SOURCE: when do i change the transmission fluid 2005 monte carlo?

Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.

I have a 96 Monte Carlo that runs and shifts great when motor is cool. When warm, it my problemstarts shifting hard and trans statrs acting stupid. What is my prob?


Id say ur tranny is starting to go bad. Or it could be a modulator, or ur tranny seal needs replaced. The filter inside could of gotten lose. Iwould just take it to ur local tranny shop dont say ur having issues and get a fluid and a screen change should be like $79.00 and if ur having a bad tranny they will say u have metal or tell u there are issues besides the check up needed. I had a trans am and when it got hot it would slip and when i turned coners its was slipping bad. It turned out being the tranny screen had slipped lose. Guess i was jumping bumps to hard. idk but good luck

I buying 1999 monte carlo and the older man and the man said it wont move in drive or over drive but gear 2 and i went over to test drive in and he put tran fluid and i shift from 2 to drive and it work...


That is correct.....the automatic transmission works on fluid pressure to change gears, and if there i no or little fulid, then this will create problems in shifting........

If it works great, but be careful to wonder why the fluid had to be topped up...if it was low, it either leaked out, so there would be eviddence of dripping on the concrete/driveway...or it is being burnt, through a vaccum leeak......both of which can be expensive.....

I would suggest a thoruogh check performed by a mechanic that you trust !!

1998 Chevrolet Cavalier, automatic transmission. Engine light comes on and then when car shifts gears, it shifts very rough. Took it to a mechanic and it wasn't reading any codes. Had car serviced and...


A vacuum leak somewhere, or a tranny modulator, or both. Mechanic can do a vacuum test, or you can buy the vacuum meter and do it yourself. transmissin modulator (if your car uses one, that is) is located on the outside of the tranny and looks like a frisbee-shaped disk about the size of the base of a water glass, made of aluminum, and has a vacuum hose attached. buy at a parts store. (I'm betting on a vacuum leak, though)

My ransmission on my 2004 chevy monte carlo shifts hard


Hook that diagnostic computer to the car. If the cod reads P1810 then u need a Pressure Control Solenoid. Your check engine light will not come on with this code. The mechanic will have to drop the transmission to install the solenoid. Have a 2000 pontiac bonneville that had the same problem and ever since I did the solenoid change I have had no other problems.
