Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05 Pontiac grand am that
has a bad slipping in it. I think it
might be the transmission so I
wanted to check the fluid level but I
can't get to it from top of the hood
so I was wondering if there is an
easier way to do it like maybe from
underneath the hood maybe

There is no easy way there is a plug on the side of transmission it has to be removed and fluid will run out of this if transmission fluid is full.

bullshit. you have to take your car to a mechanic and it has to be put up on a rack to c heck it. that is the only way. you can not get to it yourself and check it i work on cars and thats the only correct way to check it.
