Oh, now that you taken to someone else we feel it is our right to deny you any further help, but we were going help you all along but didn't feel the need to tell you til now. Your Chevy Silverado pulls its weight and whatever else you throw at it, no matter how tough the situation. Be sure to check your owners manual to determine the correct type of fluid to add - for Chevrolets, it will typically be in a section titled Fluid Capacities in the back of your manual. I made an appointment to get the trans filter and fluid changed, the tech recommended a total flush. Wondering- dealer told me there isn't really any need to change more frequently than every 100,000 miles unless plowing- every 50,000 miles , as the fluid will be fine and like new for at least 45,000, hence the change at 50,000. Remove the mounting bolts for the transmission pan, using the wrench, then carefully pry off the pan with a flat-head screwdriver. Replaced water pump at 38000 miles.
Remove the front bolts last. Loosen the bolts in the transmission pan far enough to allow the fluid to slowly pour out and into the drain pan. Although you may have a similar problem as those listed above, the repair may differ based upon a visual inspection of the vehicle. The capacity of the trans is 23 or 24 quarts. Once you have allowed most of the fluid to pour into the drain pan, remove the bolts completely and stick them in the magnet dish so you can find them easily when reinstalling the pan. My transmission falls within the time line in the bulletin.
Raise the pan straight up to install it onto the bottom of the transmission. Horrible noise in 4th and feels like the brakes are on: overrun clutches are applying due to a cracked or leaking forward piston. I do not recommend a machine flush on any vehicle. I'm not a wiz kid---just the voice of exasperating experience. Start the Blazer and check the fluid level on the dipstick.
Also, I reused the old filter seal as access to the old seal might have involved removing some of the transmission components. May also have worn boost valve can replace in the pan. The transmission pan on the bottom of the Blazer is a large aluminum shiny pan. Make sure all of the bolt holes on the gasket align with the holes on the pan. Then I stated to hear noises in my engine.
Sudden grinding noise with no prior warning primarily in 2nd gear, behavior in reverse may be abnormal: sunshell is fractured. Remove all of the transmission pan's bolts with the wench and then pry it off of the truck using a large flat screwdriver. Must be removed and transmission rebuilt. Clean the inside of the transmission pan with a solvent. I changed that once, when I got the truck, about 20,000 miles ago. Thanks, Matt Click to expand.
Crew Cab or Standard Cab Pickup, Transmission model: 4L60-E. I used to own a quick lube business in town here. I do my Suburban with a 4L60E transmission every 12,000 miles I still own the machine , and I bought it with almost 90,000 on the odo. Transmission must be removed and rebuilt, sooner rather than later. He's convinced that if I have the fluid changed, all I'll end up with are problems. Trans seems noisy when moving in 1st and Reverse, noise goes away instantly if you shift to N or the transmission goes into 3rd gear: Reaction planetary is worn out due to high miles or insufficient lubrication. Transmission will eventually die a loud, catastrophic death.
The contact discovered transmission oil leaking and the transmission gear was slipping from each gear. Add four quarts of transmission fluid through the filler tube in the engine compartment with a funnel's aid. But I may be wrong. You should replace the filter every time you change the fluid on your Chevrolet car unless you can have the transmission professionally flushed. Place jack stands underneath the front frame rails, just inside the inner ends of the lower control arms.

Disconnect the shift linkage that runs along the driver's side of the transmission pan--disconnect the cable end from the ball stud and then remove the bolts that mount the cable bracket to the transmission--this is needed to access some of the transmission pan bolts. These are overhead bolts that are not very easy to get to and they require something like a starz or torqz. Shift into every gear and then back to Park. Once they are all in, tighten them down fully with the socket set, moving in a crossing pattern as you go from bolt to bolt i. Insert 5-quarts of automatic transmission fluid into the funnel. Unscrew and remove the drain plug, using a flare-nut wrench, and let the fluid drain into the drain pan.
