Sounds like the pressure vent tube is plugged with debris or dirt, just look for a tube that comes out on top somewhere on the trans.
it also helps us alot if we have year make and model, and if its a manual or auto trans be very detailed in the future and we can be much more specific (i.e. known tricks of the trade and other issues that are common with a known fix for it)

Why does the transmision go clunk when you move it from park to revers in my 2004 4.6 ford explorer


What I found when my F250 would go Klunk, I found out that it was low on trans fluid. After allowing it to warm up, I checked it and sure enough, it needed fluid.

After adding, no more Klunk.

Also, when I was helping a buddy change out his clutch, by accident, about a cup full of tranny gear lube, poured out onto the floor.

Not thinking that it was a big deal, we installed clutch and trans and tightened everything up. Only problem was...now it would not shift into any gear.

After messing with the linkage, I remembered the cup of fluid that poured out. There was a cap on the top of trans, so we added about a cup full of gear oil.

Wah Lah! Everything was working normally again.

Check your fluids ... hopefully it is a easy fix for you.

My toyota sienna stalled on me and when i parked reddish fluid poured ot the bottom of my van none of my gears would work.


Transmission fluid, if it poured out you have a hole in the pan or something. The trans is severely damaged

Where do I check the clutch fluid


gear box, You need get under the car to open one unscrew to empty the fluid. Then once it is empty the new liquid is poured in from another orifice which also has a screw. Unbolt it and fill the gear box with 1L of fluid. Ask the seller how much do you need to put, he might be able to tell you, but i think 1L.

Transmission fluid


You need to remove transmission dipstick, use the narow long funnel and pour the transmission fluid that way. Please check the level of transmission fluid only when vehicle was driven for at least half an hour. Park the vehicle on level surface and whit engine off check the transmission dipstick for range of fluid . If fluid is low add carefully to the center mark of the dipstick between minimum and maximum range. Drive vehicle or select each gear down and back holding your brake and at each gear for 10 seconds up and down the shifter. Check the level again and add if needed. Repeat til you have reach that level. Do not overfill it!

I cannot find the transmission dipstick


TRANSMISSION DONT HAVE DIP STICK,YOU HAVE A CHECK PLUG LOCATED UNDER TRANSMISSION NEAR THE PAN ADJACENT TO THE ENGINE OIL DRAIN PLUG.CHECK PLUG IS A METRIC 11M OR 12M METRIC BOLT.TO CHECK FLUID CAR HAS TO BE LEVEL AND ENGINE RUNNING.WHEN YOU REMOVE CHECK PLUG, IF FLUID POUR OUT YOU HAVE TOO MUCH TRANSMISSION FLUID IN TRANSMISSION, IF FLUID SLOW DRIP YOU HAVE ENOUGH FLUID IN TRANSMISSION, IF NO FLUID DONT DRIP OUT WHEN CHECK PLUG REMOVED,ADD A PINT OF TRANSMISSION FLUID AT A TIME.YOU POUR FLUID AT TOP OF TRANSMISSION UNDER THE HOOD,YOU WILL SEE A RED VENT FILL CAP, REMOVE CAP, YOU NEED A VERY LONG FUNNEL TO POUR TRANSMISSION FLUID IN THE TRANSMISSION. IF YOU HAVE TRANSMISSION SHIFTING OR SLIPPING PROBLEMS,MOST TIME TRANSMISSION DUE FOR FILTER AND FLUID CHANGE IF YOU AT THE 60000 MILES TO 120000 MILES TIME FOR FLUID AND FILTER CHANGE.

Manuel transmision is locked


check your fluid, if it is low pour some fluid in it, it could also be a bad torque converter, this happens when you stop and rev your engine before shifting from 1st to 2nd gear. you might have burnt your clutch or cracked a gear too. i hope this information helped. Be careful and drive safe!!

Cannot find where the transmission fluid would go


is the car auto or manual??
if auto you pour fluid down the tube you check your fluid at. make sure when you check the trans fluid the car is running or you will get the wrong reading.

if car is manual then you have to get a rachet and remove the plug on side of trans and pour the right gear oil into it (note not trans fluid GEAR OIL)

Car dumped fluid on driveway and now won't go into gear or move


The fluid is most likely hydraulic fluid from the slave cylinder,I would like to be able to say that's the only problem but the problem you describe indicates that something is wrong in the clutch also.You say kinda like it's stuck in gear,can you describe this better for me?

Can't find the spout to pour transmission fluid into Ford Taurus


You need a funnel to add trans fluid to the dipstick tube where u check the trans fluid level. Let me know if u need more help, Add fluid w/ engine running, shift car thru all gears to circulate fluid. Don't overfill, it's bad for the trans.
