    Default newbee question on 06 silverado trans service

    New to this forum, looks like a very imformative place. I recently purchased a 06 silverado with 50k miles on it. I have been slowly going thru the truck and repairing or replacing neglected items. The truck seems to have been used pretty hard before I got it. I would like to service the transmission. It does not have any problems but I am concerened that it has been used pretty hard. How much fluid will I need if I drop the pan and replace the filter? Aslo are there any obstacles to getting the pan out? Should I use any kind of additive when I refill? Thanks Mike

    You need to give us a lot more information. What size motor, what transmission do you have? Or you can check the capacities section of the owners manual if one is present.

    Yea I guess that would help!! sorry. It is a 2006 silverado 2wd 1500 crew cab 5.3 v8, the trans is a 4l60e, has tow package and locking differential. Thanks for any info. It came without a manual so I am not sure of capacities.

    Welcome to the site! Good luck with the tranny service. I have serviced the tranny in my 87 Blazer but now I find it much easier to take my newer vehicles to the dealer or a qualified transmission service center esp. for having lower mileage (just me and my opinion).

    BTW, the 67 Goat is my favorite GTO! In hi-school, my friend had a 67 Hurst Goat with small block 400 and factory Hurst shifter on the floor. I had a 70 Chevelle and we were always racing.
