Ya, its an auto, I have the 46re. Ive just never heard of a re-usable trans filter before. Wanted know for sure whether I need a new one or not when I take it in tomorrowAlso, you are talking about an auto right? I'm not sure how knowledgeable you are on this but manual gearboxes almost never have filters.
The manual nv 3500,4500 don't have filter they are "sealed". (meaning that there's thead tape on the brass plugs so they don't seze to the aluminum trans)Also, you are talking about an auto right? I'm not sure how knowledgeable you are on this but manual gearboxes almost never have filters.
Ive heard that about flushing too. I might just get the basic fluid and filter change. I'd change it myself but me and transmissions don't get along for some reason.I've heard that flushes can damage the trans. I've heard if you do the flush, makes sure they use the trans pump to pump the fluid, not an external pump that they have, as it can dislodge material in the trans and from the filter and push it through the trans causing damage. Supposedly if you use the trans pump to flush it it will not harm anything.
Personally, I'm a fan of pan drop services where you drop the pan, replace the filter, gasket, and replace the lost fluid.
Ya I will do that. Thanks for letting me know. I wouldn't have an auto either, but my wife doesn't like manual transmissions.I agree about not getting along with auto's that's why I don't have one. But don't forget have them do the bands. Some places forget about that on a pan drop trans service.
