Have a 2000 impala that sometimes jerks whene leaving a stop light or stop sighn. Intrmittant - does it only whene air temp and engine temp are warm ,usually above 60 degrees. Its perfect whene cold . During both conditions the transmission shift points are firm and crisp ( where there supposed to be ). If i leave the light or sign rolling it doesnt do it, only if i come to a dead stop. Almost seems to be a low fluid condition - checked several times it seems ok but fluid seems to be more (almost) clear than blood red like iam used to. Also has ALOT of bubbles on it at times but not always- doesnt smell burned it seems as tho something is grabbing & letting go then grabbing and letting go again. I plan on doing a filter and fluid change soon, does this tranny use DEXTRON 3 ? and iam told the pan gasket is reusable???? i always checked the fluid with tranny warm and idling

There is a bulletin on this symptom and it has to do with the pressure regulator solenoid. You can get the complete bulletin from alldatadiy or directly from the dealer. I recommend joining AlldataDiy as you can get the complete diagrams and instructions to replace the defective parts. Transman

How many miles on it?
Ever been serviced?
Fluid color red is only the amount of red dye that is in it.

As transman says get and go threw thw TSB.

Will take 6-7 qts for filter change.
If the thick rubber hard shell pan gasket you can reuse it.

I would use dex 3 if you have some or can get some.
They quit making Dex 3.
Gm says change over to GM Dexron 6.

I would stay with Dex 3 or go back to the mercon/dexron.
Carquest and a few other places have mercon/dexron.

Stay away from the multi purpose or fit all fluid that a lot of parts places and jiffie lube and wallmart push.

Yes Lube gaurd red if you use dexron 111 or dexron/mercon fluid.



Ford Mercon and Dexron 3 is now Dexron 6

A lot of parts places and even some so called Ford techs/dealers.
Are saying to use Multi purpose or Mercon V or other stuff..
Doing so may mess up you transmission.

Ford Mercon was fazed out to Mercon 3 several years ago.
Now Mercon 3 has been fazed out.

The only approved replacement for Mercon or Dexron 3 is Mercon 6.




All DEXRON®-III licenses expired at the end of 2006 and will not be renewed. That's why you're seeing multi-use fluid.
Beyond that date GM will only support the use of DEXRON®-VI fluids for use in Hydra-Matic transmissions. Fluids sold in the market after that date bearing claims such as “suitable for use in DEXRON®-III applications” or similar wording should be avoided. DEXRON®-VI licensed fluids are fully backward compatible and can be used in all applications covered by earlier GM ATF specifications. The use of unlicensed fluids and/or non GM approved aftermarket additives may prove detrimental to transmission performance and void warranty coverage.

General Motors DEXRON®-VI Global Service-Fill Specification

During early 2005 General Motors released a newly developed automatic transmission fluid (ATF) for the factory fill of all GM Powertrain stepped gear automatic transmissions. The new fluid provides significantly improved performance in terms of friction durability, viscosity stability, aeration and foam control and oxidation resistance. In addition, the fluid has the potential to enable improved fuel economy and extended drain intervals. Since the performance of the new fluid far exceeded that of the DEXRON®-III service-fill fluids available at the time it became necessary to upgrade the DEXRON® service-fill specification in order to ensure that similar fluids were available in the market for service situations. This latest upgrade to the service- fill specification is designated DEXRON®-VI.

Since General Motors introduced the first ATF service-fill specification in 1949 it has been periodically necessary to upgrade the specification. This upgrading process ensures that available service fill fluids are of an appropriate quality for use in transmissions that have been designed around the factory fill fluid performance. It should be noted that, as with previous upgrades, DEXRON®-VI fluids are designed to be backward compatible with earlier transmission hardware. More importantly, earlier type fluids are not forward compatible with transmission hardware that was designed to use DEXRON®-VI fluid, i.e. DEXRON®-III is not compatible with the most recently designed transmissions, and the use of these earlier type fluids could result in transmission damage. All current calibrations and certification tests are now conducted with DEXRON®-VI ATF. DEXRON®-III fluids should not be used for these applications where the owners manual recommends the use of DEXRON®-VI. GM does not license or support obsolete ATF specifications or the use of fluids that are being marketed against cancelled specifications.

All DEXRON®-III licenses expire at the end of 2006 and will not be renewed. Beyond that date GM will only support the use of DEXRON®-VI fluids for use in Hydra-Matic transmissions. Fluids sold in the market after that date bearing claims such as “suitable for use in DEXRON®-III applications” or similar wording should be avoided. DEXRON®-VI licensed fluids are fully backward compatible and can be used in all applications covered by earlier GM ATF specifications.

The use of unlicensed fluids and/or non GM approved aftermarket additives may prove detrimental to transmission performance and void warranty coverage.

There is a published list of GM-approved brands of DEXRON®-VI (see page two of this release). This list represents the companies who have conducted the appropriate testing and received GM approval. Company name, license number, and brand name are shown. This list will be updated on a regular basis as more approved products are added.

Crunch and Transman yes the car has been serviced, purchased from original owner and looked at all repair records, at some point had 2600 in trans work done. Also saw the reciept for remanned motor due to overheat.I changed filter and fluid - fluid was better than i thought it was- inside pan was clean with only a small amount of sludge by magnet, i cut filter apart to look inside and found very very little (almost nothing ) in it. Put it all back together and seems not as pronounced but more often? I DID as Transman asked and got alldata info he is right the tsb sounds like my problem, i can get line pressure info, descriptions, but whene i try to figure out how to replace it, all it tells me is inside trans. Can this repair be done in the vehical and how involved is it. My picture loos like it might have 2 o- rings that push into something and then bolt with a type of retainer similar the old distributers If i have to have thi done in a shop about how much should i expect to pay (only gesstimate) ??

The pressure regulater is inside the tramission side pan.
First step is gettig the side pan off.
The All Data should give you some helpon that end.
Scrach around in it and call or e mail them if you need help with finding the info on it.
