I just changed the transmission fluid in my 2005 CTS 3.6.
I got 5 quarts out of the drain plug, dropped the pan, cleaned it, changed the filter.
BUT I COULD ONLY GET 3.5 QUARTS BACK IN the fill hole. -help-
I jacked the car way up on one corner to push the fluid to the other side of the pan, but this only helped me get about another 1/2 quart in. I started the car and put it in gear hoping that this would make more room, but it did not.....So I am running around with 1 less quart than I took out.
How in the world do I get more in there, there is no dip stick and it seems impossible to get the last quart in through the fill plug hole. I bought one of those pumps to pump it in the fill hole, works pretty good, but as I get close to pumping in the last quart, it starts pouring out the hole as fast as I'm puming it in.
Please help I really would fill better if I could get the same amount in that I took out. Thanks, Wayne
