If this is a front wheel drive or two wheel drive car there IS only one pan it will be 2 to 3 inches deep and depending on the size of the vehicle about 10 to 14 inches square and will have 12 to 18 bolts around the perimeter

How to drain and fill transmission fluid in 2012 chevy malibu?


GET NEW GASKET AND FILTER FOR TRANNY ALONG WITH THE FLUID (BEFORE YOU BEGINE)
GET A LARGE FLAT DRAIN PAN.
PUT CAR UP ON 4 JACK STANDS.
place drain pan under tranny pan.
undo tranny pan screws - allow one corner to hang lower than the other corner (to allow fluid to drain) slowly remove them all.
Its messy! empty tranny pan into drain pan. set tranny pan to the side. undo the filter clamp, carefully remove the filter - set into the drain pan, remove the gasket around the tranny body/tranny pan.
Clean tranny block surface with clean cloth. install new filter, install clamp tightly. Clean tranny pan, place gasket onto pan and then reinstall tranny pan. (this only change the fluid in the tranny body and pan) If you wan the fluid out of the torque convertor you have pull the pan under the torque convertor and turn the convertor so you can get at the drain plug. Allow fluid to drain into drain pan. Reinstall drain plug and pan. (you will need a lot of fluid) Check manual for qty. Place car back on to ground/floor. Refill tranny through filler tube. Do not start the engine until oil is at full mark, and when you do start it do not all it to run for than 4 minutes - stop and add more fluid and check full mark again (repeat until no longer sinks below full mark. gently test drive around you block -- come back and check level while engine running. Top up if needed.
Siphon out excess above full mark. Test drive around 3 block,
come back check full mark. Because the torque convertor was emptied it can take a while to get all the air out it.

How do I, automatic trans filter and fluid replacement.


i would not reccomend changing transmission fluid yourself. do not do it!!!

to change transmission fluid and filter, you have to take the tranny pan off the bottom of the tranny and it will make a mess of fluid. then you have to carefully remove the old tranny pan gasket, which is best done with a special machine. if you fail to remove all of the gasaket, or damage the lip of the pan while removing the gasket, then the new tranny seal will leak, and the tranny will not hold fluid. tranny fluid and filter needs to be done in a professional shop where they have the correct equiptment.

I'm leaking transmission fluid, maybe the gasket is broken I ran over a curve. So I may need to change the gasket and filter while I am at it. So how do you change the transmission filter on a 2002 Buick...


first thing to do is get the car in the air, jack the front up, and place jack stands under it(safety first PLEASE). now slide under and inspect the bottom of the tranny. make sure there are no holes. if you went over the curb, you could have bent the pan, scraped a hole, or tore a line.its not much harder to remove, and access is there. your pan still unbolts the old fashion way. when you drop the pan, you will be looking at the filter. it should have either a bolt or screw holding it in place. while you have the pan down, cleaning it, look for any cracks or damaged outer lip. hope this helps you

I have a late shifting on my tranny no service engine light on plz help


HI. Most late shifting can be the cause of inadequate transmission fluid level. I would inspect the level of the transmission fluid, asap. If it is lower than the specifications, re-fill to specs, asap. Another cause will be faulty shift solenoids. There are two in the valve body structure. You will need to drain the transmission , and remove the pan to access the wiring and solenoids, for testing. A basic resistance test can be administered to confirm solenoid failure, in this case.

A more sever case will be a failed gear pack. If you remove the pan, after the initial draining, and there are metal fragments on the pan, this will indicate that the gears are damaged. This will require you to have the transmission re-built.

NOTE_ A more uncommon issue will be a defective PCM
