Just wondering about overall longevity. We do every 30K or every fall, which ever comes first. Your following the manual is correct. Please tell me my transmission isn't slipping! I understand draining the 6 qts or so by dropping the pan leaves some old fluid in there. Chevy mechanic went on to tell me to not do any extra preventative maintenance. The newer trucks are made to last a long time.
Replacement brand parts are the most affordable solution for your replacement needs! There have been an increasing number of instances surfacing recently regarding transmission failures shortly after an evacuation service, without filter removal. And your partially correct on the Allison filters. That set-up provided a brawny, segment-leading 365 horsepower and 660 lb. If your fluid smells and looks fresh, the good news is that there is probably nothing horribly wrong with your transmission. Whether you want to purchase a single transmission filter or you would like to purchase them in bulk so that you always have them available, you will be able to do so on Parts Geek. The problems that can stem from a power flush is that the fluid is pumped backward through the hydraulic systems and valves.
All Replacement brand items are backed by 1-year, unlimited-mileage warranty. Anyway, the new ring had to be tapped in with a brass rod and a hammer. It is pretty easy to do, you will need someone to pour the fluid in wile you start the truck. My previous truck was a '98 5. If it see's nothing but hard use all year round. Here is info about the fluid. Three-quarters of all transmission filters today are not a simple screen, they are made of felt.
Proof of transmission fluid maintenance may be required. There are 2 main camps on this 1. Thanks, Matt If you do a search here you'll find a rather long thread from last year discussing this very subject. And if so, why is it happening and what can you do about it? Next year I'll have the shop drop the pan and change the filter. Figure 2 shows what you would be happy to see when you drop your pan. You dont need anything fancy to switch over to synthetic either. One of the mechanics was telling me that if we switch it over to Amsoil or anything else for that matter that it will void the warranty.
Chevrolet has been developed sophisticated transmissions through years and it is critical that you add the exact type of transmission fluid stipulated by your owner's manual typically in the back of the manual in a section titled Fluid Capacities. Standard for the 2500 is a solid Vortec 6. Putting the work in this luxury workhorse, my test beast was outfitted with a 6. If you don't drop the pan for clean-out, and replace the filter. Any name brand fluid is fine Mark. My thought is if its clean fluid its probably better than the dirty fluid that is breaking down. They are all a little bit different, but the procedure is the same when you want to change the transmission fluid and filter.
I know it also depends how much you tow, etc. So, to change it, or leave it alone? Run synthetic oil and change it frequently. I still don't see why guys refuse to change it often enough. This new automatic transmission filter kit is ideal for your restoration needs at an affordable price. I'm worried that I'll have it change, stir up some crud that developed in there, and damage the trans that is doing fine right now.
Let's just say that that metal ring is in there tight and I bent the tool before the ring came flying out with one last desperate yank. You want the dipstick to read warm which is the middle dot an the dipstick if it isn't there after adding the first quart from earlier add only one half quart too it so it wont be over filled and it should be fine after that. If you do not have one, then I suggest you get one. This is a major misconception. It must just be me.
I have done this process before on other trucks and have never had a problem. A transmission that runs cool will last longer. Which of course necessitates more often change intervals. Without servicing the filter, there is no way to know if the filter is clean of debris or nearing capacity. Today's transmissions are far more susceptible to malfunctions caused by fine dirt contamination.
Why bother changing your Motor oil? If the fluid seems to be a bit tired-looking, you may want to go to the next step. I have the money to have it rebuilt but of course I would rather spend it on other stuff. If it see's nothing but hard use all year round. This is an easy part to replace on your own - which means you do not need to rely on your local mechanic, saving you money. Changing only the fluid in the pan will normally be only … a couple of quarts.
