You probably left the old trans filter seal in the bore. When that happens, the filter isn't sealed properly Very common mistake for DIYers. To remove it, use the female end of a 3/8" extension bar. Insert it and pry it out. The round edges won't damage the bore.

If you have no overdrive at all, and virtually no third, then it's time for an overhaul. The 3-4 clutches have failed, a common problem in this trans since 1981. Yes, 1981. Your trans is a 4L60-E that is computer controlled. In 1981 it was called a THM700-R4, and was hydraulically controlled. The input clutch drum is basically the same as it was in 1981, and the 3-4 clutches are prone to failure, usually around 130,000 to 150,000 kms (75,000 to 90,000 miles).

You remove the transmission pan and then remove the old filter. Make sure you remove the old seal out of the valve body and install new filter with new seal and re-install pan. Fill with fluid and you are done.

It sounds like the transmission front pump seal, if thats the case the trans. has to be pulled out to replace the seal.It will not be a cheap fix at a shop good guess around 200-500$ est.

Im leaking transmission fluid and i dont think i have coverage to repair it


Generally the trans pan is first to leak on any transmission. If the perimeter of the pan espeacially the mounting bolts are wet with red fluid change the filter and gasket. Add transmission fluid as recommended in the owners manual also
If the leak is between the engine and the trans the front pump seal or pump seals need replacement.
If leaking at the axle shafts the axle seals need replacing

rec check fluid first. If trans fluid hasn't been changed in last 30,000 miles change fluid, filter and pan gasket. At that time inspect for foreign materials in bottom of pan or on magnet if you have one. If truck has over 100K and fluid was never changed you may have more problems if changing the fluid.

Does my chevy silverado 2004 v8 2wd ls transmission have a filter and drain plug


No drain plug, the filter is inside trans. Remove trans oil pan (it will be full of tran fluid so loosen bolts on one end and work your way to other end) May have to take bolts out of a cross member and slid it back to get to all the pan bolts. The filter is flat and you'll see it once the pan is dropped. Pull straight down to remove. Clean out sludge and old fluid from pan and scrape old gasket off.
Push new filter into place. Its a good idea to use gasket sealer to help keep it from leaking and to help hold gasket in place so bolt holes stay lined up while bolting up pan. Tighten all bolts evenly. Then refill tran with the fluid your service manual list. Operate your truck in all gears (shifting back and forth) and recheck trans fluid level. Its not a hard job to change filter and fluid. If you can change your own motor oil and have a rachet and sockets then you couldnt have any problems. Just get your filter and trans fluid from your local auto parts store like Autozone or Advance Auto Parts.

I need instructions on how to change the transmission fluid & filter on a 1995 Olds Cutlass Supreme. I've done just about everything working on cars (pre '90's) except automatic transmissions.


for starters, if trans has not been regularly serviced , many problems will occur if vehicle has lots of miles on it and a service job is done. the new fluid has new detergents and better viscosity and causes metal / clutch particles to break free inside trans and stop filter up or stick valves in valve body. ( judgment call on owners part) , if lots miles and never serviced i would leave alone and just keep fluid topped off .
to service the transmission, first go to parts house and tell them the yr,model,make of vehicle. put vehicle on lift or jacks and there will be a large flat pan on the trans., pull all the ten mm bolts out , one left last to slowly let pan finish draining slowwly. make sure the vehicle hasnt been started or driven for a very short time as the fluid would then be hot and burn you. once the pan is off the trans. , there will be a large filter , it has a large rubber/steel groumet/seal that it pushes into. A flat head screwdriver can be put next to the neck of the filter and use the transmission case as a pry point to make the filter pop out of the filter seal. once this is done , the old seal for the filter needs to be removed. use the flat head screwdriver again and it will pop out of the hole its it, just dont get to ruff with it. put the tip into the seal neck and use the shaft of the screwdriver as leverage against the hole the fitler pushes into. next put a little lube of any kind on new seal on filter and with seal on filter push the filter into the hole until seated fully. next clean pan/and magnet inside pan thouroughly , wipe off the pan rail of trans case very well , leaving oil there will let pan gasket tear easy. causing leak. let oil drip awile before trying to put pan gasket and pan back on . i use break cleaner at auto parts alot to do all the cleaning. make shure bolt holes on pan are not domed from pan bolts over tightened previously. a ball pean hammers smaller end can be put ontop of bolt hole using another hammer to flatten raised bolt hole so that pan rail where gasket fits is flat. put 10mm bolt back using torque wrench at 110-140 inch pounds or till tight with ratchet and socket. dont overtighten , watch gasket between pan and trans case as you tighten bolts. if over tightening bolts, the gasket will squish out and cause a leak. let car down and put 4 quarts fluid it (dexron 3 fluid is ok) . after the 4 , start engine and with foot on brake , shift rev. to fwd a couple times and reckeck fluid till full.
