Question about 2005 GMC Safari

1 Answer

What type transmission fluid? Synthetic Max ATF by Royal Purple?

Would it be advised to exchange the transmission fluid in my 2005 Safari GMC van? It has 44,000 miles and was in a water flood situation. The fluids were renewed after the flood, but I am still worried about the transmission and want to get it flushed. If I do I was thinking of using Royal Purple Max ATF for the transmission. I know its expensive, but i'm willing to do it.

If it has been in a flood, change it. Water will eat the valve body and pump gaskets. Even if it has been changed once, you won't get it all. Changing it a second time is a good idea. Use Dexron VI

I have a 2000 GMC safari van 2-wheel drive. When it shifts to 3rd it seems to jump into neutral. What can cause this? Changed transmissions and it is doing the same thing


My local transmission specialst tells me that ALL GM van transmissions run hot. Especially within the Safari/Astro design - that doesn't reflect the wind very well (compared to today's smaller mini-vans). He recommends ATF aux cooler (LPD Design) be installed in all Safari / Astro vans - even non-towing vans. For example, Hayden 678 or 679 LPD design.

re: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/HDA-678/

If wondering, I installed Hayden 679 in my prev AWD Safari van and installed Hayden 678 in my wife's smaller size GM mini-VAN. re: http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-UpperSupport-2.jpg &http://i178.photobucket.com/albums/w251/Spike99-Pictures/Montana%20Van/AuxTransC- ooler-LowerSupport-1.jpg

As a suggestion, install the LPD aux cooler design (re: Tru-cool or Hayden 678 or 679) in your "running hot" GM van. These ATF coolers work great in my GM vans...

Hi im trying to find where i put transmission oil in my 1990 toyota camry with an inline four


If you are talking about an Automatic Transmission, you pull out the Transmission dip stick and add the transmission fluid though that hole. The capacity for the 1990 Camry is 2.6 Quarts. THEN you have the differential section of the transmissioin. That takes 1.7 Quarts. The differential section has a plug at the bottom of the transmission to drain it and another plug on the side of the transaxle case to fill it. You fill it until it overflows out of the side hole. That is 1.7 Quarts. Both parts of the transmission take Dexron II transmission fluid. It is not the same as Dexron IV and is not backwards compatible. I use Royal Purple Max ATF for both parts of this transmission.

Fluid type in 1985 gmc sierra k2500 4x4 aluminum transfer case


You can use the same ATF as the transmission or a synthetic ATF for GM Transmission. Most guys will use normal ATF and mix Lucas ATF transmission additive to it, to make the fluid last longer. Good luck and hope this helps. There was two types of transfer case available to your truck. NP205 takes 5.1 pints NP208 takes 10.0 pints
