I just bought a 98 Catera and after reading the manual and searchung under
the hood for an hr I cant figure out how to chech the trans fluid or add
some if needed. Can someone help me figure this out? Thanks in advance.
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
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.

I have one and was confronted by same issue but when going through the
maunal they say you do not even need to change the trans. fluid except you
use the car like a Taxi, delivery vehicle, tow a lot, climb hills etc.
