When adding tranny fluid, has anyone ran a hose from tranny to top of engine to pour fluid in with a funnel? If so, what size OUTER diameter hose did you use?.
Jerri, I would if it were mine. I did my '16 with Polaris brand which was about $11-12 bottle. Dont remember for sure but I believe it takes about 3. I used a local quick lube shop who does my oil changes as well (with my oil and filter) as he is very familiar with our type motors and did the drain for me for $20. Don't know why anyone would be against using Polaris transmission fluid!I have 51,500 on my 15 sl. Still shifts great
Should I still change?
I don't know what the diff is between the two. Might be worth asking svc dept at local GM dealer. Hopefully they might be familiar with our manual xmsn which is believe is made by Aisin (may not be spelled correctly). Perhaps they would exchange it with you if what you have is something they normally use. There is something about certain (yellow?) metal parts in that xmsn that require GL3. Like you, I couldn't find a GL3 synthetic anywhere, other than Polaris. Let us know how you make out.I ordered gl3 acdelco and got shipped acdelco gl3 19354435 manual transmission fluid instead of 89021806. Guess I will go with what they shipped since it is gl3 75w90
That's what I get from ordering online. Had a hard time finding gl3. Should have gone with Polaris then no question
If it is a GM product and the bottle states that it is GL-3 rated, there shouldn't be any reason not to use it?Pace auto claims the numbers have changed but fluid is the same
Maybe this might help, where this is one alternative? SynPower TDL 75W-90 - Manual Transmission and Axle Oils - ValvolineLike you, I couldn't find a GL3 synthetic anywhere, other than Polaris.
Yep, I just wanted to make sure of the condition of the fluid and then my error in accepting others recommendations that there were better fluids that could be installed.Wow 20k and your changing tyranny oil? I changed mine at 52k and it was still shifting great but manual says change at 50k.
Even though the label of the Royal Purple says that it is ok for yellow metals, I will be a lot more comfortable actually having a GL-3 rated fluid in there.................Did my first SS at 10 or 15K, can't remember, with Polaris fluid. Changed Angle Dr on new SS at about 1500 or so. Plan on doing it again pretty soon. 4500 and will shortly change motor oil and have cover put on transmission. Lots of folks go "by the book" and there's nothing wrong with that; its whatever makes u feel good.
