I have a 2000 pontiac sunfire - I need to check the trans fluid but I do not have a dipstick and I was told there is no distick - so how to I check the trans fluid
it is to the right of the motor, near the break fluid
You are correct, there is no dipstick on this vehicle. On the right-hand (driver's side) of the engine, below the distributor cap, the transmission should be visible. On top of the trans is an allen-head bolt which serves as the transaxle fluid fill plug. Unplug this to check fluid level in the trans.
I have 2002 Pontiac Sunfire and ran into same problem. I have found the service plug but still can't find out what I'm supposed to see when I remove it. Love the car but it is service nightmare for owner maintenance.
I have a 1998Pontiac Sunfire and im having the same problem. I cant find where to check the transmission fluid there is no dipstick and the owner's manual is no help.
