevent leaks. Take some money. This previous answer is correct i have a 2000 Alero and it does not have a tranny dipstick, its an automaic and they call this tranny a sealed for life set up, there is a filler cap to add fluid but to check it i suggest take it to dealer or try to see if u can see any fluid near the top of filler tube reservor. as long as u have no leaks from tranny it should not need fluid and if u think it does it wont need much as long as there are no leaks, TONY, Indpls, IN..

7 quarts if you are changing the filter and draining it. The darn thing does not have a transmission dipstick so check the owners manual for exact amount. You should be good with about 6 to 7 quarts no matter what.

You add fluid at the same place you check it.
