    is Dexron VI preferred for a 2000 Malibu 4T40-E

    yes, but if that transmission has not gotten "the love and periodic fluid changes" throughout its life, you bring it to a quick demise by changing all of the fluid all at once. And I would be worried about a transmission shop that is not well aware of this! I know you are a respected...

    is Dexron VI preferred for a 2000 Malibu 4T40-E

    So perhaps some of you geniuses who are sitting back sounding all authoritative would like to explain why such a high percentage of transmissions that have never been serviced, then suddenly have all of the fluid changed or flushed at 150K, suddenly have issues within a month or three. I used...

    College football playoffs

    yeah, 8 teams is best that many teams and you would rarely ever have the truly best team not included, although this year, it might be LSU you know how they should decide the playoff teams: get a room full of coaches and have them vote on the 4 or 8 teams THEY DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO PLAY!

    New Jersey bans 19 motor oils

    how do we in the other 49 states get these bad oils banned? I can see it being impossible to get these banned in the red states, where any regulation of anything is considered an attack on business by the under-educated majority <img src="/forums/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="smirk" title="smirk"...

    is Dexron VI preferred for a 2000 Malibu 4T40-E

    have a 2000 Malibu with 4T40-E transmission (3.1 engine) with 155K miles and I believe it calls for Dexron III - I am doing a pan drop, and changing the filter out with new GM filter, and changing out the oil feed manifold proactively, as these are known to break around 150K miles. Is it OK to...

    94 F150 Cuts out above 2000 rpm

    Hey, before you go and start changing out this and that on a 94 F150, let me tell you what is, by far, the most common cause of this issue on this vehicle. The capacitors inside your ECU have gone bad - the is a very common issue with this year and model of truck, once they get this old...
