You are watching: 2012 chevy equinox transmission fluid check


With the engine turn off the level is correct. V the engine running the level is below the mark. Correctly the v6 has the dipstick...
To properly examine the liquid level the auto needs to it is in at operating temperature. Leave the automobile running top top a level surface and also check it. Ideally you want it in the middle of the hatch marks as these transmissions are really sensitive if they space overfilled.

Hmm interesting. I drained 4.5. Placed 4.5 back in. Find that i needed one more quart pass the full to 5.5 quarts. Is that right? I recognize the rest is in the torque converter....
The factory company manual claims on a drain and fill it is 5.3 quarts. Ns have changed fluid on this transmissions loads of times and 5 quarts will perform it. In my previous experience 5.3 quarts is just a tiny overfilled. 5 quarts will placed it in the upper end of the hash marks. :cheers:

The factory organization manual says on a drain and fill the is 5.3 quarts. I have changed fluid on this transmissions tons of times and 5 quarts will perform it. In my previous experience 5.3 quarts is just a small overfilled. 5 quarts will put it in the upper end of the hash marks. :cheers:
thanks! i don"t have actually the factory manual. I guess I"m a small overfilled yet per the hash marks I"m not. Oh well. I just bought it. It has virtually 70k, therefore I"m wonder the last male that did the drain and also fill messed up. It doesn"t look choose it"s ever been readjusted though. Came out nice dark i did the drain and also fill twice in the last 2 days.
Always walk by the hash marks, and you will certainly be fine. Checking transmission fluid can be a complex process. GM has actually a two web page bulletin on just how to check it top top a 6T70. I always shoot because that the center of the hash marks because if you acquire the fluid hot it will have actually room come expand. Dexron VI seems to broaden quite a bit when it gets hot. If this transmissions acquire overfilled the can cause them to overheat I have seen the before. This transmissions room not choose the old ones with a removable pan, wherein overfilling come a particular extent will certainly not cause damage.

Wondering. . Execute you have a use for the drained oil?After the first fill and also drain, the second one isn"t too dirty. Deserve to the oil be provided for something else or just take the ti the recycling center?
good question!I have actually recycled some.5 quarts I gave to my sister- to use in her 1967 Nova. That leaks tranny fluid while parked.and im reasoning of reusing part in my 1970 Monte Carlo. I observed that it started to leak trans fluid. Ns think the O-ring ~ above the dipstick might have ultimately cracked.

Re:
Oh, rbarrios, I"m surprised you put these fluids in the old cars. Seems your sister"s automobile runs simply fine with them anyway.I to be advised not to go any type of newer 보다 Dexron III in the older vehicles due to the fact that the fabricated operates a bit various than the old fluids? probably that"s just for Dexron IV?I might as well save the liquid from mine Terrain to use in my older cars. Especially due to the fact that I don"t journey them much. An excellent idea.

I was advised no to go any newer 보다 Dexron III in the larger vehicles because the synthetic operates a bit various than the old fluids?
GM proposal using only Dexron by means of for older vehicles that compelled Dexron III or older. Factor being, Dexron III and older space not licensed by GM anymore and also it is anyone"s guess regarding what fluid you are actually getting. Dexron through in my opinion makes older healthy and balanced transmission preform excellent. It has actually so countless benefits such as higher thermal stability, reduced pumpability, better shear stability, and also a much longer life.
