  1. SRX 2nd Generation Forum - 2010-2016
    Hi All, I was wondering what you think about servicing the transmission filter on the SRX as supplementary scheduled maintenance? I understand that the filter is not externally serviceable and that there is a general debate on whether one should replace the transmission filter at all (e.g...
  2. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    2010 STS new to me. Has a good maintenance record from the dealer. When buying a new car, standard protocol for me is to change all of the fluids. Except of course transmission fluids without a change history. Still, I am wondering what you think about the 6L50 and the fluid.
  3. 2008-2013 CTS General Discussion
    My '08 CTS (165k miles, new to me, don't know full history) has a transmission that is just occasionally slightly clunky when first engaging. Completely typical of a vehicle with transmission fluid that is either old or slightly low. I've gone through the service manual to figure out how to...
  4. V-Sport General Discussion
    Which transmission fluid is preferred for the 2014 Aisin 8-speed TL-80SN, just the most recent Dexron VI (Dexron 6), or is there a specific flavor this transmission likes? Going to do a fluid/filter change (not flush) soon. I see Aisin even has their own line of fluids, which may be full...
  5. 2014-2019 CTS General Discussion
    Hey, I own a 2014 Cadillac Cts 2.0T RWD with a 6-speed auto transmission. Lately, I've noticed a weird sound coming from my car upon start-up while shifting through Park and Drive, going uphill, and at low speeds. I haven't gotten any check engine lights, I thought it was the well-known...
  6. STS Forum - 2005-2012
    I'd like to change the transmission fluid in my '11 STS. Of course, since we don't have dipsticks, this procedure requires us to make sure the transmission fluid temperature is in a specified range. Unfortunately, my Ancel AD310 scan tool seems unable to report my transmission fluid temperature...
  7. RWD DeVille/Fleetwood, Brougham 19xx-1996
    I've got a 1977 Coupe Deville, with only 72,000 miles on it. It's been sitting for 7 years, and just the other day my friend and I decided to get it running and back on the road. (It was serviced, and everything was working when it was parked.) The engine started right up, no problems, no...
  8. 2014-2019 CTS General Discussion
    Took my 2014 3.6L RWD CTS into the dealer today to get the driver's side window repaired (bad regulator/motor). Thought @ 6 years I'd have the transmission fluid and brake fluid replaced. Just got a call from the dealer that they can't do the transmission service. According to them the...

  10. FWD DeVille 1985-2005, Fleetwood, and 60 Special
    I have a 2005 DeVille with 130K miles. The tranny fluid has 25K life left according to the onboard computer. When I first start the car in the morning it shift very hard. Like it hangs in first and then in second with the engine straining. That last for the first 5 or 10 minutes then its gone...
  11. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    Hello! I'm not very good at classic cars! This is our first retro car. Friends please help pick up oils and fluids for this car... Engine, transmission, axles, antifreeze ... In your opinion, how often do you need to change fluids in this car? I'll be very grateful! Thanks! Engine: 425 CID V-8...
  12. 2014-2019 CTS General Discussion
    Let's just say yesterday was a long day, before I realized what I was doing I drained my transmission instead of my oil pan :( I now need to refill my Transmission but can't for the life of me figure out where the the Transmission fill plug is. I know it's under the car, but that's about it...
  13. Seville and Eldorado Forum
    Going to drain and refill my 04 Seville’s trans fluid along with the drain plug found after the pan is dropped. The car has 135k miles. Question. Has anybody here used Valvoline Max-Life synthetic trans fluid as a replacement fluid? Also ... including draining the fluid from the drain plug found...
