How to change the transmission gasket on a 1988 chevy Silverado


Changing the transmission gasket on any car..
You need to drain the transmission fluid - if you get under the car you will see the transmission pan drain plug.

Drain the transmission fluid and then remove the small bolts that hold the fluid pan to the transmission body. You may need a blunt screw driver to break the seal/lever the pan off. Be careful when levering as you don't want to damage the mating surface of the fluid pan.

With the fluid pan removed use a blunt screwdriver to scrape off the old gasket from the pan and the transmission body. Apply a thin smear of sealant to the pan and place the new gasket onto it - line up the holes in the gasket with the bolt holes in the pan.

Lift the pan up against the transmission body and put the bolts in finger tight to hold it into place, then tighten with a socket to pull the pan tight against the transmission body.

To refill the transmission with fresh fluid (don't use the old fluid) have a look on the side of the transmission itself. There will be a filler plug that needs to be unscrewed. Alternatively, you can rig up a funnel/tube and fill the transmission via the transmission dipstick tube. This method takes longer but it tends not to be as messy as filling the transmission via the filler plug.

However, before you start any work on the transmission gasket check that it is actually that gasket at fault. Fluid above/in front the transmission pan can point towards a leaking torque converter.

Where is shift solenoid on a 2007 dodge ram 1500


I'm not positive on the 2007 specifically, but in most cases the shift solenoid is located inside the transmission fluid pan, above the filter. Drain the fluid/drop the pan, remove the transmission filter, and you SHOULD see the solenoid just above the front edge of the opening...

Again I'm not positive on the 07, this is just where they are located on most of the trucks I have encountered. On that note, before you open it up make sure you have a new filter & gasket and enough new fluid to fill the pan after servicing (normally 4-5 quarts will do it) keep in mind a service fill is considerably less fluid than the total fluid capacity of your transmission... good luck !

How do u check the tranny fluid on the 05 645 bmw and where?


Can't find it huh? :) Since BMW does not have a dipstick it is a common question to ask how the transmission fluid is checked. The fluid level is checked (and fluid added) via a fill plug on the transmission fluid pan or just above the pan on the transmission body. Try watching this YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VUgTKWRffKM I hope this helps.

How to change transmission oil in 2000 Pontiac grand am


You have two choices, you can either take it to a shop and have it power flushed, recommended because this gets rid of all the fluid and replaces it with new fluid. The second is to drop the transmission pan, most cars don't have a drain plug for transmission fluid, so you would need to take out all the bolts holding the transmission pan out slowly letting the fluid drain as you bring the pan down. After you have the pan off I would go ahead and change the transmission filter, it is just above the pan inside the transmission. Place the pan back onto the transmission and fill with fluid, about 6-8 quarts.

I have fluid leaking from the bottom of the transmission. Could it be a seal, gasket or do I have to replace the transmission?


What vehicle?
What leaks?

There is no reason to replace anything but the
pan gasket or side case drive axle seals, if you have a front
wheel drive transaxle

You have to get under these vehicles & provide
some info.

They should call this site the Guessing Game Place

Adding transmission fluid


Found this on wiki answers

There is no dipstick on the Malibu transmission. To correctly check fluid level, you must locate the filler cap and the drain plug on the transmission. The filler cap is a red cap located on the drivers side of the transmission between the air filter box and exhaust crossover pipe, almost under the crossover pipe. The drain plug is located on the passengers side of the transmission, just behind where the axle connects to the transmission. It has an 11mm head and can be seen if you lay in front of the passengers front tire, look about 3 inches above the transmission pan. Once you have located these, warm the transmission to normal operating temperature, and with the car running, transmission in park, and the car sitting level, slowley remove the drain plug, have a drain pan under the plug in case any fluid comes out. There should be very little fluid coming out, if there is none coming out re-install the plug, remove the filler cap and put 1/2 quart of fluid in, now run the transmission thru all the gears and back to park. Put the drain pan under the plug and remove the plug, if it is overfull, let it drain until it stops, if it still doesn't have fluid coming out, add 1/2 quart at a time until it does, following the above procedure. Make sure you let any excess fluid drain out and re-install the plug. As noted above, make sure the car is running while checking the fluid. I know it seems complicated but it isn't as bad as it sounds. This same procedure applies to all Chevy Malibus from about 1997 until 2004 if I'm not mistaken.
