Hi,I have a 2010 GMC Terrain - SLE: 4 cylinder.I to be told through the dealer the I should replace the transmission filter/fluid. I have read on quite a few posts, therefore I understand the difference in between the "service change", verses the complete flush, and understand the options to perform a organization change, journey for a hundred mile or so, and also then carry out it again.However, what I have yet to number out is wherein the infection pan is?Is this something the someone have the right to send a snapshot of it, or in ~ least define in information where the is?Also, i am expecting a pan through a drainpipe plug, but is that not correct?Thanks for any kind of help.
there is no drainpipe pan ~ above these.there is 1 drain plug.On these transmissions- the filter is no user serviceable.Its a lifetime filter that is just replaced as soon as the transmission is serviced.Usually that is serviced when it breaks-- and also has come be removed from the car....at that point the infection is break-up open-- literally-- together its 2 halves placed toghether.That is why on these 6 speeds- I like to execute drain/refills end the life-to keep the fluid fresh and clean.vs wait to 100,000 then removing old/dirty fluid.

Thanks.At the threat of sounding too lot of a novice...Where is the transmission located where ns would remove the drain plug? Is it in the front (slight left the center)?Thanks.

Just adjusted my transmission fluid in between getting residence from work and also nightfall (so that *is* really easy). An initial change since new and the vehicle currently has 76,452 mile on it. A few bits of information from mine experience:1.) drain done through cold fluid. This is what is recommended.2.) The plug size is 11 mm. The fastener tightening spec (for any of the 4 transmissions: 6T40/6T45/6T70/6T75) is 12 N-m (106 lb in). One thing that looked strange to me: after ~ hand-threading in and also torquing come 12 N-m, the bolt head was still sticking out (not flush through the transmission case). I couldn"t psychic if this to be the way it was originally, yet looking at rbarrios" picture, it appears this is normal. 3.) mine 6T70 (MH2) transmission only dropped out 4.25 Qts, for this reason that"s what went earlier in. Believed that to be on the low side, but per the Helm manual, all over from 4.2 - 6.3 Qts may drain out. Total capacity is just 9.5 Qts (6T70/6T75). BTW: 6T40/6T45 is only 8.5 Qts capacity.4.) liquid still had actually red tint when wiped with record towel - also after 76,452 miles!5.) Cap had dipstick attached. Ns think there was some dispute whether there to be a dipstick on this transmissions. Indigenous what I have the right to tell native the Helm manual, every 4 transmissions have a dipstick attached come the cap.6.) fluid used: Dexron VI, Supertech (Walmart) : $4.25/qt. No synthetic, however I believed this was good enough to flush out the old fluid (and that knows - i may just leave it in there ... Supertech is licensed and approved).
