Well i called up Firestone, and talked to a guy over there and he actually did not recommend a trans flush stating it would make things worse and he thinks my trans is failing basically.


how could it make things worse?

There is always the chance that doing a flush could knock something loose and make it worse. Personally I think dropping that pan to inspect the magnet, changing the filter and fluid is perfectly safe. I made up a new article for changing the filter and fluid. https://www.gmforum.com/t278423/ I've done several of these, and 2 of them had transmissions that would not go in to gear cold. After changing the filter things worked fine. If the filter is plugged or really restricted it will prevent the fluid from flowing and causing the pressure to drop, making it harder to engage the clutches.

The filter is easy to find. Just look at the new one and you will have no problem finding the one in the trans.

You will need a inch pound torque wrench to torque teh pan. 120 inch pounds.

well over the winter i took it in to get it done cost 70 bucks, tons of metal shavings in the pan magnet was completely covered , it shifts a lot quicker inter gear in the mornings [ not sure if its the warmer weather or what] although i just use drive now and not overdrive.
