SOURCE: I am trying to change

This tranny has approximately 13 quarts of fluid. Just dropping the pan and replacing the filter will yield about 5 quarts or so, with the balance still sitting in the torque converter. I recommend just doing this instead of paying someone to power flush the system. There are debates whether or not this method will damage the tranny. When I did it, I got around 6-7 quarts out of it. Use GM's new transmission fluid Dextron VI. It's much better than the old stuff. GM starting putting the Dextron VI in 2009 and newer vehicles. Make sure you know what size your pan is, there is a shallow pan and a deep pan, the deep will have a step in it, the shallow will be completely flat.

There is another way to get rid of all the fluid, but it's very time consuming and difficult if you've never done one before. Involves disconnecting the transmission fluid cooler line at the radiator and having the pump inside the tranny pump out all the fluid for you.

2004 Chevy trailblazer won't shift out of first


Have you checked transmission fluid recently. If the levels are low and/or if the dipstick smells burnt, there is a good chance your transmission is shot. Check it out & let me know; may have another idea if the fluid level checks out.

I am losing transmission fluid but can't find a leak????? where can it be going


I take it that it is an automatic transmission, if it is draining that much fluid a month and you can't find any outside leaks it could mean there is an internal leak somewhere. If you see a pink milkshake color in your coolant then it could be the radiator transmission cooler which I believe wont cause an outside leak so you can start from there. It is located and is part of the radiator. Just follow the transmission cooler line and it will lead you the possible problem.

Where is the transmission drain plug for 2004 trailblazer


Hi.

The Trailblazer transmission has no factory installed drain plug. To drain the ****** fluid you need to work from underneath the truck and drop the transmission pan off.

Im about to do a ****** filter on a 2004 chevy trailblazer 2wd shallow pan, and im not sure on how many quarts of ****** fluid i will need to refill, im thinking around 5 or 6. what do you say


Most shallow pans only take 4 quarts of transmission fluid. However I would buy 5 just to make sure. Start by adding 4 quarts start your truck check your level after it warms up and add any fluid if you need to. Remember not to over fill... I hope this helps

transmission pan must be removed to drain fluid & change filter.loosen all pan bolts,remove all but 4 bolts @ corners.strike pan with a plastic hammer or block of wood if it's stuck. slowly remove remaining bolts,allowing fluid to drain into a suitable container.this can get messy,have rags handy.when drained,remove pan,clean pan & transmission gasket surfaces.pull filter straight down,push new filter on to tube,positioned as original,install new gasket,'run down 'all pan bolts then tighten them securely.
