Then they do a total fluid exchange to include the transmission cooler and a conditioner is added. A transmission that can't even last 100,000 miles. I noticed about a year ago or so my chevy Impala began doing this slipping thing when coming to a stop and accelerating to first gear with my automatic transmission. Scrape off any old gasket, clean the pan out with solvent and make sure you don't loose the magnet. No change I have a n extended warranty that covers the problem if the dealer ship finds the problem. This Impala has been a nuisance for a while.
I cannot imagine a manufacturer not recommending the correct service, especially if they warrant the components for 100,000 miles. I am told I will have to get it replaced to fix the problem but after reading all the same complaints about the same problem I don't even want to waste my money on replacing it with another transmission that may give out in another 2 or 3 years. I bought a haynes repair manual for my car. I told him to adjust the bands and it should be good for another 50,000. I still owe 2 more years of monthly payments.
Joe Positive feedback is appreciated. I know for some vehicles the transmission filter and fluid is not recommended to be changed until 100,000 miles. I do recommend this if it is done at regular mileage intervals. Drop the transmission oil pan Raise the car high enough so that you can work under it safely, a hoist or on 4 jack stands. I asked him about the filter, and he said that I did not have a filter nor do I have a gasket, but instead I have a screen. Clean the pan with solvent and wipe dry so there is no harmful residue. Some darkening is normal, but if it is reddish brown or mustard color and smells like burnt varnish, it is worn out.
I want to change the filter and pan gasket and the fluid. Wow I stepped into that one. To replace the fluid in the torque converter and oil cooler also, follow these steps. I would much rather pay somebody else to do it. My mother is now without transportation because her transmission is gone. You need to let off the gas and let it re-engage before going again. On these you cannot check the level.
Buying a used 2004 Chevrolet Impala transmission from a non-reliable dealer is an unnecessary risk. I don't know what you mean by most shops. I can't believe they won't fix this defective transmission. With the vehicle running, you remove a bolt located on the transmission. I owe over a year and a half still in payment's for the car and the extended warranty expires on April 22 20012. Remember- if you park on a hill or any incline be sure to block the wheels! I would not advise anyone to purchase an Impala.
I wouldn't do it that way. My sisters impala's transmission slips at 70000 miles. You add Transmission fluid until it starts dripping from the hole missing the bolt. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex. I will only buy american regardless of this issue because they are cheaper to fix when need be.
Yes I would trust your father if I were you. I mentioned this problem to a freind of mine that lives by me and he just kind of laughed to me and stated him and his wife used to have one and at 80,000 miles the Impala started doing this. Some gaskets have four holes slightly smaller than the rest to allow four bolts through the pan and through these smaller holes to hold the gasket in place. They use a cleaner and then flush the entire system including the cooler using new fluid. This soon became about 6 inches. Fresh fluid is translucent and cherr … y red. One you can drop the trans.
The power steering pump is above the transmittion and behind the center of the engine. You can't miss it, looks like it has no reason to be there. Check the fluid level again and check for leaks. How much fluid is drained by changing the fluid by removing the pan? Then loosen each pan bolt a turn or two and loosen one corner more than rest. Please call for customer service and availability at 1-877-866-8372 ex.
Vehicle has a non-serviceable transmission cooler. Avoid scratching the metal and make sure the pans gasket surface isnt bent or distorted. About 60k miles it started to hard shift, then started overheating. They were lucky enough to get rid of it and it did not act up at the dealer ship the day they traded it in. And they said that if I keep driving it I will be doing major harm to the tranny. It is very delicate and cheap fluid will make the transmission slip. If the filter has a long intake neck, gently push the neck into place without unseating the O-Ring.
