What does the maintenance schedule in your owners manual say? Different manufactures have different recommendations. Some list 36,000 miles all the way up to 100,000 miles. My personnel opinion is to change the fluid at 36,000 miles. It for sure does not hurt to change it even if the manufactures list a longer period of time. Just make sure you use the exact type fluid that is recommend by Pontiac. Also change the filter if it is accessible. Some GM transmissions are sealed for life and require no maintenance at all. Those type will not even have a dipstick to check the fluid level. If that is your case, I would call a GM dealer and ask their opinion, on fluid changes. Your owners manual is your best source of information on all maintenance items.

The location of an oil filter for a 2001 Pontiac Sunfire is very inoperable and located in the middle of a mess of hoses and belts so How do you remove it without taking the car apart?

I always had an oil change shop do mine, but I do know that the filter was behind the engine on the passenger side of the car. You have to get to it from under the car and probably with a filter wrench. If you end up changing it yourself, please remember to use jackstands, not the jack, to support the car. Safety first!

How do you change the oil filter on a 1996 Pontiac sunfire GT?

The generic answer to this question, is to use an oil filter wrench, available at any auto parts store. Be careful not to collapse the filter when you loosen it. Once it's loose, you can unscrew it the rest of the way by hand. Bear in mind here, that if the car has been driven just before you decide to remove/replace the filter, everything, including the oil in the filter, will be very hot! Use caution, please. When you replace the filter, first smear a thin coating of clean oil on the rubber seal in the end of the filter. Then, carefully screw the filter back onto it's mount. You DO NOT want to tighten the filter using the wrench that you used to remove it. Most filter manufacturers suggest that you tighten the filter by hand about 1/8 to 1/4 turn after the filter becomes snug and in contact with the engine. Check the directions on the filter box! I'm guessing that you're doing an oil change at the same time? When the entire oil change/filter change is done, start the car and look for leaks at the filter base and at the oil pan drain plug. If you see no leaks, beauty, you're done! If you DO see leaks, tighten whatever is leaking. Then you're done!. FriPilot
