My oldsmobile Alero
Tomorrow i have plans to use the hoist at work and change the trans fluid/filter.
However, one catch. The 4T45-E has no dipstick, only a fill port under the TB.
So i go to my favorite alero info website aleromod.com and read up on how to do it.
"The only way I know is with the test plug: with the tranny fluid up to temperature and the motor running, be sure the car is level, and remove the test plug adjacent to where the passenger-side axle shaft comes out of the transmission. Fluid should just dribble out. If no fluid comes out, you are low. Any more than a dribble and you are over-full."
Damn. If it wasnt for my hoist at work, that would not be a user friendly job.
I also read that doing a pan drop on it only changes 3-4 quarts. Can anyone back that up?
aleromod.com by the way is an EXCELLENT source for info on the N Body car, lotsa knowledge over there!
