Tod34 is correct. The "fill" area of this transmission is located on the transmission itself. It is a fluid leveling plug located low on the main case toward the back of the trans. You must pump the fluid in through that hole. If you are on level ground and the transmission is properly warmed, you should fill the transmission until the fluid level is flush with the bottom of the hole (starts spilling out)

Pop the hood and look for the dipstick labeled transmission fluid. Check your current level when your car is warmed up on level ground and in park. Add more by dumping it right back in where the dipstick is. Should use what your manual tells you to or just use some universal dextron/mercron III type transmission fluid.

Do nothing if everything seems OK. Drain and refill, but never flush, you will stir up gunk in the pan, if you have hard or sluggish shifts

Need to add transmission fluid in Cadillac CTS 2008. How do you do it?


My 2009 CTS4 should be the same as your 2008 CTS. There is no dipstick tube to check or fill the transmission. The check plug is in the bottom of the pan. It loos like a drain plug, but it is not. The fill plug is on the passenger side of the transmission, just above the front of the oil pan. It is a plastic and rubber plug that is pulled straight up.

You'll probably be better off having it checked and filled at a dealer or trans shop.

Most like you need to flush the transmission and I would put one quart of Lucas transmission fluid in too. It will help with changing of gears.

HOW DO I CHECK THE TRANSMISION


According to the owners manual, unless you see a leak from the transmission, or have unusual driving conditions such as frequent towing, it's not necessary to check the automatic transmission fluid. By the way, if you need an owners manual, you can download a copy in pdf form for free online from several websites. Just do an internet search for 2004 Cadillac CTS owners manual free.

I have a Cadillac CTS 2004.. 3.6L V6 engine. I need to know if my car has a dipstick? And is it to check the level or just a hole to fill.


I too have the 2004 CTS.
Just today, my dealership checked my transmission fluid level because I have gear noise.

There is NO dipstick!

The car is put up on the hoist with motor running and transmission in neutral.
There is a fill / level check plug located on drivers side of transmission through which the level is checked.
