Hello. I can assist you. You will need a funnel. Then remove the transmission dip stick and insert the funnel into that tube. Slowly add new fluid, checking as you go to be sure that you do not overfill. When you are satisfied that you have added enough, then remove the funnel and replace the dipstick.

Through the dipstick tube. If you dont have a dipstick then your system is closed and you cannot add to it unless you flush the entire system.

My transmission fluid in my 06 Grand Prix gxp got to 220 is that bad


That's high, but not terribly so. Transmissions typically run about 180, but on my Silverado the trans temp gauge doesn't show red until 250. Smell the trans fluid, if it doesn't smell burned, it should be ok. If unsure, change the fluid. I don't recommend a power flush, just drain the pan, change filter, measure what was in the pan, add that amount of new fluid and of course, correct why it got that hot in the first place.

How to remove auto transmission on 2006 1500 silverado just rwd....


Disconnect battery > remove driveline> catch fluid with container
that may come out rear shaft or use a shaft fluid cap > remove torque converter bolts> remove housing bolts that connect trans to
engine >remove cross member use floor jack or similar to lower trans don't forget to remove dipstick assembly. Some trans have
a drain plug if so drain fluid prior to removal.install is reverse fill with factory GM trans fluid not aftermarket.after filling shift into all
gears twice check fluid in park or neutral if okay then check for leaks if no leaks lower truck and test drive check fluid once more
on level ground.
Good luck on your journey.

I have a 2008 Chevy Silverado with a 5.3 liter V8. When accelerating from a complete stop, the transmission jerks when shifting from 1st to 2nd and a you hear a grinding noise from 2nd to 3rd. Any...


If it is under warranty, THEY NEED TO FIX IT! Never trust lazy salesman or dealer personal. Any how, it sounds like your clutch or trans is slipping and might have "grinder teeth" in trans... Last suggestion,flush trans fluid and add Lucas additive to oil

99 silverado wont engage in to overdrive.


have you checked the trans fluid level? if level is good. check shift fuse in fuse panel. if fuse good, the trans screen may need replacement. the fluid could be bad and needs drained and replaced. if none of those you need a transmission repair.

Changing transmission fluid for 06 Kia Sedona


Transmissions these days need very little maintenance, our fluids are advanced formulas that hold up for an average of 100,000 miles, most vehicle manufactures recommend no maintenance for automatic transaxles these days.As for a transmission flush I don't recommend this because it's an expense that is not needed and possibly could loosen some contaminants setting them loose to possibly clog some of the very small passages in the transaxle requiring full transaxle service,which could include removal,dissassembly,etc of your trans.Now draining and replacing fluid is OK if that makes you feel a peace of mind but normally not needed,if you decide to do that,as far as quantity just note approx. how much fluid is drained and purchase similar amount in quarts and then refill (DO NOT OVERFILL)
start engine, let it warm up to operating temp,then check the transmission dipstick for the correct level,remember the vehicle needs to be on a level surface,hot idiling in park when you check the fluid level. Good luck !

1995 chevy silverado making a whinning noise


Sounds like it's starving for fluid. The noise you hear is probably a clogged filter. It it's been going on for a long period of time, you may have trans damage. I would recommend changing the fluid and filter and add some Lucas trans additive. I'm not much on additives but this stuff works. Hope this helps. Phil
