Changing transmission oil

To change the auto transmission fluid in your car you have some choices, if you just want to replace the fluid and filter that will replace about 3-4 quarts of the trans fluid, this requires the pan on the bottom of the trans be removed (there is no drain plug), the filter is inside, this is very messy. If you wish to do a complete fluid exchange you will first need to remove the filter and replace it, then have the transmission flushed with a special machine that pumps out all of the old fluid and replaces it with new fluid, most oil change shops do this service as well as the dealer, the dealer charges about the same and i would take it there.

I have a 2005 chevy tahoe...i just bought it, and the transmission still has a pink color to it..but it smells a little burnt...should i do a transmissions fluid exchange or not?

Hi there,

I would have to say YES, YES, YES !!!!

Modern transmissions are an amazing piece of electronic/mechanical machinery, but they rely on a special trans fluid (with special properties) to keep the internal components conditioned, keep pressures up and to prevent premature malfunction from overheating.

Trans fluid can be compared to our own blood - bad cholesterol levels in human blood will cause heart attacks...the same could be said for auto transmissions, containing bad trans fluid.

Until recently, manufacturers were slow to admit that transmission fluids should be changed sooner, rather than later (most manufacturers were/are suggesting changing fluid every 100,000km), but due to the high numbers of trans failures ocurring, it is now being suggested that trans fluid should be changed every 50,000km to be safe.

Remember: use ONLY CHEV APPROVED trans fluid (nothing else) and also change the trans oil filter at the same time. A complete transmission flush is also a good idea, if you intend on keeping the vehicle for a long time.

TIME FOR 60,000 MILE SERVICE. Can any service shop do this and does my 2005 odossey have to have any special parts or fluids ?

Any reputable shop can perform this mileage service,It will not need any thing special at this service as long as you have been performing the regular previous mileage services. When it comes to the 90,000 k service their are a few extra things I would have done example ( brake fluid flush ) ( trans fluid flush ) these I would have performed at the Honda dealer

My 2005 VW golf TDI with a 5 speed automatic transmission has a "minor" housing leak. does the car have some sort of indicator light before it fails? As we were told that only the dealership can check and...

Wish I was there to see the leak. The trans unit is sealed enough to keep the average person out of it. And the parts stores def. don't carry the special trans fluid required. A new trans will cost you 4-5 grand, so you really don't want to run it low on fluid. Transmissions, especially these, don't take well to being run low on fluid. I'd try the stealership on a chance tomorrow, otherwise some dealers are open for a half day on Saturday. I'd have her play the "this is a dire emergency" card being she is so far from home. I don't know the exact situation, but I think a room at the Hilton for 3 or 4 days is still way cheaper that a new trans.

Where is the dip stick for the trans fluid located? Automatic trans is shifting hard. 2005 Chevy Cavalier.

this model has a sealed transmission, there is no dipstick, the dealer has a special tool for checking the level at a plug just over the driver side axle.

Type of transmission oil for 2001 VW PASSAT

the trans fluid can only be serviced through a standpipe in the pan with car in the air and trans at an exact temp,<needs to be on a monitor computer> it also uses special fluid not any of the normal fluids. this fluid is suposed to be "lifetime" fluid that doesn't need servicing unless there is a leak or a trans failure.
