Without knowing how this shop does things there are a few procedures that should be done before installing a used transmission. The trans is free from the engine and sitting on the stand but even with tilting it, it doesn't appear there is enough clearance to get it down because the exhaust crossover pipe goes cross-car right underneath it, about midway. If it's not you just add a little more fluid and get it to the right level. You're going to need to loosen the exhaust. On a newer model it might be a malfunctioning sensor or bad electrical connection. This will adjust up or down the headlight. Take your new transmission pan and put the gasket into place and feed the bolts up through the holes.
It sounds simple, and you may have tried it already, but I know that with my 1996 Chrysler Town and Country mini van, it tells how to adjust the head lights under the section---Headlights. Remove the speedometer cable and the shift linkage from the driver's side of the transmission. NickV, funny you mention the Gearwrench. Flush the cooler lines and cooler out. Now all they have is a grainy autocad dwg with numbered arrows sometimes pointing to parts. Get a 24 oz can of beer or Mikes hard lemonade.

I rolled down the hill on the avenue to the red light and got in the left hand lane because I knew I could get to a safe place to pull the truck over again. Hate to do unnecessary removal as exhaust bolts will require heat to get off and reuse. I think it is a number 20 Torx head if I remember right. But from the looks of things, that may be the easiest approach. The hardest one to get to is the one in this corner here. After checking every thing else out?.
If it's not right, add more fluid and repeat the process. Shop the extensive inventory of and! My faith in Chevy pickups is shattered. Like I said, I start all the bolts in first. Hi, I'm Mike from 1A Auto. Just let the fluid drain out. I bought a 15mm stubby during this job. Just make sure that you don't cross-thread them into the transmission, and we'll fast forward here.
We'll fast forward as Mike tightens those up. A lot of manufacturers just do this so that the back end isn't scraping on the ground when the payload is maxed. Reach inside of the marker light holes to access the tabs on the bottom of the grill which keep it in place, then push them down and pull the grill off of the truck. Of course we were 7 months out of the extended warranty we purchased. After spending the hard earned money that this thing cost, the expectation would be for the drive train to last longer than this.

I changed the sequence from the shop manual on a couple of things on installation that made the job easier.
Also considered leaving the trans up above the crossover pipe on the stand as I think I can get the slave cylinder out and a new one installed since there's about 3-4 inches of gap between the trans and bell housing. Reattached and reconnected lower half cable to transmission. And just for advice, don't think that just because your truck isn't fully squatting or you still have room under the wheel wells that your payload isn't maxed out. Your post reminded me to get a 10mm die to chase the threads on the other studs before the pipe goes back on. Figured that it just rocked back on the isolators. On older models it was likely to be a broken cable or one that was disconnected or stripped somehow.

Well all I can do at this point is wait to see what they say on Thursday. Install the new disc and pressure plate.
Built a trans jack frame out of 2x stock and attached it to a floor jack. If you mean what needs to be adjusted with the computer and the mechanics of the truck, your dealer will have to plug into the truck, and reset the computer so all of the gauges read right and the computer monitors the information right, but if your doing someting like putting a lift kit under the t … ruck and putting really outragiously big tires on it then sorry I can't help you, however if it's just upsizing from factory 15's to 16, or somthing like that, that all I know of that has to be adjusted. You want to make sure that the transmission is hot before you check it, and make sure it's here. I'm sure there's something I missed.

Using a wrench, remove the bolts that attach the transmission to the engine and the torque converter to the flywheel. The curb weight was around 4200-4500lbs.
Given enough miles, the engine and transmission will need to be rebuilt, although it is rarely necessary to rebuilt both components at the same time.
