What Type of Transmission Fluid for a 2000 Chevy Impala?by Justin Cupler
Chevrolet dug up the shelved Impala name in 2000 and slapped in onto a four-door sedan that rode atop the aging Lumina platform. This marked the eighth generation for the Impala, though this one shared very little with any of its predecessors. The 2000 Impala came standard with a 3.4-liter V-6 engine that produced 180 horsepower, and a four-speed automatic transmission. With the numerous transmission fluid types available at part stores, knowing the exact type that your Impala takes makes trips to the parts store more efficient.
Transmission Fluid Type
The 2000 Chevrolet Impala requires Dexron-III automatic transmission fluid for proper lubrication and hydraulic function. This is a common fluid that is available at almost any auto parts store. In total, the transmission holds 10 quarts of fluid, but only requires 7.4 quart to refill it following removing the transmission pan for a basic service.
