FIRST OF ALL ENGINE MUST BE WARM.NOT COLD OR HOT TO GET BURN. MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A OIL FILTER WRENCH.YOU ARE TURNING OIL FILTER COUNTER CLOCKWISE.ADVANCE AUTO SELL THE OIL FILTER SOCKET.THAT GOES WITH A RATCHETT WRENCH AND EXTENSION.YOU CAN US EXTRA LARGE CHANNEL LOCK PLIER.FILTER SHOULD COME OFF.

Useing oil but does't leak or smoke


Always low? even if you have an oil change? If it's low at oil change, the mechanics don't say anything? Do you do it yourself? Do you change the filter yourself? The filter "absorbs" a half quart or so, if that is your perceived always low. Perhaps you have the wrong dipstick for measuring oil level? Otherwise, if you have oil in your Cooling fluid you have a head gasket problem between oil channels and cooling fluid. Greater failure may be eminent.

Can you drain torque converter when changing transmission fluid on a 2004 pontiac vibe


Basicly just remove the bolts in the transmission oil pan, make sure you have a drain pan under it and leave a couple bolts in, loosen the remining bolts and let the oil drain then loosen and remove them slowly as oil will be draining out while you are doing it.

Change the filter and after cleaning the pan install a new gasket and put it back on. Do not tighten the bolts too tight because it will distort the gasket and it will leak.

Pour about 5 quarts of transmission fluid in the trannsmission and start it up, look for leaks, and finish filling it to the cold line on the dip stick. If there are no leaks run until its warmed up and make sure the fluid level is at the full hot line on the stick.

There is really no way to drain the converter.

2004 Pontiac Vibe has 77,000 miles. Transmission fluid appears brownish. Do you recommend a flush? Should pan be dropped and filter be replaced? Can a flush cause damage to the transmission?


I recomend servicing the transmision every 50,000 miles. ie: drop pan replace filter and gasket, clean the sump. A flush also gets more of the fluid changed but I would do that in conjunction with a normal service.
