Re: Transmission oil Rodeo 2004 6V1-D1 (V6-3.5l)
Sealed transmission WONT HAPPEN. YOU CAN ONLY DO A DRAIN AND REFILL ON THE TRANSMISSION. THERES A DRAIN PLUG ON THE TRANSMISSION ALL YOU DO IS DRAIN AND PUT BACK 5.4 QUARTS IN AND TIGHTEN THE DRAIN PLUG.

first run the fault codes
next have the transmission oil pressure checked
change the oil and have the oil filter changed
while the pan is off check out for damage
Then make a decision on a transmission rebuild.
The filter doesn't take any oil, but when they figure the quantity, they figure either filter change or rebuild, the filter change uses about 5 quarts and the rebuild is 12 quarts. I don't have the exact amounts in front of me, but if you need them,I can look them up. Also, I am not familiar with the Holden dual cab, But most automatics are about the same. Hope this helps.
depends on the mechanic,weither they are fleet fitters or dealer ,the dealers will change everything regardless because of the profit on the parts .A fleet fitter will only change whats necessary because if he changes everything then the boss will soon sack him for wasting the firms money.
Everybody knows that you change the oil filter for your engine and your engine oil. The one fact that most people DO NOT KNOW, is that this is true for automatci transmissions too. Yes, it is a little know fact by the masses that you should have your tranny fluid changed and tranny filter & magnets changed (if equipped).
For example, a few days ago I had a worried customer call me and tell me she could not afford a $1500 transmission. I assured her that the starting point wa to do a transmission service for her car. Her car did not have a tranny pan and tranny filter, so all we did was drain her ATF (automatci transmission fluid) and I noticed it was dark and almost even black. New ATF should be red like Kool-Aid. This was a sign this tranny oil was no good. I refilled her car and took it for a test drive. I was happy to find that the shifting had improved immediately. She was so happy when she got her car back.
Remember, you change your oil right? WELL, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID A TRANSMISSION SERVICE? Most people say "never" or " I don't think it has ever been done before"
Some people do this every 12,000 to 25,000 miles or once ever 2 years.
Do this and this will be your starting point. If this does not work (and this does work the majority of the time); then you may need to send the car to a tranny specialist and have the tranny rebuilt or replaced.
they should have suggested changing tranny screen and filter if tranny isnt maintained every 20,000to 30,000 you end up with gray like particles from normal wear wich get caught in the screen and valve body wich leads to erractic shifting valve body problems eventually tranny replacement number 1 rule oil changes on motor and screen and filter on tranny prevents premature wear longer life to two major key factors
Yes it does matter. Remember your filter is a screen that the oil flows over. If it is clogged it will not allow clean oil past it and to some extent will be like you are low on oil or high if the oil can not flow.
Change the filter and look for metal deposits in both the fluid and the filter. Minute shavings like sand or smaller is normal as long as there is not a lot. If you see a lot or see big particles then gears have been ground and you are looking at trouble. Get fixed early. Otherwise if filter is clean and fluid is fine and tranny still does this they make additives for tranny's to help with slipping. I use tranny medic. Follow the directions as you will need to drain some of the fluid out. Also do not add to your tranny unless you have met or exceeded the mileage specs on the bottle of the tranny medic. Hope this helped.
try checking the fluid level in the gearbox,rodeo dont have a dipstick so u have to undo the plug on the side of the gearbox just like a manual gearbox.if the oil is really low i suggest doing a full service on the gearbox,change the oil and filter is ideal for better results.
