Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
1st you must remove the belly pan from the transmission, there is no drain plug on the stock pan, unbolt the pan and carefully lower the rear of the pan with a large drain bucket under the pan, this is VERY MESSY, finally remove the pan. The filter is on the bottom of the valve body inside the pan install new and seal, replace pan gasket after all the fluid has drained out, this takes time so be patient, if fluid gets on the new gasket before you bolt the pan back up you will likely have a leak and have to do the whole thing over, make sure and clean all surfaces the gasket touches, do not use RTV Silicone sealer! Now reinstall the pan bolts and torque to 12-14 ft/lbs in a crisS cross pattern. Refill with fluid (you will need about 4 quarts total, use GM spec ATF it is called DEXRON VI. (Hint, the amount that comes out is pretty close to what you'll need to put back in.) Don't overfill! As soon as it stays on the stick as you are filling, start the engine, shift from "D" to "R" a few times check again. When it is holding to the bottom of the hot range as it approaches operating temperature, take it for a spin. Minimum throttle and let it shift through all ranges. Check fluid while it is hot again and top off as necessary. Again, do not overfill you can damage the transmission if you do..
