SOURCE: is there a drain plug for trans. fluid in 2005 chev. 1500

No there is not a drain for the transmission. You will have to pull the trans pan to change the fluid. Good Luck.

Sounds like you got it. They are heavy and ocward (spelling?). As for the front drive shaft take the bolts out and give it a couple of wacks with a dead blow hammer then slide it out. Maybe a few days before hand give it a good spray down with wd40 or like product. Also when you get to the last bolt for the t-case to trans loosen it half way then put a drain bucket under it and seperate it a little and let the trans fluid drain some, or you will be wearing it.

Once you have removed the bolts, sometimes you have to take a thin flat object and insert it inbetween the pan and the transmission as the adhesive used to seal the pan gasket will hinder the removal of the pan itself. Hope that helps.

Where is the fill in and drain plug for the transfer case?


You should see either 2 plugs with 3/8" squares or two bolt heads about 24mm. They will be on the side that faces the rear of the vehicle. One will be towards the lowest point of the transfer case. The other will be about in the middle of the transfer case. Make sure the upper one comes out before you remove the lower one to drain. If you drain it before checking you could be out of luck....

2001 chevy blazer transfer case removal


How to Remove a Chevy Blazer Rear Transfer Case The transfer case on a Chevrolet Blazer is underneath the vehicle, mounted to the rear of the transmission. On four-wheel drive vehicles, the transfer case takes power generated by the engine and channeled through the transmission and directs it to the front and rear drive axles. Over time, the gears and bearings inside the transfer case can wear and the transfer case must be rebuilt. The transfer case on this vehicle must be removed before it can be serviced.
Things You'll Need
  • Wrench set
  • Floor jack
  • Jack stands
  • Socket set
  • Masking tape
  • Marker
  • Needle-nose pliers
Hide Instructions
  1. Removing the Driveshafts
    • 1 Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal, by using a wrench to loosen the retaining bolt and pulling the clamp off the terminal.
  • 2 Raise the vehicle and support with jack stands placed underneath the frame.
  • 3 Drain the transfer case. Locate the drain plug near the bottom of the transfer case. Place a waste oil collection pan underneath the plug and use a socket to remove it. Once all the fluid has drained out, reinstall the plug.
  • 4 Remove the bolts that connect the rear driveshaft to the rear axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it backward underneath the rear axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove it from the vehicle.
  • 5 Remove the bolts that connect the front driveshaft to the front axle yoke using a socket. Lower the driveshaft, and slide it forward underneath the front axle to disengage it from the transfer case. Remove the driveshaft from the vehicle.

    REMOVAL & INSTALLATION C6
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. From in the engine compartment, remove the two upper converter housing-to-engine bolts.
    3. Disconnect the neutral switch wire at the in-line connector.
    4. Remove the bolt securing the fluid filler tube to the engine cylinder head.
    5. Raise and support the truck on jackstands.
    6. Place the drain pan under the transmission fluid pan. Starting at the rear of the pan and working toward the front, loosen the attaching bolts and allow the fluid to drain. Finally remove all of the pan attaching bolts except two at the front, to allow the fluid to further drain. With fluid drained, install two bolts on the rear side of the pan to temporarily hold it in place.
    7. Remove the converter drain plug access cover from the lower end of the converter housing.
    8. Remove the converter-to-flywheel attaching nuts. Place a wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt to turn the converter to gain access to the nuts.
    9. With the wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt, turn the converter to gain access to the converter drain plug. Place a drain pan under the converter to catch the fluid and remove the plug. After the fluid has been drained, reinstall the plug.
    10. On 2WD drive models, disconnect the driveshaft from the rear axle and slide shaft rearward from the transmission. Install a seal installation tool in the extension housing to prevent fluid leakage.
    11. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the extension housing.
    12. Disconnect the downshift and manual linkage rods from the levers at the transmission.

    How to change a tranfer case


  • Park your car in a safe place and make sure you have enough space to work around it.Raise the vehicle using a floor jack and safely support it on two jack stands. If you have a four-wheel drive model, the transfer case is located center-left of the car. Lift the left side and position the jack stands near the front and rear wheels. If you have an all-wheel drive model, the transfer case is an integral part of the transmission. Lift the front of the vehicle.Working from underneath the vehicle, locate the drain plug at the bottom of the transfer case and place a drain pan underneath. Using a wrench or ratchet, remove the drain plug. After all the transfer case fluid has been drained, reinstall the drain plug. Do not over-tighten the plug to avoid damaging the threads. Remove the drain pan from underneath the vehicle.Locate the filler plug on the side of the transfer case. Clean the filler plug and the area around it using a shop rag; this avoids contaminating the new transfer case fluid. Using a wrench or ratchet and socket, remove the filler plug. Add the new fluid to the case using a small funnel. Add oil until it reaches the bottom of the filler hole, then reinstall the filler plug but do not over tighten it.Lower the vehicle.

    How do I change the rear and front Differential fluid?


    There is a drain plug on some vehicles at the bottom side of the differential that must be removed to drain the old oil out but on others you must remove the cover which has at least ten bolts that are in a circle pattern around the differential cover. After removing the cover and draining the old oil out dry out the excess oil left inside the casing with a clean rag, scrape off any old gasket material on both the differential casing and the cover. Purchase a gasket for the cover and reinstall the cover tightening the bolts in a criss cross or X pattern not too tight . Proceed to locate the filler plug on the upper right or left side of the differential, this plug is usually removed with the square end of a 3/8" socket wrench just using the square end of the socket wrench should do it or you may need a large hex head allen wrench but usually using a short extention with the socket wrench to get the clearance to turn the square end of the extention or socket wrench inside the plug will work, some times the plug is very tight and you may need to use a 1/2' drive socket wrench with a 1/2" to 3/8" reducer or adapter to acheive the neccessary torque required to crack the filler plug free, now get a coulple of 80/90 weight gear oil quarts and cut the filler tip back a bit with a razor or utility knife and using a 3/8" length of rubber hose slide it over the end of the tip tighten a small hose clamp on to the hose to prevent it from sliding off the filler tip, then feed the end of the hose into the filler hole on the differential and invert and sqeeze the container of oil to force the oil into the differential until it fills and over flows out the filler hole, screw in the filler plug and tighten. Use this general procedure for both the front and back differentials.
