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.
It doesn't have one but they can check the transmission fluid at any place that does oil changes
All of the transmission fluid is inside the transmission. There is no external reserve.
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.
Possibility of fluid foaming and eventual transmission failure
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
