Default 2005 Classic Tranny fluid-

Well, I bought this car from an auction. It has 82k on it and I am getting frustrated. Its an automatic 2.2 ECOTECH. I do not know where to check my tranny fluid.
Does it have a dip stick? if so, where?
I dont have an owners manual. Looked online- cant find a straight answer.

I think my fluid is leaking and I need to check it soon.

Please Help.

Welcome to the forum. Yours should have the 4T40-E (MN4) transaxle which lacks a dipstick. The owner's manual will tell you to take it in to the service department. They'll warm it up, raise it on the lift, and then check the fluid level at the plug (see FLUID LEVEL SCREW on the passenger side view http://cid-54465800aad91b49.office.l.../87951085L.gif).

Welcome to here. My '06 Malibu is the same way. It was kind of funny to try to check the fluid the first time.
