    The transmission will have to be removed to install the pump so it needs an overhaul at that same time!! Have a transmission shop like aamco check it out to see what it needs. I think it is a free service. However they 'may' need to pull the pan to see what kind of residue is in it. How long has it been slipping?

    Not really, trans fluid is more red in color, will feel and smell different.

    these 4l60e transmissions are known for failure at approx 100k miles,do not waste time with a bandaid repair if you have that mileage, repl with factory trans from gm for approx 3300.00 and a 3yr 100k mile warranty
