You have done harm here. Engine oil goes in the engine oil reservoir, you should have added trans fluid and change filter if it is dirty or torn.

What would happen if I accidentally put transmission oil in the engine?


How much transmission fluid did you add? In the old days adding a quart of tranny fluid to the engine oil was used to loosen valve springs etc...only running a day or 2 then draining completely..and refilling with quality engine oil...If you only added a quart...you need to drain all the oil as if doing a regular oil change...do change the filter too...you should be just fine...don't put this off.

While i was doing off road driving a warnning light (a/t oil temp) turn on, i looked underneath the car and i found oil leak drop after drop, not too sure now should I change the transmition oil and filter...


Change the transmission fluid and filter. The light says fluid temp. is high, so you may have some burnt fluid-deadly for transmissions. Drop the trans. pan and look for metal shavings-too much will indicate failure of transmission parts. If not too much, you may be alright with fluid and filter change.
Stop the leak,. make sure it is trans. fluid, not motor oil. If motor oil, stop the leak and change oil and filter. I would do the transmission regardless, since the light came on.

How to check trans oil level and condition


  • There is a 8mm or 10mm plug on the back of the transmission (underneath the car) When you pull that plug if fluid comes out then it it full. If not you add fluid until it just barely comes out that hole and then the transmission is full.
  • Now you add fluid from the top of the transmission. You have to look way down in the engine bay on top of the transmission for a red or black cap. It may say "do not open" or "open by a technician only." Take and pull that cap off and this is the fill spout for the transmission. It's a fill only, not a check. Add from this spout until it comes out that little plug on the back of the transmission.
  • You will hear people call this a "sealed" transmission of "non-serviceable." Now you can tell them rubbish lol.
  • To check the condition you can look to see if it is getting black or smells burnt. After 50,000 miles the fluid needs flushed and after 100,000 miles you need to change the filter and gasket for the transmission.

Won.t shift into grear, how do i replace the tansmission filter?


TO DO A TRANSMISSION FLUID CHANGE YOU NEED HAVE TRANSMISSION FLUID ON HAND YOU NEED TRANSMISSION FILTER AND GASKET.YOU NEED 3/8 WRENCH THE RATCHET TYPE WITH METRIC SOCKETS. YOU NEED JACK TO RAISE VECHICLE SUPPORT VECHICLE ON JACK STANDS.YOU NEED A DRAIN PAN. ONCE YOU GET VECHICLE OFF GROUND.PLACE DRAIN PAN UNDER TRANSMISSION OIL PAN REMOVE OIL PAN DRAIN BOLT.LET FLUID DRAIN OUT IN DRAIN PAN THEN SCREW DRAIN PLUG BACK IN PLACE DONT OVER TIGHTEN.REMOVE OIL PAN AND GASKET. BESURE TO HAVE PAPER TOWEL ON HAND.MAKE SURE TRANSMISSION OIL PAN GASKET SURFACE CLEAN BEFORE INSTALLING NEW PAN GASKET. ONCE TRANSMISSION OIL PAN REMOVED. REMOVE THE OLD TRANSMISSION FILTER INSTALL THE NEW FILTER.THEN WITH NEW GASKET ON OIL PAN IN PLACE.OIL PAN NEED TO BE CLEAN SO THE GASKET ADHESIVE WILL HOLD PAN GASKET IN PLACE WHILE INSTALLING PAN AND GASKET TO TRANSMISSION.INSTALL OIL PAN BOLTS INSTALL THEM CRISS CROSS TORQUE PAN BOLTS TO 7 TO 10 FT LBS. LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL FOR TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY.BUY 10 QUARTS .TO BE ON SAFE SIDE SO YOU WILL HAVE ENOUGH FLUID ON HAND. IF YOU DONT HAVE NO TRANSMISSION FLUID CAPACITY. ADD 7.5 QUARTS FLUID.WAIT FOR 2 MINUTES.CHECK TRANSMISSION FLUID LEVEL ON DIP STICK. SHOULD BE ON THE FULL MARK.CRANK VECHICLE UP.LET IDLE FEW MINUTES CHECK TRANSMISSION DIP FLUID LEVEL IF DROPPED ADD LITTLE MORE.WHILE ENGINE IDLING GETTING WARM UP. KEEP EYE ON FLUID LEVEL.WHEN FLUID LEVEL STOP DROPPING. APPLY BRAKES HOLD FOOT ON BRAKES SHIFT THROUGH ALL GEARS TWO TIMES. THEN CHECK FLUID LEVEL SHOULD BE ON FULL MARK.CHECK FOR LEAKS WHILE ENGINE RUNNING.

