m8 there is no drain plug for auto or manual on the box. you have to completely take the pan off, clean it, put new gasket and silicone

ourhowse, you may know cars, but you DON'T know the CRV. Both the automatic and manual transmission have drain plugs basically like the oil pan. Look at several of the online videos.

What motor is in the 04 Cavalier? If it’s the Eco Tech 4, you need to remove the black cover on top of the engine to access the plugs. Once you remove this cover you will see the coils and the wires for the plug are attached to this cover. Gently remove the plug wires and disconnect the electrical connector from the coils. Set this assembly aside. Using an extension and the correct size spark plug socket. Remove the plugs. With the new plugs check and verify the gap is correct prior to installing the new plugs. One the correct cap has been set, install the new plugs. It is recommend to use a piece of vacuum hose to start the threads on the plugs as to not cross thread the new plugs. One the plugs threads are started use your wrench to tighten the plugs. Do not over tighten as you can strip out the threads. Then reinstall the wires and connect up the coils, reinstall the cover and start the engine. Make sure there is no check engine light and the motor is running correctly.

2004 Aleros with auto trans DO NOT have a dipstick under the hood. They do have a filler cap, located on the driver side, look straight down under the edge of the exhaust crossover, black cap with a gear on it. According to the Manuf. the AUTOMATIC Transmission (should not need to be checked unless there is a leak) has a plug in the side just like the manual transmission. You remove the plug in the side and fill thru the top until fluid runs out the side hole. Replace the plug and the fill cap when done.

This transmission in the Alero, Grand Am, and Malibu has a fill cap. On the side of the trans near the bottom is a plug you remove to check the level; simular to a rear end or manual trans. The car needs to be running in park and jacked up level.
