Transmissions are drained by removing the pan itself. A new filter is to be installed upon draining. That is why there is no drain pan plug. The Chevy Powerglides were the last American made car with a drain plug in the 1965

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.

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.

Looking for the Oil Plug (Draining) for a GMC 2001 1500 Silverado


the pan under the motor is the oil pan. you can see the oil filter to the left of it (driverside). The plug is in the rear of it facing the back of the truck. On my 6.0l V8 the exuast pipe is rite behind it so when you loosen it have the drip pan ready to catch the oil as it will stream out fast at a wierd angle due to its location. The pan behind it is for the transmission.
