You are watching: What type of transmission fluid for 2006 chevy impala


Hey guys, This might seem like a dumb question but I need to know. I didn"t get a manual with the car.Just wanted to know what type of fluid the 06 SS uses and how much does it hold. Gonna do my trans here in the next week or so once I get the parts. Is it just dextron 3. Or does it use another number. Also what brand to use and should it be a synthetic type or normal fluid.Just ordered 1,000 dollars in parts to upgrade the car. When I am all done I will get pics. Upgrading the entire braking system to cross drilled and slotted rotors. Thanks againJer

It should tell you in your owners manual. But a general rule of thumb, all new Dex formulas are backward compatible (exceptions noted below). IE, you can use Dex VI on a car the initially required Dex III, or Dex II... I dont think Dex II is even available anymore, and GM recommends using the most recent Dex formula in its place. Conversley, Dex formulas are NOT forward compatible, so never use Dex III for a transmission that was built with Dex VI in mind. Basically, use Dex VI...Vehicle applications NOT approved for Dex VI usage: Chevrolet Aveo and Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Vibe. CVT Auto Trans, Manual trans, power steering... may have missed some

Yupp! Although, it wouildnt hurt to crack open the owners manual and take a look. SHould be in the regular maintenance section under checking the tranny fluid.

Yeah thanks for confirming.6 Seems to be what is needed from what I have read from also. Hope this tranny last until I pay it off. But if it does blow putting in another better transmission would be a good idea.Jer
Good rule of thumb has been said on here before buy cheap change often.That being said I like the castrol fluid.
