Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

Need to change the transmission filter in '99 chevy suburban 2wd.

5.7L engine. Transmission pan has 16 bolts. Some have 17. Transmission shudders on take off, has trouble shifting and is slipping. Replaced the rear speed sensor as recommended by the diagnostic machine I no longer have access to. No help. Is the filter the next step? Or are there other options?

If it has over 100,000 miles or so, don't do a complete fluid exchange. Drop the pan, change the filter, and add 2 bottles of Lucas trans. additive. No premises but it's better than a new trans. Worth a try.

How to tell the difference from oil pan and transmission oil pan when changing motor oil on 2001 chevy suburban 4x4 5.3


The transmission pan is usually fartherdown towards to driveshaft, and the oil pan is on the more side toward the driver side. You can jack your car up, and there is a 15mm bolt located under the oil pan, and it should say oil on it, it could get greasy and dirty and you might not be able to see the "OIL" imprinted to the oil drainage bolt.

I need to know how to change the transimission filter on a 1996 ford thunderbird v8. Or at lest where to find a diagram on how to do it


Copied from AutoZone.com:


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION


See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle on jackstands.
  2. Place a drain pan under the transmission.
  3. Loosen the pan attaching bolts and drain the fluid from the transmission.

Always place used fluids and oils into a sealed storage container and take to an approved recycling collection facility. Never dump used fluids or oils on the ground or in a trash receptacle. Contamination to the environment can and will occur.
  1. When the fluid has drained to the level of the pan flange, remove the remaining pan bolts working from the rear and both sides of the pan to allow it to drop and drain slowly.

Some AOD transmissions will have a plastic plunger type plug floating loosely in the pan when draining the fluid. It is of no importance and was used in the assembly process of the transmission. Discard it before reinstallation of pan.
  1. When all of the fluid has drained, remove the pan and clean it thoroughly. discard the pan gasket. If equipped, remove the pan magnet.

0900c1528006bc41.jpg enlarge_icon.gifenlarge_tooltip.gif Fig. Fig. 2: On some vehicles, such as this 1995, you must remove and clean the pan magnet
To install:
  1. Place a new gasket on the pan, then install the pan on the transmission. If equipped, don't forget to install the pan magnet. Tighten the pan attaching bolts as follows:

    C3 and C5 Transmissions: 12-16 ft. lbs. (16-22 Nm) A4LD Transmissions: 8-10 ft. lbs. (11-13.5 Nm) AOD Transmissions: 71-119 inch lbs. (8-13 Nm) 4R70W Transmissions: 9-11 ft. lbs. (12-15 Nm)
  2. Add the correct type and quantity of fluid to the transmission through the filler tube.
  3. Lower the vehicle. Start the engine and move the gear selector through shift pattern. Allow the engine to reach normal operating temperature.
  4. Check the transmission fluid. Add fluid, if necessary, to maintain correct level.


FILTER SERVICE


See Figure 3

To install:
