Asked by Jan 02, 2016 at 05:35 PM about the 1989 GMC Suburban V2500 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just inherited an 89 GMC Suburban. It is a 4×4
with an automatic transmission. It apparently has
little to no transmission fluid in it. What kind of
automatic transmission fluid do I use ? How much
do I need?
