2006 Escalade ESV stock all well maintenanced
I been hearing that about driving in 3rd gear in city but would that really make any difference?
Nicee appreciate it broFlush the transmission fluid every 30k, and keep trans temps down. Most Escalades have the auxillary transmission cooler (the rectangle in front of the radiator in the front grille). But you could always upgrade to a larger cooler. Especially if you tow things on a regular basis, or put a lot of weight in the SUV.
niceeMine blew up at about 50,000km. Rebuilt under warranty. Blew up again a few years later at about 150,000km. Spent $6500 to have it built 'bullet proof' (race spec). It lasted 3 months. Tranny builder replaced under warranty with a new tranny built to race spec, citing a possible crack in the valve body (may have been the original fault too). Done another 80,000km and its still rock solid. Love it.
These trannies are the 4L65E which is a bit marginal for this size vehicle and engine, but they can be rebuilt to super strong, if you spend the bucks.
To increase the life of my tranny; I swapped to a full synthetic AC/Delco Dexron VI fluid and changed the filter. My transmission shift very smooth even though it has 227k miles on it. The synthetic Dexron VI fluid runs cooler also and can handle more heat before failing compared to the stock semi-synthetic Dextron fluid. I will change my fluid(drain and fill) once a year until it hit 327l miles and then change the filter again.Ok and Yaa I just mean in general or like extra additional things I can do or buy To keep my tranny good n differentials ,,
