neat page but doesnt have what i'm interested in. I'm replacing the transmission in my SLE and was hoping to get the factory breakdown on the R&R of it. Of course having a factory manual is always a good thing. I bought one from Ebay however what i got was not a factory manual, it turned out to be parts of manuals for several different cars and none of them turned out to be a 200-2005 Bonneville.

All you have to do is go to Autozone.com, and register.....

Then you add a vehicle to "MY Vehicles".......... and then click on "Repair Help", and click "Vehicle Repair Guides" from the drop down menu......not all vehicles will have the info you need, but it is a pretty good site for information....find most of my wiring diagrams there...

isnt alldatadiy $15 per car per year? I know I know i should just give in and buy the $300 set of factory manuals. sometimes it is nice to know it'* right there in your hand without the oh no, there is no service in the garage to the net or oh heck don't get that oil on my laptop. I should have the new trans this weekend or early next week. local dealership tells me it'* 12 hour job flat rate. but I think thats a bit much. I have a fully tooled shop and lift at my disposal so i'm thinking I can beat that. seen a lot of dealerships putting it to people lately. state inspection wise. it'* a crime what they are doing to people who have no clue, but on the other hand, in a flat rate garage, if you are not telling people it needs fixed you prolly are not making much money. I'd rather be poor and sleep at night myself.

Well, I wondered if you had some type of lift.......

Have you eve replaced a 4t65e in a GM car before? Yes you will have to drop the cradle.......you will also have to lower the engine/tranny on the driver'* side, to get clearance for removal of the tranny....

I think flat rate is around 10 hours.....add an hour to flush the coolant lines and radiator cooler(you don't want contaminants in the fluid going back into the new/replacement tranny)....road test and check for leaks.....so 12 hours sounds about right.....

Is this a SRTA or something from a junkyard? If junkyard, you need to seriously consider doing some extra work on it.......or you could be inheriting problems from the replacement tranny(valve body, solenoids, etc.)........otherwise, at minimum, you replace the axle seals and torque converter seal, and replace fluid and filter.....
