You dont need to let the fluid get warm, Im not sure what the reasoning is for that in that link because atf is so thin its not going to stay in the transmission if you try to pump it out and its cold.
Secondly I would definitely not pump your fluid out by unhooking a transmission line, that just honestly seems like a bad idea. My father is a transmission technician and he always drains by lowered the pan, its not exactly the same but it'd be like draining your oil by taking off a cooler line and letting the engine pump it out and then still taking out the drain plug.
If you're going to remove the pan anyway to change the filter then you may aswell just drop the pan and let the fluid run out, you wont get it all as quite a bit is stored in the tc but you'll get all you really need to.
Change filter, put back on the pan and fill it with dex6 and you're laughing.
yea i see ur tired of newbs like me asking dumb questions.

the issue is that for a standard transmission it gives me a gm part number.
it doesnt tell me what kind of gear fluiids or anything
and most of the stuff i ask on here is to avoid bullshit answers from dealerships that try to scam poeple.
so plz disreguard my dumb questions.
There are no dumb questions, but there are questions with insufficient info and those are frustrating to try and answer. Please don't stop asking questions so that others (Newbs as you call them) can benifit from answers, just make your question clear. Like year of car, manual or auto, coupe or sedan, you know stuff like that can influence the answer and sometimes the mood of members.

Wait now if you have a different engine apparently it's different according to owners manual. So check your ownwers manual for your transmission and engine.
Manual Transmission (2.2L and 2.4L L4 engines)
Manual Transmission Fluid (GM Part No. U.S. 88861800, in Canada 88861801).
I read on css dot net that there's tsb's for the extra fluid and I also read somewhere that dex 6 should not be used. Also mtf is ok if your in a warm place but just incase anyone reads this thread later on down the road, in colder climates atf should be used. Most ppl say use mobil 1 syn atf because its good for dex 3-H
So I have a beautiful 08 Cobalt and it seems her transmission is going. I want to know how to remove it in a visual step by step guide. I bought a Haynes Repair manual but that does not have it. It has low power creeping up to 20 mph. My repair guy said it blew a rubber seal in the trans likely...
Trying to get a pair of cables for my manual G5 base, there are 2 different part numbers one being almost $100cad more. I dont see what would be different the cars havent changed that much.The parts numbers are 15277760 and 25857595.
I just recently did timing chain and head gasket replacement. I watched a video that said not to rotate the motor by hand once you have it in time. My question is how do I put the tourqe converter bolts on without rotating the motor by hand to get to the other bolts. Thanks
Does anyone know where I can get a transmission kit for my 06 chevy cobalt for less than a 100. Dollars. Please help. And I live in mississippi near pearl do u know anybody that would put the kit in n not charge alot.