I want to add transmission oil to my van but i cannot find transmission nut please help


There is not a nut on the transmission oil pan like what you find on an oil pan. You can either take your Van to a auto service department and get a super transmission flush (about $60-$80) which I do not recommend, as they do not change out the filter or gasket. OR:
Remove the 10-mm bolts on the pan, and change the fluid, filter and gasket yourself. Be careful as that pan is filled with fluid and will drop and splash quickly. I use a large drip pan to catch all the fluid. Add fluid slowly using a funnel, poured into the tube where the dip stick is in. When it is surely on the dip stick, I start the engine and let is circulate a few minutes. Then check the level and add more. When the engine is at normal operating temperature, I aim for near that top notch on the dip stick. Do NOT Overfill!
41TE (4-speed) has 9.1 quarts. 31TH (3-speed) has 8.5 quarts.
HINTS:
Make sure you clean both the pan, and pan-to-gasket area.(I use acetone) as well as the gasket-to-transmission area before installing the new gasket.
Tighten the pan bolts to 15 ft-lbs.
Filter to valve body srews (if equipped) 45 in-lbs.
Good Luck and let me know if this helped!

How to change the automatic transmission oil and filter. On 4 cylinder engine


Check fluid level every 12 months or 7500 miles, whichever comes first. Transmission fluid and filter should be changed every 100,000 miles. On THM 250C transmissions, intermediate (front) band requires adjustment every 60,000 miles, or as required.
1. With vehicle on level surface, apply parking brake and let engine run at curb idle. Move selector lever through all ranges, ending in "PARK". Remove dipstick and wipe clean, reinstall, then remove again and check fluid level mark on dipstick. Fluid level should check between "ADD 1 PT." and "FULL HOT" marks on dipstick.
RECOMMENDED FLUID Use only Dexron II or equivalent automatic transmission fluid.
CAUTION: If vehicle has been operated for an extended period of time at high speed, or in city traffic in hot weather, or if vehicle has been pulling a trailer, an accurate fluid level cannot be determined until fluid has cooled down (approximately 30 minutes after vehicle has been parked).
So let's get started... 1. With vehicle raised and drain pan placed under transmission, remove front and side transmission oil pan bolts. Loosen rear pan bolts approximately 4 turns each.
2. Carefully pry pan loose with screwdriver, allowing fluid to drain. Remove remaining bolts and oil pan with gasket. Remove screen/filter-to-valve body bolts and remove screen/filter with gasket.
3. Thoroughly clean pan and screen with solvent and dry with compressed air. Paper type filters should be replaced. Install new gasket or "O" rings, lubricated with clean oil, into screen/filter assembly.
4. Install screen/filter assembly to transmission. Use new pan gasket and install pan. Add proper amount of fluid to transmission through filler tube.
5. Start engine with shift selector lever in "PARK" position and with parking brake set. Check fluid level and add as required. CAUTION: DO NOT overfill.

Best of luck :)

Saturn SC2 manual transmission modification


Manual transmision gears actually bathe in oil and distrubute the lubrication around the gearbox simply by the gears being connected to each other. In these boxes, the oil is not pumped as it is in automatic transmissions.

Some automatics build up oil pressure to shift gears while others use computer control. Manual trannies do build up pressure slightly because the of the meshing gears and the forcing and displacing of oil between the teeth, but nothing like an automatic.

The fluid in auto transmissions is pumped through the filter like it is in the engine. Since manual transmissions don't have a pressurized oil system, you will need add a suitable pump which will take oil from the lowest point in the tranny case and run it through a filter head (available at any hydraulic supply house) and from the filter output, back into the tranny.

You could position the filter in the engine compartment if you like. It sounds like a lot of work with little benifit. You will still need to drill into the tranny to access the oil and back in to replenish it.

I would recommend placing a magnetic plug on the drain (if there is drain) to catch the worn metal parts. If your really eager, just change the tranny oil more often and clean the metal off the magnetic drain plug.
