2001 hd 8.1 with allison. Pulled my boat up a big hill, then the tranny warmed up just below the red line, pulled over and looked under, and it was leaking. Just dripping. Put a quart of fluid in it and drove it back home. Is there an overflow? Or do I have a problem?? Looks good now????

There is no overflow on the Allison Trans, something happened when the trans got over heated, it is a good idea now to also get a trans flush as once you heat it up that bad it starts to break down the fluid.

Clanking noise coming from Allison Transmission on a 2001 Chrevrolet Silverado 8.1 Liter engine


this does sound like theres a loose line tapping the engine/frame,during warm up the engine idles faster which could make it vibrate faster causing the the clanking or tapping noise,if this has started after trans fluid change,then check the lines running from the trani to radiator sometimes the service person might bang into something causing plastic clips that hold the lines to break,try getting under it and have someone start the truck and listen to see where it's coming from also hold the lines & see if the noise stops,the service guy could have unbolted something & never put the bolt back causing the clank ex.line may have a clip holding it thats bolted to the trani pan ?good luck

2001 chevy 2500 hd 4x2 allison trans seems to loose pressure after coming to a stop, have to rev engine for a few seconds before it pulls again, whats up with that? 88800 miles


I would start
by changing both trans filters and fluid, makesure you put dex VI in trans then if still having problems take to someone with a Tech 2 scanner and have them reset the trans adapts and try that, what it does is resets trans to factory (new) mode and then as you drive the truck it will adjust to your driving habits and shift points, but loosing pressure makes me think one of your filters is partially plugged...there is a spin on cartridge and the internal one in pan, change em both..good luck
