• PlowSite Homepage Upgrade

    Hello again PlowSite community,

    I wanted to post a quick note to let you know that the homepage of PlowSite will experience a major upgrade next week. We’re always looking for ways to improve our users’ experience on the site, and felt that this upgrade was needed and long overdue.

    With this upgrade, you’ll now see the top trending posts as soon as you visit PlowSite, and these will be updated throughout the day. You can also easily access videos and photos. As always, we encourage you to include videos and photos in your own posts to share with your fellow PlowSite users.

    Be assured that all of the forums, content and data that you’ve been accustomed to will remain intact, as will all current site features. You’ll also be able to easily access the full list of forums directly from our new homepage.

    We’re excited to bring you this change, and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Thanks, PlowSite Team

Trans trouble


I ourchased a chevy dually with a three speed tranny. It seems to be a good truck but it drinks gas and iii put too much trans fluid in it and now i cant get it right because the rubber thing on the dipstick is giving me a falty reading. Anyways now i am having trouble even putting it in reverse or shifting into a gear. It slips now too because of the overflow of fluid. I just want to know if it will shift easier if i take out some of the fluid or should i get a new dipstick and drain all the fluid and start over. I dont want to risk burning it.


I would definatley drain the fluid and while your at it replace the filter too. I always install a drain plug in the pan, it makes it easier to drain it the next time. Too much fluid will foam and boil out the dipstick tube and cause all sorts of problems. JB
