This is usually a very messy job, as the filter lives inside the transmission just inside the bottom pan.
Most sources usually have you loosen all of the pan bolts in a way that the pan tilts to one end. This is to remove the fluid. Next, remove the pan completely, clean out the pan, remove any remains of the gasket and clean the transmission mating surface. The filter usually just pulls off it's mounting point and the new one goes in the same way, only reversed. Be sure that the seal came out with the filter. If not, dig it out and discard. Use the new one that comes with the new filter.
Now, replace the gasket and begin to put the pan back on. Once you get all the bolts in, you can begin tightening them by moving around the pan, tightening each bolt a little until you reach the proper torque spec. (this is apparently related to the bolt size, according to the Haynes manual) Once this is done, you'll have to add about 3 1/2 quarts of ATF. From here, you REALLY need a shop manual. Dependent on which engine and transmission you have, the final fluid level check varies quite a bit. However, if your car has a transmission dipstick like my '96, it's realatively direct to check the fluid.
The very best way I know to do this job is to have someone else do it. Look around for local shops offering specials.
where is the fuel filter located on a 2003 Pontiac sunfire
The filter is located inside the transmission just inside the bottom pan.
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.
yes you have to
You can find the 2005 Pontiac Sunfire air filter the inside of the air filter housing.. The air filter housing will be in the engine compartment.
A 1997 Pontiac Sunfire has an AC Filter located in the cabin. The filter can be found behind the glove compartment and is used replaceable.
The fuel filter on a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire is in the rear between the fuel tank and the rear axle. By the way its under the car and easy to change takes about 10 minutes.
To change the transmission filter on your vehicle you have to drop the transmission pan. Once you get it down you will see the filter. It comes out by pulling it down and twisting it a little.
The transmission filter will be located inside the transmission. Their is no need to replace it if you flush it. A flush will clean everything and rinse the filter
The 2002 Pontiac sunfire does not have a cabin filter. The air flows freely either in fresh air or recirculation modes.
I've never had to change mine, but it's an in-line filter located near the gas tank.
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
next to the tank
it at the back of your gas tank
There is none. This vehicle does not have a air filter for HVAC ventilation.
Um, which filter? Gotta be more specific.
I recommend changing it every 50,000 miles unless it is a permanent filter that requires no maintenance.
Near the gas tank. It's an in-line filter.
Do a search for your part on the O'Reilly's or Autozone websites. That way you'll have the most current price and you can compare prices.
Remove transmission oil pan Replace fluid, filter, and gasket
The Haynes manual specs 4 quarts (with a filter change) FriPilot
Under the car by the fuel tank
I know that on a '96 the fuel filter is an in-line type near the fuel tank. As Pontiac hasn't really altered much on the Sunfire in over ten years, I'd suggest starting there.
Look under the vehicle - follow the fuel line from the tankRemove clamps and support to replace
