Chevrolet Silverado: Vehicle Checks / Automatic Transmission Fluid

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Vehicle Care / Vehicle Checks / Automatic Transmission Fluid

When to Check and Change Automatic Transmission Fluid

It is usually not necessary to check the transmission fluid level. The only reason for fluid loss is a transmission leak or overheated transmission. This vehicle is not equipped with a transmission fluid level dipstick. There is a special procedure for checking and changing the transmission fluid in these vehicles. Because this procedure is difficult, this should be done at the dealer. Contact the dealer for additional information or the procedure can be found in the service manual. See Publication Ordering Information.


Use of the incorrect automatic transmission fluid may damage the vehicle, and the damage may not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Always use the correct automatic transmission fluid. See Recommended Fluids and Lubricants.

Change the fluid and filter at the scheduled maintenance intervals listed in Maintenance Schedule. Be sure to use the transmission fluid listed in Recommended Fluids and Lubricants.
