Trade In?

So it turns out, our 2004 Vue V6 with 80K is beginning to have transmission issues. Slipping between 2nd and 3rd. There is also a vibration/knocking coming from the engine housing. The mechanic...

Re: SecondHand Transmission

Good it be that the ATF needs to be completely flushed and filled by a mechanic? Other forums suggest that this has fixed the problem. I'm just wondering that a DIY flush is not thorough enough..Any...

It keeps slipping and whining at low residential speed.
All my research points to a recall from GM that did not included this...

Is there an old post where someone had shown the steps to changing the oil for a 2004 Vue V6 3.5?

Thanks!

Re: Knocking

My local independent mechanic say's he cannot see any transmission issues.
He suspects that it could be a cracked flexplate.
Sounds plausible?

Re: 'I' Gear

Good news.
The transmission noise is no longer present.
I had drained 5 QTS, and added 5 QTS.
Drove around 20 miles.
Drained and replace 5 QTS again.

So on the return I will have put on 40 miles.
Then will drain and add another 5.

Re: 'I' Gear

Hey MoparNut.

As you know, I am doing a home based fluid exchange.
If I place 5 QTS in, shouldn't I be able to drain again?
Physics tells me that when I put 5 QTS in, then another 5 QTS will

Re: 'I' Gear

So put in 5 QTS and then run the car for a day or 2, then do the same?

Re: 'I' Gear

I understand that I should flush old ATF out. But should I run the 5 qts over time before an additional 5 Qts? Or just simply drain, cap, fill, drain, cap, fill?

Re: Transmission Fluid Color

That's weird, all the information I gleaned pointed towards this Fluid because the V6 3.5L is a Chain Belt.
Hence the reason I selected the Valvoline CVT. It's recommended for Saturn DEX-CVT.

My Point exactly.
I am considering taking a jar of the old fluid to the dealer and get my money back for the 'flush'.
Last question: I am now ready to replace the old with the new:

Should transmission fluid that was put into my car in 4/12 be this color?
I am posting pics of both new and old fluids.
I am suspecting the transmission fluid may not have been performed after all:...
