Engine, with filter..........6.0 quarts[1]
Cooling System, Initial Fill..........17.0 quarts
AMSOIL Antifreeze and Engine Coolant
Cooling System, W/ Rear Heat Initial Fill..........19.0 quarts

Dexron VI is the way to go. As for a filter the choice is yours..Hope this helps Tim

Want to change transmission fluid and filter

I took mine to a shop for a flush and filter change. Costed me about $240 all said and done give or take. the '03 (and other) denali's have a big transmission reserve and i believe they take approximately 16 quarts of fluid in the system. the trans fluid is around 7 a quart i believe, and I recommend a flush to replace all the fluid with new fluid before changing the filter so that when you change the filter out, you are running new fluid through it. I don't know how to flush the system without their special tool that straight swaps the fluid as the ****** is running, so that will have to be done by a shop anyways. As for the filter swap, I believe the filter is about $29 and you'll need approx 7-8 quarts of fluid to replace when you drop the transmission pan.

All in all, in fluid alone you will be spending approximately $175. $29 for a filter. let the shop make a few bucks and have it done by pros. I know they get discount on the fluids, but I figure I still spent $35 more than doing it myself for an hour or two of work. Not a horrific deal to be honest.

Slightly overfilling the transmission will not damage it. Driving it with almost no fluid in it will. Chances are, the bands in the tranny are burnt, and debris has also clogged the filter screen. It is probably worth trying to have the transmission flushed (traditional flush, NOT reverse power flushed) and the filter screen replaced. This may enable you to get a few more miles out of it. Also, there is a product called Trans-X that might help.

How do you change the transmission fluid in a 2004 GMC Yukon Denali?

At the bottom of your transmission there is a large square/rectangular pan (depends which trans you have). Have a large drain pan to catch 5 to 9 liters/quarts of transmission fluid. Undo all of the retainer bolts and carefully lower the pan (this can get messy for the unexperienced) .
In some cases the rear transmission mount may need to be undone and the rear of the trans lifted to allow clearance for the pan to be slid past the crossmember.
Replace the trans filter too!
