The owner's manual said that I don't need to check the trans fluid level, unless something is wrong. As I get to know my Cobalt, pop the hood, I don't see where the trans dip stick is. Is it under the massive plastic covers?

Going back to that logic, if I don't check it, how would I know there is a problem, where I do need to check it.

What do you say? Do you check your auto trans fluid?

There is no trans fluid dipstick.

what kind of driving do you do? that'll tell you when to change it.

I myself won't be changing mine until about 50,000 miles just because I want to be safe and it's not that expensive. The owners manual and the dealership both say not to change an 06' 2.2l until 100,00 miles.

I do day-to-day granny style of driving for max MPG in the city.

I agree with GM's reasoning. In 25 years of owning cars, I don't think I ever had to add any trans fluid in many brands of cars I've owned. Maybe I've just been lucky.

Now if that's the case, why do auto makers even make a fluid dipstick for the auto trans for the past 60+ years? They might as well make it sealed so there is no chance from owners getting dirt or oil in it.
