as far as i know you cant check the Transmission Fluid on a 2000 Pontiac sunfire. It uses dexcool automatic transmission fluid and very rarley needs to be changed, i have a manual shift and it never has to be changed. Actually the only way that you can change it is by having it flushed the same way you flush a radiator, it has to be sucked out by a machine.
All of the transmission fluid is inside the transmission. There is no external reserve.
When changing the transmission fluid of any car, it is important to know how much fluid to put in. A 2001 Pontiac Sunfire takes 2.5-3 quarts of transmission fluid.
A 2001 Pontiac Sunfire requires 1.8 quarts of DEXRON III fluid for the 5-speed manual transmission.
Remove the transmission oil pan
There's no dipstick on a Sunfire that new. You need to add fluid at the transaxle itself. There's a plug in the side of the transaxle that needs to be removed to check or fill the fluid.
it doesnt have adip stick it has a bolt in the side of trans better take to dealer
There is a trans dip stick on the back side of the engine. This is where you add fluid also. GoodluckJOe
The transmission dipstick on a 1994 Pontiac Sunfire is located on the left side of the engine. It connects to the transmission via a long tube which also allows for adding transmission fluid.
There's probably no dipstick on a Sunfire that new. You need to add fluid at the transaxle itself. There's a plug in the side of the transaxle that needs to be removed to check or fill the fluid.
syncromesh transmission fluid
Dexron III ATF.
It does not need transmission fluid. you need to fill the clutch up
The filter is located inside the transmission just inside the bottom pan.
With the transmission in park, and the engine running. Remove the dipstick wipe and dip again then read. It will show fluid if its cold or warm. (Just a tip use dexron 3 type trans fluid.)
Some early model Sunfires have a dipstick. In my '96, the dipstick is located near the firewall, down and inboard from the brake fluid reservoir.
your vehicle does not have a dipstick tube,your trans is a sealed unit and cannot have fluid added to it.the only way to check your fluid level is at the transmission itself.there is a plug on the passenger side top area of your trans case
The G5 has a transmission dipstick. Find it and check the fluid level as normal.
Yes. If memory serves, you want to do that about every 30,000 miles.
Same place you check the fluid level. Some have sealed transmissions, there is no dipstick, there is a red knob on top of transmission that says transmission fluid
Check the fluid at the fill plug on the side of the transmission. It should be right up to the level of the hole. If not, add fluid.
You add fluid at the same place you check the level.
You add fluid at the same place you check the fluid level. Takes a special funnel. If there is no place to check the level, then it is a sealed for life transmission.
You'll have to pull the transmission pan, and drain the fluid. This is a messy job. I recommend having it done at the shop if you can.
Car on level surface, engine warmed up, trans in park to check; add dextron lll fluid little by little through the same ( marked trans)dipstick with a transmission fluid funnel.These items are available at any mart store.
