Last april, I had the transmission fluid and filter replaced at an arizona service station, then I drove to minnesota, during the trip, I notices the transmission slipping, I took it to a chevrolet dealership in minnesota for repair, they rebuilt the transmission and said the problem was that the filter was missing, the service station argues that the missing filter did not cause the problem, whos is right?
You are if the filter was missing then they had to over fill the trans.so that it could pick up fluid from the pan.If the trans got low on fluid it would have sucked air into the trans.and caused it to slip on burned the clutches due to lack of lubercation

Check your transmission fluid to make sure it is at the correct level and that it is clean. It is possible that you may have a clogged filter, when was the last time the transmission was properly serviced with a fluid and filter change?
There isn't one answer for this topic. The 4L60E transmission isn't a bad trani but if the fluid isn't changed on-time. Debris will accumulate inside the Valve Body and clog/restrict screens and shift solenoids. I think that you will want to first look at the fluid level and condition. Look at the repair/service history (when was the fluid and filter last changed?). If the service has bean done then send it in for repair. There may be one of several things going on inside. The fluid pressure will need to be checked. The pump will need to be tested. The valve-body may need to be dropped down and inspected for obstructions. My last suggestion would be to look at the air filter, fuel system and the exhaust. A clogged air or fuel filter will affect transmission performance. Also a restriction inside the CAT or the Muffler can affect it as well. I hope that helps. If you have more details or questions. Please let me know. Good luck.
Forget the dash reminder gadgets or manufacture maintenance schedules You change trans fluid every 3 years If you want to change at 30,000 miles that's perfect,just don't go past 3 years & do power steering at same time
Well,if you have not done so already. Get a transmission filter kit.Change the fluid,replace the gasket. Transmission fluid does lose viscosity. If you have already done this,i recommend a ****** shop.It could be any number of things inside the transmission,like linkage.
Hello: Under normal light duty use ie; used like a car back and forth to work no heavy loads daily GM states 150,000 miles. Heavy duty use 30000 yo 50000. Service with the new dexron 3. Replace the filter.
Have a complete service done on your truck. When your fluids are changed, have the technician look for metal particles in them. While some are common, if a lot are present, it may indicate sever wear. I would look for this especially in the engine oil. Though I doubt any damage was done, that was for sure very stressful on your truck. I didn't know that a truck would go that fast in 4low. Also watch the behavior of your transmission and engine. Your transfer case should be shifted a few times too.
