Trans svc....almost right!

Recommended Posts


I finally got around to servicing the trans on my 2001 2500hd with lt80 and 6.0l, and will say this.

FINALLY, someone had the brain to put a drain plug on the pan!!!!!!!!!

Down points.

1.  Shifter cable is in the way of pan and had to be removed at the bracked to get the pan out.

2.  the drain plug is 'bellied'........so, when you drain the pan, there is still a half of quart of fluid in sitting in the pan........

Well, my hats off to chevy for finally coming up with this 'ingenious idea' (about freaking time).   Perfect, well no, but a big step.

Now, if they would just think a little bit more about us guys who service our own vehicles still.......a dying breed I feel with the way they design things these days.

PS.  by the way, no one still has a replacement aftermarket trans filter out for the new HD's....dealer only.....which means ? dollars for it.......ouch.
