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.

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.

On the top of the transmission there is a red cap. that cap comes off and you add fluid through there.

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.

There is no dipstick for the transmission. It has a check valve on the side of the pan.

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.

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.

Most newer automatic transmissions do not use a dipstick.
