Gabriel9766 asked what GM recommended so I answered his question "what's GM's msi on transmission pan/service?"
He also said he a 2010 Impala, they didn't option the 3.6L and 6 speed that year. His transmission is a 4T65E, dropping the pan you'd lose around 9-11 quarts of fluid........ It's more having it flushed. When you do the pan drop your going to want a new filter too, luckily the transmission pan gasket is reusable.
Wal-Mart doesn't carry brand name dexron 6 atf, only house brand and I honestly don't trust it because you don't know where it came from. It's cheaper there for a reason, Castral sells dexron 6 but it's at $7-$8 a quart.
The transmission was never known to fail before 100000 miles, they useally start developing problems at around that mileage but not fail. Even David at Triple Edge Performance has stated this in some of the Emails I have, honestly the only thing David ever stated that starts to be a problem is the input clutch piston seal wearing out around 60,000 miles.
Maybe it's because I didn't address the answer to Gabriel9766 that I got a reply back like that?
