i have a 2010 2.4 malibu i want to inspect the tranny fluid level indigenous what i know the only way to examine it is under the tranny there a bolt i have to open and also see if liquid in it favor checking a hand-operated tranny ofcouse the vehicle has to be level so i will be having all 4 next on jack stand.has anyone done this or recognize for certain where the bolt on it that i have to open ar would be great i know where the black color fill cap is ~ above the tranny i open up it however it bone dry.
Edit: Forgot come ask, perform you have actually the 4 speed or the 6 rate auto? The procedure is basically the same, but I was giving you info for the 4 speed. You would certainly be correct around the bolt ~ above the side of the instance to examine the level. The automobile has to be level, running, and warm. A little of a ache in the behind to carry out in the driveway. Don"t open it when the car isn"t running, or girlfriend will shed a an excellent bit of fluid. It"s been a while due to the fact that I"ve to be under there, however I think the bolt is ~ above the left side of the tranny. This picture should provide you a an excellent idea where it is. Also, that is 10mm.

Just a note: also though the image over is for a 4-speed transmission, the 6-speed check/fill bolt is in a comparable location. Because that the 6-speed transmission:The 4-cylinder version supplies bolts ~ above the next to check/fill the fluid and to drain it.The 6-cylinder version has actually a appropriate cap v dipstick (cable with significant metal weight) and also a small bolt on the underside to drain the fluid. Ns did mine and it to be easy.

Wow :surprise: many thanks for the video. Ns been understanding this procedure and always think the it is facility and no practical. However I walk not know that for certain until seeing this video clip today. The challenge is how have the right to you know if the auto is actually "balanced"? i wish over there is "Level" on the auto so you have the right to tell . Yet going with all the hurdle: idling to the exactly temperature, jack the automobile up so it can be leveled. These 2 things are not simple to verify. Then ultimately removing the plug ..... OMG i don"t recognize why GM do it that way, instead of the traditional stick.I to be glad the I have actually never make the efforts that. I will certainly stick v my pragmatic an approach that was discussed in various other thread: 6 quart without filter change. 7 quarts with filter change.
Simple version:Drive the car a few miles, come earlier home and also lift it up on jack stands. So lengthy as it"s quite level, how can it be the the infectious diseases world fashion is so sensitive to being off level a bit? If the liquid is low, it"s low, add some. If it"s also full, it"ll come out.If the trans is doing not have a quart or more, not having actually the car perfectly level is less of an worry than including some liquid so it have the right to do that is job.GM is do it the end to it is in some kind of strange science to get it right. The ain"t that hard!Back once I had my engine replaced the transmission was shifting perfectly no matter how much gas I offered it. (Mine is the V6 version through a cap.) After ns serviced the trans liquid it started slipping into 2nd from first when i was putting on the coals, yet when accelerating less it change fine. All the various other gears shifted just fine. I measured how much came out through capturing all of it in a pan, then putting it right into a container v a measure up line. I refilled the trans with the exact same amount, confirm the level, and also was to solve I had actually refilled it properly. ~ a pair weeks of that slipping in the 1-2 shifts I lastly removed the lid after getting home one day and also there was nothing ~ above the dipstick. I included 2 an ext quarts prior to it also touched the dipstick, and more than 1 more before it got to the hash marks. Drained the end 3, put earlier 6½! I figure that they never filled it correctly at the dealership, also though they have all the technical data and also training necessary to perform the task right. If a certified tech can"t do it however this ol" hillbilly can, don"t permit it stop you from mirroring some gumption and doing that yourself. You have no guarantee the the certified tech will actually do what they"re payment to do, but they"ll most definitely take your money and thank you for supporting their habit!Now, go the end there and also "get "er done!"
