    I'm not familliar with that one, but since 99.9% of the others fill through the dipstick hole, I'd check there. There might even be a blurb in your owners manual about where to add it when it's low...

    I googled 4T65E & found this forum. Ha, that's a transaxle, no dipstick. It explains the fill cap & the level sight plug & tells it is on the passenger side near the axle. It also cautions against taking the plug out unless the engine is running as the fluid will pour out. It gives complete instructions for fill/check etc. It says '06 Malibu but is the 4T65E

    Got 'er up, filled, and running this AM.

    Changed the motor oil as well, while I had the drain pan out and the car up off the floor.
    Wasn't nearly as dirty a job as usual with a transmission fluid change.
    Took My good ole time, allowing her to drain slow and into the pan, and not onto the floor.

    It was good of You to help with the search, Stephan...TY! :glasses:
