About 3 1/2 litres is the average amount. Pour slowly 2 - 3 litres and check trans dipstick in Park with engine running..

Transmission slipping in 95 blazer


You could try a transm. drain and refill and replace the fluid filter while doing so. When you drop the transmission pan (after draining), check for how much metal shavings are in the pan. There should be a magnet on the pan to collect shavings. If it doesn't look like too much, you could proceed with the filter change, then replace gasket for pan and put pan back on, and refill transm. and try it. Sometimes a fluid and filter helps, sometimes not if damage is too severe.

Need to replace transmission pan gasket.


1) Drain the fluid.2) Remove all oil pan screws around the exterior.3) Pull down oil pan.4) Remove old gasket.5) Clean both mating surfaces.
6) Take the opportunity to replace any gearbox oil filter within.
7) Refit new gasket with silicone sealant on both sides (I prefer 'Three Bond')
8) Refit screws, tightening several times all the way around until snug.
9) Refill with fresh oil.

Remove transmission cover and clear filter


You don't clean the filter, you replace it. You need to drop transmission pan to drain fluid, then filter is attached to transmission with a couple of screws. Any good parts store you can buy trans filter & gasket & fluid.

Something leaking up front on left side.oil is ok,powersteering is ok,brakefluid is ok.


It could be your transmission fluid leaking, Check to see what color it is, if it's a bright red than its that. If you find out that it is your transmission fluid, i would not recommend to drive your car. You may have busted the fluid pan or put a hole in it, which means you may have to go buy a new pan, gasket for the pan, maybe a new filter, and some transmission fluid. 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.

How do you check/add transmission fluid to a 2004 pontiac grand am? what is the fluid type and capacity after the filter is changed? 2004 grand am v6 automatic


Hello! To check the fluid level, the first thing you want to do is get the fluid to operating temperature, by driving it for a bit and letting it shift through all gears. Once you've done that you need to make sure you park the car on a very level surface. Remove the front passenger wheel and the splash guard. From there reference the picture below to give you an idea where the fluid check plug is located - there is no dipstick on this transmission (4T45e). You will also see the fill plug location.

If you do a pan drop and filter replacement only, the fill capacity is 6.9 quarts. You will want to use Dexron III type transmission fluid.

FYI - here are the torque specs for the pan bolts is 106 in/lbs and the check/fill plugs are both 124 in/lbs.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Transmission fluid change


More than likely, like most automatic transmissions, yours does not have an oil plug. You need to drop the transmission oil pan to drain the old oil... You need to buy a transmission filter/pan gasket kit. The filter is located on the bottom of the tranny. You will see it when you remove the pan. Replace the filter, thoroughly remove any traces of old gasket material, clean the mating surfaces, and reinstall the pan with the new gasket. Torque the pan bolts to the manufacturers spec (you should be able to get this where you buy the filter/gasket kit). Refill the transmission through the dipstick (Capacity for the Voyager is 4 quarts, make sure to use ATF Plus (Type 7176) for your particular tranny, NOT Dexron, Mercon, or generic automatic transmission fluid, Chrysler transmissions do not like any other kind and tend to fail quite quickly with the wrong fluid). Fill to the full cold level. Start the engine, move the shifter through all gear ranges, and put it back in park. Leave the engine running and refill to cold full. Drive the car for 5-10 minutes and, with the engine still running and the car in park, fill to Hot full. You should be ready to go!
