How do I fix a leaking transmission pan gasket on a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo and how much fluid will I need to put back in?

First thing is to get a new filter and pan gasket and a tube of black RTV sealer. Always change the filter wile the pan is down, it's a good idea to. Block and jack the vehicle and rest it on stands so you've room to work and for safety. You don't want it dropping off a jack on you while you're laying under it. Place a large enough drain pan under the trans to catch the draining fluid and pull the drain plug if it has one. If no drain plug, take all the pan bolts out except for the corner ones, and back them out to near the end of their length and wit a screwdriver, break the gasket seal loose and let the corner bolts catch the pan from falling. Now, push the pan up by hand and remove two of the same side corner bolts and allow the pan down from the one side slowly over the catch pan to let the fluid go into the catch pan from the loose side. Let it drain off for a moment till it stops, push the pan back up and remove the other 2 corner bolts and lower the pan and dump the remainder of fluid into the drain pan. Now you can change the filter and clean everything up. Clean and wipe the gasket surfaces on the trans and pan. Place a few dabs of the black RTV on the pan gasket surface of the pan and place the gasket on the pan. That will hold the gasket in place while you put it back up. Stick couple of corner blots in thru the pan and gasket to help you stick it in place and then place the rest of the pan bolts. Snug them all up then torque them to specs and that part is done. Jack and remove the stands, put the vehicle back on it's tires and then the fluid . ONLY replace the same amount you drained out. You can even strain the fluid in the drain pan and put it back in or measure the amount and replace it with that amount. NOW your done. Warm the vehicle up, and check the fluid level in trans with the dipstick to check for proper level while the engine is running and on flat ground.

How do i remove transmission pan 2000 chevrolet suburban LT

Using a 13 mm socket, remove all but one bolt on the transmission pan. fluid will begin leaking out all around the pan. Slowly remove the last bolt while allowing the pan to tilt and drain into your catch pan. Now, hold the pan up to the transmission and remove the last bolt. Remove the pan. The filter simply pops out of the seal that is holding onto the tube.

How do you drain the oil from the auto box on a 3.3 voyager,there doesnt seem to be a visable drain plug?

You take off the bottom pan to drain it. Loosen the bolts all around and begin loosening more at one end, so pan begins lowering from one end, and you have a good large, deep catch pan to catch the fluid. Let it drain that way till all drained, then remove the pan and empty its contents into your catch pan. Expect 6-8 quarts to drain, I believe.

How to do a oil change

Pull the drain plug, change the oil filter, replace the drain plug. Add oil until the dipstick reads full. Start the engine and make sure the oil light goes out. Check for leaks around the oil filter with the car running. Recheck the oil level, add as necessary. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

I found a round magnet in my transmission pan i need to know where it came from and how to replace it

This round magnet is supposed to stay in the bottom of the Transmission pan to catch any metal flakes, shavings that may exists. This magnet should be cleaned, and replaced into the original spot in the transmission pan where you found it.

Tranny pan

If you are trying to remove it, you have to use an oil change pan to catch the trans fluid. loosen all the bolts (15 of them if I remember) and then start from one end only and take them out. This will cause the fluid to flow into the pan, just make sure the catch basin is large enough. Good Luck.
