Changing transmission fluid 2004 cavalier how much do I put in
How much tranny fluid do i put in when changing on a 2004 cavalier
corrjeannieforever13 , When you say tranny fluid, I take it is an automatic. Transmission fluid is added after removing the vent cap (cap normally red) located at the top of transmission by the shift linkage. Do not overfill transmission. There is a fill level plug (may be 12mm hex head) that will have to be removed, plug is located above middle of the pan, to the left of the bell housing, a few inches from the bottom of the housing. With the vehicle at operating temperature on level ground, as soon as trans. fluid starts running from the fluid level/full hole, stop adding fluid and wait for fluid to stop running from hole,reinsert the plug, transmission is full. Link below may help in locating fill spot and full hole. You will need ATF Dexron III/Mercon fluid, approx. 6.9 quarts to refill after pan removed and filter change. Good luck.
