If it is catching on the cross member you have to undo it and jack the trans slightly from the tailshaft.. If you are having trouble getting it out between the heatshield and shift linkage you can carefully pry the metal bracket that holds the cable away from the trans to give you some room.
Hope this helps.

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.

Need to change the transmission filter in '99 chevy suburban 2wd.


If it has over 100,000 miles or so, don't do a complete fluid exchange. Drop the pan, change the filter, and add 2 bottles of Lucas trans. additive. No premises but it's better than a new trans. Worth a try.

Trans proublem


THE SHIFT SOLENOID NEEDS TO BE REPLACED EITHER INSIDE THE BOTTOM OF THE TRANSMISSION OR ON THE SIDE OF THE TRANS. I WOULD ALSO REPLACE THE TRANS FILTER WHILE THE PAN IS REMOVED. A TRANS FILTER KIT IS AVAILABLE AT MOST AUTO PARTS STORES WHICH INCLUDES A PAN GASKET. YOU WILL NEED ALMOST A GALLON(4 QTS.) OF TRANS FLUID TO FILL IT AFTER DROPPING THE PAN. HOPE THIS HELPS. BEST OF LUCK. THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED.
