SOURCE: transmission fluid in brake system

Your braking system will need to be flushed (all of the brake fluid completely removed) and refilled. If left in the braking system, the wrong fluid could end up ruining the brake calipers, brake master cylinder, rubber brake hoses, and other brake components – leading to brake failure.

SOURCE: transmission fluid on 06 equinox

Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.

SOURCE: can't find where to add

Hi, In most cases. To add more tranny fliud you can put it in the dip stick hole. Just keep checking the level, and don't over fill. Also use a funnel to aviod spills. Be glad you did it youself and avoid expensive mechanics that will charge you an arm and a leg.

2006 Chevy equinox transmission. Making a dull whirring noise in 4th & 5th gear.automatic 5 speed transmission.On a 2006 Chevy Equinox.


It could a wheel bearing. See if the noise gets louder at higher speeds. If it does trying jiggling the steering wheel (in a safe manner) from left to right and see if the noise gets higher or lower. If it does then you have a front wheel bearing that is bad. If not then if could be a rear wheel bearing. If none of these apply to you then try checking your transmission fluid level and fluid condition. It is posible you could have an internal transmission issues. The fluid should be bright red. If brown or black I would consider taking it to a transmission shop to it further looked into.

Do I need a transmission flush on my 2006 equinox, 97,000 miles


It is a good idea to have your transmission fluid/filter changed at every 50k miles. If you're having any problem with your transmission shifting, hesitating etc I'd get it tested/diagnosed by a transmission shop before doing anything.

Hi, where do i find the dipstick to check the trans fluid on a 06 chevy equinox?


this model doesn't have a transmission fluid dip stick, it is a sealed transmission, there is a fill plug on the case of the transmission just above the pan in most cases, the fluid should be just below the plug, u must access this from under the car.

How to check transmission fluid level


Unfortunately you can not. Chevy put sealed transmissions on most of their cars starting in 2006. It would be out of luck if you got one without a sealed transmission. If you did, look behind the engine on the passenger side for a dipstick similar to your oil dipstick. If you dont see one, you will have to go to the dealership to have it checked.
