Be careful because there will be some fluid in there. And make sure to torque it corrctly as well. The gasket will hold the bolts into place. I don't want to drive this thing if I am going to risk killing the transmission. No information contained in this video shall create any expressed or implied warranty or guarantee of any particular result. He'll even pay for shipping. Like I said, I start all the bolts in first, and then tighten them up preliminarily.
Either redneck flush or take it to someone with a machine. Kind of a dark purple. It's been 30,000 to 90,000 miles and 3 to 5 years. It should look like this. At this point, I figure I should just give up and let the dealer deal with it before something becomes a major problem.
Drain mostly from this corner. Parked the truck for the night, and checked the fluid level in the morning. Fluid will start pumping out the tube into the bucket. Now just replace these 15mm nuts. Just make sure that you don't cross-thread them into the transmission, and we'll fast-forward here. Start the engine, and as the old fluid is pumped out, add fresh fluid to the pan. This ideal was only based on those horror stories I've read.
Your owners manual tells you exactly what the fluid capacity is for a pan change and a complete change. Amain bearing seal will be harder to find. I though I might do a write up since I haven't seen a how to with pics. The only way to see which it is, is to pull the trans and flywheel off and see where it's coming from. At this point, I am concerned that fluid may not be pumping out of the reservoir if that's possible , and that perhaps the fluid is not moving through the radiator, etc.
I am just trying to close some of the gap, and take care of my cars as much as I can, by myself. There are three 15mm nuts holding it on each side. At this point, you're going to start flushing the system. My thought was that by replacing less than 50% of the fluid, I could get a slight change in the fluid before doing a full fluid replacement. Now start all the bolts in, and I always start them by hand first. Test drove the car, and experienced a high pitched whine in 1st and 2nd, though shifting seemed normal otherwise.
Take your new transmission pin and put the gasket into place. You then filled i up with 5qts. Basically thinking that there are hundreds of stories out there of people who never service their transmissions, and the minute they do, poop hits the fan. This process can be done entirely with hand tools; we're just going to use some air tools to speed up the process. Your car must have an Chevrolet Tahoe automatic transmission filter to perform properly.
In this video, we're going to show you how to service your transmission, and this is recommended every 100,000 miles. Am still considering the redneck flush, actually bought a bucket last night to catch the fluid. Obtain the total system capacity of the vehicle from the manufacturer. As I said about 100 times in that thread, I was recalling a specific instance with my Impala. When refilling, remove dipstick to provide adequate venting and allow oil to flow into crankcase. Please feel free to call us toll-free, 888-844-3393. At this point, it meets both given the temperature condition, although it required far less fluid than it should.
After you've done that, just go back to the dipstick, pull it out, and wipe it down. Personally, I would either disconnect the trans cooler lines and do a redneck flush discharge line in bucket, intake line in new fluid or just pay a trusted shop to do a full flush with a machine. As for this point, I was aware of that as well. A dirty air filter will cause your Tahoe to lose 1 - 3 mpg, depending on your driving, you can save 70 - 100 gallons of gas per year simply by changing your filter regularly. When hot, check and fill to line on dipstick. Avoid scratching the metal and make sure the pans gasket surface isnt bent or distorted.
It will be much less messy. You need to change all the fluid which requires a more involved change. I've had them done on vehicles in the past without issue, and hopefully this will be the same. Just don't get the one that looks similar from Home Depot. As I had swapped diff fluid on the jeep, I didn't figure dropping the pan was a big deal.
