Yep the master kit is what you want. Did you need the rebuild diagrams - instructions?

Well. No because I'm not going to be able to rebuild it just got a notice from my city saying my car needs to be off jack stands by this Friday or I am getting cited and the rebuilt kit wont get here until Wednesday. Just going to have to hope the magnet and filter picks up the metal if any is left behind. But I'm just wondering if I have to pull it again can the car support its weight with out CV axles? Because if I need to pull it I was going to push my car into my garage because my garage is not that big. Cannot get in front of the car when it's all the way in.

Yes it will you can but the car will not have park, you will need to hold the car with the emergency brake.

Okay, thanks for the information. Figured that I would have to use the parking brake because the parking paw is in the transmission. I put ever thing back together with out the rebuild kit. If it fails again then that information will help a lot if It fails. But so far it's running and shifting like it should.

Hello, unsure if I should start a new thread or not if no one reply's in 48 hours I guess I will make a new one but everything seems to be good with the car now other than I noticed a transmission leak inspected it and seen that the pan gasket seems to have kinked, is there a specific sequence to put the pan on, and what I read that the transmission pan screws are at 10 ft/IB, 120 inch pound? Also any tips would be helpfully thanks. Also thank you KEN, and ASEMASTER6371 for the amazing help when I was doing this project you guys saved me around $2,500.00.

You are welcome for the help, that what we are here for. :) Here are instructions that should help you with the transmission pan leak:

Notice: Do not use any type of grease to retain parts during the assembly of this unit. Using greases other than the recommended assembly lube changes the transaxle fluid characteristics. Using greases other than the recommended assembly lube causes undesirable shift conditions and/or filter clogging. Use TRANSJEL(TM) J 36850 or equivalent during the assembly of this unit.

1. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle.
2. Place a drain pan under the transaxle oil pan.
3. Remove the transaxle oil pan bolts (23) from the front and the sides of the oil pan.
4. Loosen the rear transaxle oil pan bolts.

Notice: Ensure care is taken NOT to damage the mating surfaces of the oil pan and of the case or oil leaks may occur.

5. Use a rubber mallet to lightly tap the oil pan or use a screwdriver to pry the oil pan loose.
6. Allow the fluid to drain.
7. Remove the remaining transaxle bolts (23).
8. Remove the oil pan (24) from the automatic transmission.
9. Remove the oil pan gasket (25).
10. Inspect the oil pan and the filter for the following foreign material:

* Metal particles
* Clutch facing material
* Rubber particles
* Engine coolant

11. Determine the source of the contamination.
12. Correct the source of the contamination.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

They are just showing you a cross section of the pan metal shape is all, it is not a part.

When I was attempting to back my car out of a parking spot a few days ago the car moved maybe an inch in Reverse. It moved fine in Drive but Reverse just kept moving a few inches.

Managed to get the car home and put it in Park. Next day, car would not move in Reverse at all, and when I shifted to Drive it also would not move.

I had the transmission fluid changed a month ago, and literally the next day after having an oil leak repaired this problem happened.

I also checked the transmission fluid and aside from it being a half quart low it looks okay.

When I shift gears I cannot feel it engage except when into Neutral and Park. In Drive or Reverse the rpm's revs but no movement.

After doing some research online I of course checked the shifter cable and all those components but they look fine. Also if you keep shifting into gear, the car eventually will move but only say once out of twenty shifts.

And now when I first start the car, there is a strange noise coming from the drivers side that goes away after idling for about five minutes.

The car also can be physically moved when in Neutral.

I am just so frustrated because the shop I use told me I probably need a transmission rebuild and after sinking over a grand into this car on various repairs I just do not have the money right now.

Any help/suggestions appreciated!

Hello,

It sounds like one of two things has happened. First does the shift lights move when you are changing gears? If not then you need to replace the transmission range sensor which is located on the transmission near the shift cable hook up. Next is if the filter was not installed correctly with the right O ring or if they forgot the O ring the fluid will not be drawn into the transmission via the fluid pump.

Here is a guide to see what I am talking about for a correct transmission service.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-service-an-automatic-transmission

Here is the transmission range sensor location. its #118

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Cheers

When the engine is cool the transmission will move the car after it is warm, it will not move. I drained the fluid from transmission and than dropped the transmission pan, in the pan was a spark plug. Question : What could cause this problem?

The plug would not cause the temperature sensitivity problem. I would wonder just how it got in there, it might make it down the dipstick tube maybe.

Usually that problem is caused by wear in the transmission. When it is cold the fluid is a bit thicker so the seals and rings on the various parts still work. As the fluid warms up it thins out and the parts stop working. A fluid change might help but not for long as those parts are just going to continue to wear.

I would say a rebuild or replacement unit is in the near future. You could try some Lucas transmission additive, but I doubt it will do much if anything.

Transmission problem
2003 Chevy Impala V8 Front Wheel Drive Automatic 145K miles

My car sometimes does not move in drive or reverse unless I restart the engine. It usually happens whenever I come to a stop, go up an incline at a low speed, or drive at low speed. The problem started about 3 days ago after I had a blown out front tire replacedd on the driver side. I would like to know how to check and/or add transmission fluid. I have reviewed my driver's manual and also searched for the info on web but I cannot find any information of how to do this. I have only found information about how to check/add transaxle fluid. Hope you will be able to help/advise. Thanks.

To check your transmission fluid, your transmission must be at normal operating temperature (about 20 minutes driving or something like that).
Then put the car in park. Shift in each gear, waiting 3 seconds in each, and come back to 'park' waiting three seconds again in each gear.
Then pop your hood, remove the transmission dipstick, wipe it clean, put it back and remove again to get a reading (just like you would do to check your oil). If your transmission fluid level is too low, add A LITTLE BIT at a time; it takes only one pint to go from bottom to top! (At least on the V6 model).
By the way you add fluid thru the dipstick tube.

When you put your car in gear, do you actually feel it shifting?
Since your car has 145000 miles, it could be more than just a low level of fluid.

I just bought it couple weeks ago and I drove it an hour away for the first time and it drove fine until I stopped and shut my car off then when I went to start it up and go it was having a hard time. Then I heard a loud grinding noise and it was barely wanting to move. Then it sounded and felt like something was dragging but nothing was and when I shut the car off it turned back on but when I put on the gas it wouldn t go forward or reverse.

Good morning.

This could be the transmission but before assuming this, the grinding concerns me.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/replace-cv-axle

Check the axles in the front end and make sure they are not broken. Jack up one side at a time and try turn the wheel and have someone watch the axle and make sure it is turning all the way to the transmission.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/symptoms-of-a-bad-cv-axle-joint

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-a-cv-joint-works

Beyond that, it is internal in the transmission.
