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

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.

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.

The amount of transmission fluid that is needed by a 2000 Sunfire 2.2 automatic varies, depending on what you need your car for. Generally, it will only take 3 ounces.

There is a cap that says transmission fluid only on it. It should have yellow or red writing.

On the top of the transmission there is a red cap. that cap comes off and you add fluid through there.

If it's an auto transmission, it could be that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is not putting the car into gear properly. Or, you may be low on fluid. Check that at the fill plug on the side of the transmission. If it's a standard, you probably need a new clutch.

Under the car, remove the bolt to transmission fluid container, and allow it to drain. Replace the bolt and add in a few quarts of transmission fluid, start the car and allow it to warm, check the fluid level and add more if needed.

According to my Haynes manual, all but the older Sunfires don't have dipsticks. There is a fill plug on the side of the transaxle. To check fluid level, remove the plug and stick your finger in the hole. If it comes out wet, the fluid level is OK. If it comes out dry, add a bit of fluid until your finger comes out wet. Crude, but effective

The evaporator hose on a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire is located behind the air compressor. Trace one of the hoses back to a cylinder shaped accumulator. The evaporator hose is connected to the bottom of this cylinder.

The coil pack on a 2000 Pontiac Sunfire is located behind the air intake hose. Just behind where the air intake hose connects to the top of the motor is where the coil pack is on this vehicle.
