Are you asking if a business named "Valvoline Instant Oil Change" can change the fluid in your transmission ? If that is the question, I would say, yes they can.

An automatic trnsmission uses ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) -- any garage which does oil changes will have ATF and would know what to do with it.

2005 LeSabre: Is it a wild coincidence the speedometer started acting up immediately after I left the Valvoline shop, or could this have anything to do with the worker resetting the dash buttons?


Go to the Buick dealer, talk to the service manager, tell them your kid did it..(because they will not help you if they know you went somewhere else to get work they do).. and ask them how to fix it.....then go back to the Valvoline place with your new found info...

Manual how to replace transmision oil


The easiest way to do it would be loosen the transmission oil pan bolts on one side of the pan and work your way around each side of the pan working from one corner. As you work your way around fluid will start to leak from the initial corner. Let the fluid leak out until it is down to the level of the pan. Hold the pan up and finish removing the remaining bolts and then dump remaining fluid still in the pan. Change the fluid filter while you have the pan off and clean the pan and gasket surface and re-install the pan using a new gasket. Then fill with clean fluid and you are good to go.

I have an 06 impala i havent change the transmision oil and is black. i know i have to that. but if i change that wil it run like new? is it worth takin it to dealer and pay 500 dollars? or do i need a new...


You can change it and see what happens if the fluid is black it is considered burnt . Here the test is it slipping? Then it will need to be rebuilt. If there is no slippage then just go ahead a replace the fluid and the filter

My transmision fluid is black and two transmision mechanics say if you change transmision fluid the car wont run no more is this true sombody please help me they are saying im going to need a new...


The mechanics lied to you. Changing the transmission fluid and screen will not cause any car not to run. Just as you need to periodically change the oil, the same holds true for transmission fluid. Though the fluid is black, yoou state that you have no slippage or nothing out of the ordinary. If that is the case, then you do not need a new transmission. Just have the fluid and screen replaced and all will be fine. Make sure to pick up a transmission pan gasket while you get the necessary fluid and screen. Again, changing the fluid will not cause any car to not run. It is safe to perform the fluid change.

Wat type of oil goes in.golf gti automatic


The problem here is did he put the right transmission fluid in when he changed it? Changing the trans oil is no problem but if he put the wrong oil in you are going to have major problems because you are damaging your transmission everytime you use it. You will need to check the operator handbook in your glove compartment for the correct type of oil or take the vehicle to a transmission shop where they can change the oil and filter.

TRANSMISION OIL TYPE!


You need to use Hyundai Diamond ATF SP-II M or any fluid which lists compatible. I recommend Hyundai brand fluid but aftermarket is ok. The listing would be on the bottle. Do no use Dextron / Mercon fluids.

please rate my anwers.

I had the same problem, but it can be changed. I had to go to a Valvoline that had a special machince to change it out. Saved a lot of money. Dealership cost $199.99 / Valvoline cost $115.99 (before tax). Just call around some place has a michine that can do it.
