how to change transmission fluid in a ve Calais v8


Raise the Commodore with the jack and lower it onto a pair of jack stands while it is parked on a flat surface. Engage the emergency brake to prevent it from rolling while on the stands. Slide under the engine and look for the transmission gearbox. This is a round metal tank with a pipe on either end. Place a collection pan beneath the gearbox.
Remove the fill plug bolt on with the 1/2-inch socket wrench. This bolt is located on the pipe coming from the rear of the gearbox. Remove the drain plug bolt on the front pipe using the same socket wrench. Wait 10 to 15 minutes for the fluid to drain completely from the gearbox.
Fill the fluid pump with 3 quarts of transmission fluid. Place the plastic tube in the fill plug and pump until liquid starts dripping from the plug. Reattach the fill plug. Raise the Commodore above the jack stands. Remove the stands and lower the car to the ground.

removing a transmission 2006 impala 6 cylinder 3.5L


Hi there.
If your car is a Rear wheel drive then its rather easy.
Jack up the car and put it on stands all at the same height,drain the g/box oil from the trans/box and fit a trolley jack under the g/box and another one under the engine sump, remove remove all parts as required under the bonnet such as top hose any hoses pipes cables and battery term (neg) g/b/cross member, tail shaft, starter motor,all bell housing bolts and linkage speedo cable and wires,there should be a metal plateon bottom 1/2 of housing and can be removed if not then there should be able to get at the convertor bolts 4 or 6 from the starter motor hole and undo them NOW with everything removed 2 people can either try to lift out the gearbox OR a trolley jack in place of the rear jack and lower them both down untill you can slide the box out with the covertor as well ///refit new box with convertor fitted to g/box before fitting to engine.
Its a big job so get it right first time as its heavy and can KILL SOME ONE.
