I think a transmission fluid and filter change is long overdue for my truck as it has just under 103k on it and the transmission has never been touched, at least according to my records that I got from the previous owner. Would you mind telling me how you did yours? The 6-foot-6-inch bed comes with a 25-gallon fuel tank and the 8-foot bed comes with a 34-gallon fuel tank. There is no park on a manual tranny! This bolt was so long, I was afraid to jack the back of the tranny to clear the xmember. If fluid drips out,it is full. The new filter did actually come with a new seal. Also, the truck does take the shallow pan filter. It's a noticeable difference from how it was before and this time the filter and seal are actually installed.
Just changing the filter should be half that amount for each transmission. The content of this bulletin does not apply to manual transmissions or transfer cases. And thanks for the info. Again, check your owners manual or look on the dipstick. Other than a little smoking due to fluid spillage, all went well. I'm not sure which Dexron to use on my dad's 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500 Extended Cab Long Bed 4x2. The filter went in tight as well.
It really wasn't a good time when I realized that the seal was loose and had to repeat the process over again. This video shows you how to add transmission fluid to your 1997 Chevrolet C1500. I am using ramps to raise the front of the truck. Just feel around inside of it to make sure none of the gasket material is torn or damaged. But I'm broke enough not to pay someone else to do it. Wouldn't want to bend something in the front. So, I am forced to do it myself.
They are all a little bit different, but the procedure is the same when you want to change the transmission fluid and filter. Jun 14, 2011 There are 3 transmissions that could be in your car,the 3 speed auto and 4 speed auto overdrive,and of course the manual 5 speed. The best way I have found is to remove the rear 4-6 bolts first. The 3 speed is designated the 3T40,the 4 speed auto is the 4T40E trans. The axles do not go into side of transmission either. If you're planning on keeping the truck for a long time and changing the trans fluid regularly, you can pick up a drain plug kit from your local parts store.
Time to drop the pan again tomorrow and rectify the situation. I read somewhere that you have to loosen the entire crossmember and place a jack somewhere under the transmission to get it off. How should I got about this. And now I have a happy Chevy. However, a four-speed, automatic transmission with overdrive is an option for all trims. So, I'd be ramped and jacked all at once.
Fuel pump sends pressure to injectors. While TranSynd was developed mainly to meet the harsh operating conditions of heavy-duty transmissions in severe operating conditions like transit buses, its benefits translate to the pickup truck market. After that dex-6 is good. Why not flush the system and get it all out. .
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. But boy, I can't tell you how many times I thought ill of the engineers that designed the parts placement. TranSynd was released in 1999; you can see 2001 press releases about it and mentioning the extended drain intervals that Allison advertised for Allison-equipped motorhomes and rescue equipment running TranSynd. My rig's identical and has now done 137k kilometers with no issues whatsoever Except crank position sensor but I did have the transmission serviced at 80k by an Allison trained guy. If you're not sure, ask your dealer. Just from looking at other posts it seems that a filter change is the way to go over a flush. If you're sure the wiring checks out, and the timing is where it should be, you're going to have to replace the crank sensor and see if it starts then.
The new filter did actually come with a new seal. So, I had to take the transplate off by taking the other two screws holding it in place. I do not think there was any way it could have been damaged through the timing chain replacement. It's a noticeable difference from how it was before and this time the filter and seal are actually installed. My truck and I are in New Zealand by the way. Install a few bolts by hand so pan will stay up by itself, then install remaining bolts.
