    A) The filter.... where exactly is it located, on the pan or on the tranny area? B) where is this magnet and what should I clean it off with?
    C) When u say have the engine running and in gear, you mean after I drain and clean the pan, I should run the car with no fluid in the tranny? or I should add a bit then turn the car on and leave it in park and fill the rest?


    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    you should see the filter when you drop the pan somewhere on the underside of the tranny.. the magnet is on the bottom of the pan. inspect for metal, this is a sigh of possible tranny problems, you may find a little but its ok..

    and fill it a bit then turn the car on to allow the fluid to be sucked up into the tranny, and fill up, hope it helps

    Thank you very much for your help. One last question, is there anything specific type of silicon sealant I should use when putting the pan back together with the tranny?

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    I will be doing this fluid change this weekend. And since I believe that a DIY guide with pictures would have helped me a great deal I will take pictures and write up a DIY guide to help beginners like me in the future.

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    I've completed my transmission fluid change. I notice a huge difference while driving my CTS after the fluid change. Hope this information helps.

    I got one from Napa. I'm sure there are other places around that sell them.

    My friend works for GM so he got me all OEM parts for 50% off. But I'm sure most parts store have them.
