    I want to check the oil level in the gearbox? The oil level must be measured with the engine running, or cold?

    Thank you.
    The way the manual says is engine at operating temp then (starting at 1) slowly work through the gear ranges stopping at park

    Re: Transmission Fluid Change

    Question regarding transmission filter and fluid change in low mileage 2004 ESV:
    I bought this truck with very low mileage and wanted to ensure all maintenance was up-to-date. I did have a hard time removing the transmission pan, but eventually did and got the fluid changed too (Dex VI). However, now I feel some "slipping" between 4-5th gear shifts around 50-55mph where the tachometer jumps between 1500-2000rpm very briefly. It does not always happen, but often enough that I concerned I knocked something loose while under there.

    The truck (2004 ESV) has only 60k miles and the old fluid looked very clean when I 'flushed' using the pump method into bucket. Therefore I think the transmission is good, but I must have done something. What could I have done that would have taken a nice shifting transmission and caused a poor 4-5th shift?


    UPDATE: Thanks to 'Cadillac Man', I now understand that I was not checking the fluid level properly. Checking and adding fluid while at 'operating temp' revealed I was nearly 2 qts low! Thank you, sir.

    Check and add fluid if needed as low fluid will cause poor shifting quality
