One suggestion is to use a syphon pump via the filler tube. Another is to disconnect one of the cooler lines going to the radiator.

Loosen the trans pan

You could remove a cooler line,
but I think that is asking for trouble

remove the fill plug before you do anything. If you can not remove the fill plug there is no reason to remove the drain plug since you will not be able to fill the transmission once the fluid is drained out.

Once the fill plug is out, remove the drain plug. Let oil drain into a drain pain. Reinstall the drain plug. Fill the transmission with the appropriate fluid until the fluid starts to drain from the fill hole. Reinstall the fill plug. Your good to go.

How to change transmission fluid on 2005 Chevy Express


Purchase trans fluid & filter kit from parts store. With vehicle parked and wheels chocked, undo trans pan slowly loosening bolts allowing one corner to allow fluid to drain (into a catch container of course). Pull pan once drained, remove old gasket, undo screws holding filter in place, replace with new filter, attach gasket to pan, retighten pan, refill.

Can't locate fluid eservoir to add trans fluid


Here how to do it: If you see no signs of leaking from the transmission then the level is probably not low, take it to a transmission shop, transmission repair on this car is not for the DYI.

Ensure that the transaxle case temperature is 70° to 90° F (21° to 32° C). With the engine running, shift transmission through all gears. With engine idling in PARK, remove the check plug from the transmission. If transmission has been overfilled, allow fluid to drain out. If no fluid drains out, add fluid through the TRANS FLUID fill cap under the hood on the driver side in 1 pint (0.5 liter) increments until it slightly flows from the check plug. Reinstall the check plug.
