Have you pulled out the dip stick to check your trans fluid? You put the fluid in the same hole. Pour slowly as it takes the fluid slow. The transmission is a sealed unit, there is no dip stick. Only if it leaks does it need to be serviced. no, the check area is under the car. you take a bolt out and you can see if the fuid goes up to the top of the threaded part, best to be done by a service center. The 4L30E transmission, like their BMW (92-98 4L30E) conterparts are a totally sealed unit. The service hole to check the fluid is also the where you add fluid. This sealed unit is filled like a manual tranmission, thru the service/check hole. be patient when doing this to make sure you have adequate amount of fluid in. when it takes no more and slightly dribbles out of the service hole then it is full.
. You cannot check it because its a sealed system you must go to a shop. you cannot add any tran fluid because its sealed. . Let me add something here. I just changed my transmission in my 1997 Catera. You have to raise the vehicle level. Go under and while the engine is running and up to operating temperature just like any automatic transmission. There is a filler bolt on the passenger side of the transmission. That bolt comes out and you use a pump to pump out the fluid to transmission. You know it is full when it starts to come out the hole. Fluid level suppose to be to the bottom of the thread of the bolt hole. This is very similar to manual trans-axles not hard to do once your car is up off the ground. I have changed 5 Catera Transmissions in the last 2 years. In different cars.
You add the autotranny fluid through the same tube that you pull the transmission dip stick out of. You will usually need a funnel with a long tube on it. Can get one for a couple bucks at local parts store. Hope this helps. Brad. Good Luck trying to find the dip stick! You cant add tranny fluid to these. They have a sealed unit...never needs maint. The tranny is a sealed unit and unless it is leaking you are fine.. there is no dipstick of fill. you must take it in to have it serviced ----All the answers above are wrong. Car has to be raised level. While running pull the filler plug on the passenger side of the transmission . You have to pump the trans fluid in with a tube and fill the trans pan until the fluid starts to come out. Proper fill is to the bottom of the threads. Failure to check and maintain these transmissions cause failure very often. Fluid and filter needs to be changed just like any other automatic transmission. AJRNOT. The second answer is correct i had to do that on mine because when i called the cadillac dealer they said that the catera DID NOT come out with a trans dipstick
