Changing your transmission fluid

I recently changed my transmission fluid and figured it wouldn't hurt to share how I went about it. It's pretty simple as I assume many on this forum have already done it, but hopefully this might help someone. Although the fluid is listed as "fill for life", I figure it wouldn't hurt to change it

Worst case scenario you could lower the engine cradle to give you the clearance you need.

Great how-to! It inspired me to change mine next weekend. I just ordered the fluid from my dealer.

Is there a separate fluid necessary for LSD equipped transmissions?

Nope, they both use the same GM fluid.

Thank you very much...I'm coming up on 125k on my 2006 RL Comp and the clutch spring broke, and it's hard to shift below 40F until it drives about 5 miles.....I'm going to have to do some serious below dash and under-car work, these photos are a going to be a big help.
Macho Gracias !!!

PS. - After all these years I am still fighting the dreaded 1182 code. I will add a log of my experiences in that thread.

PPS - I still don't care what they say...these are the most fun little bastards I have ever driven...and I used to have a BMW 3 series. It Sucked compared to the Redline...IMHO.
