If you just drained the pan, it will take about 4-5 quarts. If you overhauled it, it will take abour 12 quarts.

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.

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.

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

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