Question about Chevrolet 1500

1 Answer

I know you need to drain/refill and probably change the filter on a typical automatic trans. How do you do this on a 1990 K1500 with the automatic? What is the service interval?

How to change a transmission screen on a 05' ford


The filter is not replaced unless an overhaul of the trans-axle is needed, It involves the removal of the trans-axle and partial disassembly to accomplish the filter replacement. That is only if trans failure is suspected, and diagnosis requires removal and inspection of the filter. The filter removal and replacement is procedure 42 out of 72 in the disassembly manual and 12 different Ford specific SST's (Special Service Tools) are needed. I did however, include the procedure for the normal drain and fill service performed at the dealer.
I hope this info helps!

Good day.how many liters will i consume if I'll going to change the automatic transmission fluid of my toyota 2c engine.


V6 or 4 cylinder engine?

A trans drain and refill is about the same as an engine oil change.

Find the trans. Under the trans is an oil pan, much like the one on the engine. There should be a drain plug on the bottom of the trans pan.

Depending on the model of trans it can hold say 6-8 quarts of fluid. Only about 2.6 will drain out the pan as the rest is held in the torque converter.

The easiest approach is to measure how much fluid drained out and refill with the same amount.

The trains has a dipstick. Check fluid when hot, engine running after moving the shifter from Park to Low and return. The dipstick will have a "Hot" and "Cold" mark, use the hot mark if the fluid is hot. The stick will also have the type of fluid used, typically Dexron III or now called "ATF" fluid. Read the container to make sure it is a substitute for Dexron III.

As only 1/3 to 1/2 of the total fluid amount drains out of the pan at one time you will need to do a few drain and fills over time to get most of the old fluid out.

Wheres the transmission fluid plug located


I'm assuming this is an automatic transmission for which there will be no drain plug. If you're wishing to drain and refill the trans. you need to remove the trans oil pan and replace the filter and gasket(kit is about $20-30) and then get a funnel and refill through the trans dipstick tube. Start with 2 quarts, run and shift through all the gears and then check your lavel and fill as necesary by half quarts at a time.

no drain plug, no car or truck has had a drain plug for decades, reason? they want the filter changed with the fluid, so they make you pull the trans pan to drain the fluid, one very messy job.
