transmission fluid change.

OK. I took my vett in to change the filter and fluid. When I got her back and was driving home she was running hot at idle with oil pressure at 19. When I drive temp drops to 200 and oil pressure to 29. When I got home, tried to check oil level but it was getting too dark. Will do it in the morning. QUESTION. WILL BEING LOW ON OIL. USE HIGH TEMP AND LOW PRESSURE. I this.k the knuckle heads drained some of my oil instead of my transmission. I do not have any leaks and just had a oil change two weeks ago. I also did not have this issue before putting her in for service.

well, I really do not see it as a possibility that the mech mistook the engine for the trans since the trans is in the back.

Are you getting the "low oil" light message?

Yes. The C5 is NOTORIOUS for doing some crazy things when the battery is bad. The are a multitude of documented issues all over the many Corvette forums. You situation is nothing but another example of those kind of issues.

Havent been driving the vett for a few days. Drove her today with no issues until I pulled into the driveway. Oil back to 19 psi, temp to 225 and volts to 13.5. WTF over.

You are talking about engine oil temp and pressure, right? and the only thing the mechanic serviced was the transmission filter and fluid?

I couldn't fully understand your situation and I'm assuming your electrical problems are fixed or nonexistent, but the first thing I would do is check the engine oil dipstick and make sure the engine oil isn't red (tranny fluid) and the level is good.

Then check the tranny fluid using this procedure, which I ripped from another source because it is written better than I could explain:

4L60-E AUTOMATIC TRANSAXLE FLUID CHECKING PROCEDURE



Start the engine and allow the engine to idle until the transmission fluid normal operating temperature has been reached.
Depress the brake pedal and move the shift lever through the gear ranges, pausing a few seconds in each range. Return the shift lever to the PARK range.
Raise the vehicle on a hoist. The vehicle must be level, with the engine running and the shift lever in the PARK range. CAUTION: The engine must be running when the transmission fluid fill plug is removed, or excessive fluid loss will occur. Transmission fluid may be hot. Since the actual fluid level is unknown, stand clear when removing the fill plug. Have a container ready to capture any lost fluid. Do not turn the engine off with the fill plug removed, as you can be injured by hot transmission fluid being expelled out of the oil fill opening.


Remove the transmission plug. IMPORTANT: The transmission fluid may darken with normal use and does not always indicate contamination or oxidation.
Check the fluid level. The fluid level should be even with the bottom of the threaded plug hole.
Add DEXRON III automatic transmission fluid in increments of 0.5 L until the fluid drains from the plug hole.



I can say with experience that if you check the tranny fluid level when it is cold and not running, you will probably end up about 3 quarts below the actual capacity.

So is your complaint that the oil pressure is low or the car is running hot?

Question is why my voltage is now at 13.5 instead of 14.5, my oil pressure at 19 to 30 instead of 40 and my water temp is at 225 instead of 198.
I have recently replaced the radiator, water pump, thermostat, belts, and Battery. This issue is intermittent. Drove 220 miles last night and all was fine.

The oil pressure could be the sender but I have never seen the oil pressure stay at any one reading so that I wouldn't worry about. You temperatures are withing spec so that would not concern me either. Now your battery issue. Did you torque your battery terminals to 11fp's? This DOES make a difference.

I did tourq the terminals down. I also took the vett in to check the alt. They told me that the Battery and Alt were good. They (A1 Battery Mechanic) stated anything over 13 volts was good. I thought the corvette system needed to run on the 14.5 volts. I have always had 14.5 volts. The battery was dead one day so I bought a new one. Now it goes between 13 and 14.5. I do not know what all this will effect.

When I first picked up my car it threw a low voltage code. ( Sorry do not remember the code). They also sugested a new battery. I did not believe them at the time due to I never had a problem..Ever. A few days later she would not turn over. I got her started and bought a new battery. With the new battery, all was great for about two days, 14.5 volts. Now I have the stated issues, volt flux, oil pressure and temp and none of this is continuous.
