Take the bolts out of the pan, make sure you leave a bolt in on each of the corners, I think you have a 700r4 4 speed auto with overdrive. Once you have the bolts out, except the corners get your drain pan ready, start with whatever side you want the fluid to come out of, take those bolts loose, but not out, your fluid should start to leak out, if not take a screwdriver and bust the seal loose from the pan to the tranny. Be patcient or your gonna make a big mess. Once you get the fluid drained, the filter just pulls right off, and the new one snaps right back in. Clean all the old gasket material off the pan and tranny, glue the new gasket down on the pan, replace the pan on the tranny...with the right tools you can do this job in under a hour. Brake parts cleaner works good on cleaning up the pan and under the tranny. A filter change is always worth it, one of the most overlooked and easy tranny failure prevent jobs you can do.

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.

1999 ford explorer no reverse tries to engage but kicks out


The first thing to go in a transmission is usually reverse. Find the cheapest place to have it rebuilt before the rest goes. Alternatly you can try to replace the transmission filter. Fords usually have a 12 bolt tranny pan and the kit comes with filter and new gasket. Also, u may lose a few quarts of fliud after you remove the pan.

Fault 715 shift solenoid for a 1999 s10


The shift solenoid is what changes the gears in a gm auto tranny. To change it you just need to drop the tranny pan and remove the filter. You'll see a plug with to wires attached to a plastic and metel piece. Remove the plug and the soleniod just pulls out. If you order the part first(about $25) you'll be able to recognize the old one when you drop the pan. You may as well just buy a filter kit while you at it(about $20). It comes with the filter and a new pan gasket which you will need anyway.

Change transmission fluide in 1999 Jeep Cherokee


To change the transmission fluid you drop the transmission pan should be about 16 bolts. Once that is off you will see the filter. Buy the kit from a local auto parts store and look to see what the filter looks like. Check your transmission fluid once you drain to see metallic look in it if so i would suggest a transmission flush.

I would like to change the transmision fluid in my 1996 s-10 pickup 4.3 eng any advice???


Unfortunately GM didn't put a drain plug in the transmission pans. You'll need a transmission service kit which will have the filter and new pan gasket. Put a large catch can under the pan, loosen all the bolts and crack the pan loose from the transmission and allow the fluid to leak out. Next remove all but two bolts letting the fluid drain as you go. With one hand on the bottom of the pan supporting it remove the last two bolts. Lower the pan down and drain the rest of the fluid out. The rest is pretty simple and hopefully less messy. Wiggle the transmission filter out, remove the grommet and replace it with the one supplied in the kit. Clean the pan, especially the magnet of metal shavings. Clean the gasket surfaces. Place the new gasket on the pan and thread a bolt in each corner into the gasket. Bolt the pan up and refill with transmission fluid.

1999 gmc suburban rpms go up but car does,nt go any faster


Have you checked the transmission fluid level?  Also, have you changed the transmission filter?  I would definately do these two before I would take it to a shop.  A typical transmission filter/gasket kit costs about $10-15 for that truck.  And the transmission fluid will run around $2-4 per quart.
Changing the filter is easy.  You will just take the transmission pan off and then pull the filter out, replace the filter, and then replace the pan gasket.  Then bolt it all back up and fill it with fluid!  It's that simple.

2002 Chevy Malibu Transmission Filter Change...


Not very hard by all means if you have a few basic hand tools, a torque wrench and ramps or a jack and stand to lift the car up...

About 95% of automotive automatic transmissions do not have a drain plug, so you have to remove the transmission pan to drain the fluid, and the filter is up under the pan anyway. Remove all the pan bolts, drop the pan, make sure you have a container ready for the oil under it... If you buy the filter/pan gasket kit and you look at the filter it should be a pinch to spot. 649425d.jpg This is what your particular filter looks like (from the top)

Replace the filter, clean the pan/transmission mating surface with emery cloth, scuff pad, or whatever needs to be used to get the metal clean again (without removing too much material eg. a grinder would definitely cause a leak).

Reinstall the pan with the new gasket (do not use silicone or any type of fluid "gasket maker" Automatic transmissions have a lot of tiny oil passages which can easily be blocked by these products and cause severe transmission damage)

Torque the bolts to the manufacturer's spec (you don't really need a torque pattern, just start from the middle of the pan and alternate from side to side (this is to make sure the pan seats square with the transmission body)) 90% of the time you could tighten them anyway you want and wouldn't have a leak but you want it done right the first time so don't take any chances (you should be able to get the torque value from the parts store where you get the filter/gasket kit). I'm not able to pull out an exact spec for you right now.

Fill the tranny up, then drive th
