Hey Everyone!! First time poster here. My 2016 Equinox with the 2.4 had a slight front axle leak. It's got 60K on it, so I figured I'd drain the transmission fluid, measure how much came out, and replace it. I did all that and the car is running fine. I do know that some fluid did leak out at one point. I would like to know what the Chevrolet service manual states as far as the official procedure for checking the fluid level. I get different answers from everyone I ask. I'm tempted to buy a Haines manual, but, I'm pretty sure it will tell me that "It's a sealed unit and should be checked by a certified Chevrolet profesional" At that point, I will have wasted $30 and will throw the manual directly in to my fire pit. I don't know why they didn't put a dip stick in these units. I appreciate any and all feedback on this one!!

I think there's a plug on the transmission you can remove, then stick your finger in to see if the fluid comes up to the level of the bottom of the plug hole. BUT I never was able to find it when I was crawling around under the car looking.

I saw how to check and fill or change out on a YouTube vid. I had to surf around a bit to find the right year. Also try the Terrain forum. Tons of stuff on the Equinox there
