Question about 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE
Draining the system is easy,,It can be messy,, loosen the transmission oil pan bolts slowly allowing the pan to drop down fluid will spill out ..Checking the trans fluid , The transmission and fluid must be at 80 degrees celcius..and the car raised level and remove the 10 mm threaded plug at the passenger side of the trans on the tailstock end and if fluid comes out then its at the proper level..add fluid at the red cap located on top of the trans..at the drivers side....good luck

This car does not have a auto trans dipstick, the level can only be checked by the dealer, this is a growing trend that started with most German cars, the filter is inside the trans pan and only needs changing every 60,000 miles.

Well, there could be several possible problems. It is not uncommon to have a little harder shifting after a fluid change for a period if the system was low prior to the change however, If you had the fluid changed using one of those reverse flush machines I see the problem getting worse. Most stations want to use the back flush system to do a fluid change now days. That is because the newer model vehicle have a metal filter screen which is re-usable and is designed at the factory to use Synthetic Fluid. In the older model vehicles, 2000 to 2005, manufacturers where still mixing the types of filters that were being used. This model has a standard filter that model uses the newer filter. If you went to Jiffy Lube and didn't specify you wanted a regular Fluid and Filter change they hooked it to the machine and charged $140+ for the job. A regular Filter and fluid change with regular fluid would have run about $50. Every time, and I mean Every time, I have had a fluid change using that back flush machine on a vehicle within 6 months I have had to have the Transmission repaired at a shop. If you didn't have the fluid changed using that backflush machine then your problem is just adjustment to the new fluid being at the proper level. If you did, start saving for a Transmission rebuild at a shop, it's not far away.

SOURCE: How to change the transmission
according to my alldata book this vehicle doesnt need the tranny oil changed ,if it fails then its a exchange gearbox ,if you have a dipstick for the tranny then just undo the tranny sump bolts and drain it this way but my honest advice is if it works well leave well alone as the oil shouldnt get dirty or deteroriate as its only a hydraulic pumping oil but if its dirty then the bands and the clutch are worn so it will require a overhaul anyway as it will give up the ghost before long
