I have an Olds Achieva 96, which uses the same platform as Grand Am.The way to change Transmission Fluid is to take off the bottom drain pan, about 20 bolts all around it. While you're at it, change the filter and gasket too, which are sold in Autozone as a kit.
Further - refilling fluid is a chore. Refill is directly below the master cylinder on the 4cylinder. You have to move a wiring harnass to see a red cap. Just unscrew it and wala. Also, need to have a funnel with a long spout @ 18" at least - preferrable flexable to manuver through everything. Fill it up.
Remove transmission oil pan Replace fluid, filter, and gasket
When changing fluids in a car, it is important to know the fluid capacity of the car. A 1999 Pontiac Grand AM holds about 5 quarts of transmission fluid.
what is the part no# for a replacement transmission filter, for a 2001 Pontiac gtp grand prix . Also how much transmission fluid does it take to change.thank you Tim
When changing the transmission fluid of a car it is important to know its fluid capacity. The 2001 Pontiac Grand Prix holds between 7 and 8 quarts of fluid.
Dexron III automatic Transmission fluid should be used in a 2000 Pontiac Grand AM. This can be picked up at almost any general store.
if you have waited until you have transmission problems to change the fluid, you have waited too late...........
If your 1993 Pontiac Grand Am will not shift into part, the transmission is probably seized up. The first step is ensuring the transmission fluid is not too low.
On the top of the transmission there is a red cap. that cap comes off and you add fluid through there.
Remove the transmission oil pan
Unfortunately there isn't one.
I have a 1999 Grand am se and it dont have a dipstick but it do have a red transmission fluid top on the right side of the 3400 sign that could be unscrewed but it don't have anything on it to check the fluid but you could stick your finger in it to see if its anything in it
you need to change the fluid. my 99 grand am does that, it feels like you're shifting a manual from 1st to 2nd.
There is no dipstick for the transmission. It has a check valve on the side of the pan.
The transmission fluid on a 96 Pontiac Grand Am SE is put into the filler tube on the left side of the engine. It runs directly into the top of the transmission and also contains a dipstick to check fluid levels.
We have a 5 speed Pontiac grand am we were told that we need to change the transmission fluids we didn't know we had that. The question is do we have one and how much will it cost us.
You have to remove the transmission pan to drain the fluid. Change the filter(s). Reinstall the pan and fill the fluid.
It doesn't have one but they can check the transmission fluid at any place that does oil changes
Uhh, maybe try the dipstick tube
it is a sealed unit u have to take it to a garage
most likely its the tranny. could use a fluid and filter change or could be more serious.
you cant do it without the fulshing machine go to a mr lube or can tire an they will do a tranny flush for 100 bucks
i got a 1991 grand am it is a 5 speed i need to no where to fill it
