Having problems with your 2004 Pontiac Grand Am ?
Had trouble when I put it in Drive. Car didn't move. Tried all gears and nothing. Tried again and it worked. It was almost like the automatic clutch wasn't engaging. Now it doesn't move at all. Manual says I can't check the fluid. There are no smells that would indicate the clutch burned and no noises out of the ordinary to say something let loose in the transmission. Engine has about 80K on it. This car is well maintained and not driven hard.
If you have no dipstick on the transmission, you will see a fill plug on it.(usually a red cap) there is another plug that needs to be removed on or near the passenger side axle extension (on transmission). That plug needs to be removed on level ground and trans oil is added through the fill on top till it begins to run from the open plug below. (I know, dopey design) but that's how it's done)
You can't ck the oil in an automatic trans? That is interesting, because it just might be your problem. Look this up on the internet. Just type in yr make model and transmission servicing.
