You are watching: 2005 chevy impala transmission fluid capacity


Okay I have actually done some browsing seems that plenty of are using different fluid. Before I had any kind of idea around how bad transmission flushes are I had actually it done. I am sure filter was not replaced so I will certainly be dropping the pan and also replacing filter. I just don"t know exactly how much fluid I will need to replace what is in the car now. Therefore does anyone recognize the full capacity and what are the alternatives of form of fluid?

Honestly ns think I witnessed that details in the owner manual. Additionally places choose orielys and also pep boys pan tell you end the phone. Walk that through my Tahoe.

Dexron 6 for fluid and should it is in 7.5qrts. My haynes claims 10qrts but that is because that a full flush (radiator core and lines). I would simply drain, replace filter, refill, inspect level and include as necessary.

I wouldnt use the Dex by means of if you have a 00-05, particularly if its to be a lengthy time between services. Dex vi is a fabricated based fluid and could reason some concerns for you shortly after. I"ve heard indigenous a bunch of men who dropped the pan on your car and also refilled through Dex VI only to have the trans walk out quickly after. It also happened to me, I"m not saying Dex through is the cause but from what ns heard before I wouldn"t use it uneven your trans was rebuilt or you have actually a 06+ vehicle that calls for it.

No the is not, the is the replacement fluid for DexIII. That"s the just reason why it"s recommended, you have the right to still find constant Dex in the stores and that"s what I would certainly recommend to usage unless prefer I said before. You have actually a rebuilt trans or you have a 06+ car. K3:

00-05 originally dubbed for dexron III, however there to be a bulletin released transforming it to VI, currently all GM trannies native 00- at the very least 11 call for dexron VI. If someone had actually a failure after servicing, it wasn"t anything to carry out with the fluid.

Regardless, it will certainly prevent an ext issues 보다 III will, so ns don"t recognize why you would certainly be recommending against it. How many transmissions have you gone with in how many miles again?
Going on mine 4th, yet that has actually nothing to execute with anything. You men saying that GM just says to usage Dex by means of is simply wrong. Through the exemption of the 8th gen men everyone of our cars came through Dex III in it. I say stick through whats been offered in the trans native the beginning, and great luck if friend dont. K3:

Dexron 3 hasn"t to be licensed since 2006 so, GM no much longer regulates it. Dexron vi is NOT completely synthetic and also is backwards compatible with any Dex 3 trans. In RARE situations overtime vi will reason drying and also cracking of internal seals. Dex 3 and 6 need to not be mixed and also this is likely what causes more issues. Dexron 6 is far superior come 3!

Nevermind I gained it backwards. Seems you can mix dex6 through dex3 if the trans calls because that dex3 but, not the other means around. If it calls for dex6 perform not mix with dex3. Your ideal were not reading your info since you space dead wrong! If dex3 is better than exactly how come GM didn"t obtain the patent re-issued? thats right due to the fact that dex6 is more powerful (withstand greater temps and also abuse if still gift thinner 보다 dex 3). Note: there are hand-operated transmissions and transfer situations that need dex 3 authorized fluid. Gm has likewise said the transmission"s 2006 and also up need to use dex6 and that dex3 will cause seal issues.

YOU clear AREN"T analysis A cursed WORD i SAID, I never said Dex III was far better in any method shape or form. Permit me to speak this clearly, if your car did not come from the factory filled v Dex vi then there is no factor to use Dex VI! Dex III will certainly do simply fine since its been in there for X amount of mile to begin with. This is the point I"m trying to make :gaah:

^^^Okay because your the expert, exactly how am I ruining transmissions by using a liquid that it is been provided time and also time again up till 2006 as soon as it was quit being used? :dunno: just due to the fact that a liquid isn"t license is granted by GM anymore doesn"t mean its no to be used. If the were the instance then nobody on this forum is to use continual 10W30 anymore. They room to use totally synthetic 10W30 native this point forward! because its superior! :thatswck:

I agree ns still usage the enlarge trans fluid in my older cars. This is the same dispute as running continual oil for 200,000 mile and also then move to fabricated oil some have problems(usually) some don"t. Her choice, her cark3:

My suggest being castle don"t no longer k3: and GM doesn"t control it anymore so, if you desire to usage an alternative brand "supposed to meet dex 3 requirements", by all method go ahead. Not me. Dex 6 is lower viscosity and operates much far better in harsh winter conditions. That"s enough for me to make the switch if the vault owners have actually not already. They likely have though as it to be serviced by elhart a few years ago.
