When adding transmission fluid to your Sierra 1500, be sure to add it slowly as it will fill up quickly and is difficult to remove excess fluid if you overfill. This forum is meant only for members who wish to post the specific steps to complete a project or modification of some sort. The rest of the oil is in the cooler and torque converter I guess.

So even at 54k my fluid is crystal clear and pink filter kit cleaned up the fluid big time.
I'm assuming that this is an automatic transmission. If it was, it should still come with one, but I would recommend reusing the old one. Other times I drive it and it drives fine and the service light stays off. Also note that there is a plastic piece above the panel near the inside of the window that will need to be removed as well as the panel around the inside door handle. I used a Drimel tool to remove the pin. I called a local garage and was directed by the service man. Do I need to install a new gasket? Dealer has tried to fix problem 3 different times, but that is not working and has made condition worse than before.
All posts in here are put up for all to read and gain information on how to do something to their silverado or sierra. Took vehicle to the dealership, and they said it was the transmission. Take a flat screwdriver and pry towards the outside of this circle. Drop pan, change filter, install and add tf as needed. Time to drop the pan again tomorrow and rectify the situation.
After removing nut, and unplugging harness, you will find that there is actually a long slim harness attached to each side of the ignition harness. A flush is pretty easy with a couple of 5 gal pails, a couple lengths of rubber hose and a helper. But I may be wrong. Then work your way toward the front by removing 1 at a time from each side. But I'm broke enough not to pay someone else to do it. No further incidents have happened yet, but it is constantly on my mind. Looking like me and this truck are in it for the long haul pending nothing stupid happens.
I've been changing the external filter every other oil change since I installed the system. So even at 54k my fluid is crystal clear and pink filter kit cleaned up the fluid big time. Seems I used 13mm,15mm and 17mm sizes for the entire process. I drive a very similar duty cycle, but I'm at about the 66k mark. If this doesn't work, try putting the vehicle in … neutral, engine off, and roll down the driveway. I remove the top 6 hex screws which gave me access to the full mechanism. The door handle mechanism is part of the lock mechanism so the lock and the door pin will need to be removed from the plastic piece that is the door handle.
Look at the old oil filter and make sure the rubber gasket ring came off with the old filter. Wonder if the pan gasket is re-usable on the '14+ 6spd. If the transmission fluid level in your Sierra 1500 is low, you need to add transmission fluid through the dipstick tube. Since this time, when I pull the trailor for a long period of time, the truck will again feel as if it is in neutral. They are all a little bit different, but the procedure is the same when you want to change the transmission fluid and filter. If my how to gets approved, I will post a link to it in this thread. I'm sure every car is different.
Note: all capacities are approximate. Has the computer been scanned to determine what codes are stored in it? It really wasn't a good time when I realized that the seal was loose and had to repeat the process over again. The filter went in tight as well. And if to change, just to drop the pan and change the fluid that drains and the filter, or to drop the pan, change filter and powerflush it and change the fluid? It should be at the right level, but why can't I see the level when it's hot? If you do a lot of towing or hauling with your Silverado, Chevy recommends that you change the automatic transmission fluid every 15,000 miles. They replaced seals on the rear shaft and the rear shaft housing. Which of course necessitates more often change intervals. Properly discard the old filter.
Insta-trac 4x4 transfer case, electronic shift transfer case. The truck in 2004, 161,558 miles prior to my ownership had some transmission work performed. I read somewhere that you have to loosen the entire crossmember and place a jack somewhere under the transmission to get it off. Is there a how-to somewhere for changing out the transmission fluid and filter? This resulted in extended stopping distance. Need to take some clearance measurements and see if I want to do the low profile or deep pan.
Carefully remove the old gasket. All I know is in the city rush hour traffic the trans behaves much better after I installed the filter kit and the fluid got a lot cleaner looking after a few thousand miles. Replace the clips or bolts where necessary. If you don't drop the pan for clean-out, and replace the filter. Around the periphery of the panel there will be 9 barbed nylon pins that take a little force, as well, to dislodge; 4 on the bottom, 3 on the hinge side, and 2 on the outer edge.
