MES,
The Catera is equiped with a Sealed Transmission. The fluid does not need to be checked or changed for 100,000 miles. If it is acting funny, check for an electrical problem first before going inside the tranny. There is a bolt on the side of the transmission that can be pulled and the level checked at the hole, it should be to the top, but if it is not leaking it is probably full. Find a competent electrical mechanic to run a diagnostic on your car before any physical repairs. Also be aware that used transmissions can be had for as little as $700.00 on the internet before doing any major overhaul. Hope that helps.
