Removing ANY transmission is a PITA,,,as far as I'm concerned.

Just had a few different procedures than I'm used to with the older setups and as mentioned, I'm just getting too old to be rolling around under a truck like this.

Has anyone EVER been successful at removing the factory drain plug,in the later GM automatics??...every one I see come into my friends shop has the drain plug's SUPER THIN "hex head" completely rounded off,and nothing he tries using to grip it will grab well enough to unscrew it!--(much like the filler & drain plugs on NP 208's Imight add!)............................................. .................................................. ...................seems like they put super locktite on the dran plug on day one,to ensure it'll NEVER come out..the few he's had luck removing,were the ones that were never touched by a wrench yet--and they only came out after the pan was off,and heated up with a torch...WHY did GM bother to put a drain plug in,that cant be removed 99% of the time??...............................Friend did a tranny filter & fluid change on an '06 GMC yesterday--wasn't fun,the crossmember had to be dropped,and some other stuff was in the way too..took 2+ hours to do a "simple" job,that should take 15-30 minutes tops....the more I look under newer vehicles,the LESS I want to ever own one!..

I always put an aftermarket aluminum pan on my trans with a drain plug that comes out easily. Toss the stamped GM one in the trash.


Also once the fluid is dirty like that, best case is to leave it alone until the trans takes a dump. But putting in fresh fluid you replaced all the fluid that had clutch material in it from wear and accelerated the trans dying on you.

i can get the rounded off head drain plugs out every time .

IF you know how to use a air hammer/chisle then its easy with a good sharp bit and correct angle of attack to cut grove part way in flat around rounded off head then twist bit and spin the bolt loose super easy .

JUST dont go threw the pan and have to fix that.

have even done this by hand with hammer and chisle .

also works for lug locks if no key to remove and can get at the lug lock nut.
