Total mileage on trans is 188,000. I added pictures and video beware, they're big. The two wires are connected to it through a plug, take it off and then use a socket wrench to unscrew the switch. However, very little fluid will drip. Fluid will start pumping out the tube into the bucket. The Trans oil dip stick has a red cap and is located on the left side of the engine when standing in the front of truck and toward the windshield. In 1992 it is most definitely a 4L80E.
Also if you stick your finger in the hole … and touch fluid, it is full. Be careful because there will be some fluid in there. Two ways of fixing the problem: 1 get a new 4wd actuator from the auto parts store or 2 log on to 4wheelparts. The shift linkage is located on the driver's side of the trans. Mine didn't feel like cooperating. It's a kit that comes with the filter, gasket and seal. 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.
This is when you know you've changed all the fluid. If the transmission fluid level in your Sierra 1500 is low, you need to add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube. I eventually loosened the mount and jacked up the transmission enough to remove the pan. Here's what the original fluid looked like. Check your owners manual or call the dealer. As a matter of fact, I think that can be a project for today. Carefully remove the old gasket.
Once I got the edge away from the wall, I used needle nose pliers to get it out. It will take about 30 seconds and will pump out 3-4 quarts of fluid. I though I might do a write up since I haven't seen a how to with pics. Save money by learning how to replace the filter. Remove the pan bolts and snake the pan out. I sure hope it helps out someone else who is wanting to but hesitant to do this.
On the next transmission oil change I will install a drain plug to make the job a lot easier. Problem is well known encoder motor sensor in the transfer case. To place the new seal, coat it in trans fluid and use a socket of the same diameter on an extension to give you something to hold onto and tap it into place. So maybe I just haven't seen the right documentation. Just a quick question here. I do need to get a drain hose though. Now I planned on changing the filter.
Is there a vacuum module or something that he may have forgot to hook up or does he need to hook a computer up to it and reset the transmission? If you are having problems with the transmission in your Sierra 1500, such as clunky shifting or hesitation, check the fluid level first - it is amazing how many drivers pay thousands of dollars for transmission work when a half quart of transmission fluid would have fixed the problem. The meat and potatoes of this procedure was taken from here. Some have done it without removing it, but I couldn't tell you how. I would like to complete the 4 run grand slam. Some just inspect it and leave it alone if it looks good.
Loosen the remainder of the bolts so that the pan is allowed to tilt and release fluid into the drain pan. I would love to add this patch to my jacket of accomplishments. The oil was black as could be. The dealer says to use only 10W30 motor oil. Fluid and filter every 24K, they would have far less problems with the transmission.
At this point, I'll go over how to change the filter. It is completely safe and easy to do. Under the vehicle on one side of the transmission, normally the driver's side, you will find 2 separate plugs. Watch the tube until you see bubbles or hear a bubbling sound and immediately shut the truck off. You'll see the seal that matches the one in the kit. According to Chevy maintenance guidelines, you should change the automatic transmission fluid in your Silverado every 30,000 miles if you use it under normal operating conditions.
What a cool and capable truck eh? Exceeds all vehicle manufacturers recommendations. He put a new engine in it 5. . Replace the clips or bolts where necessary. You'll need to pick up a fitting for the radiator and some clear tubing. 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.

He can get it to shift to second if he does it manually but cant get third or fourth. Here's a shot of mine after removal. Obviously, be sure you've got a catch pan for any residual fluid. I'm surprised a dealer would say that; even though it's a good answer. If your front driveshaft rotates while your in 4wd, but wheels turn like in 2wd. To remove the fitting, pull back the black plastic bracket to prevent damaging it. It may take less, but you want to be sure all the old fluid has been flushed out and you've got enough to top it off.
