The temperature on which you will be using it and the type of load you put it under plays more of a role in the type of fluid than any owners manual will ever give you. Let fluid drain out rear for a while, then hold your hand on the pan to position it back flush with the trans. Please only post in this section if you have directions on how to do a modification, complete a task, or steps to take to resolve a problem. I'm assuming just enough to get the weight off the crossmember. However, many times, we end up neglecting the transmission or paying too much because we do not know how to do it ourselves.
And now I have a happy Chevy. Definite shame on him for being dumb enough to ignore that fact. But I'm broke enough not to pay someone else to do it. If the air conditioning system in your vehicle needs refrigerant, be sure the proper refrigerant is used. When I installed the new filter, I just pushed it up into where it goes and somehow got it to stay, assuming the new filter came with a seal on it, which it didn't. I would agree with the pump gasket or more likely the main seal possibly being bad but I would first get the under side really really clean then put some U. No real way to not spill.
It really wasn't a good time when I realized that the seal was loose and had to repeat the process over again. I'm quite sure this transmission fluid has never been replaced, so i don't know how long it had been like this. But I have the same crossmember on mine. I would like to complete the 4 run grand slam. The best way I have found is to remove the rear 4-6 bolts first.
So, I am forced to do it myself. Fuel pump sends pressure to injectors. The fluid is so clean that I can't even see it on the dipstick. So, I'd be ramped and jacked all at once. I'll update if it was the right filter when I change the fluid tomorrow. This bolt was so long, I was afraid to jack the back of the tranny to clear the xmember.
It's important that you mention the truck be level and not on ramps. I assumed when I had bubbles in the fluid that I had overfilled the fluid, but 4 quarts went out, and 4 went in, so it's definitely the lack of an installed seal causing the airation. Wouldn't want to bend something in the front. I want to change my fluid and filter as well. And thanks for the info. All posts in here are put up for all to read and gain information on how to do something to their silverado or sierra. Properly discard the old filter.
Time to drop the pan again tomorrow and rectify the situation. Not sure how much play I have when raising the transmission. Interestingly enough when I dropped the pan, the old filter and seal were in the pan and not installed. Clean off magnet in the pan, clean off gasket mating surfaces on pan and trans. The filter went in tight as well. It must have not been pushed in far enough the first time, so it fell out.
If you have no current concerns and the fluid is in good condition with no burnt odors then now would be the time. Replace the clips or bolts where necessary. But boy, I can't tell you how many times I thought ill of the engineers that designed the parts placement. A leaking transmission pan gasket doesn't get worse or better when the vehicle is running. Checked for fuel and spark.
Why not flush the system and get it all out. I read somewhere that you have to loosen the entire crossmember and place a jack somewhere under the transmission to get it off. I have uploaded a video showing the leak, please check it out and let me know some troubleshooting ideas. I tried working it in, but all I got was a warped seal with the rubber coming off. If I use a jack on the back of the tranny, it seems a bit dangerous given the back is rounded. Seems I used 13mm,15mm and 17mm sizes for the entire process.
