Question about Cars & Trucks
I bought the RV well used. Runs great, but don't know what kind of transmission fluid to use.
Any garage or mechanic would tell you this as they have manuals to show them this information.

Testimonial: "Thank you for your help. I ordered a used ORIGINAL manual from faxon. usapartssupply.com also had a 1984 (NEW) shop manual available, but for $150.00."
SOURCE: What kind of fluid do
If the vehicle has an Automatic Transmission: Dextron II
If the vehicle has a Manual Trans, its complicated.
Depending on Trans model:
The 77mm 5-speed and 89mm 4-speed overdrive use Dextron II ATF.
The 117mm 4-speed uses API GL5 SAE 80W90 gear lubricant.
GM recommends Synchromesh Trans Fluid (1052931) in both the 85mm 4-speed and 5-speed.
Hope this helps!

there are two transmission cooling lines that go to the radiator. If you have a six cylinder it is possible that one of the lines has a hole that is spraying on to the exhaust. this would account for no leaks on the ground. When you start the car it will start to spray right away. These are metal and rubber hose lines, so if and when you find a leak it can be cut out and replaced with hose and clamps or you can get the original hose and replace all of it. Not hard to o . Let me know. Randy

Check the fluid level. The first thing to check if you suspect that the transmission is acting up is the automatic transmission fluid (ATF) level in the transmission itself. The dipstick on the TH400 can be found inside the engine bay, on the passenger side toward the firewall (opposite the radiator). Pull the handle attached to the dipstick, which will remove it from the dipstick tube. Clean any fluid off and put it back into place, making sure that it seats all the way. Then remove it again and look at the tip of the stick. There are level indicators there, which will tell you if the transmission is low on ATF.
Check the linkages. The linkages that are connected to the shift lever can get out of alignment at times, causing sloppy or difficult shifter response. Look for abnormalities such as bent or broken parts, loose attachment points, or blockages that would prevent smooth shifting.
Change the filter. Unbolt all 13 transmission pan bolts (on the bottom of the TH400) and remove the pan. The filter is found in this area of the transmission. Filter kits, which include the filter and a new pan gasket, can be found at any auto parts store. Replace the filter and fill the transmission with new ATF (the TH400 requires six quarts). Do not put the bolts back on too tightly, as the gasket can become damaged. Six to 8 foot-pounds should be plenty. If no torque-wrench is available, just put them on as tight as you can by hand, and then turn them 1/2 revolution.
Inspect the cooler lines. The number-one killer of automatic transmissions is heat. If the cooler lines that come from the radiator are damaged or leaking, it might be necessary to replace them. These items can also be found at the local parts store.
