The engine in your car or truck could not efficiently deliver power to your wheels without a working transmission. The automatic transmission on your GMC R1500 draws upon a reservoir of hydraulic fluid to both power and lubricate its moving parts. Thus, an automatic transmission filter is required to trap and retain some of the impurities that could be flowing through the fluid. Your car or truck needs to have its automatic transmission filter replaced every 30,000 to 60,000 miles (unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer). Your GMC R1500 automatic transmission filter is not the same as an oil or air filter, and usually requires the transmission pan be dropped and all the fluid drained so that it can be replaced.
