Question about 2002 Chevrolet Venture Passanger
How to change the transmission fluid at home?
Get new fluid, pan gasket and filter.
Put vehicle on ramps.
Starting at one corner, use ratchet to loosen and remove bolts from pan. Be sure to have a drain pan directly under the corner that drops to allow fluid to be collected. Do not remove any bolt before loosening all the bolts first, and slowly work from the same corner. You do not want to bend the flange on the pan.
Drop pan out of the way, remove/clean away old gasket, clean up pan, and pan bolts, apply light coating of gasket sealer to flange and apply new gasket.
Remove and replace filter. Check pan mating surfaces on tranny and make sure they are clean.
Reinstall pan into place by starting all bolts before tightening. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS OR THE PAN WILL LEAK! Rotate around the pan, tightening each bolt slightly to no more than about 10 ft ponds of torque. A 1/4 inch ratchet is best used for this procedure.
Refill tranny with the amount of fluid removed into the drain pan.
This procedure will not replace any fluid in the torque converter, and generally most vehicles have no way of changing the torque converter fluid.
